  • Original-gamer.com - 8.0/10.0
    "If you are looking for a good Deathmatch or Team Deathmatch time, this game is the game for you. It has multiple levels, multiple weapons, and is overall very fun to play. I could imagine this game coming out on XBLA and being one of the biggest hits on the system for a time, and I hope that actually happens because this is a great title."

This is at its base a pretty fun game - it plays pretty smoothly, especially once you get the knack of jump boosting, the weapons give you a good range of tactical/playstyle preference options, while not perfectly balanced they are all viable options with benefits and weaknesses. The game modes cover all the basics - Capture the Flag, base defense, team death match, free for all, but there is nothing really innovative here.

The arenas are graphically fairly diverse, but probably most of them are a bit too similar tactically, while others are a bad idea if you plan on having bots due to the limited routes and the poor AI pathing - if set to low levels you should be able beat up on the AI with its slow reactions and poor aim, if set hard the bots are pretty challenging as long as they don't get stuck on scenery, or failing to find a route to the target when playing CTF or base defense.

Generally I wouldn't buy this to play against the AI, and decent random online games are rare nowadays, but if a group of friends wanted a fun lightweight action game to play against each other regularly, this would be a decent option.

The game is pretty basic and generic, but it feels like a nice 16 bits era game ; it is worth it if you are into Smash Brothers kind of games and if you make sure you will have friends to play it with. Do get a bundle.

Really entertaining multiplayer sidescrolling gun blasting mayhem! Except that there is no one playing it. If you can get your friends to play it with you, it's a blast. Does have a bot support too, but beating bots gets really boring, really quick.

You choose a main weapon, secondary weapon and a grenade you start with. Then you rampage across the map, blasting your guns, throwing grenades, collecting power-ups and defeating the lower beings. The screenshots pretty much tell the idea. Different maps and different guns call for different play styles. Use of jumps and the limited time of jetpacks can make you a very hard to hit target and a fast predator, or you stand your ground and give all you've got with your minigun that doesn't work in the air.

This game is tedious and the community is non-existent. A good majority of the achievement descriptions are wrong as well. I feel like the people who designed the achievements in this game didn't really think anything through.

Tedious Trooper.
1/5

8/10. This game is pretty much awesome. BUT you need to have friends to play with. AND . . . and this is a big AND . . . you need to get some sort of VPN app like Evolve (it's free) to be able to play over the internet. Otherwise, you're likely to experience issues connecting to someone hosting the game.

When I first got this game, I only played it for like 10 mins against bots then spent like an hour trying to figure out how to get a multiplayer game going with my friends. We eventually gave up and the game sat untouched for a year. Then we discovered Evolve and tried Booster Trooper with it. And it finally WORKED! It was like finding a key to a golden chest and inside was this awesome multiplayer game!

Heyyo, a neat little sidescroller jetpack-based multiplayer shooter. It's pretty fun to play with bots since there's not a lot of players.

Booster Trooper is best described as a side scrolling shooter. It features both single-player (versus bots) and online multi-player. It has 23 maps, 11 weapons, and 4 game modes: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture The Flag, and Destroy The Beacon.

Unfortunately the best part of it was the multi-player which has long since died. It has 260 achievements, but it is a very long and mindnumbing grind whether you idle or not. Some of the achievements don't even unlock properly or have correct descriptions!

5/10

I found this game frustrating and not very stimulating. If you are a big fan of smash bros. and the like, you might really like this game.

A lot of fun to play with friends. Picked up 10 copies while it was on sale, and we had an absolute blast with it. Dead game or no, was fun when we had people to throw together and play with.

It's a fun little game to mess around in although nothing too notable.
