How cool a game is Renegade? Well, awesomely cool! If you needed proof, check out the video to 'The Invisible Man' by Queen (screenshot above). Not just any game could make it into such an awesome video - not only did old Freddy have an epic voice, he had an epic taste in computer games too. Nice choice, Mr M! Also in the cool stakes is our main man, Mr Renegade, wrapped in cool shades, leather waistcoat (swoon!) and with that six pack exposed (corr!) he is the epitome of cool. On top of all that he quite literally can kick some ass too.

It's hard to say anything negative about Renegade, with its great graphics and animation, soundtrack and the array of moves on hand, it really is one of the great fighters out there and I could go as far to say the best fighter on the Speccy. Ok, I will go that far - it is the best fighter on the Speccy. In my opinion anyway! Of course Target Renegade followed soon after and was heaped with praise because it also is one of the best fighters on the Speccy. Some say better than its' predecessor which I can see the argument for but if pushed, I would have to say Renegade just pips it.
So there we have it, another game added to my list of Speccy classics, and I hope you agree that it deserves to be there. This is truly one of the great Speccy games and any praise for it is thoroughly deserved.
Especially the reverse kicks to the groin.
Please feel free to comment as always. Is Renegade up there as one of the greats for you too? Any games you think should be included in the list? Let me know! Comment or tweet me @florinthedwarf
