Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder Reviews
Quirky and creative, and so very funny, Rock of Ages 2 is unlike many "comedy" games in that it backs the humour up with quality gameplay, very worthy of respect.
Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder features a fantastic albeit familiar mix of genres that's sure to provide some great and often hilarious times.
Rock of Ages has released for a bunch of platforms now, and the port to the switch has gone pretty well. If you haven’t picked it up on another platform, and are looking for a good game to play in your spare time or with a friend, give Rock of Ages 2 a roll, I’m sure it will be smashing!
A divisive game due to matters of strict taste, Rock of Ages 2 nonetheless delivers exactly what it promises, and does so without shame or regret.
Rock of Ages II: Bigger & Boulder doesn't change much when compared to its predecessor, but at least it's still a decent title. In a way, with the amount of added content, it could've been considered an expansion pack of the original game, full of humor but bogged down a little with its very repetitive gameplay.
Overall, Rock of Ages 2 is a solid strategy game wrapped in a lighthearted package with a well-tuned sense of humor and some very well thought-out ideas. Whether you played the first game and are hungry for more, or are just getting into the series for the first time, Rock of Ages 2 will keep both your brain and your funny bone tickled.
Much like its predecessor, the game comes in two parts. The first part is a tower defense game. The second part involves you carefully meandering your own boulder through all the traps the enemy has set down in part one, before hurtling yourself at the enemy gates.
There's a lot to like here, for folks who crave cerebral strategy, reflex-based racing, and a good sense of humor.
At £15.00, this is a game well worth your time if you plan on having some friends round for an afternoon – Combine with a few drinks and an extra-large pizza and you’ve got yourself a perfectly chilled-out Friday night game. Highly recommended.
The game hits all the high notes, with it’s humor very reminiscent of Monty Python, it’s challenging but easy to learn and master gameplay and a super fun multiplayer aspect, and it’s perfect melding of strategy and racing, we cannot recommend Rock of Ages II: Bigger & Boulder enough to fans of those genres.
The graphics are truly fantastic, the audio is quite high in quality, and the gameplay is fun for those that like racing down a hill, dodging/smashing your way through obstacles
Rock of Ages 2 improves on the first game in almost every way. Aside from mostly lackluster boss fights, and a sound design experience that doesn’t have any impact or memorability, the sequel does what every sequel should do by raising the bar on what mechanics already exist instead of trying to make a flurry of new ones nobody asked for. For a small team indie game, you can’t ask for much more than that.
Silly to the extreme, Rock of Ages 2 makes significant changes to its mechanics, offering a more well-rounded tactical experience for both single-player and multiplayer modes.

Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder may not rock your world, but it promises a memorable place in history as one of the weirdest games you’ll play this year.
While the visuals are basic and there are a couple gameplay issues, Rock of Ages II is an overall pleasant romp through history.
