How the Indie Hit Does Gothic Co-op Shooters Better Than Redfall
Arkane Studios, renowned for its thought-provoking games with intriguing twists, has recently released Redfall, a vampire-hunting, occult co-op shooter. However, this latest offering from the studio falls short of expectations, deviating from Arkane’s track record of delivering memorable and unique experiences. Redfall suffers from clunky systems, lackluster gunplay, and persistent performance issues, failing to live up to its potential as another standout title in Arkane’s portfolio.
The opening mission of Redfall sets a disappointing tone, with uninspired environments reminiscent of mediocre shooters from the early 2010s and bullet-sponge enemies akin to the worst parts of Borderlands 3. This underwhelming experience left players unimpressed and yearning for more.
