Publisher: Vblank Entertainment

Retro City Rampage DX reimagines the open-world crime genre like it's 1989. Jump on civilians for coins, then steal their car and outrun the law! Explore the city and complete missions, or just go on a rampage with your weapons, power-ups and vehicles! This pop culture send-up includes a full Story Mode of open-world adventure, plus Arcade Challenges for quick pick-up-and-play action. If that's not enough, it also packs an interactive city full of shops, minigames, customisations, collectibles, special guest stars and more.

This is the third time we've reviewed this game, on each occasion a more feature-packed and improved iteration. Despite its 2010 roots - and pop culture references to match that time - it stands up extremely well, as pixels this stylish and action this chaotic don't lose their edge. Retro City Rampage DX is still an anarchic, almost overloaded game that bombards the senses while, at the same time, maintaining impressive polish in its gameplay. Whether you're playing it for the crazy story, excessive retro-styled violence or a mix of both, it still has the goods.

8 / 10.0

Despite such a late release RCRDX, the game still feels and plays at the proper level, the passing game for the Nintendo Switch was my fourth walkthrough of this game, replay value, references to all sorts of subculture, atmosphere and spirit is my favorite era for 80 years, all it just is not in RCRDX, all of this in her over the edge, I could advise to go through this game at least once? No doubt.

Gameplay wise, you’ll be hard-pressed to run out of things to do in RCR. Not only is there a free roam mode right off the bat, but the New Game+ is crazy and off the wall too. We’re talking dozens of hours of gaming here, and if you’ve never played RCR before, probably even more. I don’t hesitate when I say that Retro City Rampage is a must play for any retro-gaming fan, open world fan, or Nintendo gamer. It’s iconic, and worth the investment. And yes, RCR DX on the Switch is probably the best version out there.
