    You may have a modicum of fun clambering around and slashing guards, but Rush N' Attack: Ex Patriot is a cheap, tepid re-visitation to a game that wasn't all that memorable to begin with.

    It took Konami 25 years to make a second Rush'N Attack game but this isn't what we were waiting for. The gameplay is very repetitive and the only strenghts of Ex-Patriot are its nice graphics. Definitely not worth your money.

    Rush'N Attack: Ex-Patriot feels very much like a game that was pulled out of the 'canceled projects pile' of 1997 and touched up with a few layers of Bondo. It's outdated, with features from other games haphazardly bolted on, and other concepts that simply don't work. There are a handful of exciting battles and set, but a few thrilling minutes can't make up for four hours of boredom.

    Unresponsive and inaccurate. [Issue#72, p.101]

    Ex-Patriot is a drab, boring example of the dangers of nostalgia-mining down an unstable shaft. It plays badly, it looks dated and its design is uninspired and boring.

    Another unfortunate example of a classic game that has been marred by a shoddy modern redux. [Issue#106, p.124]

    Rush'n Attack: Ex-Patriot is a brilliant example of how not to reboot an old franchise.

    From the very start of the game, it becomes quickly apparent that Rush'N Attack has nowhere to go but down. The visuals are ugly and look dated, it borrows the majority of its concepts from other better games and it simply is no fun to play.

    This is the worst sort of throwback: It neither recalls fond memories of 1985, nor keeps pace with the state of games in 2011. It does not need to exist.

    No charm or retro value whatsoever. Almost no value at all, in fact. Avoid this one like the plague.
