  • Summary: The Vanocore Corporation is about to invade the Tyke System's marketplace with a new genetic engineering marvel: the Piglot, a tender little pet destined to replace dogs and cats in every home. But before the Piglots can reach their final destination, the Vanocore cargo ships are forced to make an emergency landing on the hostile planet of Endust. Ruff Trigger, the top bounty hunter for the Boss PI Agency, has just been assigned the delicate task of rescuing the Piglots, as well as the large supply of VPD (Vanocore Power Drink) accompanying them. As Ruff searchers for the lost Piglots he will start to discover this is more than a simple rescue mission...he has stumbled onto a shocking conspiracy to take over the Tyke system. [Natsume] Expand

  1. Sure, it has a few nominal quirks, but when push comes to shove, this game puts on an entertaining show with value that far exceeds its budget pricing, thanks to a sizeable campaign and a fun selection of eight unlockable arcade-style mini-games.
  2. Ruff Trigger's budget price is just about its only saving grace, because any neat mechanic in the game is met on all ends by the boring and sometimes frustrating gameplay.
  3. A mediocre actioner that's probably best ignored. For what it is, though, it's surprisingly good. If you're willing to give him some time and earn him some cool guns, this budget bounty-hunter has some fun to offer.
  4. The graphics are definitely dated, and look more similar to an early PlayStation 2 game, but as it is a value title, one can look past some of these graphical flaws.
  5. More than anything it's just that the characters don't have any pizzazz. They are dull and uninspired.

    The key word here, of course, is "rough."
  7. Unfathomably derivative. [Aug 2006, p.90]
