Redemption does nothing to move the series forward visually. The World still looks like it always has. The old locations look familiar while the newer ones offer something new to look at that still looks like it belongs. The color palette is kept dark to help push the game's feel while the main character, Haseo, has also seen some redesign to also show his place in the story and growing strength. Unfortunately, reused visuals outnumber the new ones.
Sound is a mix of good and really bad. Background music is good and fits the game world perfectly. Unfortunately, the voice acting hasn't improved and makes the already too long and convoluted story sequences more difficult to sit through.
