In our evaluation of Outriders in action, we said, “I’m now about six hours past where I left off a month ago, and I still really enjoy his grim combination of gunplay and superpowers. The balanced adjustments made since the demo have made larger encounters a little more challenging to get through solo, though the ever-increasing variety of weapons, forces, and gear allows for many strategic adjustments and experiments to get over these hurdles. “
