  • In Renegade Ops you must defeat Inferno, a madman intent on global domination. Destroy enemies across a range of stunning environments using a wide variety of vehicles. Players have the choice to fight alone in single player mode, team up offline with two-player split screen or join the dynamic 4-player online co-op experience. Blast your way through enemy lines by working together, or compete for achievements as you and your friends aim to top the online leader boards.

    The plot is brief, the video review on the other hand gets in-depth. So let’s take a look shall we?

    So how does this old school beauty score? Let’s take a look.

    Gameplay: 7

    Imagine the moment your toy soldiers car came to live and you’ve got the vibe it’s all about over the top explosions combined with some clever combo scoring, you’ve got yourself a great top down shooter.

    The controls handle brilliantly, the twin stick control system adds that instant arcade classic feel and in minutes you are hooked and the carnage has begun.

    Graphics: 8

    By using the same engine that powered the great looking Just Cause 2, the guys at avalanche have added triple A quality to an arcade title. The graphics make the game so much more immersive as every detail emerges even from the top down view, nothings missing you want skid marks and tire smoke you got it, how about special power moves that go off like mini-nukes, it’s all there for you and brilliantly done.

    Sound: 9

    Avalanche have scored themselves an extra bonus review point for sound because firstly the music rocks. It develops steadily with each level and ends up building up into major rock overtures at all the right times, but what about that bonus point? I included that because it’s actually the development teams OWN band, how awesome is that!?


    A great break from the regular onslaught of FPS heavy hitters. Yes, it’s a little cliché with the renegade story line but it needs it to deliver that A-Team feel that it does so well. You’ll soon have a favorite character and find yourself cheering them on through each level. Carnage! A truly triple-A arcade title.
