Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder Reviews
Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder still has that fun mix of platforming, racing, and tower defense that I liked about the original but it doesn’t feel that much bigger and different from it.
Part physics simulation, tower defense and Monty Python-esque historical satire, Rock of Ages 2: Bigger and Boulder finally rolls its way into the Switch. While the game remains fun and being able to take it on the road is great, the Switch version, unfortunately, suffers from a lack of local co-op. Thankfully, you can still play against others online but you might be better off getting it for other systems for the full experience.
I wish I had more fun with the tower defense mode, but the fun the presentation provides helps smooth over these concerns. If you're looking for a laugh on your Switch, you're not going to find anything on Switch more willing to laugh at itself than Rock of Ages 2. In spite of some of my gameplay concerns, I recommend it.
Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder is an ingenious mixture of madness that is punctuated with highly entertaining animated sequences. The striking visual style that ACE Team is known for is distinct with just an acceptable amount of amateurishness keep it hilarious and memorable. Whether it's going up against another human or the AI, everyone should always throw rock.
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.
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 humorous and fun game that gets old pretty quickly but entertains while it lasts.

If you’re looking for an unusual little curio that's quite unlike anything else on Nintendo Switch, Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder is the oddity for you.
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.
It is difficult to not get pulled in by the insane humour and fun, solid, gameplay delivered with Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder. It is both a perfect solo player game to play through once or maybe twice, and a great multiplayer game to pick up with friends on social gatherings. The simple, yet fun nature of it is like a good joke everyone gets and rolls along with, even if they have heard it before.
If you're looking for a weird but charming PlayStation 4 release where you roll a boulder around, with cutscenes that have a good sense of dry humor and a Monthy Pythong look to them, then Rock of Ages 2: Bigger and Boulder is exactly what you need on Sony's home console. There's plenty of content and a ton of weird weapons and boulders to use, so I'm sure you'll find something that pleases you. And if you don't, well, though luck!
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.
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
Humour that mostly hits the mark, and good local multiplayer, but it's too familiar.
Solid and original mix of tower defense and racing game that let us look at history from the perspective of a rock. A hilarious Monty Python-like ride through ages.

Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder just feels like more Rock of Ages. That's not bad, since Rock of Ages was rather unique and fun, but it's not going to win over anyone who didn't care for the first game.
Rock of Ages 2 brings back everything that made the original so fun and unique, then cranks the dial to eleven!
Rock of Ages 2 shows the human history like no other game. It is a beatiful game but unfortunately very short. It's possible to say that Rock of Ages 2 is a piece of art, much more than a game. It is a must-have for lovers of art and human history with a unique sense of humor.

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.
