Video games are obsessed with the idea of making you the hero. You stroll into town, find out about some nearby baddie that has been terrorizing the local populace, swing into action, and set everything right. It’s a formula that has worked for decades, but sometimes you want something a little different. Sometimes you want to be that baddie who is terrorizing the poor villagers. Sometimes, you just want to cause some trouble. That is where Rack N Ruin comes in, placing you in the role of the bad guy who has come to wreak havoc on the innocent townspeople. The game takes inspiration from gaming greats, such as Zelda and various action games. Unfortunately it squanders these homages, and its interesting premise with poor design decisions that take a lot of the fun out of the experience.
