  • Summary: Rampage: Total Destruction offers a fresh take on an arcade classic complete with everyone's favorite monsters: George, Lizzie, and Ralph, along with a variety of new monsters to collect and play. Virtually everything in the environment can be damaged, broken, and utterly destroyed with plenty of hilarious results. Aided by power-ups, the Rampage: Total Destruction monsters are capable of acquiring a number of upgrades throughout the course of a single campaign. Players can annihilate cities all over the world in either one or two player mode in this reinvention of the Midway classic. Expand

  1. Midway didn't over-think Rampage TD, rather, they made it look amazing while retaining and improving on the game's simplistic yet addictive gameplay. [May 2006, p.54]
  2. It would be an improvement to allow your monster to tear through the Las Vegas strip, then head for Hoover Dam to cause some real havoc. But taking down cities one block at a time will have to suffice for now.
  3. But while the lighthearted mass destruction is reasonably fun, particularly in multiplayer mode, the game suffers from a lack of technical polish. [Jun 2006, p.87]
  4. The series' simplified gameplay takes a step backwards with Total Destruction, and the overall experience is decidedly mediocre. But sometimes, after a hard day of work, you just want to knock over a skyscraper.
  5. It provides a great old school time, with plenty of levels and things to destroy in them that you can enjoy I short bursts. Any fan of the series will be more than ecstatic with this rendition.
  6. Perhaps you'll see something that I did not, and find an enjoyable game that's average at best.
  7. The game's best feature is its inclusion of the twenty year-old version of Rampage, which is actually smarter, deeper, and just plain better than Total Destruction. That's sad. Flee in terror.

    A fun game with a quirky and embarrassing sense of humor. A great game if you're looking to kill an hour or two with your friends. I rarely found myself spending more than 20 minutes with it by myself, but found that I had a lot of fun playing for an hour with my friends to be stupid while eating people, destroying buildings, and making a 75 foot monster fart. The gameplay was horrendously repetitive yet was saved by it's silly art style and "ironically fun" party game potential. Expand
