  1. Rock Revolution is exactly what you’d expect from the music game genre, assuming the last three years never happened.
  2. 46
    Rock Revolution is a bad attempt at cashing in on the genre. It really does nothing to separate itself and actually siphons most of the enjoyment out of playing music games.
  3. If Rock Revolution came out two or three years ago, it might have been revolutionary, but in 2008, it's not even relevant. Uninspired presentation, a tiny tracklist that includes no master tracks, a complete lack of vocal support, uninteresting gameplay, and a barebones Career mode are just a few of the many ways in with Rock Revolution fails.
  4. Rock Revolution is inferior to its competition in every single possible way. If you absolutely have to try it, we urge you to think of it as a track pack of guitar-only songs for Rock Band or Guitar Hero and buy just the game (instead of the drums-included bundle).
  5. A music game so bad you genuinely feel pity for Konami. Just stick to Guitar Hero or Rock Band.
  6. Rock Revolution is ruined by its painful visual style, and is nearly unplayable on the higher difficulties. [June 2009, p.83]

    I have played the career mode all the way with a Guitar Hero guitar and I really missed the point with the low ratings since it al worked well enough and even the "cover" soundtrack was perfectly executed. A good alternative to RB & GH series if you catch it at low price. Expand

    Lets put it this way. Guitar Hero and Rockband had a baby and this is the crap that came out. I like the soundtrack but the gameplay and graphics are just horrible. But on the bright side you can buy it for 3 dollars so if you just want to buy something cheap this is for you. Expand

    This game lacks everything it sucks. And worse out of all the bad gameplay is that you have to buy the full 120$-140$ game it sucks don't buy it period. Expand
