Playing Rebel Galaxy Outlaw has been some of my happiest moments in gaming this year. It may not be the best games of 2019, but it’s definitely up there. You play as Juno Markev, hunting down a killer. You fly around space, meeting folks at various space stations, clearing off enemies across various sectors, gathering information, upgrading your spacecraft, and being a space trucker/cowboy in general. The music is fantastic, with a massive collection of fantastic songs. Trust me, this game was made to chill with.
The controls are snappy, and the shooting and maneuvering feels great. And the explosions are bombastic. The story is not the strongest, but the characters you meet along the way are personable, and keep the plot going. But you’re primarily here to shoot and explore, and Rebel Galaxy Outlaw delivers that perfectly.
Fun combat and exploration
Tons of content
Score – 9/10
Out of cash, out of luck, out on the fringe. Juno Markev has a killer to tail, a debt to pay, and more trouble headed her way. Rebel Galaxy Outlaw takes place in a greasy, blue-collar world of outlaws, truckers, cops and thieves.
Strap into a variety of spacecraft, settle a score in a filthy space-bar over a game of 8-ball, rock out to over 24 hours of music, and engage in white-knuckle dogfights.
In the Dodge Sector it’s hard to get by – and even harder to get even.
