    "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.

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
I will never play this game again.

Like other games in the 2D shooter genre, Booster Trooper gives you control of a soldier that has the ability to move in pretty much any direction with the assistance of rocket pack. The backgrounds and map detail are incredibly gorgeous. The graphic feel like you are playing in a completely 3D environment. The multitude of ordinance animations and blood effects are done with a surprisingly high level of quality for each player and weapon. Almost every single piece of audio included with Booster Trooper seems to have been designed to match the games intensity and in most cases it might even charge it up. The handful of screams when someone is finished off give the characters a little personality and round out the audio set nicely. Even if you're a pro in this area of gaming, the number of weapons available to you would take at least a few dozen games to get a basic handle on the entire set. If you've been a long time fan of this game type, or even if you're new to the party and are simply looking to test the waters, Booster Trooper is a solid choice. Guns, jet-packs, and beautiful scenery all make for a wonderful day.

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!

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.

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.

Well, yeah... This is, like people before me has said, a shameless copy of the old classic "Soldat". And I would be fine with that, if Booster Trooper would be as good as Soldat. But nopes! Booster Trooper is about as fun as slowly tearing your own skin off with a dull spoon. 10/10 would not play again.

There's no lobby and looks like their forum is down too. Game is dead, its pretty much free but still not worth getting. Very limited game, it's bad when even a game as old as Soldat dominates you in everyway.

Booster Trooper is an alright arcade style shooter. It has bot support and without it it wouldn't be a game at all because multiplayer is dead. It has several game modes and maps plus a lot of achievements to earn but there's really not much to offer apart from that. After trying everything out (which wouldnt take more than a hour) you will most likely put it on the shelf and never play it again. I recommend avoiding this game unless you are an achievement ♥♥♥♥♥.

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.

Truly excellent if you enjoy games which can only be played in PvP but which have a playerbase of zero. This one is at least playable against bots, though it's also less fun than Starvoid, so it's kind of a wash.

Great game, simple and satisfying. The only real problem is that there's no one playing it, but hey... get a four pack at this price, throw in a few bots and you and your mates can have a blast.

Good fun!
