Customer Reviews

Pretty disappointing

I was really excited when I heard about this, bought it and was very disappointed. They have fixed a lot of bugs since it was released but it feels like there wasn't much effort put into it. It's incredibly too difficult and that makes it no fun to play. All the bosses might be different characters but they are all the same. If you're looking for a very difficult and very repetitive game this might be for you. Not as metal as I hoped.

WAAAYYY Too Difficult

The latest update (May 2014) made this game entirely too difficult.

Enemies hit harder, and you're screwed unless every hit is a supercharged one.. And you don't have time to charge every single one. Enemies will run through your special attacks to inflict damage- and will also annoy you during boss battles, attacking simultaneously, so taking damage is inevitable.

Special friend attacks? (Satriani, Misha, etc) You must actually hit an enemy into their icons to activate... why?

I can barely, if at all, surpass the first boss battle now. Loses fun now that it's so difficult

So good, but so bad....

I love the concept and everything but the enemies come to fast and strikes are to slow, every time I hit it takes to long to swing again and I get an enemy to soon
