Rocket Riot ist eine ungemein kurzweilige Mischung aus Geometry Wars, Jetpack und Worms auf Speed. Man fliegt durch komplett zerstörbare Pixelwelten, die sich mit der Zeit wieder neu formieren, trotzt der Schwerkraft, sammelt verheerende Power-Ups und deckt seine Gegner mit Raketensalven ein. Bei acht wild um sich ballernden Spielern wird's je nach Spielmodus zwar teils extrem chaotisch und man vermisst sonst gängige Anpassungsmöglichkeiten wie deaktivierbares Friendy Fire oder eine manuelle Einschränkung der verfügbaren Power-Ups, aber die meiste Zeit ist Rocket Riot einfach eine Mordsgaudi, der man sowohl mit bis zu drei Freunden offline als auch mit bis zu acht Teilnehmern online bzw. via System-Link frönen kann. Auch für Solisten wird einiges geboten, wobei sich die mitunter durchaus interessanten Aufgaben der 80 Levels umspannenden Story-Kampagne zu oft wiederholen und teils unnötige Längen aufweisen.
Worth Playing
Rocket Riot is a great example of how a game can come out with little to no hype and still be a wonderful gem. The graphical art style is unique enough for it to stand out in a positive light, and the audio is also just as good. The controls take a bit of getting used to, but that unfamiliarity only lasts a minute or two. Even though the online portion is barren, both local multiplayer and the single-player modes give the title enough meat to make it worth the money. Players should try out the demo to discover just how crazy and fun Rocket Riot can be.
Rocket Riot is the perfect game for people who like to sit on the couch with their friends and duke it out with an endless supply of missiles. The single-player campaign is fun while it lasts, but the real value here is in multiplayer brawls. It's disappointing that there don't seem to be many online matches, but when you destroy your friend in slow-motion pixel-busting glory, you really want him to be sitting next to you anyway.
