Playing as Richard "Demo Dick" Marcinko, you go behind the iron curtain to disrupt a suspected North Korean ballistic missile program. Soon into the mission, you uncover a conspiracy that could turn the tides of the Cold War in the communists' favor. You must then take the mission into your own hands as you enter into the bowels of the USSR to destroy a technology that could change the balance of geopolitical power, leaving a trail of destruction in your wake!

  1. Rogue Warrior was a lot of fun even though it's got a lot of miscellaneous problems and shortcomings.
  2. You have to wonder how something like this makes its way onto shelves as a full-priced product. Though there's some sort of ironic fun to be had by cruising through the short campaign and listening to Mickey Rourke shout obscenities, it's practically impossible to wring $60 of excitement out of this disc.
  3. With lackluster multiplayer offerings and one of the shortest singleplayer campaigns in recent memory, Rogue Warrior is a smudge on Bethesda’s otherwise stellar record.
  4. Total f*cking garbage, as the right honourable Dick would (probably) say. [Feb 2010, p.93]
  5. To paraphrase a classic Futurama line 'the only thing Rouge Warrior does better than other games is suck'.
  6. Should you even think about renting it for a laugh? To quote Dick Marcinko: "F*ck no." [Feb 2010, p.107]
  7. One of the worst games ever made. It's buggy, boring, and broken. [Issue#188, p.80]

    How did the developers get away with this. Honestly, the worst game of the year possibly. Personally, as a fan of the genre, I actually foundHow did the developers get away with this. Honestly, the worst game of the year possibly. Personally, as a fan of the genre, I actually found some redeeming qualities in this game. The single player is fun if your only interest is killing nonsensical enemies for trophies. As a quick Platinum this game is recommended. Bear in mind you'll also need three or four willing helpers for the online trophies since NOBODY goes on the online. Aside from mindlessly easy trophies this game is good for nothing. The graphics aren't a next gen standard and at best it reminds me of one of the 2005 Xbox 360 games, or a late PS2 game. Absolutely no innovation in this game at all, and although it's based on the autobiography of 'Demo Dick', they seem to suck all emotion and character development out of the story with horrible cutscenes and terrible timing and script writing. If your a fan of a sadistic level of vulgarity or want an easy platinum then possibly rent it. If you see it for below 99p anywhere, your purchase will be justified. Expand

It's a pretty standard cover-shooter controls-wise, but everything else is terrible. The headbob is ridiculous, field of view is zero and the game is so dark it's unplayable. Maybe they've done that to disguise the shockingly bad graphics. Either way, this is amongst the worst games you can buy today. But trust me, there are definitely worse games out there, but not many.

It's HORRIBLE, it almost sickens me to play it. Graphics are of PS2 or even PSX, AI are mentally retarded beyond comparison, and by the off chance you find someone willing to play this game online, it lags like a MO-FO!!! Gamers of the owrld, save your money, this game is just plain awful. Expand
