Rogue Warrior doesn't live up to expectations and to its long development process. The story might have inspired a title with a more varied and polished gameplay, but this Rebellion game is affected by a scarce duration, which is unacceptable today.
Nice little shooter. The great thing about this game is that it really makes you feel like a badass. It feels like a good action movie and the one man army left to finish the mission setting is great. The addition of Mickey Rourke voicing the main character is great too and the music is good throughout the game. I don't really know what makes this game bad, like some people say. The gameplay is solid and there's nothing else to really complain about either.
Game development has evolved to the point where it's pretty rare that a PS3 or Xbox 360 release is actually anything worse than mediocre, but Rogue Warrior is easily the worst game I've played on either platform for a long, long time. You could call it cheap, exploitative trash, but it's not actually that cheap, and the exploitation elements are probably the best thing it's got going for it. Trash though? Absolutely.
In condemning this game, I can't help but feel like an opportunistic hunter pouncing on the most pathetic zebra in the herd. But Rogue Warrior is a hobbled, wheezing creature stumbling around so far away from its peers that not going for the jugular could be seen as an act of cruelty.
A descent game with hilarious witty dialogue. The gameplay is not as broken as people seem to say and offers a wide source of weaponry and brutal take downs to approach your enemy. The graphics are also not too bad except for the faces. But overall if you LOVE fast paced action games that remind you of the film expendables, get this game.
This game is bad, broken in many parts, and is at the same time amazing. If you like terrible games then you'll love this. The melee kills are often times remarkable for their brutality, and the amount of vulgar language is impressive. The shooting however is not good. Enemies have that early 2000s syndrome where you can shoot them in a leg, they'll react to it for a few seconds, and then they are perfectly fine and running at you again. The single player itself is only like 3 hours long, so it's easy to beat in a day. The game runs at something like 20 frames per second, and has graphics like a game from 2005, so it's not easy to look at. Given the game's development history, i can easily see how it was such a terrible mess. If you want something so-bad-it's-good, then rent this for a few hours worth of pseudo-retro fun. Plus the ending credits theme music is AMAZING!
While I didn't hate this game as much as some of the reviewers did (I think IGN's 1.5 may be a little harsh), it is definitely far from a good game. The main complaint I have with this game is the length. It is possible to beat this game in less than 2 hours (an average play session for some). I played on the hardest difficulty and beat it in 3-4 hours. Some of the gameplay mechanics really detract from the experience as well. The stealth kills can be completely exploited, because you are invincible when performing them. This makes it easy for players to run from enemy to enemy and just use the knife to take them out. The cover system is also very spotty. Sometimes it works decently, and other times you get killed anyway. This can lead to some really frustrating experiences as it is never really clear how you are getting killed. The AI is downright laughable. It is so bad it nearly breaks the game on its own. You can engage in a huge gun battle in one room, walk in to the next room, and see that they apparently did not hear the explosions or gunfire. Footsteps have no effect on enemies either, so you can run right up to an enemy's back and "stealth kill" them. Multiplayer isn't worth mentioning, because there is absolutely nobody playing this game online. The bottom line is that this game doesn't provide a lot of content for your money. With no online multiplayer and a campaign that is 4 hours when it is pushed to the max, there isn't reason to play it at all. Steer clear and save your money.
