Review: Redeemer

Revenge plots are overused in our media. I’m sure off the top of your head, you could come up with about 15-20 films that have a character going on a vengeance streak for the wrongs done against them. You could probably also name a handful of video games, since killing off a family or humiliating a character is an easy way to build up bad guys as “evil.”

Redeemer doesn’t try to break that mold, which is fine for a short bit. This is a game about being brutal, bloody, and difficult and it gets that right for the first third. Soon, though, things go south and the game never really recovers.
