    Very frustrating game, not fun at all. 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.

    The half-hearted RPG nods, quixotic story treatment and frustrating camera detract from a core of solid gameplay.
  2. Rocketmen mixes cel-shaded graphics with old serialized space adventure to provide a twist to old-school, top-down shooting.
  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.
