  • Summary: Rogue Warrior is a character-driven, first-person-shooter, featuring Richard "Demo Dick" Marcinko's explosive personality in an action-packed single player campaign, and intense multiplayer combat. Playing as Richard "Demo Dick" Marcinko, you go behind the iron curtain to disrupt a suspected North Korean ballistic missile program. Soon into the mission, you uncover a conspiracy that could turn the tides of the Cold War in the communists' favor. You must then take the mission into your own hands as you enter into the bowels of the USSR to destroy a technology that could change the balance of geopolitical power, leaving a trail of destruction in your wake!

  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. 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.
  5. The really smart thing is to quit out early, uninstall it and play damn near anything else instead. [Mar 2010, p.85]
  6. This dreadfully boring, expletive-filled, extremely short shooter is an absolute rip-off.
  7. 15
    Completely bankrupt of any value whatsoever.

    A great game. Lots of action right from the start. Very good graphics and game play. The only thing I didn't like was the length of the game. It was over too quick, just as you're really getting into it. Expand

    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 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.

    Very nice graphics. Thats it. The game itself is painfully boring with unnatural, robotic movements, clumbsy AI and very bad dialog. An attempt to make the character sound like Clint Eastwood gone wrong. Runs very well and smoothly with no major bugs that i noted. Just the gameplay is horrendous. Definitley NOT worth any purchase abouve 3.99. Expand

    one of the worst games i have played. it tries hard to be funny and fails at the same time. if it was an indie game and had random glitches than i understand. but its by a big company so more was expected. dont bother getting it, there are better games than this and the 'one liners' get boring quickly.

    Can't even begin to explain how bad this game is...
    But your review must be at least 150 characters long.
    So, in an attempt to fill up enough
    space I'll give you a sample of what this game has to offer. Expand

    Could quite possibly be the worst video game of all time. Where some games fail to accomplish certain things, this game fails across the board on everything. Graphics, Game Play, Story, Voice Acting.. you name it and this game does it worse then any other game ever made. Shocking that Bethesda would allow their name on this title. Expand
