Our Verdict

RoboCop: Rogue City has its problems, but good use of Unreal Engine 5 and a clear love for the licence overshadows any technical flaws. Teyon's RoboCop is pure fan service, and is more fun for it.

For

Nostalgia can be a great lever, and it’s one RoboCop: Rogue City pulls at every given opportunity. Developer Teyon doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to cutting edge video games; its reputation for making rough games exists for a reason, past titles, such as Terminator: Resistance, have been plagued by technical issues.
