RoboCop 3 is the official videogame based on the third chapter of the Robocop movie saga, where the protagonist is a cyborg-policeman. This version of the game was created by Digital Image Design for the Amiga, Atari ST, and MS-DOS and was released in 1992.
RoboCop 3 was a quite different game compared to the previous 2 titles. The others were side-scrolling run and gun platformers/shooters, but for this release, Digital Image Design decided to use the 3D engine they developed for F29 Retaliator. So RoboCop 3 is a 3D polygon graphics game. The development started in September 1990 and required more than one year. The title was completed at the end of 1991, even before the movie was out. But considering that the game creators didn't have access to exclusive movie info and had to work with some sketches and rumors, the game didn't contain any spoiler.
RoboCop 3 can be played in arcade mode, where you are free to choose any of the 5 macro-levels, or in Movie Adventure mode. In the last case, the five scenarios are connected by a plot, and you must follow the proper order. Enemies and missions are also different. During the different sequences, you will have to save hostages, fly with the jetpack, drive your car to chase the criminals, and more. There are both hand-to-hand combat and shooting sequences, where you will have to avoid civilians.
The reviewers highly appreciated the Atari and Amiga versions. The 3G polygon graphics are simple but very effective, animations are smooth, and following the movie sequences is very rewarding. Many consider this game the best movie-to-game conversion ever created. Especially if you are a fan of the movie, you can't miss it.
