  • Summary: With it's 8-bit graphics and constant retro-throwbacks, this is sure to please the right crowd who are looking for something to bring on nostalgia. Those with more modern tastes should probably look elsewhere, because nostalgia is the only thing that will keep gamers from overlooking the many flaws...

  • Summary: Fun at first but it gets boring after while and the game is just too long. The 8 bit graphics get tiresome after a while to. If you can get this for free it's worth your while.

  • Summary: This is a classic example of three things: retro graphics (8 bit) suck and indie games are grossly overrated and over priced. I did not like anything about this game. I gave it a 5 cause in the beginning I enjoyed it but then it got highly aggravating (much like the classic GTA games).

  • Summary: This game does one thing outstanding. It pays homage to the 1980's in huge abundance and very completely. However, I really feel this game falls short in many other aspects.

  • Summary: Retro City Rampage is a must-own game for any gamer who grew up in the 80's. For everyone else I would suggest trying before buying. The initial charm of the overworld graphics fades pretty quickly, but it never gets in the way.

  • Summary: This game is truly awful. Think all the frustration of old-school GTA with none of the refinement or fun. Worst yet are the 'hilarious' jokes. You can't just say, "Remember Duck Hunt?" That's not parody. That's not a satire. It's not a joke and it's not funny.
