Retro City Rampage

 

A few years ago, Michael Thomsen published an article wondering if Metroid Prime was video gaming's Citizen Kane. It's a baffling notion that was, understandably, mocked by gamers around the world. Honestly, I don't know if Metroid Prime is our Citizen...

Retro City Rampage works as an always funny parody of Grand Theft Auto and classic games. But it's much more than that. There's some devilishly clever content here, including a solid action game with consistently humorous writing. Not every joke lands,...

Some things are better left in the past.

Tons of fun references; driving around the city is enjoyable; visual tweaks add a lot

Ridiculous difficulty spikes; too many failed jokes; points out what's bad and makes you do it anyway

At first, it's all very charming, but with the frustrations that come with difficulty spikes and often clunky controls, it gets old very quick. We don't play games for the same reason we go to museums, and RCR makes that frustratingly clear. Gaming...

Unfortunately, as alluring as the city is, getting around Theftropolis isn't always enjoyable. Player moves sluggishly until he gets a bit of momentum going, and although all the vehicles around you are yours for the taking, many of them are too slow...

A truck are begin to move."

Nostalgia-tripping; Lean, time-traveling soundtrack; Tons of vehicles and weapons; Story missions, Rampage challenges, mini-games; Cheats, skins, screen overlays; Tight controls, arcade fun; $15 for both Vita and PS3 versions

If you don't get the references

All of this is supported by my favorite game soundtrack in years, cementing Retro City Rampage as like, totally radical, dude.

Grand Theft Auto: 1992

Equal parts joyful celebration of gaming and movies in the 1980s and 1990s and a chaotic, ADHD overload, you'll either adore Retro City Rampage or feel as though it's kicking you to death with pointless references to the great and good of yesteryear.
