It reaches consoles and PC Redeemer: Enhanced Edition, the enhanced version of the intense brawler that saw the light in 2017.

Redeemer: Enhanced Edition is an intense game of action

Redeemer: Enhanced Edition is an intense game of actionIn which you must wipe out a multitude of enemies using the fists, the environment and the various weapons you will find along the way, developing everything from an aerial perspective whose camera approaches and slows down to see the most brutal movements. Originally released on Steam in 2017, this version features several improvements and novelties, such as the local cooperative, new character classes or adjustments to the balance of certain levels.

His story focuses on Vasily, an elite violence-addicted agent who once worked for one of the world’s largest cyber weapons manufacturers. When this corporation attempted to turn him into one of its cyborg soldiers against his will, he miraculously escaped to an isolated monastery, where for 20 years he tried to find peace among his fellow monks. Now, the corporation has found its trail and is approaching its location by wiping out everything it finds in its path and, in so doing, they have given it one last chance at redemption.

The plot is quite simple and has not yet convinced us, with characters that are not charismatic and difficult to empathize with beyond the protagonist. It is narrated, of course, by animated illustrations of good quality. His texts come to us in Spanish, so you won’t have any problem following the argument.

The mechanics are simple

The mechanics are simpleAlthough it is easy to confuse some buttons in the early stages of the adventure. Here we have a combination of fists and kicks, a dodge rolling on the ground, the counterattack for when rivals turn into a reddish tonality, the possibility of surprising them in the back to end them with a single attack and use a multitude of weapons and objects that we find on stage or fallen enemies. There are white weapons such as knives, axes and wood with which to beat rivals, pistols with which to attack at a distance or even barrels and chairs that we can throw at them, among many others. They all have a durability, so it’s up to you to use them head on.

When the time comes, you will be able to disarm or dismember the enemies to use their own limbs as hand-to-hand combat weapons. As you can see, it’s an adult theme game, finding enough gore throughout the blood-shaped adventure and a lot of brutality. Unfortunately, it is a combat system that in the long run becomes somewhat tedious and repetitive, finding some peaks of difficulty that do not turn out to be as balanced as we would like to introduce another adventure the  yes, is very fun to be chaining together combos to finish them while we launched counterattacks, dodge, or use their weapons against themselves.

By using your skills and weapons, you will gradually gain points that you can invest in improving the character’s skill with fists, kicks and hand-to-hand weapons in the monk section, or with firearms in the Soldier section. Throughout the game you will also find manuscripts and tablets that further enhance the protagonist’s abilities, being hidden through the scenes.
