    Yes, it's maybe just a little on the shallow side, and it has this annoying stash of red power-ups that you have to avoid because they leave you decidedly worse off for a while, oh, and it features boss battles, too. We honestly don't mind too much, though, because of the non-stop rocket action.

    Featuring fully-destructible environments, unlimited ammo, and a bunch of interesting power-ups, Rocket Riot easily overcomes its quirky controls to provide a fun and exciting experience.

    Rocket Riot is a lot of fun but the controls hold it back.

    Rocket Riot HD is a very stylized arena shooter, with fun presentation and tons of crazy power-ups. Unfortunately, the lack of multiplayer mode highlights the repetitive and unoriginal single-player levels.

    Despite a few annoyances, Rocket Riot offers fast paced action with fun destructible envirnments.

    Shame about the loss of multiplayer, but for solo gamers Rocket Riot is a real blast - in bite-sized portions, at least.

    It's cool while it lasts. Unfortunately, the lack of mission variety makes Rocket Riot a bit tedious, while the missing multiplayer mode is a real letdown. Had it come packaged with even local MP, we would've increased the score.
