Streets of Rogue Review: A Delightful, Ultra-Violent Sandbox

There was a time when Grand Theft Auto wasn’t a sprawling landscape for you to deal out unhinged destruction, but rather a top-down, more-confined-yet-still-open-ended sandbox… for you to deal out unhinged destruction. Those were simpler times — not necessarily better than what we have now because the current GTA playground is a sheer joy to visit, but great in their own right. Streets of Rogue is almost like a mix of both worlds with a bunch of other stuff thrown in to really dial up the insanity.

It’s so much fun!


The world of Streets of Rogue is pixelated, colorful, and cute. I’m serious. Those thugs, mobsters, drug dealers, and zombies are super adorable. The whole game has this quirky look to it, and its ultra-violence is stylistically contrasted by the intense visual charm.

The music is also good, with synth-y awesomeness thumping away in each of the game’s stages. You’ll hear these songs a lot, so it’s great that they’re all pretty catchy.

I’ll be the first to admit that the tutorial in Streets of Rogue made me groan. But once I was given free reign, I was all too excited to visit and revisit the game. Even after having spent so much time with it already, I’m still itching to return to it in my free time. Whether you’re playing in short bursts or making a day of it, Streets of Rogue is one of the most addictive and entertaining action games of the year, either solo or with a group of buddies.

Score: 8.5 out of 10

Streets Of Rogue, As Told By Steam Reviews

Imagine you're part of the resistance, but the resistance has really low standards so they'll take anyone. Like a gorilla that wants to spawn an army of smaller gorillas, or a doctor that just goes around cholorforming the public. That's kind of what Streets of Rogue is like.

Nathan first covered the game a couple of years ago when the top-down action-RPG — which is a bit GTA, a bit of Monaco, and a bit of Nuclear Throne's procedurally generated randomness — first hit Steam. It had a cracking tutorial and was plenty of fun then, but the game's only come out of early access as of last week.

Streets of Rogue - Released

by Hiddenx, 08:02

The roguelike Streets of Rogue is now available on Steam:

Streets of Rogue

Streets of Rogue is a rogue-lite about player choice, freedom, and anarchic fun. The game takes inspiration from fast-paced top-down rogue-lites like Binding of Isaac and Nuclear Throne, and adds free-form, experimentation-driven, emergent gameplay elements of RPGs like Deus Ex.


Rather than taking place in a dungeon, the game is set in a functioning, procedurally generated city, where complex AI informs denizens from all walks of life, who are just trying to get by in their daily activities.

In order to progress, the player will need to accomplish specific mission goals in any way they see fit through use of their special character traits, items, and the environment.

  • Will you play as a soldier who shoots first and asks questions later?
  • A stealthy doctor who uses chloroform and tranquilizer darts to silently take down the opposition?
  • A genial bartender who can talk his way past the most intimidating of guards?
  • Or how about a hyper-intelligent gorilla, rescuing other caged gorillas to form a small mobilized gorilla army?
