    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.

    Ace team's sophomore effort comes with their trademark weirdness references from mystery science theater 3k to Greek mythology abound. TheAce team's sophomore effort comes with their trademark weirdness references from mystery science theater 3k to Greek mythology abound. The game itself is addictive, but I haven't finished it yet. In my first play through it was stellar though. I really got into it and enjoyed the defensive element and the animals, my only gripe is that it seems overly repetive. The defenses do a good job of slowing opponents down in one level I placed catapults in such a way that my opponent ended up stuck on an island while I slammed their citadel. If you use some thought the planning parts can be great the a.I. Isn't hard to trick either. For eight usd this is a really great game and for fans of Zeno clash a must by. Ace team have made perversions out of the unreal engine and truly pushed a game out there is a little shy of epic, but provides comedy in droves. Try it, you might just like it. Expand

    Fun for a few hours of casual gameplay.

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
