Experience acclaimed combat and explosive third person action in this BAFTA-nominated tale of betrayal and revenge at the far reaches of the galaxy.
You are the last Genetic Infantryman (GI). Bred for war and betrayed by your superiors at the Quartz Zone massacre, you stalk the battlefield as a one-man squad, carrying the sentient biochips of three fallen soldiers in your rifle, pack and helmet.
Your mission? Fight your way across the chemical-blasted wastes of Nu-Earth – a planet ravaged by an endless apocalyptic war – in search of the Traitor General… and payback!
A classic returns with HD graphics, remodelled assets, dynamic lighting, enhanced geometry, new special effects and more. New features also include modern controls, extra difficulty settings and a revamped cover system.
Fight through 13 expansive missions in a diverse campaign penned by famed writer Gordon Rennie. Battle the insidious Nort regime across iconic locations from the Rogue Trooper comic including the Quartz Zone, Petrified Forest and Harpo’s Ferry.
Experience Rogue Trooper’s timeless blend of stealth-action gameplay, cover-based combat and epic set-pieces. Tackle objectives your way as you cut a swathe through Nort footsoldiers and vehicles with Lazookas, explosives, turrets and more.
Your biochips aren’t just there for conversation, they are your tactical edge! Gunnar turns your rifle into a sentry gun and boosts your accuracy under fire.

If you are old enough for that kind of nostalgia, and like the idea of a modern video game that feels kind of middle-aged, you should enjoy this. It really is kind of like a ten year old game with a lick of paint, which actually is refershing and fun. It isnt like a hipster 8 bit platformer, nor is it a modern shooter or an RPG with billions of confusing options and upgrades that demands you play it for 100 hours. It is somewhere inbetween. It’s for people who maybe are not obsessive gamers, for people who probably like games like sniper elite and who play all in all for maybe 3-4 hours a week.
If you are the sort of person who wants to bore on about AI nuance or skill tree options, look elsewhere. If you want a noisy pounding warzone, then sign up.
Of course it isnt really a work of tech art. The AI models are basic, the camera angles weird. The cut scenes a bit PQLR. Why they didnt give it the same xbox 360 controls as sniper elite and every other game is beyond me, that’s a major fail.
It runs well, and it’s fun. A major work it is not. A wild ride, yes for sure.
It is probably over priced. If you don’t really care about Rogue wait for the inevitable price drop to 9.99 or a sale.
If like me you remember Rogue when he was on Nu Earth in 2000AD, then crash into the crystal zone now.
I had a great time with this for sure, and revisting it many years later with better graphics is a nice treat.
However while it has more modern lighting, shadows, textures, and character models; the game is untouched in many aspects. While I can look past these issues from the original; it feels unacceptable for them to still be there.
-The sound design is still very hit or miss. Some sounds aged decently, while others still sound bad to this day.
-Gunplay and cover system can get frustrating
-Animation quality can sometimes look bad, and it still looks bad in many areas.
-The lip sync for some reason looks worse than the original version.
-Aiming speed on controller or mouse feels wrong. Never got used to it.
-The AI is still very stupid
-On rail sections were not very fun
-Flawed, but still very fun combat
-Teammates dialogue and their purpose in the world are great.
-Some of the art direction is still appealing
While Rogue Trooper has some very good ideas, they sadly did not take the opportunity to modernize the gameplay or add anything new. I feel this would have been a great chance to put in ideas and mechanics that they didn’t get to do back in 2006.
I’m not sure what the point of Redux is to be honest. It doesn’t do anything new or special to bring in a new audience. It doesn’t do anything for returning fans other than better graphics. Its nice to come back, but whats the lasting appeal? Its not like Rogue Trooper was a huge hit in the first place.
Regardless, If you can look past the old and new mixture, its a unique experience that very much welcomes an open mind.
+ Improved Models, Lightning, Textures, Details in Enviorment
+ Fixed the Scale of the HUD on higher resolutions
+ Online Coop
This is all there is to the improvements, now the negatives are:
– Cutscenes are still rendered in 25FPS
– Animations and Sounddesign was untouched completely which drags down all the other visual improvements
– Mechanics are mostly unchanged except for a few exceptions (You need to run against a wall to take cover instead of a button press which worked better in the original & when switching weapons, instead of confirming you selection with a buttonpress, you just need to wait a few seconds for the confirmed selection which feels cluncky)
– Difficulty was mostly unchaged except for the enemies being more accurate and doing more damage (at least that’s how I felt about it).
