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 This 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.

  • 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

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 is a top down shooter where you are in control of a single canon tower. Swams of enemies come from all around as you fend them off. This is another 8 bit style graphic game which I seem to be playing a lot of recently, but you don't seem to notice it much as you are more focused on not dying.

Some of the levels are pretty hectic until you find the Gatling gun, like in many other games, this weapons rips through anything that comes your way. I found myself getting stuck on level fifteen, this was the hardest level in the game, while the game is short, it's just the right length before the gameplay started to feel stale.

I am very much looking forward to playing RIP 2; hopefully this will add some more mechanics.

Definitely recommend trying this title.

Boring, repetitive, and a waste of 50 cents. I should have bought two gumballs instead...

The RIP Trilogy, along with the other Meridian4 games, are among the first games I've bought here on Steam. Most games published by Meridian4 are 'OK' games. As far as I know none of the games are amazing but none of them are garbage aswell. Same goes for the RIP trilogy.

The RIP Trilogy, obviously exists of three games:
-RIP
-RIP2:Strike Back
-RIP3:The Last Hero

All three games are pretty much the same; Kill all spawning enemies, Pick up powerups/weapons and level up. The only real difference I can come up with would be the fact you controll a stationary base cannon in RIP(1), whereas in the other two games you'll be able to walk around and in later in the game, you will be able to controll vehicles.

Gameplay is standard but fun and quite addictive. You could compare it to 'Crimsonland' which, most likely took this game as an example. The weird thing though, while many people rate Crimsonland positively, I do not get the negative ratings about this trilogy. It's obvious a lot more work has been involved in the RIP-Trilogy compared to Crimsonland, just look at the screenshots.

The RIP-Trilogy is not perfect and it's not for everyone but I believe fans of the genre won't be dissapointed.

Another forgettable top down slaughterfest with hoardes of copypasta enemies tossed your way throughout the game. Don't waste your time and money buying this snorezville of a game. Even as the best in the trilogy, it doesn't warrant taking up even a second of mine or anyone else's time.

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.
