Redfall review – already in a coffin | The Loadout

Callum writes: "Each Redfall mission feels like a half-finished jigsaw. The gunplay is sluggish, unchallenging, and disappointing.

It doesn’t help when most encounters with enemies expose issues with Redfall’s AI. Whether it’s being obstructed by furniture while chasing you, or simply not noticing the sniper bullet you left in their friend’s head, enemies in Redfall are not engaging, reactive, or smart. It ruins the immersion entirely.

I wanted to love Redfall, but after plenty of hours spent in the lonely town of Redfall, disappointment now replaces my initial excitement. Let’s just hope this isn’t the final nail in the coffin for Arkane.

Shoddy performance, sluggish gunplay, and a boring story have left me drained – just like the victims of the town."

Bethesda to keep working on Redfall after Starfield success

Pete Hines has said Bethesda is not a company to "quit or abandon stuff just because it didn't start right" when speaking on Redfall's launch.

Oh of course completely believe him. I'm sure the next big update for elder scrolls blades is just around the corner and the promised ps5/series/pc and VR release is so close.

I'm still waiting on the Fallout 4 60fps patch. They announced it a long time ago.

Gamepass to pad it. On xbox there's no way to gauge success without gymnastics

Currently sits at 4th for sales on steam and isn't in top 5 of being played as of rn. The only category it's leading is revenue.

Well, yes.

And it is still early access, the game will be available to the masses in 2 days.

And this is steam only btw.

DickyD122617d ago

Reaching with this one. Starfield isn't even in the top 5 of daily players or current players (currently would be at 7th). Also you are comparing rereleased games to a brand new launch bad comparison bud.

"Also you are comparing rereleased games to a brand new launch bad comparison bud."

I am comparing the all-time peaks (!!!) of these released games with a game that is not yet available for everyone.

DickyD122617d ago

Yes you're comparing a BRAND new game to rereleased games that have already been played. Your whole point was lackluster. Compare it to bg3 or counter-strike and it looks bad.

@dickyD1226 keep in mind there are many players on PC who are utilizing Gamepass to play and therefore not reflected in Steam's #s

Patting themselves on the shoulder because starfield wasn't received all that well. Trying to reassure the minions.

aconnellan16d ago

That’s kind of objectively wrong though. I get that everyone has opinions, but it’s been generally really well received, metacritic puts it comfortably at 88 next to titles like Horizon Forbidden West, GT7, Final Fantasy XVI, etc.

Also puts it above games like Miles Morales, Death Stranding, Ghosts of Tsushima, etc.

Do you class all of those as not well received too?

S2Killinit16d ago (Edited 16d ago )

Let me correct you.

You mean after they limited the reviews to the ones they wanted?

Starfield is at 86 with only 55 reviews. (Not 88)

Horizon FW is at 88 with 126 reviews.

And after MS made it sound like starfield was going to be a revolutionary game.

wiz719117d ago

@DickyD the game isn’t even out yet and it’s #4 lol it’s only in early access right now .. the ppl playing it are players that had reserved it

attilayavuzer16d ago

People that literally paid $100 for it

EvertonFC16d ago

I know right, don't you need to sell like 10m copies and make a profit or loads of increased GP subs.
Starfield did neither of these, although I have to say it's a good game for the most part.

Can’t listen to this guy, he has clearly never played Redfall.
