Outriders Review – “Buy, Wait Till it Works, Never Touch?”

I am not one of those bigger gaming websites no 2-minute reviews here only details. Videogame reviews all the time. So if you are tired of short reviews, ones that don’t discuss all the games, this is the right place. No big website 2-minute stuff here.

Coverage includes ps4, PS5, XBox series X, Xbox one, pc, Xbox 360, Wii, Wiiu, Switch, and digital storefronts like Steam, as well as companies like Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo

  1. You have to always be online for a sp game? Give us an offline mode devs.

    Sucks that this wasn't on PC gamepass, I would of loved to play it.

    I do have Steam too but can't bring myself to spend $79.99 cdn on a game these days. We're in a pandemic, everyone wants to save money.
    If it was 39.99 from the get go, I'd of bought it instantly.

    Greedy companies.

    Anyways worth full price or wait for deep sale?

  2. Why does Square/Enix keep trying to make these “Live Service” games, they’re obviously not that good at it (cough cough Avengers)

  3. Oof he said Bass doesn't matter… I can hear Davi504 cocking his slap hand in a godly way.

  4. Thanks for saving me money. Outriders seems like any other online service game. I do not need another generic looter shooter. These games get redundant, repetitive, & boring after an hour.

    I dont know why people keep hyping this game up, but then again, anything that comes to gamepass gets praises, regardless if its worth my time or not.

  5. One of the few reviews in which I hard disagree. This has been one of the better looter shooters I've played in a long time. The first few days were absolutely rough however that didn't take away from the core gameplay experience which was and still is fantastic after 40 hours. The build variety alone is going to push that playtime well into the 100's.

    Also HARD disagree about the Class Tree. I don't understand how you can recognize the importance of Skill Synergy and then give a giant shrug to the Class Tree which augments those skills. I can tell you that a Tempest only focused Pyromancer (shorter cooldowns, huge explosions) plays a lot different than someone speccing into the Survive tree (crowd control for days).

    . . .I dunno; this honestly feels like a review that needed to take more time to really let things settle into place instead of making sure it got out within launch week.

  6. want to play this game but the endgame looks like a repetitive loop of grinding the same missions over and over to get loot that might help you do the SAME missions over and over some more

  7. Looks like a Gears Of War re-skin tbh

  8. So…another half baked cake? Seems to be the norm these days.

  9. I just got the PC version on Sunday, and even though it's not really my cup of tea, so far it's fun…no downtime or bugs really. Not like that Outer Worlds, which was a hot mess.

  10. Why is it that every time i get to connect with matchmaking the hosts always just stand still.

  11. I really do enjoy it. Haven't found a group yet in matchmaking. Hard for it to get out of the shadow of destiny and division 2. Feels like a great, amazing xbox 360 game. Would be awesome in a group. Can't climb? No verticality? Lots of inviable walls? After playing ac valhalla, watch dogs, destiny, division, it just feels so restrictive.

  12. I've been very much enjoying it now that the servers aren't dying

  13. The only thing worse than the disastrous launch, is the number of braindead fanboys not only defending the botech release, but even worse defending its always online requirement. Unbelievable

  14. This game is so…busy…like make it a tactical shooter or a diablo 3 3rd person game with guns. It can't be both. It's like when Adam Sandler tries to make us sad in a movie. You can't make us cry when you just make a fart joke

  15. playing with my brother with relatively few issues. Having a ton of fun day 1/2 true it wasnt a buy…but its already so much better. easy buy rn

  16. Man your reviews are funny as HELL lol loved it thanks

  17. Monster Hunter Rise? It’s the best video game I’ve played in my life. But it seems to be getting ignored because it’s not PS/Xbox

  18. I get the "eh" is a touch you've tried to trademark. But you could drop it.. And how do you still even explain yourself every time you give a rundown of your scale without replacing it with sale by now? Renting has been far, far gone. Just say sale.

    I go to you for reviews, but come on.

  19. I'm a fan of looter games and looter shooters especially so this itches my scratch. I like the game, its not perfect but I have fun with it and its something different to play at a time when there ain't much else. I play on series X and for the most part since Saturday's server issues, its worked fine and I have only had a few dashboard crashes. Gamepass for the win

  20. Played this game 47 hours, not including the demo. Super grindy and buggy game. 2 legendary items after finishing the game. Countless crashes. Waste of time. Cover, maps, sprinting, etc. all not up to snuff.

  21. Games Pass = problem solved. I didnt pay anything for mine! My Games pass is free because of MS rewards.

  22. It's such a good game, but overall the bugs and random crashing will ultimately ruin it! Nobody likes to consistently keep redoing missions especially at tier 7 or 8 😒

  23. I absolutely love this game, it's freaking awesome… When it works, needs a patch or two.

  24. ACG is one of the best reviewers out there! But I gotta disagree with a lot of your opinions with this review. To me Outriders is such a breath of fresh air, no microtransactions no live service bullshit. They wanted to give us a complete product and I feel they succeeded with a lot of what they set out to do.

    The classes are so much fun to play, the loot is immediately interesting, the mods that you can mix and match. There's 100s of them and they all do crazy effects, dozens and dozens of legendary weapons and armor, a lengthy story that yeah definitely isn't amazing by any means haha but I'm glad there is a story and that it's a big part of the game.

    15 world tiers to challenge your build, along with over a dozen brand new end game missions after the main quest line. This isnt a Triple A game so I wasn't expecting to be blown away by the graphics, but I think the game looks good especially for a game with a smaller budget than it's main competition. I feel the devs really focused on giving us value for our money instead of trying to nickel and dime players. I can easily give Outriders an 8 outta 10. Once they fix the server issues don't be afraid to give it a try, the combat is the name of the game!

    Great review none the less man even if I don't agree with everything.

  25. Idk about getting this… after athem my turst in these type of games went down the hill. Ill stick to destiny and keep and eye on this.

  26. Looks kinda trash tbh, I’ll download the demo

  27. very detailed review, but I think the length of the video is not matching the value of the game. 🙂

  28. Shame about the bugs, connection errors and always online.

  29. The skill tree is really lazy. However, the heart of the system seems to be the mods.

  30. Really nice review, I'd say you hit the marks on how the game is at this point. Tho I personally think the voice actors are good, the terrible jokes hit well and the story has a really cool theme.
    I hope you'll make a review about the end game too, since that wasn't mentioned :P.

  31. But this isn't a cover based shooter, tho? o.O

  32. I got it on the ps5. I love this game. It’s just fun. Fun is all I need.

  33. Grandmother Mode Activated!! I felt that. lol

  34. Things you're not supposed to ask: How you fit that much beard under a helmet.

    And in general, it looks like a cheap version of Anthem.

  35. If you look at the terrible main character dialog like a Joel Haver skit, the cutscenes suddenly seem WAY more appealing.

  36. I can see them removing the Online only component of the game and making it optional, but it will likely be like Dark Souls and you'll need to select Online/Offline at the Start screen.

  37. Outriders has crashed for me at the login screen on PC both dx11 and dx12 for 4 days straight, got to play like 4 hours since launch….lmaoooo

  38. "Weather you like the video or not, please subscribe and thumbs up" Love that lol

  39. Meh, might pick this up in 2 years when the gold edition comes out for 15$…

  40. Game is badass. I like it. Your review on the game is off.
