Great video game ideas in action, rule number one. Whenever possible, hire Mickey Rourke to do the extremely vulgar voice acting for your game, as in Rogue Warrior, based on the real life of veteran soldier Richard "Dick" Marcinko. Is it a case of gilding the lilly and adding to an already great game, or the only thing that makes the game worth playing?
Well, reviewer Paul Semel waded into the fray to take a look, and this is what he had to say about it:
'Rogue Warrior is a first-person shooter based on the life of, and the autobiography of the same name by, Richard “Dick” Marcinko, a veteran U.S. soldier who served with the Navy SEALs in Vietnam, and later formed Red Cell, who were tasked with testing the security of bases, submarines, and, most famously (or embarrassingly, since they managed to infiltrate it), Air Force One. In other words, an interesting character. Oh, if only we could say the same for this game.'
Well, that certainly doesn't sound too encouraging. Perhaps you should read the rest of the review and see what score it got, so you can accurately assess for yourself whether it's worth playing. Come back, let us know. We're curious to see what you think.
