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 solid remaster that gives a classic cover-based shooter a relevant and well deserved place in the proverbial spotlight once more. Problems such as clunky movement and slow weapon selection / reload does hamper the experience to some degree, but there’s no denying that the overall package is well rounded and robust enough to please returning fans and newcomers alike. This may not pack the same punch as the origin title but it still delivers a decent shooter that deserves some attention.
