  • Awesome bug fighting action combined with a pretty sweet plot!

    9.5
    I watched this when I was grade 3, and absolutely fell in love with it. Each campaign has its own merits and brings out new aspects of the story and plot. I just rewatched this series again, 10years later, and am still loving it. All the characters are very engaging and believable (imo), I only wish they were able to complete the last 4 homefront campaign episodes. What a damn shame they did not. Games should be developed around the Starship Troopers world (that are not complete crap). I will definitely be buying the DVD very soon. Have a nice day!moreless
  • fighting aliens. yahooo!

    This show definitely did not deserve being cancelled. The episodes are available on DVD in "campaigns" episodes grouped together. This is how I watched it. From what I can watch of the show; it is original and faithful to the original novel. The voice acting is well done and though the show is done entirely in CGI; the CGI is definitely passable. The story lines are fun and watchable. The hero Johnny Rico is shown in the best light, doing heroic feats and making an idiot out of himself in front of Carmen; Rico's secret crush. I can view this many time without it going tediously predictive.moreless
  • The greatest CGI show ever, with guns, bugs, and total war!

    9.0
    Roughneck:The Starship Troopers Chronicles is based off of the controversial book Starship Troopers, which has a great story and interesting concept. The show uses most of the book's themes and adds it's own perspective, not to mention a very cool collection of bugs from the Arachnid army.

    The CGI in Roughnecks is just great, which adds to theme of Sci-Fi to the show. The action is well done and the missions actually seem like they would have to be done, from search and rescues to search and destroy.

    The only bad thing about Roughnecks is that it ended on a bad cliffhanger, and that the company ran out of funds to produce the show.

    If you are looking for a CGI or Sci-Fi show, I stronglt recommend Roughnecks:The Starship Troopers Chronicles.moreless
  • Yea

    8.5
    this show is about a squad of troopers who are facing the first interstellar war against giant bugs who think for then selves. the main character is johnny rico who is the best Trooper on the force and he is the go to guy when needed. Even though this show ended without a real ending this is a show to watch if you are into sci-fi or just want something different to watch. i give it an 8.5 because it is a good show but doesnt end well and i hope they end it some day. watch this series and judge it for your self.moreless
  • A GREAT SHOW.

    Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles is a great cartoon. Where Starship Troopers was bad and failed, Roughnecks succeeds. The animation was great very realistic. The story was very good, it made you feel the effects of war. The characters were great, each of them having their moments, not all of them surviving. The show ended to soon, but went on long enough to tell most of the stories that needed to be told. I'm running out of things to say now. Let's see what else I can talk about before I go. I don't think there's anything else except this is a great show.moreless
