So I recently played a bit “RoboCop: Rogue City” and I’ve gotta say, it’s got its ups and downs. Let’s start with the fact that this game is definitely for those who are familiar with the RoboCop universe. If you haven’t watched the movies, the game might be quite confusing and not half as fun. You should somehow also be a fan of RoboCop, because the game is indeed a hefty fan-service. If you’ve never seen a RoboCop movie before, you probably won’t get much out of the game and might not understand it as well.
But let’s first check out the cool stuff this game brings to the table! “RoboCop: Rogue City” is set between the RoboCop 2 and RoboCop 3 movies - that gives the gameplay a nice nostalgic feel. There are plenty of side missions, which is always great for longevity and worth exploring if you want to delve deeper into the world. The graphics are stellar - all thanks to the UnrealEngine 5. For fans of gritty dystopian environments, Old Detroit is flawlessly portrayed with the perfect touch of dirt and cyberpunk aesthetics.
The karma system is a cool feature that adds real weight to your decisions in the game and, of course, the legendary Auto 9 Gun is part of the game! Any RoboCop fan will understand how cool that makes this!
However, not everything is sunshine and rainbows. There are a few graphical glitches which can be quite disturbing, especially when you’re enjoying the slick, immersive world. Some dialogs also seem kinda off or strange. And one of the biggest drawbacks: the gameplay can get repetitive after a while and that can wear thin for some players.
So yeah, that’s my quick review on it. If you’re a hardcore RoboCop fan and know the movies inside out, I’d say give “RoboCop: Rogue City” a shot! It’s got quite a bit to offer and can be a lot of fun.
