In this highly stylized eight-bit era style game, blast your way through the environment against enemies or multiplayer foes online. Navigate through a completely destructible environment, uncover special power-ups, or even burrow into different areas of the map. The map regenerates, keeping the action fast-paced, but time doesn't heal all wounds. [THQ] Collapse

  1. A really entertaining title, and even more entertaining and funny if you play it together with friends.
  2. Rocket Riot is highly original, despite its simplistic design and seemingly trivial action.

    Rocket Riot is simple arcade fun candy coated with brilliant pixel art.
  4. Terrific character-unlock system. [Oct 2009, p.82]
  5. Rocket Riot is a great little game, one of the best I’ve played on Xbox Live Arcade in quite a while. There’s something about it that almost makes you feel like you’ve played it before, and several elements are reminiscent of other games.
  6. Rocket Riot is a blast. The game’s unique design and style makes it stand out against many of the other titles available on the Xbox LIVE Arcade, and at 800 Microsoft Points, this is yet another title to consider adding to your collection.
  7. In a time when Xbox Live Arcade seems to be lurching towards bigger and slicker titles, Rocket Riot takes you back to the early days of the service, when colours were bright, goals were simple, and the score meant everything.
