I've said it before, and I'll say it again

This game doesn't look to be worth even 5 bucks in my opinion.

Anything that improves System Of A Down songs is totally worth it, what are you talking about??

I think the joke that they'd have to pay you to play/own this game has been played out already.


So true.
I absolutely agree. It's getting so old!

It's like everyone has to get their own say.

I bought this game for $10, and got about 10 minutes of play time out of it. It really isn't very good, especially if you've played RB or GH.

This isn't even a good derivative game, as the awful covers kill any chance of it being worth playing alone.

Hmm ... footlong sandwich or Rock Revolution. Both may leave a bad taste in my mouth, but I'll probably be done with both in about 10 minutes, so it's a toss up.

Don't buy it. I got it for $10 at Best Buy and regret it. It has songs like Sk8er Boi and shit from Good Charlotte.

Terrible, terrible game.

$5 is the highest price anyone should pay for this. This is one of the only games that made me physically ill. I've never had so much eye pain from looking at this after playing Rock Band and Guitar Hero so much.

You'll get 40 or so songs. A grand total of 2 are master tracks. No vocal mode either. If you've bought all 800+ Rock Band DLC, all the Guitar Hero discs and are just dying for more songs, $5 is well worth it.

I already rented this from GameFly. I honestly wished that Konami could have made this some type of competition for the other games. As you see from this price, it was not.

i saw it for 5 dollars today at BB and it was on the 70% off cart which makes the game 1.50 plus tax.

Please, don't spend 1.50+ tax on it. I traded my copy into Gamestop today for 33 cents, It wasn't worth keeping even at that price.
Check out by band Four Nights Gone's new single Crash and Burn if you like any type of rock (Three Days Grace, Breaking Benjamin, Chevelle, Avenged Sevenfold etc)

I would much rather have 33 pennied guides than Rock Revolution, you sir made an excellent trade :)

I second that. Poor Konami. They invent the music rhythm genre and then fail to capitalize on it when it finally becomes popular. The piling on of this game is incredible. Just out of curiosity, has anyone actually used the RR drums? They are something....

I ranted about this game in a previous thread when I found it for $5 on clearance at Target - bottom line: avoid this game.

It's not that bad. There are worse covers in other music games. My biggest complaints are the vertical highway and the foot pedal being the center lane for drums.

Now that, my friend, is a shared moment.

Usually when games are bad, people say "but at least I got it for $5."

Compare this thread to other "shit games on huge clearance" threads and you'll get a good barometer for how bad it is.

The actual game structure isn't horrible, but the covers are ATROCIOUS and distracting.

Bought it for PS3 for $5 and it doesn't work with any of my Rock Band instruments. Immediately returning it tomorrow.

The thing that sucks about it isnt the covers. In fact, I kinda like covers because I'm tired of hearing master tracks in every game. Fact is, when you put crap like SK8ER BOI in your game then your game sucks.

Konami only put this out so they could claim MTV was infringing on their patents(activision pays konami royalties) and hurting their business. They didn't care about it.

True (although I'd replace Avril with Fallout Boy myself), but it also has Iron Maiden. Gotta take the good with the bad.

I actually liked the gameplay, you know, the note charts and stuff, but the song selection was no good IMO.

Yeah and with $5 you can invest that in buying the Iron Maiden pack off Rock Band. Problem solved.

Forth. It was slightly funny the first 500 times I saw it said on this board. Honestly, for $5, if you like these music games, how can you go wrong? Either, there is something slightly redeeming about it, or it's so fucking awful, you can laugh at it with your friends. Either way, I have seen people get hard-ons in clearance threads about games that have gotten pretty piss poor reviews, and the prices are usually more than $5.

Picked it up today. $4.24 after Edge + tax. Totally worth it. It's not as good as RB or GH, but it's a still fun once you get used to the vertical scrolling. Plus the covers aren't that bad (Mostly. Some, like Cum On Feel The Noise, are great. Others are... well, Chop Suey) and the graphics are actually quite good. So it's definately worth $5. Or get it used, so you can return it if you don't like it.

Fact is, when you put crap like SK8ER BOI in your game then your game sucks.

You know what else had SK8ER BOI? Elite Beat Agents. And EBA was fucking awesome. Get over it.
