  • Summary: Rock Manager puts you in complete control of a rock band. Your task is simple; make them stars! Bribe the local radio station to get more airplay for your band, or buy up all your records to create increased demand. Use any means necessary to make the band climb the charts - anything goes in this strung-out world of swindle, lies and rock n' roll. [Dreamcatcher] Expand

  1. A surprisingly clever and enjoyable little game.
  2. It's something many of these sims's aren't: fun. [Nov 2002, p.116]
  3. 65
    Rock Manager does truly emulate the music industry: it's the equivalent of a CD where the first tracks are the best and the rest is all filler.
  4. Its simple, entertaining mix of humour and management is addictive in the short-term, and it'll make a perfect impulse buy for those looking for something a little bit different.
  5. 50
    A good idea with a lot of character that ultimately ends up being enjoyable for only a few minutes.
  6. With a total of four hours of gameplay (eight if you count the times technical failings made me repeat the first half), you don't get much for your money. [Oct 2002, p.110]
