Game Review

Rocket Ranger is a cinematic action game, with some strategy elements, created by Cinemaware originally for the Amiga and released in 1988. It was later ported to Apple IIgs, Atari ST, Commodore 64, MS-DOS, and other platforms.

Set during the World War 2, but in an alternate reality where the Nazis have a base on the moon, Rocket Ranger represents Cinemaware at its best: amazing graphics, fantastic cut scenes, digitized voices, sound effects, accurate animations, great "b-movie" plot, and atmosphere. The lucky players that had an Amiga at that time, and played Rocket Ranger, had the impression of watching a movie indeed.

True, more modern reviewers criticized some of these titles for the gameplay, and Rocket Ranger has been accused of being too difficult. But sometimes the presentation is everything, and playing this game is a joy for the eyes. Cinemaware was the best of the best for Amiga users at the end of the '80s, and Rocket Ranger is one of the titles that made history; probably their second most popular game after It Came From The Desert.

What else can you say: just play it!
