"Retro City Rampage is a difficult game to describe. Only an hour into the top-down shooter, players will be running over pedestrians on the streets of Theftropolis, jumping through pipes like Mario and working with an 8-bit version of Solid Snake. If that’s too many video games rolled into one, there’s more. Retro City Rampage is not just an ode to classic games. Players will also be traveling through time in the DeLorean a la Marty McFly and in a phone booth like Bill and Ted. Excellent."
