    Rock of Ages has faults - it's samey and repetitive in long-play sessions, for example, and if the trailers don't tickle you then there's little chance the full game will impress. However, considering the low price and artistic spark that lies at the heart of the game, Rock of Ages becomes a difficult game to turn down, even if the mechanical side of the experience doesn't quite rival the creative side, and there are occasional glitches with the physics of enemy AI.

    Funny, stylish and very entertaining game that built its gameplay on simple combination of two well-known gaming concepts and it's done in a truly remarkable way.

    Remains fun despite its problems, and makes for some great local competitive play.

    Its creative and quirky nature is let down by mechanics that don't feel strongly realised, Rock of Ages is still good for the occasional roll. [Christmas 2011, p.67]

    It's worth to take a look at this title and its unique art direction. Unfortunately it quickly becomes clear that Rock of Ages' rules are too simple to provide a deep enough gameplay. [October, p.59]

    Rock of Ages combines strategy and dexterity in an original and wacky game. The solo campaign is a little quick and easy to overcome and the multiplayer clearly lacks some options as well as players. But despite this, you'll get value for its price, so just buy it: the more do it, the less this last shortcoming will fade.

    The story was extremely fun and with an amazing artwork, the cut scenes are hilarious and the historical events were chosen correctly.

    ACE team managed to create a game completely unique. Same as Zeno Clash. If they are making another one, i would probably pre ordered it instantly.

    10/10 because it was bloody hilarious and the multiplayer is so intense in ways that i can't even describe.

    Totally worth the 9.99 dollars on Steam.

ControlsA true gem, I was so surprised to witness how much fun this game is! It is exciting, and it makes you laugh when you don't expect. Controls remind me of Katamari games, which are absent on the PC platform. So I highly recommend, it's so good that it will make you question why you pay $60 for a game, where you can have so much fun for so little money! Expand

Do I need to say more?
    Single player mode is good but also quite easy. Start playing this with some friends of yours to unlock endless fun.

The single player was lacking a bit, with the AI never really learning your strategy so there is really never a large difficulty curve. It also gets very repetitive about half way through, so the biggest draw is playing it with a friend for me. The online is fun, with multiple game types. Expand

You drive aI played it 54 minutes before I uninstalled from my system. Seems like it could've been fun, but I'm having trouble finding it. You drive a ball down a hill trying to destroy the opponent's gates. There are obstacles to avoid, things to destroy along the way. You place obstacles to try to thwart the person attacking you. I never could beat the first "real" level after the tutorial and was quickly losing interest in trying. I found it frustrating not understanding what I needed to do, and rolling down the hill repeatedly gets old fast. So bottom line: I found no fun. I was bad at the game and lost patience. Whatever the reason, my backlog is too large to fuss with an uncompelling title. Sorry - just didn't like it. Expand
