  • Summary: Do you want to be a Rock Star? Then this new game from the makers of Kudos and Democracy is just for you... The game is part RPG, part life-sim, part Tycoon game. You are a struggling rock singer who puts together their own band, and tries to achieve fame and fortune, from humble beginnings as a starving garage-band. Pick your band-members, choose the band name, write the songs...play the gigs...Rock Legend is a turn-based game, in some ways similar to the gameplay of Kudos. Each turn of the game represents a single day, and it's up to you to decide how the band spends their time. Some of the activities you will need to spend time on include songwriting, rehearsals, auditions, publicity events, practicing individual instruments, and of course, recording your latest album. The game has sophisticated AI that controls your band members (you are the singer, they are your backing band) and decides how motivated, energetic and happy they are. If you work the band too hard, arrange poorly-attended gigs, and don't provide your band with the lifestyle they expect, you will have resignations on your hands. Running a successful band is part financial management, part people-management, and part creative struggle. Would you survive the music business? [Positech] Expand

  1. Fun while it lasts, but inevitably, nowhere near as funky as the life your character is supposed to be leading. [Oct 2007, p.65]
  2. It's only really good for two or three novelty-endowed playthroughs. [Aug 2007, p.72]
  3. Fresh, but slightly sanitised, Rock Legend isn't a game you're going to play intensively for months. However, note the price (GBP 12.50), and purchase anticipating two or three weeks of quirky, leather-trousered amusement, and you shouldn't be disappointed.

    Well, like Kudos, it's too simple and short to be compared to other games of the genre. This game is actually better than the original Kudos, even if it fails in the same aspects. Expand
