    The co-op is a nice topping on a delicious slice of retro action – but you might still feel hungry afterwards.

    Say explosions. Say big guns. Say over the top kick-ass action. Say Renegade Ops. The top-down vehicle-based shooter puts a smile on your face if you grew up watching the action films from the 1980s. Havoc, destruction and mayhem – renegade operations have never been this entertaining before. [Feb 2012]

    Substantial portion of this fast paced action comes with great technical performance and offers an enjoyable 4-man cooperative mode. Main campaign would deserve longer duration though. [Christmas 2011]

    Renegade Ops doesn't care much about story or tactics, but it's a good over-the-top and simple action game with a great presentation. And it's not expensive either.

    A bit outdated and a simple shooter game, bringing a few hours of an entertaining, action ride though. Still, there is a need for this type of game!

    Glitches and control scheme issues aside, I had a tremendous amount of fun playing through Renegade Ops. Variety of vehicles and playstyles, tons of cool powers to upgrade, and the online features make it a solid offering for PC gamers who are fans of twin-stick arcade shooters -- especially if you like some '80s action-flick machismo thrown in for good measure.

    Renegade Ops is a short brain free arcade game with some flaws and a repetitive action. It's like a Michael Bay movie.

    Some potential game-breaking tech issues aside (USB headset users beware) this is a cheeky little masterpiece. To call it old school or retroSome potential game-breaking tech issues aside (USB headset users beware) this is a cheeky little masterpiece. To call it old school or retro I think does it something of disservice, it's actually more original than that. Renegade Ops takes the old classics, then takes them to a modern level with co-op, persistent characters and tremendous graphics. The camera angle is familiar maybe, and the style of zooming round a large map taking care of different objectives is very Desert Strike (if you can remember that far back) but it's much more intense than any of the old Strike series, reminiscent of maybe an Ikari Warriors or Mercs style shooter. Of course it's a simple as a two piece jigsaw puzzle, get car, blow stuff up, but it's challenging and immense fun with it. It's a great example of a really fun game based on a really simple idea that is executed with care and attention to detail. Plus it's cheap like the budgie. I'm not giving it a ten because I think it's the best thing I ever played, but because I can't recommend it more highly. It's definitely worth a go. Expand

    only played half our of Gatling Gears. Because i found Renegade Ops, cooler action and happenings with athmosphere!. This game is A MA ZINGonly played half our of Gatling Gears. Because i found Renegade Ops, cooler action and happenings with athmosphere!. This game is A MA ZING Range Rover. Check. Mounted .50 cal machine gun. Check. Even bigger gun ready to spring out of the boot. Check. Driver's name is Gunnar. Check. Why hello there "Expendables, the game." how are you today? No, I'm not confusing the games here, this is the game that the Expendables license should have been slapped on, it has everything you could possibly want. Big over the top villains, a thoroughly ludicrous story, a main protagonist so masculine that you will feel testosterone seep out of the monitor, and a crew who either should be skydiving, in jail, or both.

    The game runs incredibly smoothly, even when there's a lot going on, and there's enough graphical whizzbangery combined with the over the top explosions (yes, everything blows up, and blows up spectacularly) that you'll feel like you just took a seat in a movie theater to be greeted by Sylvester Stalone and Jason Statham fistbumping. Athmospehre and feeling of great gameful action

    really a fun title, reminds me on a mix of command&conquer and the old playstation one game vigilante 8 :D

    the graphics and animations are pretty nice to look at, the sounds are good too.
    the music is good, but i turned it off to hear the motor sounds better.

    in my eyes its, together with payday:the heist, the most underrated game 2011.
    you can play alone or in coop with friends.

    its worth the investment!

The story isn't a great thing, it's just listening to a bossy boss telling you to go here or there, kill that, rescue people. The main villain adds some drama though

    The controls are easy to learn (should take a look at the options first and activate tank steering), and even though all the drivers look the same, they have unique powers (and different skill trees).
    I generally play solo, and I enjoyed this one. Playing with friends is also nice, so you have nothing to worry

    Overall, I enjoyed the game. The story doesn't matter, it's a straight arcade shooter, just to have fun destroying stuff. The only problem is that the game seems a bit overpriced for what it offers, that's for both the game and the dlcs.
    So if this goes on sale, I recommend buying

It is best played with 3 or more friends and although the game suggests that you use an Xbox controller, skilled keyboard- and mouse-users should be just fine. The reason the game suggests an Xbox controller is because the developers decided, probably while dreaming off about marrying his Xbox, to improperly implement vehicle steering with the keyboard. The helicopter, that you get to fly from time to time, works in the fashion you're used to (A for left, D for right, W for forward and S for reverse) but the car steers in a very odd manner which causes you to constantly have to rethink the controls. The game would have easily scored an 8 or a 9 if it hadn't been for this completely retarded design decision. It's also the games only flaw, other than that it's great fun leveling your character, blowing stuff up and bumping your friends off the road and into a ravine and if the game is too easy for you on "regular" you'll be pleasantly surprised with the "hardcore" difficulty. An absolute recommendation for any one who always thought Micro Machines would be a lot better if they came with Micro Guns. Expand
