Super Rocket Shootout
Top Critic Average
Publisher: Plug In Digital
Super Rocket Shootout is a bit short on single-player content, but what it offers for the lone rocket-strapping, shotgun-wielding player is a welcome addition to what is, at its core, an excellent party game package. As such, if you happen to have one to three friends available feel free to bump that final review score by one. The over-the-top insane action and laughs you will get with your friends more than justifies it.
Super Rocket Shootout brings an unlikely mix of 2D platforms with fighting action inspired by a familiar Nintendo series and it works well enough. Its plot is full of humour, the lifespan may be short but it's captivating and the multiplayer clearly stands out. Where Super Rocket Shootout ends up disappointing is in its too long and mandatory tutorial and on the lack of any online multiplayer functionalities.

The simplicity of Super Rocket Shootout cannot be understated. It's a good ‘ol jump in and have fun sort of situation with the gameplay. It tosses in some goodies here and there for variety, but ultimately it just wants you to have quick bouts of fun. That's a concept I grew up with in the arcade days of gaming and this is a concept that works for me with Super Rocket Shootout. That doesn't mean that I don't believe it can't be more, and it should, but as it stands it's fun. That's why you play games, folks, for the ‘fun'.
