    Rush'N Attack: Ex-Patriot is pretty short and sits on a weird transition point between a side-scroller and an exploration-based adventure game. It takes a little bit of getting used to, since some of the stealth elements are counterproductive (i.e. if you whistle to lure an enemy over to your hiding place, it also alerts them to your presence, thus ensuring your discovery). It's not a bad use of ten bucks, as it gives you a pretty decent weekend's worth of entertainment.

    This is a singular title which is not that similar to the 1985 original. Those who are looking for an HD version of Green Beret might be disappointed, but this is still a good action game with simple gameplay that blends action, adventure and stealth.

    It comes up short. It's split into three uninspired levels of repetitive knife stabbing, sloppy platforming, and switch hitting to drain out toxic sludge. [Mar 2011, p.98]

    Rush'N Attack could have been a nice mix between action, stealth and platforming. But each part of its multifaceted gameplay somehow fails to give us what we expected.

    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.

    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.

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