  1. This game won’t be published in Germany and that’s no loss at all. The game looks like a game from a few years ago, the single player campaign is finished in 4 hours and if the hero Dick Marcinko really was that kind of inhuman, he doesn’t even deserve a game.
  2. Even if you’re a tremendous fan of Marcinko and love his books, rent this one before you spend your hard-earned cash. The season is too full of top-notch games and excellent DLC for you to spend your cash on this stinker.
  3. The single-player campaign flies away in a couple of hours, without surprises, with a tragicomic script. The "fatalities" and the third person elements seem interesting, but everything else is truly disappointing.
  4. Ridiculously short. [Mar 2010, p.76]
  5. Rogue Warrior is an amazingly bad videogame. Short, ugly and bland, this game is a new example of the uninspired character of the last Rebellion projects.
  6. The really smart thing is to quit out early, uninstall it and play damn near anything else instead. [Mar 2010, p.85]
  7. Though the game really tries for the over the top action of a summer blockbuster, it never comes close to that level of satisfaction. The gunplay feels like a chunky afterthought, and a cover system that very nearly causes more harm than good doesn’t help either.
  8. This dreadfully boring, expletive-filled, extremely short shooter is an absolute rip-off.
  9. To paraphrase a classic Futurama line 'the only thing Rouge Warrior does better than other games is suck'.
  10. Virtual Dick Marcinko said it best: “Dead piece of sh.t!”
  11. 15
    Completely bankrupt of any value whatsoever.

It keeps crashing my pc and even stops other programs working!! I am astounded that any gaming studio could release this.... if you pick it up on console for bargain bin prices its worth it, but only then. Full Review »

    This game is pretty bad. The gameplay is quite generic, the cover system isn't very pleasant to use,... it's crap. However it has a fewThis game is pretty bad. The gameplay is quite generic, the cover system isn't very pleasant to use,... it's crap. However it has a few redeeming factors. For starters, it's quite short, so you'll finish it long before you lose your patience with it. Secondly, it seems like the developers knew how **** this game was so they wrote in the most ridiculous protagonist you can imagine, dropping F-bombs and creative insults like there's no tomorrow. The credits song is a ridiculous "rap" song featuring some of the protagonist's one-liners cut together. Shortly put: this game just doesn't take itself seriously at all.

    If you're gonna pay $50 for this though I'd say don't bother (and I indeed feel sorry for you if you did) but if you can get this for $4 or less I'd say you'll have a few fun hours. I finished it in 2.
