Charming absurdity blended with fun, varied gameplay makes me mad it took me this long to play Retro City Rampage.
This is the third time we've reviewed this game, on each occasion a more feature-packed and improved iteration. Despite its 2010 roots - and pop culture references to match that time - it stands up extremely well, as pixels this stylish and action this chaotic don't lose their edge. Retro City Rampage DX is still an anarchic, almost overloaded game that bombards the senses while, at the same time, maintaining impressive polish in its gameplay. Whether you're playing it for the crazy story, excessive retro-styled violence or a mix of both, it still has the goods.
Gameplay wise, you’ll be hard-pressed to run out of things to do in RCR. Not only is there a free roam mode right off the bat, but the New Game+ is crazy and off the wall too. We’re talking dozens of hours of gaming here, and if you’ve never played RCR before, probably even more. I don’t hesitate when I say that Retro City Rampage is a must play for any retro-gaming fan, open world fan, or Nintendo gamer. It’s iconic, and worth the investment. And yes, RCR DX on the Switch is probably the best version out there.
Even if you don't have a penchant for pixel art or consider yourself a popular culture vulture, there's plenty to enjoy in Retro City Rampage DX. Take the 5-6 hour main story stages at your own pace while exploring all the little nooks and crannys of Theftropolis and you'll find a wealth of customization, add-ons, minigames and a variety of vehicles and weapons to try out.
A thoroughly enjoyable and satisfying retro themed sandbox which will appeal to both fans of the 8 bit era and open world adventure games.
