Weak

Achievement hunters

For my fellow achievement hunters I have a few tips. play on easy as there are less notes and you progress through the game quite easily. I found that using a controller is much easier than the guitar. The drums are a good choice too adding that you dont have to strum. The most annoying aspect is hitting the wrong note first only to be stuck targeting a different zombie striking the wrong note repeatedly. give the game a run through on easy and maybe try for the collectables. This can easily score you about 500 points or so.

Horrible

Falls dead at the starting line.

If you're like me and have played several rhythm games in the past, the biggest and most obvious flaw becomes apparent immedately.

The notes scroll from left to right, and there's no option to change that.

Anyone who has been connected to the rhythm music genre at all is probably used to the background to foreground method of scrolling. This pointless change is more crippling than you might expect.

If you can get past that, all the better to you. For me, it was too much of a game breaker for me to continue beyond a few levels. That, and the game locked up on a glitch in the second level right before the big crab boss.

Ever thought it'd be cool to play your old playstation 2 games on your xbox360?? Now you can have that same feeling with, "Rock of the Dead". Seriously... this game does not utilize the 360 consoles resources at all.

Kodus for trying something new -- and giving me another use of my Rock Band equipment.... but NO -- please not this. Immediate return. Thank God it was a rental.
