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.

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.

The Red Star review (PS2)

HonestGamers
31 May 2007
  • Excerpt: One part shoot-'em-up, one part beat-'em-up, and all parts "old school," this adrenaline-fueled hybrid is a blitzkrieg embroiled in frenetic gunplay and hard-hitting melee combat.

  • Excerpt: The Red Star was a game about to launch. That is, until its publisher went bankrupt. Acclaim, a company which had a really hard time plugging the holes in its sinking ship, collapsed in the summer of 2004. Selling off everything, the company left The Red Star nearly finished to the dustbin of time.

  • Conclusion: Overall I didn’t have high hopes for this game but I quite liked it. It's fun with two players, and a great mix of genres makes it seem like a fresh idea. Worth a look.
  • Pros: Simple to play, Mix of two genres works well
  • Cons: Could have looked/sounded better, Never heard of the comic
