  • Summary: Based on the 3D supernatural action-adventure film, R.I.P.D., you and your partner strap on the holsters of two lawmen assigned to the otherworld to protect and serve the living from an increasingly destructive array of souls who refuse to move peacefully to the other side. Top-notch teamwork and an arsenal of badass weapons are the keys to defeating your enemies and bringing order back to the world. Expand

    While this isn't among the worst movie video game tie-ins, it certainly doesn’t buck the trend of mediocrity. It’s simply… not arresting.

    Poor design choices and a lack of content result in R.I.P.D. the Game fitting the stereotype that movie tie-in video games aren’t worth your time and money. While there’s some cool looking weapons (such as a banana) to unlock as a reward for continuous play, after playing for a few hours nothing really seems worth the trouble.

    R.I.P.D.: The Game is bad.

    A pitiful excuse for a cooperative shooter and a prime example of a disappointing movie tie-in.

    Using an existing - mediocre- title to do a total conversion for adapting a - pretty bad - movie? Well, why not, but don't count on us to play it.

    It saddens me to say that there really isn’t anything redeemable about R.I.P.D.. It’s boring, repetitive, and there really isn’t any circumstance I can think of that would make me recommend it to anyone. I could prolong this depressing review by talking about some of the game’s smaller features, but it would all be for nothing, as they are really just more garbage thrown onto the pile. And I’d much rather rid myself of R.I.P.D. by playing a better game.

    Apathy is also the only emotion I feel towards R.I.P.D. It’s a rushed, lazy, poorly developed game that barely stands up on its own. Somehow it gets even worse with the license, bringing it into a bad licensed game pantheon alongside E.T.

    Can't agree with many people saying there's nothing changed from GodMode. Yes, some animations look the same, and there are only two weapons you can switch between. But the gameplay is different, may be due to another balance and level design. R.I.P.D. has some new features, as abilities and consumables. Betting system also seems to be fun, but it needs more people online to be tested. Overall, i think it's a good game, if you really don't expect too much from a movie-based title, that costs only 10$. Worth its money. Expand

    This game is literaly God mode but retextured. Aside from that and you can bet who will get the most kills, it's God Mode. The maps are meh and just overal a bad game. Basicly another fail to make a good game based off of a movie Expand

    This game sucks. Really! It is a complete and full re-skin of Godmode (Which BTW wasn't very good either) With a few added maps and animations. And for anyone who is gonna argue against me, HOW DO YOU MAKE A COMPLETE GAME FROM SCRATCH IN 3 MONTHS?! Exactly, you don't.

    You should really try to avoid this game at all costs, The people giving it 9, and 10's are obviously not real consumers.

    Even IF you see this discounted, DON'T BUY IT! I'm really sorry telling people not to buy games from an indie-dev, but come on! Don't buy it, this will get the dev more money and encourage other devs to make these simple re-skinned cash-grabs of their own games.

    Final score: 1, If you play this in Co-Op you may find a little bit of enjoyment, but that's IT! AVOID THIS GAME AT ALL COSTS!

    It's truly depressing that games this terrible can get onto Steam, with gameplay about as fun as sounding and a non existant story, god awful level design, terrible enemy design and, as said MANY times an even worse reskin of God Mode. Expand

    Imagine a Horde Mode Game. Now imagine all of the elements from that ground down to their bare minimum and see if you can play it for longer than 10 minutes. R.I.P.D. is a complete cash in, completely relying on sales from unknowing customers. The game is ridiculously similar to God Mode which had similar problems. The only difference is God Mode had an interesting theme and some good level design. R.I.P.D. is just brown.

    An awful title from Old School Games and I hope Atlus thinks again when publishing another one of their games.
