Playing as Richard "Demo Dick" Marcinko, you go behind the iron curtain to disrupt a suspected North Korean ballistic missile program. Soon into the mission, you uncover a conspiracy that could turn the tides of the Cold War in the communists' favor. You must then take the mission into your own hands as you enter into the bowels of the USSR to destroy a technology that could change the balance of geopolitical power, leaving a trail of destruction in your wake!

  1. It's not a bad game: it has its moments, it has several gameplay mechanics, and it has its own personality. But, overall, it's just an average game, with nothing we hadn't seen before, and it's extremely short. Not even the multiplayer makes it worthy.
  2. With all its faults, Rogue Warrior could easily be described as one of the worse FPS on the market. Possibly the worst yet. Its short campaign and tedious multiplayer aren’t in fact capable of assuring a fun and exciting experience, and if we consider its awful visuals, everything seems even worse. One word: forgettable.
  3. You have to wonder how something like this makes its way onto shelves as a full-priced product. Though there's some sort of ironic fun to be had by cruising through the short campaign and listening to Mickey Rourke shout obscenities, it's practically impossible to wring $60 of excitement out of this disc.
  4. Rogue Warrior is an amazingly bad videogame. Short, ugly and bland, this game is a new example of the uninspired character of the last Rebellion projects.
  5. When the difficulty settings are covered with references to b..ches and motherf...ers you know something isn’t right. When, in the opening cutscene, Dick tells us that his two colleagues on this trip have saved his life more times than he can count, we should have known things would turn out bad when they both die from a grenade after having a lingering final look into each other’s eyes. But as soon as Dick opened his mouth, we knew.
  6. To paraphrase a classic Futurama line 'the only thing Rouge Warrior does better than other games is suck'.
  7. 10
    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.

No. They were just publishing it trying to help another company with it's idea. Bethesda is too busy crapping out AAA titles to screen what they publish it seems though. Expand

I've played some good FPS games and some bad FPS games. But this game... this one may take the cake for the worst FPS game ever. I'm pretty sure if the real Richard Marcinko (the protagonist of this game) saw this, he would hang his head in shame and disbelief. The story is boring, the graphics are horrid, the controls are awkward for an FPS, and the A.I. is among the worst I've seen. And if that's not enough, the game goes way too overboard with the foul language. Did Marcinko swear this much in real life? Even the startup screen has the nerve to call you a for playing on easy. The only things this game have going for it is Mickey Rourke providing the voice of Marcinko and a few cool stealth kills. Other than that, this game is among the worst FPS games I've ever played. Even Soldier of Fortune: Payback was better than this... and that's not a good game, either. Expand

    Let me start by saying this is proof that Bethesda is far from perfect, as they snatched the Rogue Warrior project from Zombie Studios andLet me start by saying this is proof that Bethesda is far from perfect, as they snatched the Rogue Warrior project from Zombie Studios and handed it over to Rebellion Developments. While there's few early screenshots of gameplay before Bethesda took over, it's apparent that this game was much better in its original phase. Rogue Warrior isn't a stealth game that's built with an action engine, but nor is it an action game built with a stealth game. It fails to be both. Sure, you might admire some of the stealth kills but other than that, it's a poorly designed mess with few creative kills or original plot points. Every ounce of this game is forgettable, and there's no real reason to return to it at all. This game gets controversy on the bad language alone, so you can guess how overrated the rest of this garbage will be.

    If I can't get it into your skull that this is trash, allow me to put it another way: Bethesda said "yes, this WILL be marketable and it WILL be a huge seller!", for that is the role of the publisher. This deserves the flak it gets not because of innexperience but out of laziness. Not recommended in the slightes.
