CBVGR: Rock Revolution

Video Review:

Script: Welcome to the Clearance Bin Video Game Review by Organized Remains. Are you ready to ROCK!? Rock Revolution is the game and $5 is the price. You can find it for the 360 or the PS3.

Rock Revolution is a game were you have instruments, and you play each music note accordingly (Like Rock Band or Guitar Hero). Lets start the review positively by saying, thank Kermit the Frog that they let you use Rock Band or Guitar Hero instrument controllers. If I had to buy this... drum set? I wouldn't know what to do with it.

Something else that's positive, is the set-list. People will complain about the songs not being actually from the band, but just covers. I'm alright with this, and it didn't bother me to much. The set list includes a good amount of songs I like, so a big plus to that. The set-list menu however needs some work. I don't even see a band name! It just says the song name!

Here comes the negative: The game takes time to get use to. The hardest part is the notes flying from the top of the screen to the bottom. After I played a song, the whole floor and TV were appearing to be moving up. Though you can experience this feeling in Guitar Hero and Rock Band, this is a lot worse when it's going top to bottom. I don't remember Dance Dance Revolution doing this! But back to Rock Revolution. After playing a couple of songs I was starting to feel really dizzy and had to take a break. Why not have the notes come from the background like the other games. Was that method copyrighted?

I don't usually like comparing games to others, but this leaves me no choice. Rock Band and Guitar Hero are great! How did they not look at these games and get some good pointers? These music games are great multi-players, and no one is going to want to play Rock Revolution if they're all getting sick!

The recording studio part of the game is a nice addition though. I'm not that great at it, but I'm sure if you played around with it enough, you could create something good. While it's probably not the reason to play this game, it doesn't hurt to have it.

Final Say: I can't recommend it. There's probably some people out there that love this game but I'm not one of them. When some of the Rock Band and Guitar Hero games are the same price, how can I recommend this? I don't wanna bash the game over the head until the brains are leaking to the floor, so just get Rock Band or Guitar Hero. For the people that already own these two games... get some downloadable songs.
