  • Summary: Rocked from normality by an explosion that claimed her daughter and husband, ex-Green Beret Nikki Conners exploits her military training and her new role as leading lady in a covert government agency to further her personal quest for vengeance. After receiving two years of grueling instruction, she is unleashed upon Omega 19, a terrorist organization recognized as the most ominous in the world. With a host of engaging missions, Rogue Ops tests your ability as Nikki to survive in any situation as you work with team members and fights enemies throughout intense gameplay! [Kemco] Expand

    The story progression, variety of missions and locations, appropriate alternate costumes and great controls make it easy to buy into this world.
  2. Every time I was about to demolish my television and PS2 in a rock-star room-trashing fit, some neat little gadget or cool sequence came back to keep me hooked. [Nov. 2003, p.149]
  3. 7 / 7 / 7 / 7 - 28 [Vol 794; 5 Mar 2004]
  4. The big turn-off contained within Rogue Ops, however, is the control element, and more specifically the focus of Nikki during play. L1 moves into look mode, where your targeting reticule glows green if an item can be used.
  5. Besides the poor enemy A.I., the paint-by-numbers gameplay (requiring surgically precise cursor movement for actions like jumping or climbing) makes the action feel canned. [Dec 2003, p.195]
  6. The designers do fall victim to simply giving you a gadget just to make it past an obstacle seemingly forgetting about the gadget later on. However the imagination here is pretty good making using these toys kind of fun.
  7. Objects that can be interacted with are circled with an icon, but this only appears if you are looking at exactly the right spot. Indeed, much of Rogue Ops is spent trying to make this cursed cursor appear. It's not a pleasant way to spend an evening. [Feb 2004, p.108]

    This game was really good and I hope they make a sequel because it like ends too soon.

    It's a Frankenstain game. Bad graphics. Bad controls. Zero originality.
