Mini Review Redout 2 (PS5) - Eye-Meltingly Fast Racer Can Be Finicky to a Fault
Redout 2 is a futuristic racer that demands perfection. It's basically WipEout if WipEout was even more difficult, and had a control scheme that, at times, made you want to punt your DualSense off the nearest wall. This is just about as hardcore as anti-gravity racing games get, and while we can appreciate the challenge — and the joy of...
