The Red Star PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: It’s common knowledge that most games in the modern age are easy to get on with, and this is a sharp contrast when compared to previous gaming generations that have now gone by. Sometimes we wonder how we tolerated the 8-bit and 16-bit eras of gaming, as they were both eras that offered some brutally difficult games. If you have pined for the return of these days, then maybe The Red Star will offer up that rare challenge that you have been looking for.

The Red Star – Review

GameCritics.com
22 April 2008
  • Excerpt: The last few months of retail releases have had a number of surprise arrivals for fans of small titles and niche offerings. For example, the kissing RPG Chulip had been lost in limbo for quite some time before suddenly appearing on shelves.

  • Conclusion: A graphically updated mix of Super Probotector and Streets of Rage, it’s hard to fault The Red Star for choosing it’s source material well, and replicating it in an enjoyable ‘highlights’ type package. But it’s also hard to ignore the huge range of updated classic flooding the console download markets for less, and with more replayability due to online leader boards. But for those looking for a quick and fun PS2 game, it’s still worth a try.

The Red Star Review

31 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Let's not start of on the wrong foot here. This scrolling beat-'em-up cum scrolling shoot-'em-up is a great little title. Dated might not quite be the right word, but it certainly is old-fashioned. I don't mean that it's set in 1940's England and filled with quaint and idyllic ways, as it is absolutely a futuristic game. Rather, everything about it reminds of a time long since passed, which on the immature video game timeline, means about five or ten years ago.

Expert Review

PSX Extreme

  • Excerpt: should come with universal entertainment built right in. Take two old-school styles - beat-‘em-up and shooter - and blend them together, thereby giving the gamer a unique experience, one that's nostalgic and unique at the same time. It seems like a darn good idea, despite the fact one shouldn't be expecting amazing visuals in this new age of flashy graphics and amazing next-gen sound quality.
