Description: Redout is a tribute to the old racing monsters such as F-Zero, WipeOut, Rollcage, and POD. It is designed to be an uncompromising, fast, tough and satisfying driving experience, soaked in that vertigo that stands at the core of the arcade racing genre. The floating system and driving models are based on physics: each turn, slope, hard braking, acceleration, each turn and twist of the track will apply a unique force to the ship. A sharp low-polygon style blends meshes and terrains with the latest state-of-the-art shading and lighting effects provided by the Unreal Engine 4, creating beautiful and instantly recognisable aesthetics. Breezy coastlines, eerie frozen landscapes, vast desert plains: the melancholic, dystopian atmosphere of a semi abandoned Earth is the background for the most high-speed, tense and beautiful futuristic racing clashes.

Review: Sadly for Redout: Enhanced Edition its high price point of £29.99 will put a lot of people off buying it, but I have to say this is a very serious game and practically a AAA title with 50+ tracks to race on, upgrades, unlockables and even online multiplayer action. It also looks great and the music is fast and furious making the gameplay feel even more amazing, especially with a gamepad. Anyone who loves games like Wipeout and Radial-G: Racing Revolved will be right at home here. So the real question is, is this really worth the asking price? I have to say both yes and no. With the lack of online players, there is only really the single-player mode to play and while that is vast in the career mode it is still best waiting for this to be in a sale. But this is one game well worth a download and I for one love it, even if it is a little overpriced.
