    When cheesy '80s action flicks dream of being chaotic top-down, twin-stick shooters with motion-comic cutscenes, they dream about being Renegade Ops. [Nov 2011, p.87]

    A fast-paced, non-stop downloadable title, that makes sure to leave everything it has on the table. Fantastic environments, explosions, and weapons make for an experience that is fun to play solo but better with friends. However, the game is around 3-4 hours to complete and the online is the same maps from the single player that can become way too easy.

    The problem with Renegade Ops is that it's all too brief; we're talking a few hours max.

    A brief hit of retro goodness that loses its enchantment all too soon. If you're looking for a demanding blast from the past, Renegade Ops will sort you out for a week or two; just don't expect to be playing it for much longer than that.

Point scoring is a big thing in this game which you can boost by rescuing prisoners taking as little damage as possible and keeping the score multipliers as high and as long as possible which are scored at the end of a mission and a rating given which range from poor to alien. Secondary weapons come in the form of missiles, rockets flamethrower and rail gun you'll find all very effective in the art of destruction as well as the the machine gun you have mounted you can get this upgraded for a bit of extra punch.the only niggles this game has is not many up grades for the guns and upgrades are pretty much the same for all but prioritised differently not really that varied.This game in short is Metal Slug but overhead, to put it simply if you loved Metal Slug than you will love this.
