Pretty fun action packed twin-stick shooter game! I really enjoy shooting heavy machine guns, rockets and even flamethrower from armored off road vehicle or even a helicopter! The game art style and comic book dialog to it is just amazing! Not a bad top-down arcade lookin' shooter game.

Only thing is using keyboard and mouse at first is confusing, but when switching over to gamepad, or 360 control, for me it worked out fine! Well the game even says best to play on gamepad rather than keyboard. Which I think works for this kinda game type.

Get it while its on sale!

Great game, had played it a little on Xbox 360 but couldbn't help grabbing it again. The controls are exactly the same as the 360 version, and it works with Xbox One controllers too, so that's handy if you have one of those to hand and not a 360 pad or a Steam Controller.

The only downside I had is that it is a little short on first runthrough, and outside of Steam Achievements there isn't an awful lot to keep you coming back - sure, there's 7 playable characters, but all in all you can expect it to last approx. 4 hours in total on Normal, less if you don't pick up the Coldstrike DLC.

It's a very beautiful top-down racing shooter.Great story and amazing gameplay.But as any game he has it's pros and cons.
Pros:
-Gameplay
-Story
-Characters
-Enemies
-Weapons
-Skill tree
Cons:
-Timed objectives, you need to complete the main objective in 3 min.
-No checkpoints, if you die you are back on the main menu.
-Hardcore difficulty is hell.If you wish to get all the achievements you will cringe a bit on the last missions.
-Minor bugs, cars get stuck on structures while the enemy mows you down.
-Rockets have a hellish tracking.You need to spin are 2 or 3 times to avoid a rocket

Overall the game is great, you need to have a lot of patience and you should practice a lot until you manage to finsih the game the way you want it.My personal score is 8/10.

great game very little content unless its 75%off leave it alone, could do with a tone of new content, looks like another forgotten title, games should come with a warning, "we don't intend on doing a thing with this game after our initial cash grab".

TL;DR: Proceed to summary.

Gameplay:
I would describe this game as an arcady shoot'em up.
In a top-downish view you control a vehicle freely in a set area and shoot the hell out of your enemies while crashing through buildings. You obtain objectives to progress and occasionally sidequests. If you take too long, ignoring the main objective, the game starts a 3 minutes countdown. No need to become desperate as in my experience no mission takes more than 2 minutes.

Killed enemies may drop pick-ups. Those are health / big health / machine gun upgrade (maxed with 2nd pick-up) / secondary weapon: railgun (my prefered), rocket launcher, flame thrower / ammo for secondary weapons / key cards (mission related). Pick-ups grant bonus points if your health/ammo is full, your machine gun is maxed or you already possess the same secondary weapon.

Harder foes are introduced through progress in the campaign. You need different approaches to beat them. It ranges from kill before they fire to circling around them. It also depends on which character you have chosen as the special abilities differ much.

If you die you lose any picked up upgrade. If not ending up on the wheels, the game resets your car and you won't lose anything. If you get stuck somewhere or sink in water, you will respawn, again without loss. The game has no checkpoints. Losing the last life requires to rebegin that level, nonetheless any earned XP gets accounted.

There are 9 levels and 5 different characters/vehicles you may choose from (excluding DLC, see below). Every car has another special ability which can change the playstyle a lot. Points you earn while playing are also accounted as XP towards your chosen character. By leveling up you earn upgrade points and unlock additional perk slots. You can use those points to unlock perks from 3 single-pathed skill trees: Offensive, Defensive, Tactic. Off and Def are the same for all, only their order varies. Tactic perks boost your special ability. Reaching max level every perk is unlocked.

Difficulty settings:
  • Casual: Infinite lives, reduced score, no leveling, no upgrades, no damage streaks.
  • Normal: 5 lives.
  • Hardcore: 3 lives, increased score.
(Side note: I only played on hardcore.)
It took me the first 2-3 levels to get used to the game and achieving consistently good results. It still was a challenge though. The final level is a bit tedious because it is a very long path featuring many challenges (even a few jump&run elements) until you reach the final boss.

Controls:
You can view them in the main menu and while pausing the game. Unfortunately you can't remap them. Even though the game recommends a controller, I had no problems playing on keyboard & mouse. You move around with [W], [A], [S], [D]. Press [SHIFT] to drive faster in return you won't be able to fire. [CTRL] activates the handbrake so that your car won't roll by itself (down a ramp). Use [SPACE] for the special ability and [E] to switch secondary weapon (giving up the current one). Tap [TAB] to show a semi-hollow map which will be displayed in the center of your screen. It shows the locations of your current mission.

