    An enjoyable beat-'em-up that does the movie justice. But there's little more than a basic scrolling brawler under all the great ideas. [Nov 2005, p.84]

    • 70 Critic Score
    Not an exceptional racer but enjoyable all the same, and certainly the least juvenile of the current crop of G-riders. [Nov 2006, p.137]

    Intuitive controls make Rogue Trooper easy to pick up, but a 'meh' storyline and dull surroundings make it easy to put down, too. [June 2006, p.88]
