Streets of Rogue Review: A Delightful, Ultra-Violent Sandbox

There was a time when Grand Theft Auto wasn't a sprawling landscape for you to deal out unhinged destruction, but rather a top-down, more-confined-yet-still-open-ended sandbox… for you to deal out unhinged destruction. Those were simpler times -- not necessarily better than what we have now because the current GTA playground is a sheer joy to visit, but great in their own right. Streets of Rogue is almost like a mix of both worlds with a bunch of other stuff thrown in to really dial up the insanity.

It's so much fun!

The world of Streets of Rogue is pixelated, colorful, and cute. I'm serious. Those thugs, mobsters, drug dealers, and zombies are super adorable. The whole game has this quirky look to it, and its ultra-violence is stylistically contrasted by the intense visual charm.

The music is also good, with synth-y awesomeness thumping away in each of the game's stages. You'll hear these songs a lot, so it's great that they're all pretty catchy.

I'll be the first to admit that the tutorial in Streets of Rogue made me groan. But once I was given free reign, I was all too excited to visit and revisit the game. Even after having spent so much time with it already, I'm still itching to return to it in my free time. Whether you're playing in short bursts or making a day of it, Streets of Rogue is one of the most addictive and entertaining action games of the year, either solo or with a group of buddies.

Score: 8.5 out of 10
