Review for Rock Star Manager

I got the game from a promo-code and will try to review as objectively as possible.

Rock Star Manager is a management game where you have a few years to manage a Rock Star to stardom with 5 gold records.
Time is counted as YMW (as in Kairosoft games) and manageing consists in choosing one action after another that will last a certain duration.
Your other ressource is money and the game ends when you don't have enough money for your next action.

I have played a few games and don't think I have lasted more than a year. The main interface where you choose your actions consists in two portraits (the rock star you chose and his assistant) each with one bubble of text... and that's pretty much it (except for the newspaper front page that shows up every once in a while indicating how you are performing).

Aside from the gameplay, other music management games I have played to have the following issue as well: the background music should be cool (it is a music game after all). I can understand licensing costs money but still: music should be central to this kind of game. In the case of Rock Star Manager you have a single generic tune for the whole duration of a game. Well, other games I have played don't do much better in this department.

This game does not distinguish itself from generic management games, the premises could have made a difference but in this case only the polygon portraits of rock stars (see game screenshots) can relate. And also, though I am not a native speaker, I can only frown on the game texts being littered with syntax and grammatical errors.

cooltea, thanks a lot for your point of view and your post.

Some hint - in current game version you can turn off music and sound in game options and than start your music for playback befor next game launching.

All ingame sounds maden by pro sound designer. And same for dialogs localization to slang manner - by professional translators - but it good point to re-edit in next localization.

One more. Especially it's important for me to know is it difficult for you to win or not for next possible rebalancing.

Anyway, thanks for your feedback.

p.s. few ingame advices: there is best way to practice or record disks after gifts; no point to make gift in next turn after previous gift; and obviously great to make gigs right after advertising.
