...but it's fun. Of all of the problems and shortcomings with Rogue Warrior, it's a blast. The campaign was seven hours well spent, and while I don't have an interest in replaying it anytime soon, I had a great time. Sometimes you just want a straight-forward action game, and this definitely fulfilled that need. With the campaign behind me, I decided to check out the multiplayer which includes Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch modes. The online community for this game is very small, and one night I couldn't even get a Team Deathmatch game going because eight people couldn't get together. What multiplayer I was able to play was alright, but not something that was interesting enough to keep me coming back for more.

Worst of all, however, is that single player Rogue Warrior is incredibly short, with only eight missions. On the normal difficulty setting, I can play it from beginning to end in two hours (three hours on expert difficulty). Multiplayer is limited to two modes, deathmatch and team deathmatch. I don’t know who decided that two or three hours worth of dumb AI, boring and useless stealth mechanics and enough profanity to make most sailors blush is worth full price, but they’re wrong. If you wait until the game shows up in the bargain bin, or until Bethesda releases enough DLC to add enough content to the game to make it worth $49.99, then you might want to pick it up. Until then, steer clear.

Jetzt ist mir endlich klar, warum die UdSSR den Kalten Krieg verloren hat: Ihre Soldaten haben dem Gegner immer den Rücken zugedreht, ihre Nuklearbunker sind nicht abgeschlossen und in nicht einmal vier Stunden kann ein einzelner Mann ihre komplette Verteidigungsstrategie aushebeln. Klingt nach Blödsinn? Natürlich, das ist es auch! So wie das komplette Spiel, das in keinem Punkt aktuellen Standards gerecht wird. Außerdem: Ich kenne den echten Dick Marcinko nicht, aber wenn er im realen Leben so menschenverachtend vorgeht wie in Rogue Warrior, wäre er die letzte Person, die ein eigenes Spiel verdient hätte. Nicht mal ein so schlechtes wie dieses.

Rogue Warrior es un título que no ha sabido estar a la altura del largo proceso de desarrollo que lleva a sus espaldas. El argumento podría haber dado lugar a un título con una jugabilidad más variada y depurada –aunque ofrece algunos elementos de infiltración que son de agradecer-, pero la obra de Rebellion Studios se ve perjudicada por la escasísima duración del título, algo inaceptable hoy en día dado el alto precio al que se venden los juegos. Esta duración es la misma vida del juego, pues el multijugador no incentiva a ser usado más que para convencernos de que estamos perdiendo el tiempo –si es que conseguimos entrar en una partida-. El apartado técnico cumple dado el nivel del resto de apartados de un título que está condenado a pasar desapercibido por méritos propios. Marcinko, la misión ha fracasado.

Multiplayer modes, at least as this review is being written, are hard to judge, simply because the game requires you to actually have at least four people in a match. You can’t play with bots, and it seems real people know better than to buy this heap. Online leaderboards where the highest scoring individual had achieved TWO wins four days after release pointed to some troubling times. Even if you’re a tremendous fan of Marcinko and love his books, rent this one before you spend your hard-earned cash. The season is too full of top-notch games and excellent DLC for you to spend your cash on this stinker.

You have to wonder how something like this makes its way onto shelves as a full-priced product. Though there's some sort of ironic fun to be had by cruising through the short campaign and listening to Mickey Rourke shout obscenities, it's practically impossible to wring $60 of excitement out of this disc. If you're the ironic type that loves dumb games, you'll have a few laughs at Rogue Warrior's expense, but even compared to ironic favorites like 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, Rogue Warrior comes up short.

Rogue Warrior is easily one of the worst games on the Xbox 360. Featuring broken stealth action and bland tactical shooting, Rogue Warrior is a miserable experience, and best avoided at all costs.

Rogue Warrior er en fattigmandsudgave af Splinter Cell, fuldstændig rippet for alt det, der gør dette spil godt. Det finder aldrig helt ud af, hvilken slags spil, det egentlig vil være, så det ender med at være en blanding mellem action og stealth, som kunne have fungeret bedre med bare lidt mere energi og vision hos Rebellion.

