Heard this is one of the worst music games ever made. Not even sure if that is worth even $4.99...depends on the flipping value.

Also, are you sure this is a Gamestop sale, not Gamecrazy?

I don't think there are any flips. The glory days of $17 at BBV are long gone.

This game sold very badly and no one really wants it. I was at a BB yesterday and they had about 20 of these for the 360 at $5. All of them were left over from the $10 sale in April they had. The game is worth $1 at amazon. Next time it may be beneficial if you just look up the answer to such a simple question on your own.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Haha, settle it down I was just asking for the benefit of everyone here including myself. Everyone who sees super cheap games thinks about flip value at some point or another.

I've never flipped a game, or thought about it. Just sayin'

And especially not for a game like this. Go in pretty much any Best Buy and there should be a box of them up front for $4.99. They can't give these away.

Sounds like this is a truely terrible game. From what I hear, there are much more enjoyable games for $.50 then this.

That was my first thought. They didn't have it new last I saw, but used was 4.99 (or 4.49).

It's really crappy of Gamestop to call it "The Deal" when this has been their regular price for a while now.

If I had to guess, they might just be calling it a deal to try and get some copies off their hand. There's plenty of people out there who see something either A) cheap B) the word deal C) both and then proceed to buy it without thinking.

The game was bad, but its very amusing if you know the story.
Rock revolution is a Konami rip off of rock band, which is a "rip" off of guitar hero, which was a rip off of the japanese game Guitar Freaks... made by Konami.
So basically Konami started the whole genre in Japan and did great. they said US market wouldnt like it. everyone else capitalized. they join in at the end like Tito and get no credit.

That part's not exactly accurate, considering that Harmonix were the masterminds of Guitar Hero in the first place.

If I had to say something positive about Rock Revo, it would be this:

I kinda liked the drumming part of the game (and the drum set). ~runs and hides~

After playing GH and RB the viewing aspect of the note travel in this game is unsettling. Some of the weakest covers I've ever heard also inhabit this game.

I got it on deep clearance at Target, then got the bundle with drums on deep clearance at Hastings and gave a friend the copy of the game with the warning that it was "crappy with the smell of ass mixed in". He collects games anyways, so its safe in his hands.
