Rogue Trooper reviews
« on: 31 March, 2006, 08:09:32 PM »
Thought it'd be nice to ahve a thread for any reviews of Rogue that turn up - first one ive seen was in the new Dreamwatch mag?  One of those kind of things - gets 8 out of 10

Good idea, Watcher.

I'm particularly keen to see what Eurogamer make of it, as they tend to be less forgiving than some print mags, and if they give it a reasonable score it suggests it really will be worth a look for more than the "I'm playing as Rogue!" effect.

Keep an eye out for any info in the new Edge, as well - they're usually firm but fair as well.

seen in singapore electronic gaming.
good heads up for next issue,
along the lines of .

another first person shooter? not a bit of it,computer chip buddies with souls and minds of there own full of wise cracks and abilites.play the squad and be one character at the same time.

looking forward to this one LAH!.
had a screen shot and a cut and paste image of rogue firing at the reveiws section.

this local version of the mag managed to get GUN to number one in the local gaming charts and sold out in many shops.though internationally gun failed to hit the expected sales figures.

I have some Rogue game questions...a little of topic...

1. Do we know the release date (is it April 21st?)
2. Do we know what online play there will be on Xbox LIVE!?
3. Will it play on a Xbox 360 (will there be the 360 'patch' released to allow it to play)?

Cheers,
WoD.

I had a browse of the mag rack in Asda. PSW had a very positive sounding preview. I get the impression it won't be properly reviewed by most mags until next month.

That's a little strange...most mags get the review copies prior to release...wonder if the release date is going to go back, or if the preview code is not so good?

I'm buying it either way, but if it won't play on the 360, then I won't be buying one of those for a few months...which will make the wife very happy.

"the game will feature special cooperative missions for up to four players (split-screen or online), in which you'll plat as Rogue, Gunnar, Bagman, and Helm before the squad ceased to be"

I lifted this from gamespot.com. Ive scoured the net and theres no reviews anywhere. The did say some very positive things about the preview code.

Cant wait for this one!!

From SFX's site "You can read our review of Rogue Trooper in issue 143 of SFX, on sale Wednesday 12 April."

SFX gave it five stars.

IIRC the reviewer said it was a joy to play.

60% according to http://www.gamerankings.com/itemrankings/itemsearch.asp

but that's based on one magazine's (Play  magazine) review so far. If we include the SFX review, it's up to 80% :)
