PAX 10: Retro City Rampage hands-on interview of glory

0

I've always known that Retro City Rampage was going to be funny. After playing it, I now know that it's going to be fun; really, really fun.

The game's simple controls and interface make the game incredibly easy to jump into. From there, you've got so much stuff to do, and it all happens so fast, with the pefect mixture of action and comedy. Picture a modern GTA game, but sped up by about x1.5, and with rocket launchers, flame throwers, milk bars, and violent pedestrians everywhere. Then populate it with characters from all your favorite games, movies, and TV shows from the 80's and 90's. That's Retro City Rampage.

If you're like me and you always wanted to like the GTA series, but couldn't get past the wanna-be gangster movie vibe, then Retro City Rampage is for you. Even if you love GTA exactly the way it is, I think you'll still love this game. How could you not? This is a new top-down GTA set in videogame-land. It's such an obviously good idea, I'm surprised that no one has done it sooner.

Retro City Rampage is coming to WiiWare and undisclosed consoles later this year.
