The initial reaction to Rock of Ages is “Huh...that looks weird.” It's true, of course, it does look weird. Not many games cast you as a giant rock. Fewer still cast you as a giant rock who's been battling with historical figures since the dawn of time. The art is even curbed from these periods, making this one of the more visually eclectic titles of the year. Take it apart, though, and you have a slightly more conventional game.
