    Sup3rCondor's Outriders (XBX X/S)

    [April 17, 2021 01:34:38 PM]
    I finished the game!

    The gameplay stayed strong pretty much all throughout the game. This game was advertised as a co-op game, but I played the whole thing solo. I never really felt like I needed more people to play with. The game works great as a single player game. As I previously mentioned, the gameplay is fast and exciting.

    The game suffers from the same thing that Revenge of the Sith does. The overall story and world are fascinating and interesting. However, the moment to moment scenes and dialogue is not good, and even really bad sometimes. There were plenty of head scratching moments when characters would say one liners that didn't fit the situation at all. Given that Bulletstorm and Gears of War Judgment had very passable dialogue, this is disappointing. It doesn't drag the game too far down though.

    Finally I want to express my gratitude for gamepass that allowed me to play this game in day one with my subscription. It really is the best deal in gaming, and its only getting better. Anyone who games on Xbox or PC should be subscribed.

    The more I play this game the more I like it! The gameplay is fast paced and super fun. There is an interesting mechanic with the class I chose (not sure if every class has the ability) in which as I shoot enemies, I regenerate health. This keeps the action high as I run out of cover to shoot as many enemies as possible.

    The story is pretty interesting, but the voice acting is pretty low quality. Thankfully its not bad enough to take away from the experience.

    I'm definitely going to beat this game, I'm not sure how much time I have left in it.

    Outriders is a 1-3 player co-op game. Continuing to play shows that the game is designed for this. Unfortunately I don't have people to play with, so I'm enjoying the game on my own. The story continues to be extremely cheesy. The voice acting is mostly garbage. The game feels like a Michael Bay movie. I'm reading onling that the story will only take 12-14 hours to complete, so this is a game that I will likely finish.

    (Technically I'm playing this on my Xbox Series X) I downloaded the game from gamepass just to try it out. I sat down with my sister at the and of the day yesterday to try it for an hour or so. The first thing she said when we got into the character creator was "these graphics are amazing!"

    That made me realize how in modern times graphics are something that we take for granted. Most games just have amazing graphics these days with few exceptions. There are games that stand out, but even cheaper budget games still look remarkable. Anyway, moving on...

    The beginning of the game finds the player character a part of an initial scout team of colonists from earth on a new planet. Your team finds a crazy storm that kills everyone, and your character is infected with somethings and is forced to go into cryo sleep. You awake 31 years later to find that the mistakes of earth have been repeated. The land is engulphed by war. The player soon finds that the storm gave their character special powers. They get to choose from one of four classes. They fight their way through some soldiers and are soon brought to one of the leaders of the people. The Main leader turns out to be one of the scientist from the original scouting party. The voice acting so far is pretty bland. Most character performances are pretty flat.

    Thats as far as I got in the story. The gameplay is a pretty fun so far. Its like a run and gun Gears of War. The player can take cover, but it almost feels wiser to blend cover shooting with running around the battlefield out of cover. Like Bulletstorm before it, Outriders looks a lot like Gears of War. The art styles are very similar. That makes sense given People Can Fly developed the underrated Gears spin-off Gears of War: Judgment. I haven't played much more than an hour of the game yet, so I don't have a true opinion yet.
