Summary: Enjoyment is relative to expectation with this silly little title. Having actually planned on paying full price for this kitschy entry, as opposed to getting it free as a Playstation Plus member, I was already looking forward to playing Rock of Ages based solely on the promotional videos. Think Monty Python's terrific animated sequences meets... erm... I'd say maybe Katamari Damacy.
Summary: This is a fun little download! It's a whimsical and silly mash up of tower defense and a crazy bowling-like game. Basically, you and your opponent (either AI or a human opponent) are in a race to beat down the castle gate of the other with a large boulder that you control down variously twisting and narrow obstacle courses that have cliff drop-offs on either side. But you need several boulder runs to crash the gate and it takes time to build a new "rock" each time.
Summary: The weird game you question yourself for buying, but never are able to put down once you play it. That's how to describe Rock of Ages. Although it may seem odd, this game really is fun! The action of rolling your boulder down roads throughout many time periods, each complete with art styles suited for the eras they represent, is terrific. Almost as funny as the levels are fun, the opening scenes to each level are great and I enjoyed every one of them.
Summary: A disappointing game, all in all. It's not that it's absolutely awful, it's just that the gameplay is unvaried. The humour, art and style are top quality, though; which I think will become a mark of Ace Team's in the future. It's just there's very little to gain an edge and varied defensive configurations don't really give any defence at all. You just roll your boulder down the hill and hope you hit before the enemy does.
Summary: Super Monkey Ball meets Tower Defense. If that description doesn't interest you then it isn't the game for you. If it does, however, then you'll love Rock of Ages. A well presented, funny game that manages to blend two completely different genres together brilliantly. You'll be racing your boulder down the winding maze, avoiding the obstacles your opponent is building in real time, trying to smash into their castle gate at the bottom and returning to the strategic view...
Summary: Fun to play, and really funny too. The comedy of this game is amazing, especially considering the fact they probably only had to hire one or two voice actors for the entire game. The game is incredibly intense to play, as you face competent NPCs that actually stand a chance against you the player, a rare sight in games these days. The multiplayer is fun for a bit, but like the original game is tired after the first one or two goes at it.
Summary: The game kinda reminds me of chess, just with rolling boulders in it. Singleplayer is great for the hilarious cutscenes, and crazy boss fights, but multiplayer is where its really at. Sadly, the lobby is almost always empty, so it might be difficult to find anyone to play.
Summary: We all know that there is a lot of people complaining about the defense system, but they really need to know that the game have a completely nice defense system in the versus match and in works if you know where to place your units, because in case you place all of your defenses you'll fail instantly and that would become a boulder race to the gates.
Summary: I thought this game was unique and awesome. There's something about the combination of physics based object rolling/destruction, tactical defensive construction, and gibberish spewing old men (and sometimes women, zombies....goats... etc.) screaming like little girls, that just never gets old for me.
