  • Conclusion: Retro City Rampage allows you to take control of “Player” and experience the best parts of the 8-bit era like it never ended. It is an open-world title which parodies the most memorable video games, TV shows, pop culture and movies, and gives you all the control and diversity that the technology of...

Retro City Rampage

GameTrailers
15 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Retro City Rampage began life as a NES homebrew project with the intent to parody the casual, wanton brutality that defines the open-world game. Now that it’s finally seen release as a downloadable game, after many years in the making, it’s safe to say that it wears its inspiration on it sleeve.

  • Summary: Looking for Retro City? Just strap on your nostalgia goggles.
  • Pros: A plethora of genuine, uncynical references to the best of 80s & 90s gaming, TV, and movies. Comedic timing in dialogue, cutscenes, and gameplay is often spot-on. The game's "sprees" play like wonderfully violent, addictive Game & Watch mini-games. Dense, meticulously detailed world to explore an...
  • Cons: Many of the game's main missions prioritize nostalgia over smart design. The difficulty curve in the game's final acts is skewed high to the point of inevitable frustration. Somewhat clunky controls clash with demands for precision. The game's stronger missions share play time with a host of weak...

  • Summary: Back in 1987, when the NES was at the peak of its reign, the video game world was not yet ready for the open-world urban crime adventure. But today, a quarter century later, Retro City Rampage lets you experience what the genre might have been like if it had been introduced on that now-primitive...

  • Cons: Missions stumble when trying to evoke specific games, Unfair difficulty spikes, Somewhat stiff controls

  • Excerpt: Игровая индустрия уже прошла достаточно длинный путь, чтобы в ней появилось отдельное «ностальгическое» направление. Это не просто инди-игры, в которых архаичная крупнопиксельная графика служит единственным напоминанием об ушедших временах начала эволюционного пути, где герои вроде усатого...

  • Conclusion: Brian Provinciano entwickelte mit „Retro City Rampage“ eine großartige Liebeserklärung an die Spiele, Filme und Serien der 80er- und 90er-Jahre! Das Spiel ist voll mit lustigen Anspielungen und komischen Dialogen und verneigt sich sogar bei der Präsentation vor diesem Zeitalter.
