Redemption Reapers Review Cons:

  • A lot to take in.
  • The first cutscene is a long one.
  • No way to configure shortcuts for actions and the like.
  • Cannot rebind controls.
  • No graphics settings outside of a brightness slider.
  • Doesn’t offer any camera control.
  • No game speed sliders.
  • Hard to get a lay of the battlefield as you don’t know what’s in it or scenery or just decoration.
  • Having the level-up pop-up take over the screen and pause the action gets old really fast.
  • Never sure how many of the action points you are using up at a time.
  • Always a fear (and rightly so) that you will miss relics and chests as the battle finishes before you are ready.
  • No difficulty settings.
  • Early on skirmishes are not that great of an investment.
  • The upgrade menus are confusing as you never know what is needed to upgrade a weapon.
  • Whoever collects items has them and you have to press a load of menus to give the weapon to someone else.
  • After the initial excitement of unlocks and new characters the game kind of plateaus and gets a bit repetitive.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