The mouse is used to move a reticle on your screen. It marks the spot you will shoot at. [Left Mouse Button] fires machineguns. [Right Mouse Button] fires secondary weapon. If you target something above (e.g. helicopter) or below (e.g. down a ramp) you, the game adapts automatically.

The default movement emulates a d-pad, giving 8 possible directions. I recommend to enable "Tank Steering" as it allows you to move freely. [W] being forwards, [S] backwards, [A] for steering left, [D] steering right. Keep in mind that "Tank Steering" won't apply to the helicopter which is no problem as you won't encounter many obstacles in the air.

Story:
The story is straightforward and foreseeable, nontheless it's good enough to attract your attention and wanting you to learn more. As the store page already states, the main plot line is "In Renegade Ops you must defeat Inferno, a madman intent on global domination." The characters you can choose from are part of the Renegades which are under general Bryant's command. They fight Inferno, his minions and maybe even more... The cutscenes are presented in comic style. When the story/mission goes on while playing the game displays a single panel at the top right, not disturbing your view. Subtitles are fit in the pictures and don't break the comic art style.

Graphics:
Available settings are resolutions, anti-aliasing (none, x2, x4) and v-sync (none, 60).
The game ran smooth on my machine and I never encountered lag or drops in framerate.
Settings: 1920x1080, AAx4, no v-sync.
Specs: Intel Core i7-4702MQ 2.2GHz, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M, 8 GB DDR3.

The game is nice to look at while cruising through the well designed areas. The levels vary and you will encounter different environments and textures. Water and most important fire effects are an eyecandy. The explosions are a blast and even though most entities are quite small, they are detailed.

Sound:
You won't really pay attention at the music except for the intro/menu/cutscenes as your concentration focuses on the action and the sound effects will predominate. As far as I was able to listen to it, it fitted well. Outside of fights it keeps subtle and turns more intense while fighting, adding the feeling of action. As everything is about firing and explosions the sound effects are a blast. The audio never annoyed me in except for one thing: Driving at max speed keeps looping the sound of the car, including shifting etc.

Multiplayer:
You won't find someone randomly. You need to organise sessions with Steam friends.
The leaderboards are occupied by cheaters (as almost everywhere). It seems that no dev cares about.

Replayability:
Each car needs a different playstyle and you might want to experience all of them, especially if you plan to reach max level with all. Additionally a few achievements aren't story/progress related. Finally there is the multiplayer mode when you have someone to play with.

Bugs & other issues:
My game crashed 3 times in total while playing. I encountered the infamous "AVA_Main has stopped working" error. In my case ut popped up randomly. I was able to complete the game and its achievements.

The special ability bar is located at the bottom left of your screen, way out of your focus. You will be hit if you want to check it.

DLCs:
Coldstrike Campaign:
The story continues and puts you in snowy, icy regions. It offers 3 levels, the last one being the most difficult. That final level features (again) a long road until you reach the boss. At 2 different spots you could call it unfair or cheap. 4 new achievements, 3 for completing the levels, 1 for easter egg.
Reinforcement Pack:
Features 2 new renegades/characters/vehicles.

Summary:
+Gameplay fun & enjoyable
+Casual-friendly difficulty with infinite lives
+Challenging & fair hardcore difficulty
+Accessible keyboard & mouse controls
+Story attracts attention
+Smooth graphics, little eye candy
+Fitting sounds are literally (a) blast/s.
+Replayability through levels, different cars & achievements
+Featuring Gordon Freeman, HL3 confirmed!

-Superficial & straightforward story
-Multiplayer is dead (friends needed)
-Leaderboards aren't cleansed from cheaters
-"AVA_Main has stopped working" error
-Car sound shifting infinitely

Good game.
16,99€ (Bundle with DLCs) is a good price.

7/10

Remember when you were a kid, you'd drag out all of your G.I. Joe's, set them up all over the living room, get out all the vehicles, man them up and get them set just right. Then, your dad would walk in, step on Junkyard in his bare feet, swear at 'all these god damn toys!' then mumble as he kicked the Viper copter under the coffee table and kicking over the hovercraft as exited down the hall.

Then you'd set everything back up, just as it was before and you were READY. The mission was READY. You had to infiltrate Cobra, take out the Cobra Commander, convince The Baroness to come home with you and be your girlfriend since you were being such a badass Joe, all while you were slamming your VAMP Jeep through the gears, manuevering like Michael Knight through the chaos and onslaught of Cobra's defense!

