  1. None of this matters. Rogue Agent has it where it counts; in gameplay, innovation and just plain, flat-out devious fun.
  2. While the final cocktail that is Rogue Agent breaks very little new ground, the eye powers and deathtraps are extremely welcome additions to the shooter arsenal.
  3. A disappointingly repetitive and average ride at a time when above-average is a necessity.
  4. An uninteresting story and lackluster gameplay, both online and off, leaves this latest adventure feeling rather flat.
  5. Hardly groungbreaking, but it is a laugh. In an increasingly bleak world ("Killzone"), that's enough for us.
  6. Wearing a no-holds-barred sense of literalism on its sleeve, this mostly mediocre affair fails to bring anything new to the genre or even match its many peers. [Feb 2005, p.104]
  7. The designers didn't love this game, they just threw together poorly understood ideas from other games like "Halo" and "Half-Life" so that the management chimps responsible for the project could be satisfied that it was ripping off popular products.
