Rogue Galaxy review

Think PS2 RPGs are dead? This immensely addictive space opera will change your mind

Why you can trust GamesRadar+ Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

See, some enemies won't respond to simple hack-and-slash. Some have shields that need to be shattered with a charged attack, or even with a special gun. Others have weak spots that can only be hit while jumping; in fact, the first boss you'll face can only be hit if you shoot it with a gun that projects laser platforms for you to hop around on. Of course, if all else fails you can pick up debris or other monsters and throw it at them, and that's always cool.

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