Your machine gun lit up the living room as it chewed up land scape, vehicles and Cobra Casulties left and right, leaving nothing but smoking ruins in it's wake!

That's what Renegade Ops is like. You drive a badass Jeep, you shoot ♥♥♥♥, ♥♥♥♥ blows up. You are a bonafide badass. It looks fantastic too, with big bright and beautiul explosions, driving through buildings just to see them collapse and blowing ♥♥♥♥ up, even if it doesn't give you points.

Too bad the Baroness isn't in this, cause she'd totally be woo'd into being your girlfriend after you got done being such kick ♥♥♥ Joe.

GO JOE!

Er...uh...WOLVER----GADES! RENEGADES!

Renegade Ops runs on a philosophy of being badass above all else!

It marries the movement and speed of an isometric racing game with the endless explosions of a twinstick shooter, firmly aware of its shallowness and playing it up to great effect. The over the top story of a team of ex-military personnel gone rogue when the government couldn't make the call to action is outrageous and thoroughly entertaining, existing as a conduit for one liners and to shuffle around a bunch of musclebound dudes and gals (major kudos for having as many awesome female characters as bros, and letting them keep their clothes on to boot) with the sole intention of blowing up anything everything in their path.

With how much is going on at any given time, be it the constant barrage of bullets, endless explosions, crumbling buildings and who knows what else, it's so overwhelmingly bombastic and fun that it's easy to overlook how repetitive the levels and enemies become by the end. This definitely has a lot to do with the fantastic coop, as although blowing crap up solo is all well and good, it's nothing like the raw insanity of grabbing a friend or two along for the ride. Sure, I might have seen that texture a good several hundred times already, and I swear I already blew that tank up, but there's no time to think about that because they're back again and I'm not nearly sick of watching them go boom yet!

The only thing standing in the way of you and some friends wreaking all sorts of mayhem is the obtrusive and entirely unnecessary life system, which gives you a finite number of lives to complete a mission and should you die you're out for good. I get that the developer was going for an arcade feel, but there was never an instance when this restriction ever added to the game, only ever serving as an disheartening moment of realization as my coop partner got knocked out for the rest of the mission and was left to watch from the sidelines as I attempted to clean things up.

Renegade Ops is at its core a pretty dumb game, and it knows this, but it's also an extremely enjoyable sort of stupidity that only ever asks that you come along for the ride, switch your mind off and hold down the trigger. That might have gotten grating after a few more hours, but the time I spent with Renegade Ops was nothing if not a continual series of ridiculous action movie moments that didn't care about being smart because it was having as much fun with itself as I was.

Renegade Ops is a unique piece, a truly rare gem.
Initially, skepticism is justified, because controlling a car and shoot requires exceptional maneuverability, but that's the beauty of the game: everything is blended to perfection. For the type of game, the physics of the vehicle is made very well and besides shoot must be careful to "drive" as well as possible in order to best avoid the enemy's shots.
Everything is rich in details, the attention to detail is obsessive and makes the game a delight for the eyes, especially if carried at maximum graphics options and full-hd.
But what makes the game great is the wonderful experience to play online in 4 co-op. You must try, because it is just great!
Recommended for sessions on the hard difficulty setting.
I really appreciated the character of Gordon (Half Life 2) and his antlions tricks.

To note that, unfortunately, the game does not have achievements for online play.

I would absolutely recommend it to everyone, because it really deserves to be in your library. Can give you many hours of fun! :))

Pretty fun IF YOU HAVE A CONTROLLER
Hilarious reviews
Majority of the bad reviews are from people who suck at the game or don't have a controller (Plus one guy who accidentally clicked No)
I haven't tried playing the game without the controller. because its sort of neccessary for the kind of movement you need in this game
Its called "Twin stick shooter" for a reason
Plus tons of fun watching the score number go up, and exploding your enemies with a Railgun.

This game is a surprising good time. While it took me hours to get accustommed to the controls, once I did I fount this game to be very challenging. I feel that it requires the help of a second player to beat the first level even on its Normal difficulty.

Hilarious, campy, explosive cheese-fest. The only twin-stick shoot-em-up that knows how to tell a campy story convincingly. Vehicle physics are hilarious, yet somehow amazingly solid. The gameplay is full of explosions and hilarity. The graphics are smooth and very pretty. Each of your characters slowly levels up to unlock better abilities.

And there's co-op. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Massive recommendation.
