REDEEMER is an intense Brawler where you will punch, hack and blast your way through enemies using fists, hammers, fire arms and even the environment. It grabs the genre by the throat and drags it into 2017 in brutal style by adding a deep melee combat system and numerous unique types of kills. Redeemer is the brawler for those who love brawlers and have been waiting for a modern take on the genre!
Play as Vasily, an elite operative who once worked for one of the biggest Cybernetic Weapons Manufacturers in the world. Officially working in security, you were tasked with infiltration, assassination, extortion and even torture. When eventually the corporation decided to turn you into one of its cyborg soldiers, you manage to narrowly escape to a secluded monastery deep in the snowy mountains.
For 20 years you tried to find peace and harmony amongst your fellow monks, but you are still too haunted by your murderous past to find either. Now after all of these years the corporation is finally closing-in on your location, and in so doing they have given you one last shot at redemption.
I would be fine with a twinstick shooter but unfortunately gunplay isn't very smooth either. in fact for me it's the worst aspect of the game. the Arkham series has similar fight/block/counter mechanics, enemy groups had 1 or 2 guys with guns and plenty of space to retreat and lots of possibilities to counter. here you have half the pack shooting at you while you can't even pick up ammo to refill your gun. and even after a tactical retreat they always know exactly where you are. in my eyes this game should have been a straight brawler with very few enemies with firearms to spice up encounters, this is just not fun and I don't feel powerful at all.
Redeemer is an interesting mix of Hotline Miami with Streets of Rage. It a simple and fast action game without any complex system or skill trees. The story is not very interesting but let's be honest. In this type of game you don't expect any masterpiece, developers decided to put the emphasis on the gameplay and this is where the game shines. I recommend.
