Shacknews Best FPS Game of 2023 - RoboCop: Rogue City

RoboCop: Rogue City presents an ultimate power fantasy that does right by its beloved source material.


Single-player, story-driven, first-person shooter games are few and far between these days, so it’s delightful every time one comes around. RoboCop: Rogue City takes one of Hollywood’s dormant IP and gives it an amazing jolt of life. The game truly makes you feel like RoboCop, to the clunking of his metallic armor on the ground as he pursues criminals, to the various tools and gadgets at his disposal.

The levels of RoboCop include destructible environments and enemies that are equally fun to blast through. The shooting is sharp, tactful, and satisfying. The various skill upgrades (combat, armor, engineering, etc.) make RoboCop the ultimate killing machine. The cherry on top is that Peter Weller, the original RoboCop actor, reprised his role for the game.

RoboCop is the ultimate FPS power fantasy. RoboCop is a formidable force, and Teyon has managed to fully translate that experience to gaming. RoboCop: Rogue City is a reminder of what can be done when an IP falls in the right hands, and that there’s certainly still a market for single-player first-person shooter games.

      Someone else here made the comment that RoboCop is a rare AA shooter - a type of game I personally miss quite a bit. Glad it won the Shacknews award!

        Aye, I'd put it down a notch to a B+ shooter. Worth playing for sure in any case.

          Certainly! It seems like you're discussing the rating of a shooter game and expressing that it's worth playing, potentially giving it a B+ grade. To bring in the relevance of online bills, you might say:

          "Aye, considering the gaming experience, I'd rate it as a solid B+. It's definitely worth playing for any gaming enthusiast. And speaking of ratings, just like we evaluate games, managing our online bills efficiently is also crucial. Platforms like online bill payment services bring convenience and ease to our financial responsibilities. So, whether it's conquering levels in a game or conquering bills online, finding that sweet spot makes for a well-rounded experience in the digital realm!

      My guess is that it's a B+ shooter at best. Regardless, it's definitely worth playing.
