    In so many ways, on many levels, Renegade Ops is one of the most refreshingly enthusiastic action games of the year.

    Renegade Ops came out of nowhere. It's one of the most stress-free, funny and downright playable titles of the year.

    It's the kind of game that ends with someone punching a woman in the face. The kind of game where good guys don't look at explosions. The kind of game that results in an absolute, amazing sense of chaos when it can get all 4 players in and, despite a few flaws, it's the kind of game that reminds you that games don't have to be high art, philosophical ideals, branching paths and morality systems.

    It may be a simple old-school arcade twin-stick shooter but the huge maps, secondary objectives, and fun things to discover like being able to collapse buildings by driving through them elevate Renegade Ops to must-play territory.

    An addictive, impressive-looking and fun shooter. [Issue#78, p.102]

    As a rather small and downloadable game, Renegade Ops excels in being a fast-paced, intensive and compelling analogue shooter. Its narrative and story components may not be much, but as a fast in-fast out action game with or without friends, it´s a blast.

    Renegade Ops is adequate for what it attempts to be, but it's more conformist than the title suggests.

    Renegade Ops is a simple, good looking downloadable bundle of fun. Avalanche, the developers of the equally fun Just Cause 2, know that on occasion, video games should be nothing but silly, explosive fun. And that's what Renegade Ops is. It's a top down, dual joystick shooter in which you control a car with guns and you blow **** up. That's about it, and if you can find anything wrong with that, then you shouldn't play it. The only real faults I have with it is it's price, the game is relatively short, with moderately low retail value, but the 5ish hours you will spend with it are a ton of fun. I have also encountered two full, hard freezes right at the end of a level when the game saves, the first time it managed to save the game, but the second time my save was lost and had to replay the level, but that was okay because the game is simply fun.

    If you have points and not much to play, pick this up, it's a bunch of simple video game fun.
