    Even if Retro City Rampage: DX is a great step forward from the previous installment, it still lacks what it takes to make a great game. Missions can become literally a chore and the parody itself isn't funny at all.

    For all the clever and ‘clever’ references, for all of the time spent on building just that perfect retro feel, they didn’t bother making anything original, or really, memorable.

    This game could not be more appropriately titled. Rampage you say? You're damn right it is and I couldn't be more happy about it. To pictureThis game could not be more appropriately titled. Rampage you say? You're damn right it is and I couldn't be more happy about it. To picture it, imagine a mashup of your favorite 8-bit video games from the 80's with some early 'Grand Theft Auto' thrown in for good measure. Which is totally awesome if you ask me, and makes for one of the best retro gaming experiences of all time; in my opinion, of course.

    Playing through this game, you're sure to pick up on various themes and obvious and also obscure references to old Nintendo classics such as levels taken directly from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (that damn water level, for instance), sounds from the Mega Man series, and the track design from one of the best racing games of all time: Rad Racer, to name a few. The plot is also a mash-up of sorts as it's basically taken directly from 'Back to the Future' with sprinkles of 'Ghostbusters' and other popular 80's movies as well. Can you imagine, both 'Ghostbusters' and 'Back to the Future' in the same game? It doesn't get much better than that, folks.

    Actually, now that I think more about it, this game is just one big barrage of nonstop old-school references to video games and movies from the 80's. But as I said, there's nothing wrong with a little nostalgia. And if you grew up playing games like 'Link to the Past', 'Mario Bros', or any of those fantastic early NES titles, then this game will make you feel like a kid again; in a good way. You know, like having no responsibilities other than to wipe your own butt after using the bathroom, or brushing your teeth before bed, or doing your homework the night before, or...hell, just pick this game up already. You will not be disappointed. And even if you are, what did you expect from a kid?

    Imagine an 8-bit Grand Theft Auto clone and you've got Retro City Rampage pretty much thought out. If you took a GTA protagonist and had themImagine an 8-bit Grand Theft Auto clone and you've got Retro City Rampage pretty much thought out. If you took a GTA protagonist and had them take a Forrest Gump-style tour through 80s videogames and cinema, the result would be exactly what you get here: A lot of thievery, swearing, ultra-violence, explosions and generally just a complete mess. But hey, you get the high score. The odd thing about RCR is that it's generally more fun then any of the games that inspired it, and manages to be much more forgiving in difficulty besides. Accompanying its relentlessly entertaining and reference-laden campaign is a series of bonus levels, including rampages that test just how well you can do what a GTA player does best- tear ♥♥♥♥ up. There's also plenty of unlockables, including a number of extra playable characters, a huge variety of weapons and vehicles, and that chiptuny goodness you expect from one of these retraux titles. If you like virtually ANYTHING from the last, like, 35 years of nerdery, you're likely to find something in Retro City Rampage that makes you smile. I know I did. Expand
