Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder
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 humorous and fun game that gets old pretty quickly but entertains while it lasts.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
