Good

A good game if you can get used to it.

Being a fan of the House of the dead games, playing them when I was only a kid, this game took that and added my favorite part of games like rock band and guitar hero. They mashed it up into a game that I wouldn't call a "super game" but a game worth a rent. This game has some problems, like in my opinion, some of the "pick-up challenges" or "rescue challenges" go by way too quickly. It may end without you even having the chance to finish it or even press a button.

The only other thing that bothered me (aside from the repetitive and cheesy lines) was the fact that the highway was scrolling sideways. If you play guitar hero or rock band as much as I do, this change may seem minor but it isn't. I can play expert guitar on rock band very successfully, but I tried hardcore on this game and got my butt handed to me several times. Even easy is a challenge.

Overall, if you can get over these minor annoyances, this game is fun to play and worth it. Whether you enjoy it or just want to add more achievements to your list, rent it while you still have your gamefly subscription!

Now im not gonna say i wasn't skeptical when i saw the title "really rock of the dead? seriously?" but when i saw voice talents of rob zombie AND Neil patrick harris i said "now i gotta see this thing" i got it yesterday and it IS fun very very difficult on expert mode but once you get down the notes it becomes easy enough. Replayable? maybe fun as heck at parties? definitely. don't buy it yet wait for it to drop in price by a LOT because its not worth the current price but it is OH SO worth it sort of a combo of witty lines ala postal 2 with graphics from house of the dead with the guitars from rock band
sounds like a badass drink to me

everyone is all mad at this game because they cant handle notes going from right to left instead of straight at them so they whine about it but if your able to adjust which isn't too difficult its a pretty fun game i gave it thew low rating because i completed it in one day but if you want a game that isn't all serious and such this could work for you so don't automatically believe all the people who hate it because its different
