Rocket Knight

Family Friendly Gaming
27 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I remember back during the Nintendo 64, and some journalists suggesting that 2D games were dead. Well all these years later, and 2D games like Rocket Knight are not only released, but they thrive. Konami has revived this franchise, and I for one am happy to see it. Sparkster is from an era where everyone was trying to do a fun twist on some animal, and make them a mascot. Sega broke through with a hedgehog, so why not try an opossum? That is exactly what Konami did.

Rocket Knight Review

PlayDevil
7 July 2010
  • Summary: " Rocket Knight " is a decent little game. It looks and plays great, but it’s pretty pricey and really very short. It’s a great game that I’d recommend you play, but at the same time I’d probably wait until the game goes on sale for it to be a truly worthwhile purchase- at 800 points or less, you’d be silly not to pick up this charismatic platformer.

Rocket Knight Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
2 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Where is the anthropomorphised hero these days? Skinned and draped round the latest generic space marine no doubt; the muscle head grunting and flexing, cursing at girls while blowing large chunks out of muddy environments with equally brown enemies. Don’t get me wrong, I love shooting things but the current palette trend is a trifle stale.

Thunderbolt Games
28 June 2010
  • Excerpt: Reviving retro franchises can be a tricky business. Change too little and, without the benefit of rose-tinted glasses, a game can feel tired and old-fashioned. Change too much and the whole point of a remake is lost amongst a swath of unwelcome ideas. Rocket Knight is unique in that it falls into both traps simultaneously; by changing many of the more likeable aspects of the original cult hit, and emphasising some of the less likeable ones, Climax Studios manages to...

The Review Busters
18 June 2010
  • Conclusion: This game is a blast while it lasts. If you are like me and have been dying for a new Rocket Knight game, you will be very satisfied. If you enjoy games like NSMBW and Sonic 4, you will really enjoy Rocket Knight. The major thing against rocket knight is the cost. For what your paying (15 bucks) this game is pretty short and the casual player might feel like they paid a bit too much for it.

29 May 2010
  • Excerpt: It has been almost twenty years since the original Rocket Knight game, a classic Sega Genesis platformer that never saw a sequel. That is until now. Konami has decided to bring back their franchise with a spruced up 3D graphics engine that maintains the side-scrolling mechanics. But for $15 is Rocket Knight worth your time and money?

Talking About Games
25 May 2010
  • Excerpt: During the early ’90s, gamers of the 16-bit era were subject to an onslaught of anthropomorphic mascots in which game companies wanted to cash in on Sonic the Hedgehog’s success. This era was the one where all the animal mascots had that ‘tude quality, where they did their best to fit in with the Genesis [...
