Redeemer is an over the top action brawler where you play as a monk, who has come under attack. It’s pretty simplistic in it’s combat, but everything feels really tight and fluid. Kicks and punches easily flow into combos, and you can pick up items off the ground and bash enemies with it. You can also interact with the environment and pull off some really gory yet spectacular finishing moves, and it’s really satisfying overall. You are always encouraged to stay on the move, mixing it up between dodges and punches. Redeemer is also quite a looker, with some really flashy visuals and slow motion effects. Overall, really fun, especially in co-op!
Score – 7/10

Play as Vasily, an elite operative who once worked for one of the biggest Cybernetic Weapons Manufacturers in the world. Officially working in security, you were tasked with infiltration, assassination, extortion and even torture. When eventually the corporation decided to turn you into one of its cyborg soldiers, you manage to narrowly escape to a secluded monastery deep in the snowy mountains.
For 20 years you tried to find peace and harmony amongst your fellow monks, but you are still too haunted by your murderous past to find either. Now after all of these years the corporation is finally closing-in on your location, and in so doing they have given you one last shot at redemption.
