robocop

If there is one movie series that left a mark on me as a child, it is Robocop. The idea of a police officer getting injured so severely that he was going to die but being saved by being turned into a cyborg cop was mindboggling. Now, a piece of our childhood has returned to us in the form of Robocop: Rogue City.

The contents of these DLCs differ; some add new regions or characters, but it is essentially a unique story told as an extension of the original.

ROBOCOP: ROGUE CITY FEATURES AN ORIGINAL STORY, BRINGING BACK MEMBERS OF THE ORIGINAL CAST

In the world of Robocop, you are protecting and serving the public trust in lower Detroit. It is one of the worst places in this dystopian universe, where a corporation tries to control everything within the city. Rogue City takes place between the periods of the second and third movies.

Armed with your trusty Auto-9 Pistol, gang members will not stand a chance against you. Throughout Rogue City, there will be up to twenty weapons to wield, so have fun finding them all. The grenade launcher and the heavy machine guns are a lot of fun. Your main weapon is your life.

Some nodes can be upgraded by adding OCP chips to them. These chips are found in OCP container boxes, which are spread out throughout the world. Each node adds bonuses and some negatives to your weapon. Upgrades are important, especially with certain robots named ED that show up later in the game. I had to turn the joystick settings almost all the way up to counter the sluggishness of aiming on the PlayStation 5.

There are missions and side missions to accomplish at every zone you travel to. The Police cruiser is your access to the different areas based on story need. Within every zone, serving the public trust and upholding the law is paramount to leveling Robocop up.

The good people at Teyon have hit this one out of the park. Robocop: Rogue City is a surprising hit in my eyes, and I hope everyone can look at it. The graphic artists have captured old Detroit from the movies in a new way, and the gameplay mechanics are designed at a high level.
