Ride to Hell: Retribution Review | Hardcore Gamer

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."

Thats a shame, had great potential. I was excited for this, until I watched some gameplay footage. Reminded me of the old Lucas Arts game Full Throttle.

Not surprised.
Always have to worry about those games that seemingly fall of the face of the earth, resurface and then, rather fast, release.

It is funny how this would be put alongside TLoU, for the same price, in a videogame retailer (although I imagine this game will cost about 5 quid new in a months time...), i can't imagine who would buy this tripe!

This has been in the works for a few years and early on it promised to be an open-world game with driving, fighting, building up vehicles, and leveling up via "respect", a la Saints Row.

When I saw it listed at Gamestop for 30 beans, I thought it would help tide me over until SR4 and GTA5 come out. Luckily I was able to cancel my order after seeing some actual gameplay. I was horrified to see how awful the driving looked, the ancient quicktime fighting, the need to shoot enemies ten times in the head, frequent loading screens, and absolutely no open-world.

Deep Silver should be ashamed to put their name on this cobbled together stinking pile of putrid pixels.
