Rock Manager is an insanely fun game where you can take a band of headbanging thrashers or soda-drinking popstars and do pretty much what you want with them. Everything is possible, from scheduling live concerts, to staging the misfortunate deaths of your sometimes annoying band members. Seriously, you will be amazed at just how many things are possible in this game. Rock Manager is not the king of graphics, realistically speaking, but the colorful character animations and the brilliant songs give the game tremendous personality. Musically speaking, there's something here for everybody. Pop, rock, dance, metal, it's all there. However, there are only 8 rather easy objective-based missions, and a ninth one that pretty much lets you do your own thing. This shortens the lifespan of the game, as after a few days you'll find that the number of performers and songs at your disposal are sadly limited. In that case, all you can do is wait and hope for a Rock Manager 2. Besides that, there seems to be nothing wrong with this magnificent game, and I highly recommend you give it a shot.

The most fun PC game I have played in a long time! The characters are very humorous (some cuss a lot, this is not for kids) and being able to mix songs in the studio is a definite plus. It has every aspect of the rock music business, from choosing band members, recording and mixing songs, album cover design, public relations, marketing, booking concerts, band interaction, touring, scandals and rehab. My only complaint with this game is that the eight different scenarios are a little too easy. I really hope someone creates another game like this involving the rap or country music business. I highly recommend this!

The game has a good concept, but isn't fully developed. At first the game is very fun, especially the in the studio mixing of songs. Unfortunately I quickly worked out that no matter how well I mixed a track that it basically had no game effect. By halfway through the campain I had gotten the fun of mixing down to a few seconds and still producing #1 hits.
The interface is annoyingly slow and cumbersome. Once you find your way around the city you'll find yourself repeating step after step just looking for the basic information that could much better be displayed on a single information page.
Each senario is won basically the same way - buy song, record demo, get record contract for smallest advance and highest royalty, design album cover, send demo copy to radio/magazine/newspaper, 5 days of maximum affordable advertising before releasing album, do as many gigs in the city as possible, give all the band gifts to make them happy, do as much of a world tour as you can do. Repeat.
Most of the available band members are interesting and well rounded. The game play is basically too easy. I was all done within 5-6 hours.
The game gets 3 stars because it was so reasonably priced.

This game was fun and as the other gamer said, its easy to learn. The concept is great and dreamcatcher did a good job setting it up so the concept and the actual game would both be good. the different missions are fun, some hard some easy, but i like mixing the songs the most. so heres the overview of the game- hire band members, buy a licsense to a song, record it any of 4 recording studios (of course you have to make your way up in order to record in the best studio) make an album cover, you may make a video as you go through the missions, and you advertise. you eventually play to the grand capitol, new york by going on a tour. a tour is fun because theres all kinds of different equipment you can use...example-small medium or big lights. small medium or large speakers. tv screens behind the stage. smoke makers, laser designs, or even fire! its really a good game until you beat it, then you just go back to your favorite level and do it all over again! i suggest this item for ages 14/15-any age!

I finished this game the same day that I started it. This was not a day of dedicated gameplay either, although it was a day that involved too much goofing off. This is a short, short game, based around a few simple missions. The missions are a load of fun while they last - I was left wanting more rather than feeling that I had wasted my time. However, once they are done, there is not much point in replaying them. In a way, I was looking forward to finishing the missions so that I could go on to what I thought of as the "real game" - building up a band from rags to riches. However, it quickly became clear that this was a pretty mechanical process requiring few real choices on my part, so that quickly grew dull.
What is good about the game:
The missions are a load of fun. There was as many twists on the basic "build up a band" plot as I could think of.
The various characters have loads of personality and are very funny. The satire is cuts right to the bone.
You get to play around in a virtual recording studio. There isn't much game effect that I could see (apart from whether you decide to use session musicians or not), but its a toy.
What is not good about the game:
Put simply, there are too few choices, which leaves the game somewhat mechanical. For instance, there are only 25 musicians to choose from (fewer the scenarios). The game would easily be much better if the player could make up new ones or audition randomly generated ones. Obviously, such new characters would not the voiceclips and background information that are provided for the characers that come with the game, but replayability counts more than style. Similarly, there is only a limited selection of songs to choose from.
