Summary: Hunter: the Reckoning Redeemer is diablo in the present time setting. The sequel to Hunter: the Reckoning, this game is better in all aspects than it predessesor. The first Hack'n'Slash that is fun just trying to level up, the story picks up directly after the first game which keeps you informed without any side storytelling.
A decent hack and slash, not much replay value in the end

Summary: I'll be honest; I wasn't so enthralled with Hunter: The Reckoning that I immediately had to rush out and buy "Redeemer". However, I do like seeing if things improve in a series and Hunter: The Reckoning was a good enough game to at least pique my interest into wanting to see what they did this time.
Summary: I just recently got the original xbox after I traded in my PS2. I have played all the Hunter games and this one is the best by far. The first Hunter the Reckoning was way too hard and the Wayward one for PS2 wasn't too bad for one player but it got really hard with the 2 player. With Redeemer the thing I liked about it was the fact that you could put it on easy, medium or hard instead of just one setting. You can also level your characters up as well.
Summary: I would love to play this game as I have really enjoyed all the other Hunter games that are out. BUT, I have an older X-box so I can't play it! The game won't even start up! I tried several copies but to no avail... it just won't work. So take heed to this warning: If you purchased your X-box shortly after they came out, don't bother getting this game. Or at least rent it first to see if it will even play.
Summary: My wife and I beat the Hunter: The Reckoning -Wayward on the PS2 a year ago, so we decided the next logical step was to buy Hunter: The Reckoning - Redeemer (can that title get any longer?) for the Xbox. The Hunter series is noteworthy because it's based on a World of Darkness pen-and-paper role-playing game. The World of Darkness was dominated by the first game in the line, vampires. Then werewolves. Then wraiths. Then changelings.
Summary: Since the release of "Hunter: The Reckoning," the games in the series have become steadily more accessible in terms of play balance. "Wayward," released for the Playstation 2 just months before "Redeemer," offered a considerable improvement to the hack-slash-shoot formula of its predecessor - but also failed to offer anything that felt genuinely new to veterans of the series. It felt like a glorified expansion pack to the previous game, simply put.
Summary: I know the game is short - that is mentioned many times. You have to ask yourself one thing before buying it: Did you like Diablo's format? (Do the game, then do it harder with the same character?) If you did, then you'll actually enjoy this game. I will admit the amount of lives is completely ludicrous in one-player (this isn't so bad in 4-player, but it doesn't scale!), but the fact you can import/export your hunter (a major thing not mentioned) is a huge issue.
Summary: This is one of the best games i have ever played. It is sweet you gain levels during the game and get new swords , guns, and edges. Plus get all the cards and unlock cool people like monsters wayward and carpenter. If i didn' t have this game i would buy it!!!!!!
Summary: It was fun while it lasted, but two biggest problems were 1) very short game and 2) too easy. Combine these two factors, and you get a big surprise when two days after buying the game you find yourself fighting the last enemy. After killing him, I thought "that can't be it...?", but then the credits started rolling and I realized I spent fifty bucks on twenty dollars worth of game. Also, the game play, as I mentioned, is too easy.
