Rollerdome combines different elements like parkour movements, shooting and skating into a smooth experience. That being said, Rollerdome gets repetitive quite easily and lack of some in depth modes or features can be felt. Nevertheless, if you want to try shooting while doing some crazy stunt, give it a try!

Rollerdrome is a short, chaotic glimpse into a near dystopian future where the X-Games and the re-emergence of bloodsports have collided to bring viewers the most entertaining TV show ever.
Rollerdrome produces some badass moments with its combination of X Games action and bullet-time violence, but it doesn’t replicate what made the OlliOlli games such Zenlike fun. Those looking for a challenge will find it here, but given Rollerdrome’s bland presentation, imperfect controls, and grueling approach to level design, many players will quickly skate on to something else.
Mixing the colour palette of 80s comic books with post-apocalyptic bloodlust, movement in this fluid game feels sublime. Until you get shot in the head
A sleek skating hybrid with plenty of compelling ideas and some stylish presentation, but the longer it goes on the more frustrating it becomes.
Rollerdrome is a roller coaster that goes up so that the tracks are finished just as you are about to go down it. It is one of those games that accompanies you through an incredible learning process. And just when you're ready for the best; just when you're ready to let yourself be embraced by him... it ends up leaving you wanting more.

When everything comes together, Rollerdrome feels incredible, but too often, things get buried under the weight of its many systems. While even at its worst, there is definitely fun to be had here, this feels like an incredible concept for a game where the developers needed to spend a little more time workshopping what aspects of it were really needed. It’s still a good game, though, and the foundation is in place for a sequel to be truly incredible.
Rollerdrome is an action game smartly mixed rollerskating and shooting. While the fast, exciting action and retro style musics are impressive, relatively scarce volumes and cartoon rendered visuals can be divided into likes and dislikes.

„Rolledrome” is like „Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater” on steroids. Just put your roller skates on and shoot some enemies! All of that with fantastic OST from Electric Dragon and fancy graphic straight from “XIII”.

My time with Rollerdrome was filled with ups and downs. The core idea is great, but it took a while for me to warm up to an extreme sports game that puts pressure on you to juggle multiple things at once.
Rollerdrome created a unique, stylish action game that new players can enjoy and demonstrate their skills at, while also bringing older fans some of the magic Roll7 has been known for over the year. We liked this experimental game but some aspects could be improved. The game feels like the start for something more rich to come in the future.

A unique and challenging game that will keep you entertained long after the initial charm wears off.
Despite its limitations, Roll7 should be lauded for putting out such an interesting idea. Rollerdrome feels like a seed that can flourish into something greater. Extreme sports games with this kind of gimmick don't come along often and it's worth strapping on some skates to experience.
Unfortunately, the package ends up feeling a bit bare. The story is window dressing, and the gameplay is lacking in variety. The lack of multiplayer also feels like a missed opportunity. Without it, there’s not much replayability other than an online leaderboard.
Once you get to grips with its demands, Rollerdrome’s core concept is realised immaculately. With glorious backup from its retro stylings, each run is peppered with audacious stunts that would grace any action movie. It flags towards the end, however, thanks to an inelegant pile-on of difficulty, a lack of new twists, and disregard for its character’s story and narrative themes.
All in all, Rollerdrome absolutely nailed it in terms of gameplay but it came at the cost of other aspects such as the story. The two-tier system of guns and tricks is so well done that I constantly find myself trying to outdo my previous score because I know I can do better. Unfortunately, the game failed to tie the overarching story and gameplay together in any meaningful way. If it’s stylish action you’re looking for, Rollerdrome’s got that covered for a while. It’s just a shame that doesn’t offer much else.
This deadly discotheque of a game is an experience for sure.
Rollerdrome doesn’t completely nail every trick, but it’s still a smooth shooter with more style than most other entries in the genre.
Rollerdrome certainly has its issues, but the overwhelmingly chaotic action is fun enough to compensate. I continually found myself dropping back into levels to try and chase higher scores and take out my foes with increasing style. There are elements that could have been fleshed out further, but considering the scope of the project, I'm impressed with the results.
Rollerdrome isn’t going to be for everyone. If you’ve got better reflexes than I and find things to be less of a challenge than I did, you can test your meddle against other real-world players thanks to online leaderboards in addition to an unlockable “Out for Blood” mode that amps up the difficulty (no thanks). If that excites you, then you certainly shouldn’t hesitate.
