  • Conclusion: Redshirt is an incredibly fun and interesting game mired in small problems that prohibit it from becoming a must buy. The social science behind making characters like you and working your way up the food chain is fun and addicting, but the sometimes unwieldy interface and tense while ugly as well as broken away missions are unfortunate spots on an otherwise good game.

  • Conclusion: If you spend time reading all the jokes or the endlessly repeating messages and leave your escape until the last minute Redshirt could last you up to 5 hours. Theoretically there’s replay value with several different ways of winning to try out, but it all gets so repetitive I can’t imagine I’d ever play it again, especially with the abrupt ending (whether you win or lose). It’s also the slightest bit pricey at £14.99/$19.99 for what it is.

IGN

  • Conclusion: Redshirt is a noble, satirical, and generally successful experiment in social simulation. At its best, it presents a gleefully cutthroat philosophy of human interaction, pushing you to be as terrible as possible within a charming cartoonish parody. It doesn't always manage to hold onto that feeling, but Redshirt has enough unique personality to endure.
  • Pros: Joyously cynical relationships, Accessible interface, Science-fiction homage
  • Cons: Little challenge, Buggy

Redshirt Review (PC)

Softpedia
23 November 2013
  • Excerpt: But, then again, I never played something as weird, funny and captivating as Redshirt. Redshirt, as the name implies, draws much of its visual and thematic inspiration from Star Trek, but this is a vision of the far future that would probably make the members of the Federation cringe because it’s about survival, social relationships and inevitable betrayal between friends.
  • Pros: + Solid gameplay, + Impressive social network commentary, + Star Trek theme
  • Cons: - Limited replayability, - Some unclear mechanics

Redshirt Review

GameSpot
21 November 2013
  • Excerpt: In the future, social networking is still a big deal. It's mandatory, in fact. Your account on Spacebook, the proprietary social network of space station Megalodon-9, doesn't just let you share your life; it dictates it. The food you eat, the activities you take part in, the people you befriend, the dates you go on--it's all dictated by buttons on a screen. Everything is a few clicks away. It would all be very sad if it wasn't also quite funny.
  • Pros: Funny sci-fi humor, Clever relationship-based gameplay
  • Cons: Activities become rote over time, Randomization can lead to frustration

  • Summary: Toen ik nog studeerde – wat ook weer niet zo lang geleden is – werkte ik graag in de bibliotheek. Zeker buiten de tentamentijd was dit een rustige omgeving waar ik zo'n 90% van mijn scripties heb geschreven. Maar niet iedereen kwam daar om te studeren. Regelmatig zag ik 'studenten' die de hele dag Facebook op hun laptop open hadden staan of die continu naar de iPhone grepen om Whatsapp bij te werken.
  • Pros: Flauwe sciencefictionhumor, Goede Facebookparodie, Vreemd verslavend
  • Cons: Weinig te doen, Meer een tabletgame

Il social network stellare di Redshirt

  • Conclusion: Ho scaricato il gioco ds Steam tramite un codice fornito da Positech Games. Ho indossato la maglia rossa prima con un umano eternamente depresso e poi con un paio di razze aliene. Ho scoperto che sui Social Network sono un vero imbranato.

  • Excerpt: Att göra bra satir är svårt. Att göra den i spelform är snudd på omöjligt. Ändå får Redshirt det att se så enkelt ut. Här mönstrar du på en rymdstation där majoriteten av alla dina interaktioner går genom stationens sociala nätverk Space Book. Du klättrar sedan genom stationens ranker genom att utnyttja ditt sociala kapital. Ofta på ett sätt som uppmanar dig att spela som en kalkylerande sociopat snarare än en varm människa.

Test : Redshirt

13 November 2013
  • Summary: Si quelqu’un se demandait pourquoi les jeux vidéo se contentent de relater les exploits de héros sans s’arrêter sur la vie des petites mains besogneuses les entourant, il devrait en comprendre la raison avec Redshirt . Contrairement à leurs sanglantes cousines italiennes, les chemises rouges de l’espace n’ont aucune conviction, aucun désir, aucune personnalité.
  • Pros: Deux ou trois répliques marrantes, L’idée de départ séduisante : une parodie au vitriol de Facebook dans l’univers de Star Trek
  • Cons: Interface pénible, De quoi mourir d’ennui avant le moindre évènement, Aussi pauvre techniquement qu’artistiquement, Deux mille codétenus, zéro personnalité, Beaucoup trop cher, Anglais seulement
