Destruction is fun.

lunarsilkdragon | April 11, 2014 | See all lunarsilkdragon's reviews »

I really recommend this to people looking for a good co-op experience. It's fun driving around in a car with your buddy and just...wreck some stuff.

The game is seriously just about wrecking shit for points and trying to combo together to get more points. It sounds a bit simple on paper, but in reality it's actually quite fun. Especially with a bro as mentioned above.

There a lot of different levels where you get different objectives, as well as some bonus objectives, to complete. The levels look pretty much the same though, so some people might start to find it boring after a while.

The graphics are really nice. Explosions (which there are a LOT of in this game) look very nice.

I played this with a controller so I can't speak for people using a keyboard, but the car controls were a bit clunky and it was hard to steer your car in tight positions.

There is also an upgrade system for the different characters that you can play as, but it's not very innovative or exciting and could have used some more work, but it does it's job I guess.

Explosions everywhere

Renegade Ops, is a fantastic experience alone and in coop. The game features a very intuitive targeting system that makes it great to play with a controller.

The pace of the game is perfect, never so intense to tire you and never too slow to bore you.

Technically the game is flawless. The graphics look great and all the effects show great care from the developers. The soundtrack isn't memorable but it gets the job done.

Overall the game is great, while it doesn't revolutionise the genre is so solid that you won't care.

Extremely fun vehicular action co-op

commanderhavoc | Nov. 14, 2013 | See all commanderhavoc's reviews »

From the creators of the still extremely fun to play Just Cause 2, we get an outstanding tribute to the old days of over the top action games in the form of Renegade Ops. A madman known only as Inferno is threatening to several of the world's major cities if his demands aren't met and its up to a rogue general to gather up a small band of renegades to fight Inferno and stop him dead in his tracks before more civilians are killed. Each of the Renegades have their own unique set of special abilities and weapons that can provide an edge in the battles, the PC version of the game comes with the Half Life games' protagonist Gordon Freeman as an exclusive, he is actually driving the buggy from Half Life 2 and has the special ability to summon Antlions that attack Inferno's unlucky forces. There's also a slight RPG system involved where you can spend points on certain abilities, like faster weapon cooldown, having a special weapon already at the start of a mission and so on, however you can't equip all of them at once and thus you must plan accordingly as to what you might use. The game is best played with a Xbox-360 Gamepad and also with friends, either one friend in a split screen local co-op or online co-op with up to three friends joining you in the battle against Inferno.

It is very well done. It has many missions, the cooperative does super fun. Vehicles are not many, but they have a lot of customization. The graphics are fine. It's like those games where Mame classic 2d were driving vehicles or soldiers. Very similar, but adapted to the new generation of consoles.

Fantastic, fun experience

darkyhbk | July 16, 2013 | See all darkyhbk's reviews »

Renegade Ops is a very fast paced, explosive vehicle shooter which will have you blow up stuff in a number of detailed, beautifully designed sceneries. You'll have a variety of characters to choose from, each with their own special abilities and skill trees. You earn XP by killing enemy vehicles and completing objectives, and you use the upgrade points to purchase new abilities, be it active or passive, to help you in the fight. You'll pick up power ups to boost your weapons, pick up special weapons and use them when the situation gets out of hand. It's a lot of fun, and it offers enough variety and replayability that you'll love it.

Renegade Ops - review

carlyle | Dec. 31, 2012 | See all carlyle's reviews »

Renegade Ops has a simple structure of the game, is a classic shooter with a view from above, once you have chosen one of the four main characters, he finds himself in a sort of super jeep driving armored different for each character in appearance, but also in some features. Getting good scores during the raids will gain experience to spend to unlock upgrades of various kinds. These allow for example to make the medium more resistant to attack, to extend the reserve of secondary projectiles and so on, ensuring a minimum of customization experience. The levels have a good variety, giving visions of jungles, deserts, ruins, and so on. The maps surprising breadth, so that the developers chose to implement an arrow always ready to show you the way to the next target (primary or secondary). The game manages to entertain in an excellent way, giving some splash of variety, for example, by driving a helicopter, a stolen truck loaded with a nuclear warhead. The best way to enjoy Renegade Ops, however, is in the company of three friends, you can connect online, in local network or via split-screen, limited to two players. With four participants chaos screen will increase exponentially, as well as fun. Is felt in this sense the absence of any additional mode, but the ability to enhance and customize your favorite renegade and quests, provide a good rate of replay value to the product.

