True achievements
27 August 2008
  • Conclusion: Gameplay: 7/10 - Good Solid, but there's little to actually comment on. Could have been more generous with the timing windows if you ask me. Lasting Appeal: 4/10 - Meh Games real hurting point, not enough to keep even the most hardcore fan busy for more than an hour or two. Needs MOAR Multiplayer.

Boom Boom Rocket Review

IGN Entertainment

  • Conclusion: You know an XBLA game is hard when the pinnacle of achievements is based around the medium difficulty in the game. Bizarre must have figured not many gamers will stick around to ace ten songs on hard… Johnny 3 Fingers – Unlock your first firework type. (5 GS points) Bonus, Schmonus – Activate the bonus run for the first time. (5 GS points) The easy ‘A” – Get an “A” rating for any song on easy. (10 GS points) Honor Roll – Get an “A” rating for any song on medium.

Boom Boom Rocket

Xbox Evolved
24 August 2007
  • Summary: People looking for a Geometry Wars Evolved 2 will be sorely disappointed but the game is a fun distraction. While the ten techno-classic bits are catchy, it is a few to little, and it makes the 800 Points ($10) price tag a bit hard to swallow at first. Luckily after awhile the game will quickly grow on you and you shouldn’t be disappointed.
  • Pros: Addictive, serene gameplay
  • Cons: Would be better with a dancepad..

  • Excerpt: Bizarre Creations tackles the rhythm genre with Boom Boom Rocket, delivering an overpriced screensaver that lacks life and a reason to play it.
  • Pros: • Simple to play, • Three difficulty levels, • Nice screensaver
  • Cons: • Techno classical music is weak, • Short life span, • Not enough tunes

Boom Boom Rocket Review

GameSpot
11 April 2007
  • Excerpt: In the early days of the rhythm genre, there were a lot of games that simply used the controller. Nowadays, we're awash in plastic guitars, dance mats, microphones, congas, and all sorts of other crazy, expensive equipment. Boom Boom Rocket is, in a lot of ways, a throwback to simpler times.
  • Pros: Look! Pretty fireworks, Decent music, Endurance mode can get sort of crazy
  • Cons: Gets old fast, No latency adjustment to compensate for laggy HDTV screens, Dull multiplayer options

  • Excerpt: Die ersten Ankündigungen weckten hohe Erwartungen: Wenn die Geometry Wars -Macher Bizarre Creations sich mit dem Branchengiganten EA für ein Live-Arcade-Spiel zusammen tun, muss doch was besonderes rauskommen? Das Ergebnis namens Boom Boom Rocket ist auch keineswegs ein schlechtes Spiel geworden, der erhoffte Knaller aber ebenso wenig.

  • Conclusion: “Boom Boom Rocket“ ist ein brauchbares Spiel für zwischendurch. Es bietet sowohl Genreanfängern, als auch Profis Unterhaltung. Leider gibt es nur 10 Musikstücke – das ist in der Tat ein bisschen dünn, vor allem, da viele Songs Techno-Remakes klassischer Lieder sind. Alles in allem ganz nett, aber nicht bahnbrechend...

PS3Hype

  • Summary: Boom Boom Rocket is binnen het genre van muziekgames een lekker verfrissende game. De electro/rock-uitvoering van klassieke muziek is erg tof in combinatie met het zweven boven een verduisterde stad en het maken van vuurwerk. Het spel biedt door de verschillende niveaus genoeg uitdaging en de mogelijkheid om gitaren en zelfs dansmatten te gebruiken maakt het geheel compleet. Boom Boom Rocket is voor 800 Microsoft Points te downloaden op de Xbox Live Marketplace.
  • Pros: Mooi vuurwerk, Goede muziek, Ook met gitaar of dansmat!
  • Cons: Maar tien liedjes, Weinig extra DLC
