Weak

Is it even worth renting?

The answer is yes the game provides a good diversion from standard rhythm gaming fare, but that is also where it is weak , this is really just a mini game blown into a full born level after level boss after boss affair. The gameplay utilizes your instrument of choice, guitar, mic or drums, which a friend can also use for local co-op. Is this game worth your time? if you like steady easy achievements, Rob Zombie who is in the game but you have to dig for him. You might have fun but the voice cast is wasted as are the Zombie tunes. The gameplay works and the bosses are at least humorous but the experience adds up to a glass of watery Kool-Aid. If this had been a part of larger game I would have loved it, on its own however everything wears thin. I did enjoy playing through the good and evil endings however and I laughed, once or twice.

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

the worst ever

this is possibly the worst game ever. as a matter of fact, I don't know if you even need to play it - what I mean by that is that after just a few notes, we had decided that it was horrible and just randomly pushed all buttons. During that time we got perfect and great scores! thank heavens I didn't have to actually pay for this game!
