  • Summary: With the guitar as your weapon of choice you'll journey through terrifying graveyards and sewers, battle the undead to protect your trailer park home, and even rock in front of the camera as you do battle at the television station. Use the power of rock to unleash a sonic blast on a group of flesh eaters, raise the guitar to the heavens to power a protective shield, or just strum the hard and heavy tunes as you riff your way through the infected masses to the sound of a rocking soundtrack. The fate of the world, as well as rock and roll itself, is in your hands. Expand

    The multiplayer mode also feels sort of tacked on; you and a friend can head out and take on the shuffling hordes, but it's basically the same experience.

    The novelty factor wears off quickly, even with a two-player mode.

    Rock of the Dead isn't bad; it's just flat. The music isn't good, the visuals aren't good, and the gameplay isn't all that interesting.

    Rock of the Dead does little to rejuvenate the struggling music game genre. Rock of the Dead is an interesting idea, but unfortunately the execution falls flat. If you want a new interesting take on the genre and want to learn a real instrument, you're money is better spent on Rock Band 3.

    There's a great idea lurking around in Rock Of The Dead's dumb-fun concept, but instead the game winds up being dumb even when it isn't trying to be.

    This game does not in fact rock, but succeeds in doing quite the opposite.
  7. This stinks worse than week-old zombie balls. [Feb 2011, p.103]
