Rogue Trooper – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood, Use of Alcohol, Violence

Whilst not excessively, distractingly bloody, Rogue Trooper remains a game predicated on violence and the stealth kills alone justify (at least) its Teen rating. As such, Parents may wish to note that the ESRB rating seems rather lenient.

Fans of war-based action and semi-strategic combat should certainly consider Rogue Trooper unless they feel a total aversion to its sci-fi setting, as the game presents battlefield gameplay in a fun and well though out way. While it may not win awards for intensity, groundbreaking artificial intelligence or stunning technical feats, this is a well made and sometimes innovative jack-of-all trades that never stops being satisfying, compulsive entertainment.

Subtitles are provided for Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers, but almost a little too generously: Even the tiniest incidental enemy shout is subtitled in large lettering just above the onscreen radar; the text overlaps confusingly with objective commands and its colour coding is not particularly helpful when there is so much information clustered together. It ends up trying a bit too hard and just looks off-puttingly messy. That said, there are no game-ruining oversights that will actually hinder the player's progression.
