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

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.

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 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.

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.

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!

Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder is smart, funny, and quirky in all the best ways. It was a big surprise to get a sequel to the 2011 PSN game, but I'm happy it did. Although I wish more effort would have been put into making the boss battles feel climactic and challenging, rather than tacked-on additions, the meat of the experience is an exciting and stylish tower defense game with a unique premise. I can't name another game that lets you squish the likes of Van Gogh , Henry VIII, and Medusa with a boulder that's rolled through numerous famous works of art. Allowing for four people to get in on the Monty Python-styled action both locally and online is just the feather in the cap of Atlas' adventure as he flees from God.

Even without the post-launch fixes to come, Rock of Ages II: Bigger & Boulder is an excellent game and basically acts as everything you would hope for a sequel to have.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Ultimately, there may not be all that much that's genuinely new about Rock of Ages 2, but the sheer solidity of what's on offer here affirms that ACE Team have hewn themselves a sequel that nobody asked for, yet will find handily enjoyable anyway.

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.

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.
