Der Rogue Trooper hat mich mit seinen vielen Facetten zunächst klasse unterhalten, denn er spielt auf der ganzen Klaviatur der Action ein explosives Solo zwischen Run&Gun und Stealth&Kill. Zwar ist die Freiheit im Endeffekt immer nur situationsbezogen, aber die Illusion offener Möglichkeiten hält lange an. Leider hat man die herrliche Party-Interaktion mit Waffe, Helm und Rucksack nicht konsequent genug verfolgt. Was am Anfang noch witzig, kreativ und abgedreht ist, verläuft sich später in streng reglementierten Kommentaren, die etwas an Coolness verlieren. Die wunderbare Leichtigkeit der Sidekicks wird irgendwann von der schweren Rachegeschichte erdrückt. Die ist zwar auch unterhaltsam, aber ich habe markantere Antagonisten vermisst, die sich mir z.B. in einem Bosskampf in den Weg stellen. Trotzdem: Unterm Strich ein richtig gutes, höchst abwechslungsreiches Abenteuer, das jeden Cent wert ist!

The Norts hate the color blue and even more so when they are staring down the barrel of a weapon held by those abominations known as the Genetic Infantry. As the propaganda begins to fill the airwaves with a powerful campaign to destroy what is left of the cloned, blue-skinned soldiers, the war for Nu Earth has just begun. Of course, the Norts will have to deal with a hero who is just too tough to kill. This is the epic struggle gamers will encounter in Rogue Trooper for the PlayStation 2 and this summer’s most surprisingly fun action game.

Action games tend to get stale rather quickly. Especially now, when third-person explode-a-thons rule the marketplace. Developers need to come up with ways to set them apart. That, or go the traditional route and just do it better than anyone else does. Look at God of War. It didn't really do anything new, but it offered a wild degree of polish and refinement.
Rogue Trooper is one of the late-generation games that could have been something several years ago, but falls flat today. Case in point, the graphics are hardly up to the standards that PS2 set in its prime. Games like God of War and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater put even most Xbox 360 games to shame. From the looks of its textures and waveless water, you would think that Rogue Trooper was a game released in 2001, alongside Medal of Honor.

Ever wonder what the Blue Man Group would be like if they were equipped with talking machine guns, placed on a poisonous future version of Earth, and given a whole army worth of guys in giant bio-suits to shoot? If you find yourself fitting into this category, then Eidos has just the game for you. Rogue Trooper, their new third-person shooter, puts you in almost that exact scenario, and surprisingly enough, the results are pretty fun. As a single-player game, Rogue Trooper really is a blast to play through. The missions are all exciting and varied, the graphics and sound are both solid, and the gameplay is fun and innovative. It's just too bad there's not more of it.

Rogue Trooper is probably the hardest game sell in recent memory. With graphic and plotting from the cheesiest depths of 80s British comic books, not to mention a half-naked and buff blue main character…well, it’s not the first thing any gamer would look at. But thankfully, Gerry Finley-Day and Dave Gibbons’ Genetic Infantryman has a solid bit of gameplay behind his new venture into the gaming arena.

Rogue Trooper is a third-person shooter based on the 2000AD comic of the same name. In case you don't follow British comic books, Rogue Trooper is a gritty sci-fi strip about a genetically engineered soldier named Rogue who fights in the perpetual war that wages on the planet of Nu Earth. It's an interesting premise, and the story translates well into a video game, allowing for some unique gameplay mechanics. Unfortunately, the standout features in the game are negated by a stunted single-player campaign, limited multiplayer, and a handful of annoying design flaws.

Finalement plus convenu qu'on pourrait le croire, Rogue Trooper est un petit Third Person Shooter sympathique mais trop facile et trop court pour qu'on s'y attarde vraiment. Un titre que l'on réservera aux amateurs en manque à condition de ne pas y mettre trop de précieux brouzoufs.

"Rogue Trooper" se esforça para trazer variedade num gênero que hoje parece ter pouco espaço para inovar. Mas, no final das contas, mesmo com tanta liberdade de ação, as situações que o jogador enfrenta são bastante limitadas. Somando prós e contras, o game é daqueles que podem divertir num primeiro momento, mas esgotadas as novidades, o interesse começa a diminuir rapidamente. Em alguns momentos brilha com tiroteios intensos e situações inteligentes, mas é pouco para sustentar as cerca de dez horas de campanha.

My time with Rogue Trooper was cut short thanks to the miniscule length and paltry multiplayer modes. The game wanted to be so much more than it was in the end. The multiple personalities inherent in Rogue's gear and the implementation of their abilities brought an air of cool to an otherwise generic game. Unfortunately the entire concept feels like a gimmick in the end, and it's one that tones down the difficulty as well. Still, I appreciate where the developers were going with this and quite honestly Rogue Trooper is a great companion for fans of the comic. I'm just not sure the gameplay, challenge, and length are enough to warrant a purchase in the end.
GameSpy (May 31, 2006)
Rogue Trooper has the makings of a solid action game, but it never quite delivers on its promises. The brevity and ease of its single-player campaign and the lack of substance in its multiplayer combine to make for a relatively unsatisfying experience. There are worse ways to spend a few hours, and probably worse ways to spend 30 bucks. The problem is, unless you're fan, there are better ways as well.
Trop court, trop facile et finalement trop convenu, Rogue Trooper n'intéressera qu'un temps les fans de jeu d'action à la troisième personne. Pas mauvais pour autant, le titre d'Eidos n'apporte simplement rien de plus que la moyenne concourante.

Games like Rogue Trooper make my brain hurt, mainly because it tries to be a competent third person action game with attitude, but ultimately fails at this goal. While it does have momentary flashes of intrigue, it ends up falling prey to the trappings of being a mediocre action shooter.
