The much-anticipated FPS, Redfall, has finally hit the virtual shelves, but it appears that the hype may have been unwarranted. The game has struggled during its PC launch, accumulating predominantly negative reviews from players.
Interestingly, the game’s performance isn’t the primary concern. The lacklustre ’empty world’ and subpar AI have left players feeling underwhelmed and frustrated.

One reviewer lamented, “This game is a mess. What should be a great premise is destroyed by bad animation, absolutely no story that makes sense. No drop-in drop-out co-op for a multiplayer open world game? Gunplay feels terrible. Performance is pretty bad. Characters lack any real personality other than checking off boxes for tropes. Stay away, not even sure if time will save this one.”
Not only players but also prominent figures in the gaming community have expressed their dissatisfaction with Redfall. Patrick Dane, editor at Dexerto, criticized the game’s abysmal PC performance and overall lack of intrigue.

Many players have reported clunky controls and unsatisfactory gunplay. In addition, some have noted issues with the game’s visuals, such as textures randomly loading and unloading, resulting in blurry images. One reviewer also pointed out the absence of matchmaking and the limitation of multiplayer access to friends only.
In conclusion, Redfall has not lived up to the expectations of its eager fanbase. As the game fumbles through its disappointing launch, it remains to be seen whether it can recover and deliver the experience players had hoped for.
