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.

Most of the learning curve here is adapting to the vehicles. The vehicles handle like old school NES Nitro Offroad, the game plays like an old fashioned shoot em up, and the graphics are reminiscent of Command and Conquer. This is one of the few games in my library where I get random crashes. The first campaign may hit you like a prize fighter until you've conquered steering, but once you've got it this is a great game.

Renegade Ops is one of those fun, challenging, enjoyable isometric games to play that make you wonder why there are not more games such as this one. In essence, there is, but Renegade Ops does everything right in this genre that it's placed in a league of its own, on its own. It's so fun to play it demands a sequel. You can also play as Gordon driving that rust bucket dune buggy and summoning loyal aggresive ant lions that are so poorly scripted they get stuck behind a tree, a house, or a ramp. Then you will realize it was done on purpose and you're better off selecting one of the main Renegade Ops characters, because they're really bad@ss, and not lucky smart nerds. And Bryant is one funny character. Here's an example: Damsel in distress says, "We'll have to sneak in." Bryant chuckles, and replies, "Sneaking is not even in the manual. You know what to do, Renegades." BOOM! I replay that level just to hear that.

Renegade Ops gives a classic genre a face lift of epic proportions.
