Rockstar is an extremely outdated text only based game but it has much going for it even now, I remember playing this game over and over again back in the day because I loved the concept of being the leader in the best rock and roll band in the world. But you have to be very careful here or you may end up burnt out or in an early Rockstar grave.
This one game is an addictive game dealing with the over the top excesses of your stereotypical Rockstar of the 80’s; the game has an excellent sense of humor.
Underneath all the temptations such as drug abuse, alcoholism, groupie sex you still have to develop a business sense and display your talents, like a good voice to succeed.
You need to produce and record albums and hits while touring Europe and the entire world without giving into the base temptations too much. One of my favorite parts of the game is naming my band and my songs which also results in many hours of game play when you want to try something new.
Music is the main emphasis in Rockstar with drugs running a very close second. Steer clear of heroin because just like in real life the addiction may be too hard to overcome but hey you always have LSD to keep
you amused. With the progression of the game you are offered many different types of drugs as I imagine would happen in real life, some actually make you more creative and of course others will lead you down the path to counselors and rehabs, if it gets too bad you might end up in the asylum or overdosing.
There are a lot of obstacles to overcome in this game obviously and as your fame increases so does the demand for more concerts and more records. You need to learn when to keep going and when to slow down and take a holiday.
Rockstar is a great game, very addictive just like the drugs in the game, and has the ability for you to totally waste hours with trying to become a great Rockstar. You’ll be satisfied and delighted!
