Top Customer Reviews
Critics said it has only 40 cover songs, no singing part when compared to the other 2 games. But there is no problem because I bought this for playing drums and it is much cheaper. The best thing is I can use my compatible RB1 drumset to play with this game (the drumset does not work with RB2!).
Critics said its kick pedal notation is not compatible with other 2 games. Yes! In the first day when I played it, it is quite hard as I am used to see vertical bar as kick pedal. However, in the second day when I played it, I am already used to its kick pedal notation style.
What I like most is the Career mode. It has funny and challenging missions like avoiding the poison notes, complete a song in 3 difficult levels, the song speeds up when the multiplier increases, learn and play the song without markers, and play the songs without error. This provides much more fun than RB!
Though there is no gimmick features like choosing my own clothes, instruments, tattoos,..., it is a funny game to play if you already have a guitar or drumset and you want to play more songs and face some new challenges.
You can play drums, guitar, or bass, there are no vocals on Rock Revolution. I played with a Rock Band Guitar and Rock Band Drums, also tried Guitar Hero World Tour drums as described below. The Rock Band guitar worked fine with this game.
The vertical note scrolling isn't great, but I got used to it. The circular shape of the notes was ok and they were bright, better than the "Chinese hats" or whatever those Guitar Hero notes are, but the bright clear rectangles of Rock Band are the best in my opinion.
As far as drumming, the kick pedal notation as "just another note" is jarring, I did get used to it but never completely liked it. I was using the Rock Band drums and they work well for the most part, but the Guitar Hero World Tour drums weren't great with this game, the note mapping was too far off (especially on the cymbals), much like using the Guitar Hero drums in Rock Band.
On the guitar side, it seemed like there were more chords and I felt like I was actually playing Electric Guitar more than Rock Band. There's also an occasional notation in certain songs when you're supposed to just wail on a note; you just have to strum a certain speed or above and hold the note. That was a nice touch and seemed somewhat realistic.Read more ›
The game itself isn't that bad, but it is not even in the same zip code as the far superior Rock Band and Guitar Hero titles. Once you've gotten used to seeing the 3-D scrolling of the notes in RB and GH, the vertical scroll in Rock Revolution is a major downgrade. It is also much harder to get a feel for exactly when the notes should be strummed; I got used to the GH timing almost immediately, but this game was much more awkward (I'd swear I was hitting the notes in rhythm, but kept missing them).
Then there is the calibration. When I played my very first song, I noticed that there was at least a half-second lag time, and I had to strum the notes early or I'd miss them. After trying to calibrate the lag three times (a process which was in itself difficult), it was only slightly better, and there's nothing as freaking annoying as playing a game like this and missing notes you KNOW you hit.
Another feature that sounded like a good idea but ended up being nothing more than irritating was the "poisoned notes" sprinkled throughout each song. These are notes that are thrown at you along with the "real" notes, but they are hollow instead of colored. If you hit these "poisoned notes," you lose your score multiplier, and even worse, if you hit too many of them, the song ends immediately (like getting booed off the stage for missing too many notes). This sounded like a novel idea, but I found it very frustrating.Read more ›
The songlist consists of cover versions of some pretty decent songs and they are generally executed very well.
The vertical 2D guitar display isnt that difficult a hang of,and isn't that bad.There is a tutorial which helps u to get through the game and is pretty intuitive.
The graphix and animations are passable, but being the type of game it is ,its not that crucial to the gaming experience,what is , is the gameplay and here is where rock revolution can decide whether u love or hate it!
I personally first time played 2 hrs pretty much non stop and generally had no problem with the game, ther was the general overall feeling of playing a guitar ,being that alot of the songs consist of chords as opposed to notes , meaning that your sliding your fingers up and down the neck of the guitar quite alot, notes are more difficult to hit especially when they come in groups and and are moving pretty fast down the neck.
Difficulty levels are overall accurate , each song has its difficulty level as well ,so for example if you play a song with a low difficulty level ,it's still gonna be pretty easy to pull off even at the games medium difficulty level and obviously if you pick a song with a hard difficulty level its gonna be quite a challenge to pull off at the games medium difficulty level.Read more ›

THIS GAME IS TERRIBLE. Here's why: It is NOT ROCKBAND as you know it. the notes are shaped differently, songs are poorly transcribed to game play, there is no metering on the staff... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Karen A. Conway
Couldn't use a mic with this game wish I had known before purchasedPublished 23 months ago by kenneth wood
Given as a gift to my grandson for Christmas. He didn't like it but couldn't return because he opened it..
Wouldn't purchase anything like it again.
The way the notes are set up, it's really hard to see what's coming as well as what you're playing. It's definitely not kid friendly (well, at least for mine), or me-friendly!Published on April 6, 2013 by JenniferErickson
This game kinda sucks. Any Guitar Hero o Rock Band game beats it by far. It's hard to get used to the symbols and everything, so you can't hit the notes. Read morePublished on February 4, 2013 by Mauro A. Rinaldi
I am charmed with me, it was received in time and in very good conditions. Him my children like me.Published on January 18, 2013 by Hildelen
Its OK, the audio is not original but it's entertaining.
I played some hours but I didn't like that the songs not sound like the original
