Rock of Ages 2: Bigger and Boulder is here for the comedy. This video game is as rocambolesque as a Monty Python tape and, in fact, its imagery and aesthetic representation is very similar to that of the introductions of its films. Rock of Ages 2 is a surrealist and Non-complex humor. A video game that pits historical figures in battles throwing rocks. Yes, seriously. William Wallace in his castle and you in the other. Choose your best pedrolo and arrójaselo until derribes its doors and squash it.
Gameplay is very simple
Imagine the course of a golf course. The ball, which you handle, is the ball. The adversary can place obstacles for him. You have a lot of gold to invest in traps, troops and supplies to frenarte and give you the tour. Your mission is to dodge everything, get to their base and damage their entrance. After three or four hits, you or he will win, because you have to do exactly the same thing. I mean, you have to live a constant dynamic of setting traps and handling your ball. This is a race and you have to know what destinations your time.
It has to be said that although the game strives to give you new circuits to save, new ways to hinder the opponent and more and more unexpected variables, it becomes repetitive. The cool thing is that the strength of the title is not exactly in these moments of battle, but in the cinematics of humor and in the presentation of more and more crazy scenes, the game shines in the unexpected. Rock of Ages 2 has this English phlegm that makes his texts as imbecile as they are intelligent. Between his tone and the fact that throwing rocks gets entertaining, you end up with a very nice game that you come back for having a laugh. Again, it’s like something done by the Monty Python: gray like England but it knows how to be fun through its miseria.
The Game Modes
In game modes we are well stocked while squeezing what your game system allows. The best thing is your campaign. We have to incarnate Atlas and retrieve the globe that fell from the heavens while he was holding it. Have to lose to him and kick him the ass to stone all who encounter him. This proposal adds to the option of making an obstacle race with our stone, facing someone without so much plot in between, race against time and online for up to 4 players.
In short, Rock of Ages 2 is a very fun game that I have been able to enjoy on Switch. As negative points we have the repetition of its dynamics and that the texts played in portable mode become very small. As positive points: his skittish humor, his hilarious presentation and his tremendous stupidity. Let them ask Napoleon how to make war, let him make a long speech about strategy, and let them answer that ‘war is won by stones!’ know you out a smile. If you’re looking for something different, you’re into English strategy and humor, don’t even think about it. You’re gonna laugh.
