You’ll have to forgive Bootwack’s long absence. I’ve been constantly writing this review for the last 2 months without breaks, so it’s not that we haven’t been hard at work, it’s just that these things take time. Now sit back, relax and read this review of the most incredible game I’ve ever played. I’m serious.
Well, It’s kind of hard to say anything about this game that hasn’t already been said. This game is a classic in every single way. In fact, I’d go as far to say that this game is the only game to perfectly fit the definition of the word classic. I have no clue where to begin, this game has so much content it makes my head spin. We’ll start with the story.
The game begins with a cut scene that sets things up absolutely perfectly. You see some very beautiful rats. Truly gods creation, from suicide bomber rat, to batter rat, but we’ll get more into characters later. And these rats have a beef with the mean old cat. You don’t necessarily learn what happens that makes the cat the Rat’s target. But the cat is no victim. A quick look into the cats eyes will show fear. Fear of being caught and killed, but fear stems from guilt. The cat must be guilty, which makes me think that the rats are more than justified. The rats have to go through hell and back but they finally kill the cat once and for all.
Though the game does not end on a cliffhanger, you must still ask some unanswered questions. For example, we never did find out the backstory of the cat. I believe the developers did this on purpose. They would not have not included it if it didn’t mean something. Something’s fishy about that cat. I just know it.
This game looks absolutely incredible. It’s so so hard to believe it came out in 2007 when it is still probably the best looking game ever made. Even my custom graphics cards in 4 way SLI have trouble sometimes running the game at a constant 60 fps. This is not the games fault however. It’s just simply too beautiful to run without a serious rig. There isn’t too much to say, I’m not doing it any Justice.
The game boasts a completely amazing physics engine. It is by far the most realistic physics engine I’ve ever encountered. There are no random instances of unrealistic occurrences. Everything is exactly how it would be in real life. Could you imagine a real life Bad Rats? I’m eternally depressed it will never happen. I’d really be living the High Life.
The game has a wide variety of rat characters. From Suicide Bomber rat, to Batter Rat, to Forklift Rat, to Stunt rat, To Fat rat, to Balloon Rat. The list goes on and on. The characters department is by far the best of any game I’ve ever played.
By far the most incredible game of all time, I can’t believe I was lucky enough to be graced with the gift of experiencing this masterpiece. It’s the only game I care about, truly. It’s why me and Koveryl started Bootwack. To bring attention to the industry that gave us this Magnum Opus. If I had to trade my or anyone else’s existence for this game, I would gladly do so. This game is more incredible than anyone in the human race combined, except for the development team of this game. Words can simply not describe what I feel about this game. Considering it’s $1 on Steam and has the best gameplay, story, graphics, and characters of any game I’ve ever played, I don’t know why you wouldn’t give it a chance. In fact, let me get something straight…
ANYONE WHO DOES NOT LOVE BAD RATS SHOULD BE EXECUTED.
I’m sorry. But it’s true. As far as games go, Bad Rats takes the cake.
