Retro City Rampage

 

Retro City Rampage wastes little time attempting to dictate its manic pace and tone. As the role of Player, a thug on the fast path to super villainy, the game begins with an elaborate restaging of The Dark Knight's iconic bank heist, complete with...

At times Retro City Rampage is every bit as brilliant as many of us hoped it might be. When it successfully marries comedy and short-burst gameplay it’s an absolute blast. Theftropolis is a wonderous amalgam of humor and video game nostalgia, but, no...

Review: Retro City Rampage for PS3 and Vita - GamerTell

 

60 missions in the story mode, tons of pop culture and gaming references, plenty of customization options, incredible visual style, game save is compatible with PS3 and Vita, there are lots of collectables, mini-games inspired by other popular indies...

Zoom options are hit or miss. It can get punishingly difficult. Entering a cheat-code disables the ability to save. There are tons of fetch-quests. Looks and plays better on the Vita than on the PS3

The ride's a little rough at times, but Retro City Rampage's blend of open-world action and 8-bit style is goofy, novel fun.

Old-school graphics infuse a contemporary genre with new life ; Colorful world is fun to explore and to cause trouble in ; Packed with nostalgic 80s references ; Good assortment of enjoyable side activities ; Great visual customization options

Missions stumble when trying to evoke specific games ; Unfair difficulty spikes ; Somewhat stiff controls

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.

But classic video games aren't the only thing on the parody table here. For example, you'll rob a bank that's an obvious reference to Scrooge McDuck's money bin in a scene that plays on the opening bank heist scene from The Dark Knight. And the game...

I don't often admit to giggling in public, but Retro City Rampage had me giddy as a schoolgirl. I think it's safe to say that if the thought of 8-bit nostalgia appeals to you at all, this game will make you weep gigantic pixilated tears of bliss. Of...
