Spider-Man, The Lord of the Rings, and Avatar aren't the only big-name properties getting new games this autumn. RoboCop is back with RoboCop: Rogue City, and it sounds like diehard fans of both the cyberpunk action franchise and honest AA games will love this one despite its blander parts.

The reviews for RoboCop: Rogue City, from Teyon (Terminator: Resistance), have just dropped, and they're mixed/average (almost generally positive) so far. This might not sound like good news, but Teyon's Terminator game eventually fixed many of its issues and gained a cult following, with many fans claiming it's by and large the most faithful and fun Terminator game ever made. The RoboCop: Rogue City demo released a while back left most gamers satisfied with its well-calculated throwback to simpler times and a shiny representation of the worn-down and satirical setting the movies are known for.

Below you'll find a list with all the reviews and scores we've hunted down:

RoboCop: Rogue City features an original storyline based on the RoboCop movies, with Peter Weller reprising his role as the titular character. It will launch for PlayStation 5, PC (Windows), and Xbox Series X/S on November 2, 2023.

The gameplay is that of a first-person shooter with open-world elements set in Detroit as depicted in the crime-ridden dystopia of the movies. The player must "clear the city of criminals, conduct investigations," and even "give out parking tickets." The story is set in between RoboCop 2 and RoboCop 3. Anne Lewis, RoboCop's police partner from the movies, accompanies the player in some sections. Armed with RoboCop's Auto 9 gun and other weapons taken from the criminals, the player can follow both the main storyline and side missions, also interacting with citizens, acquiring and developing new abilities, and even affecting the outcome of the story with decision-making and light RPG elements.
