A humorous and fun game that gets old pretty quickly but entertains while it lasts.

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.

A unique blend of marble madness and tower defence that does become repetitive after a while, but sits nicely in the spot reserved for games that are great to dip into now and again.

Rock of Ages 2 brings back everything that made the original so fun and unique, then cranks the dial to eleven!

Rock of Ages II: Bigger and Boulder is a fun title that just about pulls off its strange cocktail of genres. The Monty Python-like presentation is executed well and suits the game's off-the-wall appeal, and its trio of modes and online or offline multiplayer give the game some legs beyond the story. Moreover, the gameplay offers a lot of potential for daft fun despite some sluggish boulder controls and frustrating AI balance issues. If you're after something different, or enjoy some cathartic destruction in your games, you'll have a ball.

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.

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.

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.

Humour that mostly hits the mark, and good local multiplayer, but it's too familiar.

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.

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.

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 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.

If you're a fan of tower defence games, then you'll likely enjoy the fun elements that Rock of Ages 2 injects into an otherwise fairly dry genre.

Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder is a satirical take on historical and mythological figures, and blends them into this weird and wacky tower defence game. Although the tutorial may do a poor job in explaining the mechanics of the game, this is still easy to pick up and understand. However, be prepared for some ruthless beginnings while messing about with the various obstacles to better understand what works. This game is not to be taken too seriously in terms of story and aesthetics, and it is great for a laugh or two, as they serve as a precursor to the amount of tears that come from some clunky boulder mechanics and some awfully hard AI opponents. Go off- or online with two players and have heaps of fun in what is sure to be a great way to pass the time in a not-so-serious environment of pure mayhem and carnage.

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.

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.
