Rocket Riot


Online Mode: Is there anybody out there? A dual-stick shooter in the oft-invoked spirit of Geometry Wars, simple controls and focused levels make the gameplay compelling, but it is its...

Great style ; Plenty of gameplay ; Good pacing ; Local multi-player

Can be tough to find a match ; You may not like the imprecise controls

Rocket Riot Review


Sometimes it's not so easy jumping on Xbox Live Arcade to get the right kind of downloadable game you want. Many of the neo-retro games offer deceptively simple gameplay that never really has any depth, and many of the actual classic ports are fun for...

And that's really what keeps this game going. Rocket Riot is highly original, despite its simplistic design and seemingly trivial action. It takes some practice to move around unpredictably while firing those rockets, and the wacky firefights that...

Rocket Riot - Review


On the surface, Codeglue's Rocket Riot seems like a perfectly competent dual-joystick shooter that oozes with 8-bit charm and humorous design. However, there doesn't seem to be much of a game behind the glossy finish, making Rocket Riot a beautiful,...

With 80, repetitive single-player missions that progressively become more difficult by simply increasing the number of enemies and the amount of damage they do, a similarly infuriating ‘Endurance’ mode that throws massive streams of enemies at the...

Rocket Riot - Xbox Live Arcade


Rockets, rockets everywhere

Making foes "suck it down ; Blowing up the scenery ; Unlocking ninjas and robots

When monotony sets in ; Death by rockets ; Getting reamed by bosses

The frantic pace of the main 80-mission campaign mode is nothing in comparison to the all-out frenzy of multiplayer matches. A.I. adversaries can provide a persistent challenge, but human opponents fire faster and tend to fill the screen with random...

Rocket Riot on Xbox 360


Nub Shooter

Rocket Ride is a great game for the XBLA. The simple, but addictive, gameplay mechanics make this a perfect fit for the downloadable platform. Whether you want to play different types of single player modes, co-op, deathmatch, and keep track of your...

Rocket Riot Review (Xbox 360)


framework, added enemy ships as adversaries and gave the player the opportunity to grab fuel tanks by hovering perilously over the planet surface or moving through narrow passages

The other mode is Endurance, which puts you in a level against an aggressive bunch of enemies. You need to take out a certain number to clear the level, and each successive level requires a higher kill count to move on

Rocket Riot


Enough pew-pew-pews to make your eyes bleed.

As you'd expect, the multiplayer will probably be what keeps this game in your "recently played" list. With 4p local and 8p online and a few unique multiplayer modes, you'll have plenty to chew after your finished shooting through the singleplayer....

Rocket Riot review


In today's gaming world, what is most important to you? Graphics? Audio quality? Generic games with no real imagination and flawed execution? To me, the most important thing in a game is the answer to the question, "Is the game fun?" Did I spend my X...

Rocket Riot is the most addictive game I have played since Peggle. The seemingly countless characters and power-ups make it hard for this game to get old. It is well worth the 800 Microsoft Points, and I would even venture to say it would be worth...

Rocket Riot [Xbox Live Arcade]


Rocket Riot is a fast-paced, side-view action game that uses cel-shaded graphics to spice up an otherwise retro homage to classic 8-bit titles. Players take control of a jetpack-powered hero character, using missiles to blast through 80 fully destructible
