RoboCop – Rogue City review
Robocop fans around the world can rejoice when I say this game is everything a robocop fan could ever want. There’s even a return for Peter Weller in his most iconic role ever!
The game follows a very simple story. Robocop is busting a hostage situation, caused by a gang that distributes the drug Nuke. Whilst doing this, he suffers a fall which causes old memories to flood back into his brain, yet only in small fragments. And so he must take down the gang and stop the illegal drugs from being distributed whilst dealing with his malfunctions.
The gameplay has a very Cyberpunk 2077 and Goldeneye feel to it, with it being a first person shooter, and an assortment of different guns you can use, as well as a brutal melee attack. The movement and gunplay feels very slow and rigid, which in most games would be a downside. But seeing as it’s a Robocop game, it works incredibly well. This is paired with a very high durability, even whilst on the higher difficulties which allows you to fully embrace the Robocop all fans want to be.
The accessibility of this game is really good as well. It’s very much a pick up and play game, with simple enough story so you won’t be left confused after playing it again for a while. As well as having a really useful map guidance, even if it doesn’t necessarily tell you exactly what you need to be doing. And finally the difficulty scaling feels incredibly effective, catering to all audiences who will would want to play the game.
The only one fault this game suffers from, is the graphics. Whilst in play the graphics are fine. But the game has such a reliance on well lit cut scenes and that side of the games graphics let the Robocop: Rogue City down. These scenes don’t stand up to modern next gen games, and not even most PS4 games. That said the game is so much fun, and really enjoyable to play – so the cut scene graphics can be easily ignored.
I really enjoy this Robocop: Rogue City and think if you are a fan of the movie franchise or enjoy first person shooters, you will love this game too.

We really love this game. Is it perfect? No. But, it plays so well and it’s really good fun, so the limitations to some of the graphics can be easily ignored. Goldeneye meets Cyberpunk – Highly Recommended!!!
