  • Summary: Rampage: Total Destruction offers a fresh take on an arcade classic complete with everyone's favorite monsters: George, Lizzie, and Ralph, along with a variety of new monsters to collect and play. Virtually everything in the environment can be damaged, broken, and utterly destroyed with plenty of hilarious results. Aided by power-ups, the Rampage: Total Destruction monsters are capable of acquiring a number of upgrades throughout the course of a single campaign. Players can annihilate cities all over the world in either one or two player mode in this reinvention of the Midway classic. [Midway] Expand

    Besides the occasional inability to actually grab things as a monster, I can't really find anything detrimental in Rampage: Total Destruction. The true party game, it's that simple dose of pure fun that we really shouldn't move too far away from too often.
  2. Ultimately, it's a short lived blast at best, overshadowed by the much better "War of the Monsters". [Jun 2006, p.84]
  3. Once the novelty of the new graphics wears off, we're stuck with a 20-year old arcade game that I'm not so sure I would label a classic in the first place.
  4. There's a reasonable amount of potential for some multi-player monster fun, but all that impromptu city demolishing action all gets old real quick. [June 2006, p.79]
  5. It's fun for a while, but the lame objectives and lack of power-ups soon make this a chore. It's about time this franchise was buried under some rubble. [May 2006, p.68]

    Sadly there’s no traditional one-on-one mode, so players aren’t given the chance to inflict heaps of damage on one another.
  7. The game’s best feature is its inclusion of the twenty year-old version of Rampage, which is actually smarter, deeper, and just plain better than Total Destruction. That's sad. Flee in terror.

    The crazy thing about this game is that even though you are doing the same exact thing over and over, its always fun. Rampage Total Destruction makes the serious come alive like never before with its detailed graphics and hilarious character animations. Add in a friend and you've got a good couple hours of entertainment. Every time a friend comes over you'll want to whip this game out again. Is it life changing? No. Is it worth 20 bucks? You bet.

    This game is for those who want to get into all the parts in Grand Theft Auto and Simpsons Hit And Run where you can just run off destroying buildings, and it's for those who are just so mad and frustrated and want to tear things up...this game is decent and the graphics are nice. There are tons of more characters and not just 3. But I must admit, this game would not be worth $40 so they put a good price on it. And the fun gets more fun if you use the cheats which you can figure out on www.gamefaqs.com. The game will have you playing for a long time or a short time. It all depends on how you play it. Expand

    There really isn't much to say about Rampage for PS2. The old arcade game was fun but the seriously outdated gameplay simply fails to hold this game togethor. Sure the updated graphics are nice but are actually crap compared to any other game. The game gets begins to get repetative after a few levels. Playing with friend can be fun for a little while but boredom will set in more quickly than you can imagine. This game is cheap remake that does nothing to improve on the original rampage and is just doesn's have anything redeemable about except for the low price tag. If you want a decent monster game I would suggest War of the Monsters. Expand

    Fun for about the first 30 minutes but gets extremely repetitive after that, the original rampages are cool, but also kind of dull. Graphics good, but just not enough complexity or different game play modes. Had potential but felll way short of the mark. Rent do not buy! Expand
