Rogue Trooper review

How does a game starring a blue-skinned hero and a talking gun end up feeling average?

Pros

  • Weapon variety and gimmicky gadgets
  • Tank shots and sticky grenades
  • Stealth kill-sequence cinemas

Cons

  • Loose
  • clunky controls
  • Half-baked space opera storyline
  • Ultra linear levels

Carving out a place among the glut of third-person shooting games can be a tough task, as the well-intentioned but entirely average Rogue Trooper proves. A combination of straight-forward shooting, stale sci-fi nonsense, and some clever use of gadgets and gear, Rogue Troopermanages to provide a few hours of gaming goodnessdespite somemediocre ingredients.