PlayStation 3Gamervision
With lackluster multiplayer offerings and one of the shortest singleplayer campaigns in recent memory, Rogue Warrior is a smudge on Bethesda’s otherwise stellar record. In a holiday season littered with AAA titles it’s not worth paying attention to. Hell, if it were the only game released in 2009 it still wouldn’t be worth playing. The very fact that there's an attempt to charge $60 is insulting. Save your money, spend it on anything else, and forget Rogue Warrior ever existed.

It’s amazing that a game like Rogue Warrior even made it to shelves. Bethesda has pretty much kept the title quiet, and it’s easy to see why. From the broken shooting, to the lackluster stealth mechanics, there’s almost no redeeming qualities here. With so many good titles on shelves this year – this is a game that should be avoided at all costs.

Instead, Rogue Warrior is a generic, buggy and broken shooter with limited appeal, even to dedicated fans of Marcinko and the many books and novels that have documented his incredible life. In fact, do yourself a favor and pick up Demo Dick's books instead, because Rebellion's SNAFU of an FPS simply pales in comparison in every conceivable way.

Complice uno sviluppo molto travagliato, Rogue Warrior da interessante sparatutto cooperativo in terza persona si è trasformato nel corso degli anni in un prodotto mediocre sotto ogni punto di vista. L’indubbio carisma del personaggio è del tutto sprecato, l’azione di gioco banale e per nulla appassionante, la tecnica pessima. Con la grandissima quantità di shooter di ben altra qualità oggi presenti sul mercato, non c’è davvero alcun motivo per soffermarsi su questo titolo, a meno che non siate fan sfegatati del protagonista o di “strage di comunisti” su Facebook. Solo un prezzo budget avrebbe potuto salvare le sorti di questo progetto nato sotto una cattiva stella, ma la macchina del commercio non l’ha purtroppo permesso. Prezzato pienamente e distribuito all’alba del 2010, Rogue Warrior è semplicemente un titolo da evitare a prescindere da gusti ed opinioni personali.

In a time of MW2 and Gears shooters, Rogue Warrior brings us back in time "videogame wise," as much as its over the top 80's movie theme does. A generic shooter that offers up nothing new, Rogue Warrior falls flat. Although Rourke will give you some of the best sounds bytes a game has to offer, it's not enough to warrant anything close to the $60 price tag Rogue Warrior demands.

Algo pasa en Rebellion. Un estudio que en su momento fue capaz de crear clásicos como Aliens vs Predator no puede arrastrarse ahora perpetrando títulos como Shellshock 2: Blood Trails o el mismo Rogue Warrior que nos ocupa. El traslado al mundo de los videojuegos de la violenta historia de Richard Marcinko no sólo es poco inspirada y torpe, sino que es de un nivel insultantemente pobre en todos los sentidos. En una palabra: Terrible.

Every bit of Rogue Warrior is either mediocre or much, much worse, and my initial reaction was incredulity over the fact that such a limited, tossed-off experience would ship within weeks of a complete package like Modern Warfare 2. As for the more damning realization that Rogue Warrior can't even compete with some of this console generation's earliest shooters (Call of Duty 2, Perfect Dark Zero, etc.)? Well, that's more laughable than any of Marcinko's profane quips.

Xbox 360GameFocus
Anyone who is tricked into paying full price for this game should never be allowed to buy another game, ever. Be smart and check it out as a rental or grab it soon when it finds its way to the bargain bin, sporting a big red tag that says CLEARANCE. Otherwise, avoid this dog of a game at all costs.

Le développement des jeux a évolué à un tel point qu'il est particulièrement rare qu'un titre PS3 ou Xbox 360 soit vraiment pire que médiocre, mais Rogue Warrior est haut la main le plus mauvais jeu auquel j'ai joué sur l'une ou l'autre plate-forme depuis très très longtemps. On pourrait dire que c'est un jeu bon marché, une merde destinée à faire du fric, mais il n'est en fait pas si bon marché que cela et le côté « faire du fric » semble son meilleur argument. Par contre, à la question : est-ce une merde ? La réponse est sans équivoque : absolument.

