    Retro City Rampage is not really a good game. It is nice and entertaining, but also very shallow. But it is an darn good compilation of reminders what was cool and hip in the 80s and 90, it is a declaration of love to the era of big pixels and plastic pop.

    Retro City Rampage has all the charm, scattershot wit and entertainment value of a drunk, gabbling child. It's shallow, mindless and simple - that's the point.

    Retro City Rampage is far from perfect, but sure is brutally honest.

    As a gleeful tribute to gaming and pop-culture past, though, Retro City Rampage is definitely recommended. It may not rival the series it most closely follows, but it still offers a unique and gorgeously presented experience.

Its a retro inspired parody of GTA filled with cheesy jokes and references. It easily has enough charm and silly fun to hold its own though. The main missions are completed easliy enough but the side missions will really test your patience. The city itself has enough to keep you busy for hours at a time, filled to the brim with secrets and unlockables. From driving Kitt from Knight Rider to dressing up as parody superhero "Biff-man" to the fun of discovering playable versions of other indie classics (including an actual 3D Super Meat Boy), you'll be kept busy for a long time. If your into indie games or just a fan of having a silly enjoyable time, you'll love Retro City Rampage. Full Review »

A throw back to the days of original GTA mixed in with classic nostalgia from days gone by. Don't let this arcade gem slip by, well worth a play through on any system. Full Review »

    I can't believe how amazing this game is. From the trailers it just looked like a mini-game version of GTA almost but it has a crazy as hellI can't believe how amazing this game is. From the trailers it just looked like a mini-game version of GTA almost but it has a crazy as hell campaign full of every possible video game and movie reference/parody I can even think of. It's fun as hell, there are heaps of weapons and customizations and it controls great (to be honest it is best played with a controller for sure), I bought it cheap on a Steam sale and 5 minutes into playing knew I wanted it on my big screen for the full retro ride. It's just so damn awesome that I hadn't written a user review on metacritic for about 2 years until now, I signed in just to write this one. Please get it, support the developers they've done an absolutely amazing job! Full Review »
