  1. Rocketmen Axis of Evil would have been a stellar hit in the 1980s when I was pumping quarters into arcade machines. In 2008 it’s a mediocre title at best.
  2. With juddering graphics, haphazard gameplay, and voice acting that will put you in a mental asylum, this is a download you can definitely skip.
  3. The game itself isn’t much fun, regardless of the number of players. With its plodding, monotonous pace and scattered presentation, Rocketmen doesn’t do enough to separate itself from the seemingly infinite number of other dual joystick shooters available via Xbox Live Arcade or the PlayStation Network.

It has a horrible scrolling mechanism; many times you'll find yourself stuck at the edge of the screen without being able to get to the item or enemy you want until the game decides to adjust itself and let you do that. I'll take Robotron circa 1982 over this one any day. Full Review »
