I really didn't know what to expect when I started playing Rogue Trooper. I didn't see much advertising or any previews for the game, but I was surprised by the end result. Rogue Trooper takes a similar approach to an action game as kill.switch, except that Rogue Trooper is far better. Yes, you still hide behind cover and blindfire where needed, but unlike kill.switch, this game feels far less like a shooting gallery. It's more lenient which lets the action come faster. Also, the enemies aren't just soldiers, but planes, subs, mortars and tanks. It also throws in some cool tricks like using your rifle as a sentry gun and creating a holograph to distract enemies. You get some greta upgrades too, like a mortar, shotgun, beam rifle and incendiary grenades. The game isn't particularly hard or long, but it's gameplay is solid, framerate consistent and it never seems boring. Overall, it's the kind of game that warrants a rental, but has too little replayability to hold your interest past a few days.

If you have been eagerly awaiting KS2, then this game will satisfy your need to "hug a wall" and "blind-fire" your enemies to death. Solid action, pretty good graphics. Somewhat unique arsenal. I highly recommend this fps as a rental. Sadly, multi-player is great if you like co-op battles only (no Conquests or CTFs).

This game was one of the best shooters i have ever played. The combination of all out fighting and stealth are well blended to create a great game play experience. By far the best thing about this game is the physics. However co-op mode was a little disappointing. If you enjoyed star wars battle grounds and such things of that nature, you will love this game.
