While the story has some interesting beats to it, it is rather bland many times. Mainly due to the main character being a standard soldier type. The upgrades to the visuals is OK, but it is easy to see this was a 2006 game redone. Certain things like animations and the look of the explosions really show the game’s age, but in the end, it didn’t bother me too much.
In a way, it’s tough to write this extremely scathing review of Rogue Trooper Redux. I like the idea of giving a real graphical update to an older cult classic and rereleasing it for people to replay or discover. It just requires understanding that some games do not age even remotely well, and some games shouldn’t really be taken from your nostalgic memories and thrust back into the spotlight. Maybe Rogue Trooper was a decent game in 2006, but it’s an outright disaster in 2017. This trooper should stay rogue.
Rogue Trooper Redux is a fun game, but after plowing through the campaign I’m left wondering why it exists. Why re-release a game that’s perfectly adequate but doesn’t do anything particularly noteworthy or special? What’s even more puzzling is that it ends on a cliffhanger. Considering there has never been a sequel, I would have rather have seen how Rogue’s next chapter played out than tread down a well-worn path once more.
