What’s cool? Robocop might be a cyborg capable of taking down untold number of criminals, but he still needs to take cover from fire. So unlike the previous incarnation of Robocop, players of the new Chillingo title will need to take cover behind walls and cars, firing away at crooks as they move in the open while also dodging their return fire. The game sports some impressive graphics and physics, and part of your strategy will include blasting enemies' cover in order to expose them. You'll also need to save hostages, send drones into battle and fight big bosses like ED-209, and as you progress through the game, you'll be able to upgrade and customize Robocop's gear to make him more effective.

Who’s it for? Fans of the Robocop film, as well as anyone who likes high-quality third-person shooter action, should check out this one.
