Excerpt: There are games out there that just beg you to ask, "What the heck happened?" RTX: Red Rock is one of those games. Though LucasArts has made some spectacular titles as of late (Knights of the Old Republic) and is well known for its stylish adventure games back in the day (Full Throttle, The Dig, Day of the Tentacle) this game is quite possibly one of the worst Lucasarts has ever released, where nothing works the way it should and the only thing that goes through the roof...

Excerpt: A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, Lucasarts made games that weren't based on Star Wars. Yes, as surprising as it may seem, a majority of Lucasarts' early games had nothing to do with Jedi, X-Wings or Stormtroopers (in fact, it wasn't until the early 90's that Lucasarts even looked at the possibility of a Star Wars game). The even more surprising aspect of this phenomenon is that a majority of these early games still rank among the best games ever made.
Excerpt: LucasArts' RTX Red Rock serves as an example of what happens when various aspects of a game are so poorly executed that they ultimately turn the entire experience of playing the game into a frustrating chore. The action elements in this third-person action game are just plain sloppy due in large part to a poor lock-on targeting system and a cumbersome inventory system.
Excerpt: It's good see an original game coming from LucasArts again. I'll be the first to defend Star Wars games, but after a while even that universe can grow stale. Give me originality every time!

Excerpt: Eine gute Story... Der Kampf gegen die Außerirdischen ist scheinbar gewonnen. Die Erde hat nämlich in einem langwierigen Krieg die Aliens vernichtend geschlagen.

Pros: Tolle Story, Schöne Videosequenzen
Cons: Teils komplizierte Steuerung, Viel herumgerenne