The biggest problem is that there are plenty of remastered versions of other games which do a better job then this attempt since most of them either try to change certain mechanics completely (Metro 2033 Redux is the best example for it by changing Item placements, removing Health Regen, having 2 different modes, limiting the amount of ammo you can carry and the amount of weapons, being able to customize your guns etc.)
This Redux version, however, feels more like an above average graphical mod for the original game.
This game is bad in so many ways.
Clunky controls, inaccurate grenade throws, janky animations, terrible cutscenes, bad voice acting and super-generic "story".
But there’s something that kept me playing. I liked the music, the setting and Rogue and his pals enough to play the whole game and i’m glad I did.
Bad or good, I enjoyed the game for what it is and I’m glad I gave it a chance.
If you’re looking for a simple linear 3rd person shooter with blue people, try this game. (On sale)
This game is far from perfect, laughable animations, cutscenes look goofy, AI is so dumb and nothing was really added to the experience apart from the choice of online… But… But all this just gives it charm, the same charm this game had when it first came out.
The story of this game is classic revenge and everything you do feels bada$$, the mechanics are fresh for a 3rd person shooter.
Gameplay is pretty basic as its a 3rd person shooter, but yet it feels new and deep. I love all the maps and missions! (well apart from the train mission)
The AI is bad… SO SO BAD! please sort it out as I played it on hard and the enemies would still just stand there as I shot them. The AI would throw grenades at themselves too which made my life easier. Is it game breaking? NOPE! completed it and loved the game.
Animations felt like Rogue went from being an amazing super soldier to a fumbling rookie… like I said it adds a certain charm to the game.
To everyone giving poor reviews I understand why but I also feel people have forgotten games are meant to be fun and enjoyed! yes, this game adds nothing new apart from HD textures and maybe 1 new added clip in the intro scene but it gives life to an old classic and introduces new people to the Rogue Trooper universe.
Loved it, if you are unsure to buy because of the reviews, give it a go! you can always get a refund if you don’t like it.
Failures: Everything else.
When you shoot from blind fire and aim down sights at the target it completely shoots straight foward and you loose control and you can’t even choose where you want him to aim at. Also, incredibly glitchy.
I wish I could have gave this a better rating.
I enjoyed this game, I really did. I enjoyed the short campaign and playing through the coop maps. It’s essentially the same enjoyable game as the original, with a few tweaks here and there and updated graphics. So why am I not recommending this game? This is pretty simple from my point of view – I simply don’t believe that the changes made justify the $25 price tag. There simply isn’t enough game here to fork out that kind of money and not feel cheated.
I bought this game knowing that it’d probably be a pretty barebones redux, as I have followed Rebellion Games for a long time and wanted to support them, but I honestly expected more from this product. If you’re going to go to the trouble of updating the graphics and gameplay, why not add some co-op maps or other content? As it stands, you get about seven hours of content, a pretty terrible deal for $25. I am also slightly flabbergasted that Rebellion chose to give this game, of all their games, this treatment. Sniper Elite One is just crying out for a redux, and the length of game and it’s quality as it stands would justify a similar cost. Bottom line, I would say avoid this if you have already played through the original, purchase it if it is cheap and you haven’t.
Seriously Rebellion, please give SE1 the redux treatment.
to be honest can’t see much difference or at least not enough for the price.
getting stuck to walls which is now automatic – is very annoying.
Save some money buy the original… the graphics look a little dated but the gameplay is much smoother … also I found that online multiplayer is dead – no one around … which is such a shame as this was a great game to play online. Redux has not revived this at all.
The game is really great stylistically, it has lots of variety in it and also a good but a bit general story. The areas you will visit during your playthrough are totally beliveable whitin the game with that I mean war torn city streets and and abondoned facilities look great. Also you can experience variety within the gameplay. You can choose your approaches wether you want to be sneaky or go in guns blazing and especially if you choose the latter the game will supply you with plenty of weapon attachments and upgrades making your approach as devestating as you wish. Further more during your playthrough you will come across certain upgrades which can let you put holograms, set up turrets and mines, etc. The list goes on.
Sadly the game has some flaws. The biggest most glaring one that I must mention is the movement. It’s good in general but when it comes to platforming and turning on the spot it feels pretty clumsy making certain errors on platforming deadly. One kind of smaller problem is that even with the great weapon variety there were tactics I couldnt really utilize later in the game but hopefully it just me.
Ultimately I would recommend checking out Rouge trooper. I you would like to experience a unique shooter both in terms of looks and gampeplay then you should definetly check it out 😀
