  • Summary: Fight, sneak, and hack your way through randomly generated cities. It's an anarchy riddled Twin-Stick, Rogue-lite, RPG, Immersive Sim, that goes completely insane.

    Streets of Rogue is crazy fun in its purest form. And 8 bits rogue like that provide almost infinite possibilities to overcome the numerous challenges, or simply unleash the chaos wherever you go. Its humorous tone will made you laugh most of the time.

    Streets of Rogue is an odd yet hugely entertaining outing, one that rewards the time you put into it and never says no to even your most ridiculous ideas. It’s far more than the sum of its inspirations and even if you find permadeath an obstacle, there’s so much to love about this deceptively complex gem

    Streets of Rogue on Xbox One is a totally solid roguelike game that will please fans of the genre and can easily eat up many hours, experimenting and playing around with the humorous world that Matt Dabrowski has created.

    For all the praise I will give Streets of Rogue with respect to its gameplay, I was disappointed with how the story ends. While the journey is a lot of fun, the final level is rather abrupt and anticlimactic. It isn’t a major issue, but a game of this style could really use a bombastic ending sequence to add that extra incentive to complete the game. Overall, though, Streets of Rogue is one of the best rogue-lites I’ve played in ages. It highlights the virtues of the genre very well, and while the challenge dissipates steadily over time, the game remains interesting and varied.

    Streets of Rogue took me by surprise. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but came away with a rewarding experience that promoted experimentation. While some classes shoehorn you into a specific play style, being able to create your own opens up nearly unlimited possibilities and new experiences, all while laughing throughout. If you’re looking for a rogue-lite that allows you to tackle gameplay in a variety of ways, allowing you to be creative and a variety of multiple endings, then Streets of Rogue should be your next play.

    Hayo! It's Koder with Gamer Gals and Guys bringing you another PC review. Round two on the reviewing of the games. Let's get the bread!

    Streets of Rogue is a rogue-lite game that your goal is simple. Kill off the corrupt mayor. How you do so it is up to the player or players. You are given a simple yet short and easy tutorial on how to play the game from the start. Once completing the tutorial, you are sent to home base. From there, you can check out perks and other goodies that you've unlocked in-game. You can also add perks before going into a stage but those cost chicken nuggets. They're obtainable from completing missions. You can also customize your character or a randomly generated one if you don't care about how they look. Each playable/unlockable characters have their own traits and abilities. Both pros and cons. You can be a stealthy ninja and sneak your way around. Or be like me and mostly go gun-ho kill everyone. Yay for a game with no moral bar!

    There's a total of eight stages and three floors per stage. You have to complete random quests within each floor to progress. Each floor is also randomly generated and gets harder each stage. Once you die, you start all over. You keep all the things you've unlocked, but not what the character you had currently. You can unlock new characters, levels, abilities, etc just from playing the game. I greatly appreciate that this game has unlockable characters behind achievements and progression instead of a paywall. It's a breath of fresh air having a game that isn't forcing you to cough up more money for something that should have been achieved from playing the game. The game only saves your current progression after you complete a floor. So you have to complete a floor then quit the game.

    You can play either with friends locally, online, or be like me and go solo. This game provides a quick-start mode for quick and random runs. The home base if you want to check out what you unlock. Online mode for people that are ok with playing with your friends at a distance or random people. The daily mode is interesting. The daily mode gives you random scenarios per day with one of the many characters to choose from. I had a scenario the other day that everyone was rocking rocket launchers and I was a cop. That got chaotic fast and I died frequently. The NPCs can do what the players are capable of based on what they are. I had a vampire attack a random slum right next to me in a crowd. Everyone instantly turned around and started launching rockets. They obliterated me as well as the vampire. Gangs will attack other gang members. Now imagine that with everyone rocking rocket launchers. Most of the time I sat there and watch the world burn and occasionally try not to be in the crossfire.

    Pros: This game is really fun even though it can be very unforgiving. I appreciate that it has unlockables instead of asking us to cough up more money. I have not played it with others but I bet that will be super fun. I can see my friends making it into a drinking game. The graphics overall are simple and not over the top and that is what makes this game on top of the chaos that you can create. The menu is super simple to work with as well.

    Cons: I wish it had a true save file but that’s just a personal complaint. Having your character being perma-dead does suck but it adds a challenge to the game.

    Overall: 8.5/10

    Streets of Rogue is overall a great game to play. I highly recommend this to anyone that loves a good challenge that reminds you of the unforgiving games from back in the day. Hopefully, we’ll see some form of DLC to expand this game. This game is multiplatform and I will personally get my hands on a copy of this on my switch so my friends and I can play together under one roof.

    Streets of Rouge is an insane rouge-lite with addicting game play and a chicken nugget shortage. Featuring randomly generated stages, andStreets of Rouge is an insane rouge-lite with addicting game play and a chicken nugget shortage. Featuring randomly generated stages, and sandbox like play, do what you need to, how you want to. You complete given objectives on the random levels of the city trying to make your way to the Mayor at the top, and kill him. You gather a wild collection of items along the way, from using banana peels, to guns. Almost everything in a stage is able to be destroyed with the right tools, and blasting a wall might be better than beating your way to a safe. From the beginning you have access to game modifiers, that alter game play, and AI from making Everyone Hate You, to Cannibals starting out Neutral. Money is the root of all evil, and can buy nearly anything in the game, even some skills. Make the game even crazier and invite a friend to Co-Op play from Home Base, and cause twice the chaos! You can chose from 24 Characters each with their own stats, and starting gear, most of which do need to be unlock by completing tasks in the game. The game's not exactly easy, and event's can make an area, crazy to play, but this only seems to add to the fun of the game. Streets of Rouge is a good grab if you want some crazy sandbox antics, with a smooth retro feel. Expand
