Renegade III: The Final Chapter is a scrolling beat'em up computer game released on the Amstrad CPC, Commodore 64, MSX and ZX Spectrum systems in 1989 by Ocean Software under their "Imagine" label. The game is a sequel to Target: Renegade which itself is a sequel to the arcade game Renegade.
Unlike the first two games, Renegade III follows the character known only as "Renegade" as he travels through time to rescue his captured girlfriend. It also dropped the two-player mode found in the previous title.
Though the game was highly praised by critics, receiving high scores in several prominent gaming publications such as a 91% score being awarded by Crash, and 84% in C+VG, it was derided by fans who criticised the game's storyline, lack of deep gameplay, glitches, poor physics and lack of a two-player option.
This is demonstrated in a video created by Internet comedian Stuart Ashen, in which he reviews the ZX Spectrum version and repeatedly criticises the game, whilst praising the Spectrum versions of the first two games. The video also includes fellow YouTube user and ex-television presenter Larry Bundy Jr reviewing the Amstrad CPC version and video game journalist Jon Blyth reviewing the Commodore 64 version of the game, both criticising the game as well.
The Spanish magazine Microhobby valued the game with the following scores: Originality: 30% Graphics: 80% Motion: 80% Sound: 80% Difficulty: 100% Addiction: 80%