So what's there to do once your two hours are up and the credits roll? Well, you could check out Rogue Warrior's stripped suite of multiplayer options, which let up to eight players shoot each other up in deathmatch or team deathmatch. But that's it. There are no other modes, no persistent rewards (unless you count the all-but-empty online leaderboards), no classes, no customizable loadouts--and no fun. There's nothing to draw you back in, making Rogue Warrior a waste of time and money. If for any reason you still feel compelled to check it out, consider this: Dick's atrocious lines were mixed into a rap that plays during the end credits. It's a summary of everything that makes Rogue Warrior so excruciating to play, condensed into a three-minute song.

Game development has evolved to the point where it's pretty rare that a PS3 or Xbox 360 release is actually anything worse than mediocre, but Rogue Warrior is easily the worst game I've played on either platform for a long, long time. You could call it cheap, exploitative trash, but it's not actually that cheap, and the exploitation elements are probably the best thing it's got going for it. Trash though? Absolutely.

The next time you are playing a terrible game and you think to yourself 'this is awful', please consider those unfortunate enough to have actually played through Rogue Warrior. To paraphrase a classic Futurama line 'the only thing Rouge Warrior does better than other games is suck'. I wish this game would go hibernate in a deep, dark corner of the forest, emerging only to find food every few months until it was too fat to hunt on its own and was eventually and inevitably selected as the weakest of its herd and taken down with a few well placed buckshot rounds, dragged from its wooded home, and splayed on the hood of a Chevy pickup. It absolutely blows that much.

Bijna alles aan Rogue Warrior is slecht afgewerkt. Grafisch is de game maar half af en de besturing werkt niet echt lekker. Daarnaast hapert de game en duurt deze hoogstens twee uur. 60 euro is pure diefstal voor deze game, maar zelfs in de budgetbak zou deze nog te duur zijn.

Rogue Warrior for the Xbox 360 is a forgettable and completely unoriginal game that, sadly enough, doesn’t do justice to the first-person shooter genre. I simply adore first-person shooters and have seen my share of good ones as well as bad ones but Rogue Warrior is the first game that made me feel the sting of disappointment. Sorry, Bethesda, but I cannot see myself recommending this game to anyone.

Multiplayer is hideous and I couldn’t even get it to work right so I can’t really report on it in detail - the single player was so bad that by the time I got to multiplayer I literally just wanted to reach into the screen, grab a gun and shoot myself in the head - although the AI is so bad I probably would have shot the wall instead. Rogue Warrior, instead of being an exciting game about a war hero has ended up an absolute mess with broken AI, graphics from a decade ago and constant swearing that will irritate the hell out of you. This should never have been released and it needed someone in the company with common sense to pull the plug before it went gold. Avoid at all costs.

And good Christ, is this game bland. The graphics (and particularly textures) would’ve looked bad (and dated) circa 2001. The story is nearly non-existent and involves Marcinko disobeying orders and sabotaging Soviet installations. Explosions are surprisingly minimal—although there are fair share of missiles blown up. Similarly, sound, gunfire and grenades are all delivered with a small pop rather than a roar—hardly the “full-f—king Faulkner with lots of sound and fury,” Marcinko refers to (yes, that’s a real line). Just about every mission is made up of instructions to infiltrate a base/facility/installation, grab intel or blow the place up (or both) and escape. But the worst part about Rogue Warrior is that it’s so unbelievably forgettable there’s no reason to even waste space in your brain for it. You’ll just forget it—and the full four hours it takes to complete—in less than a day.

Whatever you do, do not buy this game, even if you happen to have the spare cash lying around. The gameplay is poorly done, the visuals are substandard and the profanity is laughable. The only reason anyone would ever want this title is for achievement/trophy farming, but even then you should rent it or look for a bargain basement sale. Even then, it’s hard to justify polluting your game account with this detritus. I will say it again: do not buy this game.

In condemning this game, I can't help but feel like an opportunistic hunter pouncing on the most pathetic zebra in the herd. But Rogue Warrior is a hobbled, wheezing creature stumbling around so far away from its peers that not going for the jugular could be seen as an act of cruelty. And besides that, every time I feel a surge of predator's remorse, I just remind myself that the difficulty select screen called me a pussy, and I get over it.

Xbox 360The Review Busters
If I forgot some things to bring up on this game there is a good reason for that. Rogue Warrior is the worst valued game on next gen consoles right now. At best this 2 hour game should be a ten dollar download. Once you beat this short game there is no reason to keep it since nobody will play it online. Gamers need to avoid this game like the plague.
