That may not be something you see at the opening of many game reviews, but it is how I felt the second I pressed start on Recoil’s PSN-exclusive game, Rochard. Something about the opening cinematic and song really hooked me right off the bat, and then the main character opened his mouth and it hit me.
This guy isn’t a super soldier. He isn’t a space marine. He can’t use magic or fight dragons. No, this guy is an overweight, hard working, run of the mill man. He is normal, like me. Right from the beginning, I had a feeling Rochard was going to be something good. It turned out to be a game I just didn’t want to put down.
