Out now in North America, later this month in the EU.
I suppose one way of looking at Retro City Rampage would be that it is a virtual interactive museum to the eighties and nineties, with a light sprinkling of modern day thrown in. It’s a homage to gaming and started its life quite a way back (2002 in fact) and has evolved into this, ultimately a top down open world action adventure game in the GTA veign but also has little tastes from other things such as Road Rage among others, all designed within with an 8-bit visual style.
The game features quite a few missions (over 60) and challenges (40) along with many weapons and vehicles, and is littered with a great deal of humour and parody. From what I have seen there is a nod to almost everything in gaming history, with a nice touch of being able to customise your visual experience more to the console you may have played this on, including a nice “portable brick monochrome” effect.
The game will be with us later this month, but is already out in North America for $14.99. It is also a Cross Buy title meaning both PS3 and Vita copies come for the same price, and also takes advantage of Cross Save.
I hope to bring you an exact date and price closer to the time, as well as a review . But in the mean time, why don’t you get to grips with this launch trailer and selection of images?
