review: Since indy games seem to be a rage (Audiophile) now-a-days I gave this game a try and was actually happy with it. (Audiophile) Let me start by explaining what this game is all about…
In Rising Star you start as a low level (Audiophile) musician in the city of your choice (ranging from New York to L.A. (Audiophile) to Nashville to Fargo) the game lets you choose the name of your musician, (Audiophile) the name of your band, the instrument you play (Guitar, Vocals, Turntables, (Audiophile) Keyboard, etc.) From there you enter the city you chose for your band (Audiophile) to be in. From there you go to the music stores buy instruments (Audiophile) and start your band up, write songs, perform gigs, etc.
Lets start with the negative, Character (Audiophile) models aren’t to great which is to be expected from an independent game. (Audiophile) Song’s are written through this memory type game where you match tiles (Audiophile) with images on it to make a song. Writing out lyrics and stuff would (Audiophile) be much more fun. The game, while patched constantly, (Audiophile) is pretty buggy.
This is a fun game that if you can (Audiophile) find it for a download I definitely reccommend checking it out.
