Playing as Dick Marcinko – real life founder of SEAL Team Six and the US Navy’s most efficient killing machine (when controlled by any other then me) When a covert op behind the iron curtain leaves your team dead, it is up to you to finish the mission. Carve a path of destruction though North Korea and Soviet Russia using any means necessary.
I AM THE WRATHFUL GOD OF COMBAT – according to the back of the box but we will be taking on our first time, blind play through soon but we thought we’d do a little online research for a bit of brief history on the game…
Rogue Warrior is a 2009 first-person shooter video game developed by Rebellion Developments and published by Bethesda Softworks for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The game was released on November 26, 2009 in Australia, November 27 in Europe and on December 1 in North America.
In Rogue Warrior, the United States has sent in Richard Marcinko, a veteran U.S. Navy SEAL, on a mission into North Korea to disrupt ballistic missile launchers. The plot is not based on the autobiography by the game’s protagonist, Richard Marcinko. Marcinko is voiced by actor Mickey Rourke.
First announced in 2006, Rogue Warrior was originally being developed by Zombie Studios, and was set for a 2007 release. However, the game’s release was delayed after Bethesda stated that they were not satisfied with the direction Zombie Studios was taking the game. Bethesda quickly scrapped the project and brought in Rebellion Development to develop an entire new game from scratch. Rebellion, while retaining some major elements from Zombie’s rendition, has taken a whole new approach to the game and its focus.
Rogue Warrior was universally panned by critics, who cited it as one of the worst games of 2009 and of all time. Criticism of the game included its poor controls, multiple glitches, frequent foul language, rushed production, uninteresting gameplay, short length, very limited multiplayer and broken and exploited combat techniques.
Now I am not one to let reviews get in the way of a little game play and if anyone is going to criticise the damn thing, it’ll be me – after I have completed it so I will be adding this to my planned games for my gold members of MajorGmaer.co.uk.
