It was voted Flat-Out Worst Game in Gamespot's 2009 Readers' Choice Awards.
The game was originally called Rogue Warrior: Black Razor and it was first announced in the Fall of 2006, with Zombie Studios Inc. as the developer. It was set to be released in 2007 but disappeared off the radar. In 2009 the title eventually resurfaced and publisher Bethesda stated publicly that it was not satisfied by the way Zombie originally took the game. It was passed on to Rebellion and released in November 2009.
It received the award for Worst Game We Thought Might Be Just Be Worst Game in GameShark's Game of the Year Awards 2009.
