  1. A game like this is exactly what I wanted in the classic remake trend. Sure, it doesn't bring much that's new, but it does expand on all that makes this genre great and, even better, it brings back the memories of great games from years past.

    After fifteen years Sparkster is back in a brand new adventure. The game is a pure platform game with great jetpack possibilities. The game is fun to play and also addictive. Visually the game looks stunning and the audio is fine. If you are looking for a fine platformer on your PlayStation 3, then Rocket Knight is a great purchase!
  3. It may only be a two-hour game, but the difficulty is perfect, and it offers plenty of incentive for completionists.
  4. 74
    Good fun. [Issue#194, p.102]
  5. An inoffensive 2D platformer with some novel ideas - but fairly vapid and overly expensive.
  6. 58
    For all its competence, there's no real hook for anyone who doesn't remember the original Rocket Knight game. It appeals mainly to nostalgia for the way platformers used to be. Although it has a lovely next-gen presentation with the hi-res, 3D graphics engine, this is very much two-or-three-gens-ago gameplay.
  7. The game's major flaw, however, is its brevity. [July 2010, p.105]
