Hunter: The Reckoning—Redeemer – Consumer Guide

Mike Bracken's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Violence

Parents would be well advised to pay attention to Redeemer's M rating. The game features lots of supernatural and occult elements, monsters, and killing. Blood can be turned on and off, but players are still hacking zombies apart with swords or blasting them with guns. This one's probably not a good title for the kiddies.

Fans of the Hunter series will find that this latest entry offers up more of the same in all regards—the same gameplay, the same storyline, the same characters, etc. If you've played one Hunter game, you've essentially played them all. However, the leveling up system for weapons and spells does at least add some replay value to the game.

Casual gamers will want to rent before buying. The game is short and can be finished well within the standard rental period. It's hard to recommend the game as a full-price purchase because of this.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers will find the experience a mixed bag. While some sequences contain subtitles and there's a lot of text dialogue littered throughout the game, there are several story interludes with no subtitles. I'm not sure why this is, but players with impaired hearing will be missing out on some of the game's story.
