  • Excerpt: Remember the good old days when comic book heroes expressed themselves through the use of speech bubbles and actions in large font sizes like ‘Whoosh!’ or ‘Kaboom!’ flashed across the screen? Well them good old days are back in Rocketmen: Axis of Evil.

Rocketmen: Axis of Evil (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
23 March 2008
  • Excerpt: Rocketmen: Axis of Evil seemed like it might actually be a good arena-style shooter. Sadly, the game did not live up to expectations. The game can barely manage to keep within its own genre due to the way the game is played. Jumping into the game, we first get to create our own character. There are a total of three races, both male and female, and three classifications for each race that don’t seem to make much difference no matter which one you choose.

  • Conclusion: After finishing on normal difficulty, there's really no compelling reason to play further. The online experience is inconsistent, buggy, and difficult to enjoy even if you have three friends willing to play. And truth be told, it is just the single-player game all over again. Despite Rocketmen's great visuals and its decent RPG system, the inherent faults of the game prevent it from being recommendable to anybody but the most dedicated of shooter fans.
  • Pros: Satisfying shooting experience, Excellent integration of RPG elements, A breath of fresh air in a standardized genre.
  • Cons: Occasionally unplayable online experience, Bad dialogue, Lack of extras and game modes, Obtuse camera pans create additional obstacles to progress.

Axis of Snoozeville

  • Excerpt: There are many things that the PlayStation Network is still short on right now (namely more meaty experiences like Adventure and RPG games), but twin-stick shooters is most certainly not one of them. Games like vibe of the game where 1950s space ships and laser guns hold the fore between levels of mindless shooting, but as soon as the middle of the first level, things just start to feel incredibly bland.

Rocketmen: Axis of Evil

Everyeye Network
15 May 2008
  • Summary: Rocketman: Axis of Evil non riesce nell’intento di riportare un genere ai grandi fasti di Contra. Nonostante il tentativo di proporre qualcosa di nuovo aggiungendo una piccola componente gdr (la possibilità di migliorare le caratteristiche del proprio alter ego), i problemi a livello di gameplay e la monotonia degli scenari affossano le possibilità che il titolo ha di spiccare.
