If I had played this game for an hour and stopped, I would have given it 5 stars. Unfortunately, I tried to beat the game in one sitting. After so much repetition of the 5 Rob Zombie/White Zombie songs I was about to throw my guitar through my television.

This game is pretty good but doesn't have a large variety of songs and it makes you go through each level which could be up to half an hour listening to the same song over and over until you either beat the level or until a big character rushes you which will start a short clip of the level song (usually the intro or refrain). During these battles, you will have to play Guitar Hero/Rock Band style. If you get enough notes correct the baddie will die, if not you have to start over again. Once you go back to the game, the level song track starts again. It's alright in the beginning where you don't get rushed that much but toward the end you get rushed every few seconds. It's not all Rob Zombie though. The game also has heavy metal versions of classical music which surprisingly aren't as annoying as listening to Zombie over and over. This is pretty bad because I am a Rob Zombie fan, I can only imagine people who don't like his music playing this game.

As for the other parts of the game Dougie Howser (Neil Patrick Harris) plays the main character and makes interesting quirky remarks throughout the game. It makes the game interesting and fun to play. The game itself does not take itself too serious (having to fight a transformer made up of the vehicles in a trailer park) and would have been a pleasure to play if not for the bad soundtrack.

In Case you are wondering the soundtrack is made up of Blur the Technicolor, American Witch, What?

This was a great random find... for this OBSCURE and under-appreciated gem of a game. what it lacks in overall polish is made up for by innovative concept and game play. I have always thought it would be FUN to revive the old "The Bard's Tale" as a new game using the ubiquitous guitar controller everyone has these days, but until that day, this will just have to suffice. So BAD it's GOOD is right! \M/ Rock on Dude.

This was one of the most disappointing PS3 games that I've played.

It had two gameplay aspects that I love: arcade shooter and music. Despite that, it ends up being an awful game.

The biggest problem is its length. The game just goes on and on and on. The entire game takes over 4 hours to clear, and for an imitation arcade-shooter, that's way too long. It went from an interesting concept of defeating monsters with music notes to an annoying one.

Another big problem is the music. Most of the tracks are by Rob Zombie, but the battles with big monsters are done with random sections of the same song instead of in order. Sometimes, the same song sections will appear with 2 or more big monsters in the same level.

The voiceovers are textbook definitions of "phoned-in". Everyone sounded like there were just reading their lines.

Looks bad and plays worse. The narrator is kind of funny if you're into to country-boy humor, otherwise, just not a good game.
