  1. A mindless romp that is probably worth the ten dollar price of admission. If you're expecting a title that will provide you with lasting appeal, then you will be sorely disappointed.
  2. While Rocketmen: Axis of Evil doesn’t give off the best first impression, those that take the plunge and buy the game will find a good game that worships the old-school shooters a bit too much at times.
  3. Rocketmen mixes cel-shaded graphics with old serialized space adventure to provide a twist to old-school, top-down shooting.

    The half-hearted RPG nods, quixotic story treatment and frustrating camera detract from a core of solid gameplay.

    While it represents better value than many of the titles it rubs shoulders with in the PlayStation Store, it's too annoying to recommend to anyone without a forgiving, patient and, most importantly, mindlessly trigger-happy disposition. [Issue#165, p.93]
  6. Rocktmen could be thrilling, especially considering the genre isn't exactly prolific, and the four player co-op mode is appealing, but there are many issues.

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 »
