Rochard reviews, the second wave!

Hooray people! Reviews of Rochard keep coming and the average opinion about the game is very, VERY good. But before going into that, a quick recap of what is keeping us busy, sales aside.

First things first: the Part 1 of the Making Of Rochard is now available here. The video focuses on Rochard‘s music: in the full glory of HD, you will have the privilege to see both Markus “Captain” Kaarlonen from Poets of the Fall and Creative Director Burt Kane from Recoil Games discussing how all those fine tunes ended up being the soundtrack for the adventures of a bunch of very special astro-miners.

Also, we threw our first competition on Rochard’s Facebook page. What’s the prize, you ask? A chance to win a copy of Rochard‘s soundtrack signed both by POTF and Recoil’s Team! The competition just ended, and we will announce the winners as soon as we manage to go through the hundreds of comments we got for it.


And now, ladies and gentlemen, let’s hear what the world think of our little baby. Ready? Set? Go!

This game is a unique experience, something that builds on the past of platforming adventure while pulling in aspects from some of the best shooters, and injecting it all with fun and humor. It’s a perfect game, and an absolute must-own for any PlayStation 3 owner.

Newsrama  [10/10]

Rochard is a great game, and it’s made for multiple playthroughs.

BC Gaming [5/5] 

Seriously though, Rochard is a great game that is obviously well loved by the development team. A high level of care and polish went into making Rochard a real PSN gem.

Vgblogger – Buy it!

When you look past all of the bells and whistles of a game, and just look just at its core gameplay, some titles lose their luster, but “Rochard” manages to hold its own. It’s a hard time of the year for PSN games since they need to share the spotlight with so many other bigger name game, but try not to overlook “Rochard.” It will offer you hours worth of challenging puzzles, and space police to shoot in the face. Really, it’s the best of both worlds.


The game’s production values are well above most ten-dollar games.

CheepArseGamer – Very good!

Rochard was built for fun and perfect for when you just want to pick up a game and play.

GamingExaminer – 8.5/10

Rochard is not a typical downloadable PSN title. It is of a higher pedigree in the world of digital distribution – just a step under retail releases.

Playtribune – 8.5/10

Honestly, this just might be one of the best downloadable games of the year.
