Outriders

Critics Consensus (Skip It)

Outriders offers a satisfying combat loop and rewarding dungeon crawling, but it’s hard to overlook the game’s deep structural problems – obnoxious cutscenes, repetitive mission design, and a dull, poorly acted sci-fi story make this looter largely forgettable.

Game Info

Outriders is a 1-3 player co-op RPG shooter set in an original, dark and desperate sci-fi universe. As mankind bleeds out in the trenches of Enoch, you’ll create your own Outrider and embark on a journey across the hostile planet. With rich storytelling spanning a diverse world, you’ll leave behind the slums and shanty towns of the First City and traverse forests, mountains and desert in the pursuit of a mysterious signal. Combining intense gunplay with violent powers and an arsenal of increasingly twisted weaponry and gear-sets, OUTRIDERS offers countless hours of gameplay.

63/100

Buried by an unsatisfying combat loop and bad campaign, Outriders is a forgettable loot game that ends right as it’s getting started.

3.5/5 stars

Outriders is a brash and bold looter shooter that will keep you entertained through the campaign and side missions, but its endgame content gets repetitive fast.

6/10

Outriders juggles some truly captivating ideas for the looter shooter genre, yet fails to deftly execute them. While it succeeds in combining traditional third person shooting with rewarding dungeon crawling, its messy matchmaking, repetitive mission design, and a dull sci-fi story hold People Can Fly back from delivering to their fullest potential.
