Rocket Riot is a very stylized, 3D rendered, 2D side view shooter that is fast, furious, doesn't take itself too seriously and is just simply a hell of a lot of fun to play. Rocket Riot is a casual game that pretty much anyone can pick up and enjoy. The action is fast paced and exciting and there is a lot of content available for 800 MS points. Hardcore gamers will love the challenge of the single player campaign and more casual players will love the multiplayer modes and earlier campaign levels. Rocket spamming has never been more fun!"
