  • 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.

The Red Star review (PS2)

HonestGamers
31 May 2007
  • Excerpt: It's hard to tell what The Red Star actually is. 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.

  • 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
