Gameplay: There are a few things different about RTD that you might not find in other games. What, you ask? Not only are you tramplying through endless hordes of brain-sucking undead with a weapon of your choice, but you'll be facing some moments when you just stand there and fend the zombies off with your supposed "awesome" guitar skills. The guitar segments are not only stupid, and boring, but ridicuosly easy! Guitar in real life is WAY harder, trust me...
Storyline: Linear, like a lot of zombie games. You're trapped in some place, got to get out. Nothing really exciting, so i'll skip to the next portion of this review...
Sound/Graphics: OK, so the Graphics aren't as bad as i may cut them out to be, but heck, the Sound is! I feel like i'm standing in a sound-proof room while hearing a very muffled guitar song playing outside, along with a horde of slow undead lumbering towards whoever is playing the guitar (or, to be correct, SUCKING at guitar... sorry...).
AI: The zombies are slow, only a few times in the game will you be presented a REAL challenge where you'll have to think things over, unlike previous parts of the game. No allies, sadly, but i bet if there were any, they would suck, just like the zombies.
Conclusion (Finally!): I threw Rock the Dead straight back into the mail after beating it within a five hour time slot. Maybe the creators will read this, and create Rock the Dead 2, a game that addresses all my major concerns. :foodndrink:
Thank you GameFly

Yes, the game is VERY easy to beat. If you start to get low on health, you can always button mash your way through a segment. Oh, you won't get the special blast attacks or shields to power up but, you won't need them anyway. Just keep strumming as fast as you can and randomly push the fret buttons, that's enough to get you through it.
The biggest challenge of the game comes from the fact, that the notes you need to play during the game, are presented horizontally. Every other music game out there, uses a vertically scrolling set of target notes. Nope, not here. It wasn't broke but, they still tried to fix it.
If you think you might want to get it so you can pad your trophies with an easy Platinum.. Guess again. It's a full release title but, the only trophies you will find, are a couple dozen bronze ones to achieve. No silver, no gold, and NO platinum. Even unlocking everything on the hardest levels, gain you nothing but Bronze. Sad. Didn't even know they could release a disc based game without a full set of trophies.
Even the usually very funny Neil Patrick Harris and Felica Day (the Guild) can't make it worth sitting through. The writing is juvenile at best and, borderline insulting (if you live in a trailer) at worst. Nothing funny and, get's repetitive before the end of the third level.
Summary: Avoid at all cost. Not even worth a rental.
