Thank you for your cooperation Teyon, in delivering an awesome game. RoboCop: Rogue City is basically as good as it gets when it comes to licensed games. The bar for licensed games is normally set low, particularly by stuff like the recent King Kong and Lord of the Rings games, but RoboCop effortlessly shoots towards the stars like an OCP spacecraft. It's a shooter that delivers great, mindless fun, but, much like the first movie itself, has tons of hidden depth. In the immortal words of Bixby Snyder, "I'd buy that for a dollar"! And you should too!
RoboCop: Rogue City is easily the best RoboCop game to date. That in itself isn’t exactly a high bar, but regardless of the quality of previous RoboCop games, the developers got this one right. They put a lot of time in studying the source material, cramming the game with references to the films. The story is interesting enough, but does suffer from uneven pacing. Spending time at the precinct between missions to attend to more mundane things can break the momentum, but does help make the character feel like an actual police officer and not just a rampaging killbot. The mix of exploration, conversation, detective work and shoot outs help make the game feel more cinematic which is appropriate since it’s essentially written as a sequel to RoboCop 2. In spite of the criticisms mentioned in the review, RoboCop: Rogue City is an enjoyable experience from beginning to end. As a continuation of RoboCop’s story Rogue City works well and is worthy of the time of any RoboCop fan.
In a sterile world full of games like call of duty with micro transactions, it’s refreshing to see game studios develop such rich games, with a great story and great gameplay. Perhaps I’m biased being an 80s child, but this game for me has been one of the best still playing as an adult.
Wasn't expecting much from it, the last RoboCop game I played was the '03 game. And that one was terrible so yeah. But in all honesty, this game is freaking awesome! Graphics are Meh, but the love for the franchise makes up for that in spades!
RoboCop: Rogue City is a blast to play for long-time fans of the franchise and goes above and beyond to respect its source material. It won't win any awards for being ground-breaking, but Peter Weller offering his voice to a story that's arguably the best use of the RoboCop name since the original film makes this a worthwhile treat for those who want to be transported back to their childhood.
RoboCop: Rogue City surprises with beautiful and varied level design, fun shooter gameplay and nice detective quests. However, this is offset by wooden character animations, performance slumps in cutscenes and sound problems. The story stays too close to the movies and fails to add a memorable chapter to the RoboCop universe.
It's a well-worn cliche at this point, but if you're a fan of RoboCop, then you'll find a lot to love in Rogue City. It's chock full of Easter eggs and manages to capture the look and feel of the first two RoboCop movies with excellent attention to detail, even getting Peter Weller to reprise his role as the eponymous hero. More than anything, it does a tremendous job of making you feel like RoboCop in its best moments. Combat is shallow because of this devotion to authenticity, but it excels when you're able to fully personify the relentless killing machine. It missteps when moving away from this, resulting in some dull firefights, yet these failings are mitigated somewhat by its embrace of a well-rounded RoboCop, regularly breaking away from the action for more nuanced moments of crime fighting. Rogue City might not be for everyone, but at least it's not RoboCop 3.
Robocop: Rogue City certainly looks the part, but beware of this gleaming, shiny, polished graphical exterior; it hides mechanical insides that are rust-riddled and broken. Dead or alive, this game definitely shouldn’t be coming with you.
''Pro'' reviewers did dirty to this great game. Robocop Rogue City surpassed all my expecrtations.
Graphically is one of best looking games which is quite achievement for a budget game. Controls and action are top notch as well. Dialogue is surprisingly good as well.
Recommended for all fans.
For it's current price, I can't recommend it. The game will take about 12 hours and nearly half of that is spent out of combat walking around the same small areas, and talking to people about rather boring un-engaging topics. You revisit the same neighbourhood area 8 or 9 times in the play through, so it becomes old rather fast with the lack of diversity. If this had come out 15-20 years ago, it would be classed as a Masterpiece, but its 2023, and the game lacks in all areas except one. The combat.
The combat is fun to a point, but its not enough to carry the rest of the lacklustre game. The lack of innovation in the combat shows a lazy attempt to push out a game that lacks for what is being asked to buy it for. They could have even tried things like Robocops controls get messed up and everything is reversed for a mission ie up is down, left is right etc, or his aim is off for a mission, just to mix it up a bit.
The visuals are nothing special, it does suffer frame-rate drops. Wait till its at least half price. When you compare this to other offerings this year like BG3, which is the same price and offers innovation and 15 times more game time, the asking price for this is a joke.
Good graphics, mediocre story and voice acting, Extremely boring gameplay. Move, kill everyone, move, kill everyone, move, open door, kill everyone, move pull lever, kill everyone. If you remove the nostalgia glasses it has nothing to offer.
