Hardcore Gamer: "Being a critic can sometimes lead to an odd juxtaposition of games. While your average gamer may play Tomb Raider and naturally progress to BioShock Infinite, I had the privilege of playing The Last of Us before transitioning into…Ride to Hell: Retribution. That’s not to say that I’m holding it against the title by unfairly comparing it; The Last of Us was a special experience that’s rarely obtained in the medium. Instead, I at best had hope for a strange “so bad its good” experience along the lines of Deadly Premonition. But not only did Ride to Hell turn out to hardly be playable, but a dying relic of a time where uninformed gamers could be bilked out of a quick buck from a studio desperate to salvage whatever financial gain possible from a failed project."
