  • Summary: Renegade Ops puts players in a mobile commando unit sent behind enemy lines to defeat Inferno, a madman intent on global domination. Defeat enemies across a range of stunning environments using a wide variety of vehicles, from dispersing electromagnetic shock waves to the deployment of a huge Gatling gun armed to the teeth. Players have the choice to fight alone in single player mode, team up offline with two-player split screen or join the dynamic 4-player online co-op experience. Blast your way through enemy lines by working together, or compete for achievements as you and your friends aim to top the online leader boards. Expand

    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    A bit outdated and a simple shooter game, bringing a few hours of an entertaining, action ride though.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.

    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!

    This game is awesome. Although it was released with some major bugs and glitches, that has all since been ironed out by the developer. Now that I can actually play the game, I am thrilled with it. The controls are awesome, though a control pad is a necessity! The missions have great pacing and are challenging. I have beaten the game once, and look forward to doing it many more times with each of the 5 playable characters. Online co-op is also a blast, although some times it can be difficult finding a game. Overall experience 10/10. Expand

    Some 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

    Renegade ops. A name that explains itself and explains the game at the same time. Chaos, anarchy, weapons of mass destruction, all in the form of cars. As you play it is liberating and anger relieving to blow up tanks and cars, run yourself through buildings, and turn infantry units into roadkill. Renegade Ops offers various way of controlling your car through a game-pad or a keyboard, whatever suits your gaming style. The campaign has an interesting climax to it with a dry sense of humor as you complete primary and secondary objectives. Altogether, a great co op game you can play with your friends. For only $12,99 you get game that's worth $19,99. Expand

    Good old arcade shooter with amazing controls if you have a controller. Its a 9 game but being too short makes it 8. It has amazing visuals and nice coop mode so if you are looking for couch coop and you have controllers for everyone this is your game! Expand

    Great classic game! The graphics are top notch for the art style and the gameplay is unreal. Love blowing stuff up. The upgrade system works well making you choose your play style rather than maxing out a character turning the game easy mode. There's enough challenge to come back to it again and again. Expand

    when set to easy i would expect it to be easy and not start a time to finish the mission which you cant beat way to frustrating to not make it after a 100 try and you cant figure out how to beat that lvl so i give it a 2 the price is right for it nice shooter but it gets boring real quick if you cant beat it on easy lvl the controls are hard enough as it is Expand
