Retro City Rampage is a GTA like pixel world filled with memes and steriotypes. It really feels like the old GTA2 with features from the later games. It has a decent story line and a heaploads of fun.

I recomend having it and running if if you are bored.

Retro City Rampage's gameplay, setting and style are summarised by the title. You're in a city, it's based on various old games and the objective is mainly to murder anyone onscreen. It is a parody of the 80's in general, with references to old games, films and pop stars in abundance. The game may get repetitive after a while, but with the astounding amount of content and fantastic references, it will take a while. The soundtrack is also one of the best out there.

Pre-Release Review
so many homages, so many awesome mini games. such a beautiful and detailed style.
The controls and gameplay are spot on. This game captures a huge amount of retro feel and charm while adding fresh ideas. It plays and feels a bit like a newer GTA game but with the gaming style of the first one and the visuals of an NES home console.
All I can say is it's a great game

A very entertaining 8-bit game which fuses famous 80's movies with video game nostalgia. If you're a movie buff or you're familiar with retro games from the nes/master drive era then you'll pick up on all the hidden bits in this game. Clever writing with alotta love. It's a retro gta but there's so much more that that.
