Outriders reviews and comments

Concise Review:
It’s a generic, cookie cutter, looter shooter that doesn’t excel or innovate in any specific area. But the combat, RPG mechanics, and the easy sci fi story and world locations are all competent and result in a fun, laid back time.


Journal Style Review:
Immediate first impressions. I don’t think the characters, or writing are going to be anything special. Feels generic. Graphics looks fine for the most part, NPCs look a bit rough. Weird pacing to the opening. A lot of short play times followed by cutscenes that are broken up by load times, albeit short ones. I like the gore though and I’m hopeful the world and wildlife will look nice. Also by the time I was at class selection I was kind of digging the story. It’s an easy going fun set up and there were some good deaths early on.

Gameplay is pretty good so far. It’s fast paced and fluid and the different abilities have been fun to experiment with. The life stealing mechanics encourage intense firefights. The difficulty has been challenging but not frustrating.

I might really like this game... The combat looks great and feels pretty good. I love the gore. I like the wildlife and the different world locations so far. Also, the armor looks sweet. I made this badass space Viking. I love his style.

I’m actually liking the sectioned off linear levels system. I thought it would feel like a cheap open world imitation but it’s aiming for something different. It provides tight linear combat sections. I’m skeptical of the endgame content, but I’ve never been interested in endgame content before. This game seems to be providing more of an actual campaign than say destiny. It feels closer to the division 2 which I thought provided a solid campaign. 

I like the waypoint finder but also the broken map sections are sometimes confusing. I wish we didn’t need to use the truck to go from location to location. 

While no different than destiny or the division 2, I still am enjoying the constant sense of progression from new loot. 

Current Score: B+
