REVIEW QUOTES:

"Rochard kind of looks like a Metroidvania or Bionic Commando-style game at first, but it’s really neither. Instead, its focus is primarily on puzzle solving, and in that it succeeds, with clever challenges that get progressively more difficult." - Ars Technica (Verdict: BUY)

"Rochard is a breath of fresh air for the PlayStation Network and the gaming industry as a whole. It is an original ideal filled with great puzzles and an entertaining sense of humor." - Gaming Nexus (A-)

"Enjoy Rochard as it was intended, and let it bend your mind a bit. You won’t be sorry you did." - IGN (8.5/10)