Good game but works best with a 360 controller.

xboxer | Aug. 28, 2012 | See all xboxer's reviews »

One of the best top down shooter I've played. Great story and great gameplay.

You play as someone who's saving the world from a mad man and your tool is a vehicle with special abilities.

You're given several characters to choose from and each one has their own unique ability and there is even a skill tree that really makes a difference in the game.

The game takes you to various locations from the jungle to inside an industrial building to a snowy location. Most of the time you will be rushing from A to B taking out many enemies along the way and while the clock is ticking there are other side missions you can undertake for extra points. This adds alot to the challenge.

The gameplay is extremely unforgiving and it certainly requires alot of skills. It's best done with a friend.

The sad thing is this game works best with a 360 controller. Keyboard and mouse just won't cut it.

Good game, bad controlls

sYncz | Aug. 24, 2012 | See all sYncz's reviews »

Pros: Nice looking, cool destruction engine, lots of coop fun, if you have bunch of friends who you can play together with.

Cons: Keyboard controls seem to be really awkward and the game is only playable with a controller. The game might be a bit too short, but dlc makes up for it.

Very good game.

You are driving a car in a top-down perspective, shooting stuff, crashing (a lot of) stuff and doing missions.

You as the player can choose from different cars/characters, everyone with special abilitys (shield,flamethrowers, speedboost). Between missions you can upgrade your car.

The story is about an evil guy, doing evil stuff to the united world and another guy trying to stop him (you). The story is told in a nice comicstyle and the ingame-graphics looks crispy and colourfull.

I bought the game because I liked Wasteland Angels. A very similar game in gameplay, but this is much superior. It has a lot more missions and the story is much more varied.

I only can recommend it if you like driving/action games. Only flaw: Missions can take a bit long at times.

Worth the wait.

renhoelder | June 22, 2012 | See all renhoelder's reviews »

After, what seemed countless delays, the game was finally released and guess what...it didn't disappoint.

If you're looking for good old-school arcade romp in the vein desert strike series, then look no further. The graphics look cool, the handling is good and it's a lot of fun, even more in CO-OP mode.

One recommendation though, play it with a gamepad

Crazy Co-op fun

Baha | Nov. 11, 2011 | See all Baha's reviews »

Renegade ops is a twin stick style shooter but in an open world environment that allows for flexibility when tackling various missions and side quests. There is a variety of a characters to choose from, each with specific special attacks and individual upgradeable stats to cater to your own play style. While the game is somewhat on the short side (9 missions in total), there is incentive to try different characters and unlock upgrades for them as well. There is also free dlc with this version of Renegade Ops that adds Gordon Freeman as a playable character. All in all, Renegade Ops is a fun diversion and worth giving a shot if you're looking for some fun co-op action.

Not what I expected

RaTcHeT302 | Nov. 3, 2011 | See all RaTcHeT302's reviews »

The game presents itself as "awesome" and such, too bad that it's bad controlls and some other oblivious things such as the text saying "Push the start button" made me think that this was just a lazy console port.

The game doesn't even have the ability of letting you to save, it could be really usefull because of how long certain missions can take.

The game difficulty is unfair at higher levels and can become extremely easy later on because of the upgrade system the game uses, you kill enemies and complety secondary levels to level up and buy power ups but you are going to die many times before you can actualy match the enemies firepower properly.

This game should be bought only for the CO-OP gamemode but not because of something else.

Surprise good!

I didn't expected that game will be so fun, but friend told me about it and now I'm glad that I bought it. Pure fun old school arcade game, highly recommended, reminds me of good old amiga times.
