GameTunnel gives RIP 3 a 73%

"The RIP series is getting better with every game in my personal estimation. The wide variety of characters with vehicles and weapons that get cooler with each new game should not be missed". Read the full review here.

GamePlasma gives RIP - Trilogy an 8.4

"I had no idea what to expect, but after a couple minutes with the game, I was lost to it. This shooter brought back memories of Smash TV and the countless hours that I had lost to it in my youth." Read the full review here.

About the Game

With the completion of the third title in the RIP series, the RIP games have become an instant classic in the arcade-shooter genre. RIP — Trilogy brings all three RIP titles into one exciting and heart-pounding pack.

RIP
Not afraid of Death? What if he is accompanied by Halloween and Rock-N-Roll? Play the part of these antiheroes and go to war in this all-out action experience! Each character has their own strengths and skills, but this is not a game for the faint of heart. With over 40 levels to RIP through, the results are murderous!

  • 40 levels of murder and mayhem
  • A variety of guns and battle magic
  • Three chilling characters
  • A toned-down, less violent kid's mode

RIP2 — Strike Back
Your favorite antiheroes are here to strike back with another score to settle. Death, Halloween and Rock-N-Roll...each character has his own strengths and skills, so pick one and start shooting. In Story Mode, you'll fight through 60 furious levels using an arsenal of upgradeable weapons, tanks, helicopters and turrets or for a quick adrenaline fix, play Rush Mode and see how long you can last.

  • Choose from a large arsenal of weapons
  • Assorted vehicles including gun turrets, tanks and helicopters
  • Variety of abilities and power-ups
  • 60 levels of unlimited gameplay
  • Huge boss levels for more challenge
  • Two modes of play; Rush Mode or Story Mode

RIP3 — The Last Hero
RIP3 — The Last Hero combines the dynamics of a hardcore shooter while preserving the elusive classic arcade appeal and never lets up on the intense action. Every level presents a new challenge, requiring you to not only prove your sharp-shooting, but to think and act tactically.

The terrain and environments must be employed to survive waves of adversaries, but since all in-game objects are destructible, you must think fast. Your hero will travel all over the world from the African jungle to the Arctic snow, through secret labs and bunkers, in the streets and skyscrapers of Metropolis city and also go into deep space using a hijacked spaceship.

  • 100 levels of arcade shooting action
  • 6 unique playable characters with varied and powerful skills to develop
  • A huge arsenal of destructive weaponry, each with 2 shooting modes
  • Capture and control military vehicles, including Tanks, Helicopters and Battle Turrets
  • Fully destructible battlefield - all the objects can be damaged and destroyed
  • Includes a space adventure minigame, where you pilot the Vostok-23 starship
  • 12 Huge, challenging bosses evoke classic arcade gameplay
  • 3 difficulty level settings to increase the intensity
  • Special bonuses and secrets are scattered throughout the game
  • Cooperative multiplayer for two players to battle against the enemy hordes
  • Multiplayer death-match for up to 6 players over LAN

RIP 1:
In RIP 1, you are a turret. You can't move, and you are usually located in the center of a small map. Enemies come at you from all directions, most of the time in groups and in formation, and attack you. That's it. There is nothing else to the game. Looking at the screenshots you may think, “this looks like it was made in the early 90s even though it was released in 2007.” You may be right, but it does manage to be mildly fun. As you progress through the 40 levels, you will unlock perks, and there are also about five or so weapons available to you in each level. Sometimes you will have access to three or four of these weapons, and you may choose which one you will use. By trial and error you will figure out that depending on the level, some weapons are much better than others. It took me about one hour to beat the game, and I would say that it was a decent hour of simple, yet fun top down horde shooter action. There is no reason to play through it again, but what it provided in that hour was enough.

RIP 2 - Strike Back:
RIP 2 takes your character of choice out of the turret and makes the game much more twin-stick-shooter-like. With that said, there are still a few levels that require you to use the turret, and they have also added two vehicles you could use in several levels. There is a tank and a cumbersome helicopter. In addition to the vehicles and new control mechanics, the developers also added some new enemies and a few bosses scattered throughout the 60 levels. RIP 2 is noticeably more difficult than the first game in the series, but it's still manageable with the exception of having to repeat one or two levels several times in order to beat them. The enemy pathfinding problems are still there, and because some levels have many more obstacles than on the first game, it becomes much more obvious to notice that the game's AI leaves much to be desired. RIP 2 is basically 60 more levels of the original game with the addition of a few things here and there. It's virtually the same game, but with more levels and some new mechanics. With that said, it's comparable in enjoyment to RIP 1.

RIP 3 - The Last Hero:
This is the first game in the series to actually make an attempt at fleshing out the story. This adds nothing to the quality of the game, even though some of the cutscene artwork is decent if you like their 90s style. The AI and pathfinding problems are much more noticeable in RIP 3 than in the two previous games. This has more to do with the level design being generally worse than in the other two games. Strangely enough, even though it may seem like the developers spent more time with this third installment by adding a few more interesting weapons and polishing the graphics and overall presentation a bit, the game suffers technically, as the AI's behavior is erratic at best, and extremely boring at its worst. Not much has been done to make it better than the other games. It's as if the development team had the urge to make the third game, but very little interest in attempting to make it better. RIP 3 is the least enjoyable of the three games, as it steps down in quality quite frequently through the 100 levels.

The other reviews of RIP - Trilogy are quite harsh. I agree that these games aren't good, but the amount of negativity seems to be coming from people who didn't even give it a chance. If you like simplistic, retro style arcade action, this package is at an OK price and will provide you with a few hours of fun.

RIP - Trilogy is okay.

Instead of playing this game you’d probably have more fun playing backgammon online with your grandmother... 1/10

The first one is boring, the second terrible, and the third mediocre.

The story sounds like it was written by a 14 year old, in Russian, then ran through BabelFish.

Not worth it, even at this low a price.

I was fairly suprised about how good this game was, I'm only talking about one game (the first one) beacause the other two changed the whole style of play and made it terrible. As a semi tower defense game it is extremely entertaining and fun, and it gets more and more difficult every level. The few problems I have with this game is that it is fairly basic, there are not many weapons or character in the game, there isn't any minigames or different game modes. 6/10 for me

Hands down biggest waste of money on Steam. Seriously, there are hundreds of Flash games better than this. Don't buy it. Please.

I can easily, EASILY say that the RIP Trilogy are some of the worst games I've ever played. They are the secret shame of my Steam library. The graphics are amateurish, the gameplay forgettable, the story could have been written better by an eleven-year old. Do yourself a favor and play Crimsonland, or some other good game of this genre.

Even if this is on sale for a dollar, you'd get more enjoyment physically lighting a dollar on fire, and watching the brief flame.
