One of the more surprising video game announcements we’ve seen in a while was the reveal of RoboCop: Rogue City, a first-person shooter set in the world of RoboCop—that is, the legendary 1987 movie directed by Paul Verhoeven and starring Peter Weller, not the 2014 remake. It was unexpected, but now that the game’s demo is out and it has been played, it is now one of the most anticipated games of the fall. The game is a throwback to an old style of game, something that was explored and experimented upon in the early aughts, where developers were still discovering the genre and hadn’t yet settled on making every shooter a Doom or world war game. It has similar elements to older games like The Darkness and The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, where players had to trade and interact with other characters, manipulate guards, and even endure being put in stasis. RoboCop: Rogue City also has this feature, where players have to do their job while also exploring the neighborhood, with the added feature of sitting down with their girlfriend to watch an entire movie that is embedded in the game. The demo starts with an extended action sequence, and as the game progresses, players can level up, solve cases, and mete out justice as they see fit. This game is a different vibe from today’s speedier shooters, as RoboCop moves slowly and deliberately, but can take a ton of bullets and doesn’t have to worry about fall damage. It is set to be released on November 3 and is priced at $50. If this demo is indeed indicative of the final product, it will be a great deal. #RoboCop #VideoGames #Shooters #Throwback
