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 this game has.
Summary: Acting as both a love letter to all things 80's and a parody of modern video games, "Retro City Rampage" has a unique sense of charm but I don't feel that it has the gameplay chops to back it up. The 8-bit graphics and constant references to things like Back to the Future or Sonic the hedgehog help sell a sort a sort of retro feeling to the game, at least stylistically.
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). This should've been a free download for smart phones, not a PSN game.
Summary: This would have been amazing about 20 years ago now it's just an irrelevant parody lost in a new generation of games. This game fits better for something like the ipad so you can play it on the go instead of waisting time when you could be playing better games like bioshock or tomb raider.
Summary: I can't believe how amazing this game is. From the trailers it just looked like a mini-game version of GTA almost but it has a crazy as hell campaign full of every possible video game and movie reference/parody I can even think of. It's fun as hell, there are heaps of weapons and customizations and it controls great (to be honest it is best played with a controller for sure), I bought it cheap on a Steam sale and 5 minutes into playing knew I wanted it on my big screen...
Summary: Retro City Rampage on the Vita is the perfect on the go openworld game. Its arcade like fashion and nutty story is easy to jump into. And making the gameworld your own is easy. This all ties in together to make Retro City Rampage stand out in the Vita library.
Summary: Retro City Rampage is a masterpiece. I don't often use this word, but i have to say it: this is a perfect game. Why? Because it's really really funny, an awesome graphic style, an awesome 8-bit soundtrack and it takes about 20 hours to complete everything (includes trophies). Then on Vita it's the greatest version. If you have this console, this is an obligatory purchase!
Summary: My overall experience with this game was an enjoyable one. The gameplay is fun, the references and parodies entertaining, and the retro, 8-bit aspect is more than appealing. However, there is a lot left to be desired with this game. The plot is terrible, and just a way for the writers to get to their next reference as quickly as possible. After earning all the trophies, I couldn't see myself going back to play it again. Also, the difficulty spikes are ridiculous.
Summary: Take one look at Retro City Rampage and you'll probably know if you'll enjoy it or not. Its a retro inspired parody of GTA filled with cheesy jokes and references. It easily has enough charm and silly fun to hold its own though. The main missions are completed easliy enough but the side missions will really test your patience. The city itself has enough to keep you busy for hours at a time, filled to the brim with secrets and unlockables.
