Road Redemption is an action-orientated racing game heavily inspired by the Sega Genesis classic Road Rash. As you might imagine given its influence, Road Redemption is less about racing and more about beating your opponents into a pulp with the business end of a massive pipe, or just your bare hands and feet if no weapons are available. Naturally, you still need to win the race in order to gain the best loot, but the way you approach each match is completely up to you.

You can get a good idea of what this looks and plays like in-game via the recently posted launch trailer down below. Its not a very long video, so if you're interested in the concept I would recommend you give it a watch:

I haven't played it myself, so take the following with a few grains of salt, but according to the various reviews I've read it would appear that Road Redemption is a pretty damn solid game. Its nothing revolutionary, but if you're a fan of Road Rash chances are high you'll have a blast with Road Redemption as well since its basically a spiritual successor. Whether you consider that worthy of €18, that I'll leave for you to decide.

If you would like to learn more about Road Redemption, or just check out some of the other gameplay previews, you should head over to either Steam or the official website. And finally, allow me to leave you with a couple of latest images:
