New This Week: Redout

“Redout” is “Wipeout” or “F-Zero” – depending upon whether your console predilection goes to the Sony or Nintendo side of things – for VR. Although a more accurate comparison might be to the excellent “Radial-G: Racing Revolved,” which has been available for the Oculus Rift since before its consumer launch, as well as the htc Vive. After puttering around with it for an hour or so, I do like the variety in the courses and it is a quality product, but am not yet convinced that it is as good as Radial-G. I will spend some more time hovering over the track over the course of the next few days and we’ll see how my initial impression might be swayed.
