Presentation

Normally when I get my hands on an Arcade title, I’d take it with a grain of salt because graphics are one of those areas that are often lacking when you’re limited to digital distribution. Avalanche Studios however decided to go down the smart route of making Renegade Ops as beautiful as they possibly could before players started detonating vast amounts of explosives everywhere.

The whole game is drop dead gorgeous, from the lush jungle sections and fortified bases to the comic book style cutscenes and characters.

The soundtrack is a steady mix of orchestral backing tracks that are overridden by powerful guitar riffs and the steady sound of destruction, further adding to the 80s B-movie feel of the whole game.

Conclusion

Renegade Ops is a fun game wrapped up inside a neat package and presented amidst a hail of gunfire. It feels like an 80s B-Movie and plays a lot like one as well (But with awesome special effects, instead of cheesy ones). The whole game feels like a tongue-in-cheek joke at the expense of the entire B-movie scene, which only adds to the fun of the whole experience.

Co-op and multiplayer are a blast the first few times round, and you may well find yourself burning through the splitscreen co-op campaign with a friend right after you’ve finished the singleplayer. Multiplayer leaves a little to be desired, but it still retains all the core features it needs to be a good multiplayer game. Perhaps the addition of some extra game modes in the future could solve that?

Considering the price of Renegade Ops, it’s not a stretch to afford it and it’s definitely worth the investment. You get plenty of bang for your buck.
