Bratz: Rock Angelz is a video game based on the popularly sold commercial dolls merchandise and movie. You follow the adventures of four Bratz dolls in a bid to start their own fashion magazine. The Bratz are modelled like stereotypical teenage girls with a love for fashion, music, glamour and paparazzi.
Following the firing of one of the Bratz dolls from her internship at a magazine, the four girls unite to start up their own magazine. Starting a new business venture isn’t easy and the girls must go through various hurdles to see their magazine become successful, and a force to be reckoned with. The girls eventually form a rock band which becomes successful, and they also launch a successful fashion brand.
You control all the four Bratz dolls throughout the game, but only one can be controlled at a time. Each girl has their own specialty, so the game switches you to the girl needed for a task. The controls are very easy and you won’t have problems all through the game.
You start the game by repairing a rundown office space and personalizing it to make it fully yours. Mission objectives consist of tasks like taking photos and checking out the latest fashion and makeup trends for your magazine.
The open world format allows you to explore four different areas. Scattered around the game world are coins that can be used to purchase various items and unlocks. You get to meet famous people and superstars in glamorous locations. You sniff around these locations for hot stories to be featured in your magazine.
You own a smartphone for performing tasks like checking coins collected, sending messages, and tracking objectives. You can change the ringtone and cover of the phone. You can design posters and T-shirts. You can also draw pictures all over the faces of the Bratz using various shades of lipsticks. You have fun experimenting with various jewelry, clothing, makeup and accessories.
You can play minigames to gain extra coins. The minigames consists of a variety of things like posing for pictures, picking up flags, picking up dropped pieces of papers etc. The coins you collect can be used to purchase clothes, music tracks, cutscenes and other things. The game’s cutscenes are numerous and lengthy.
If you are expecting the game to follow the plot of the movie, you will be disappointed. It borrows elements from the movies, but doesn’t share the same storyline as the movie.
The game features sponsorship placements for various products. The clothes, makeup and jewelry products are based off real-life products. This gives the game a more realistic feel.
- Ideas well-implemented
- A rare fashion/glamour focused video game
- The game is targeted at young teenage girls
- The gameplay is repetitive and monotonous
For its target audience, Bratz: Rock Angelz is an enjoyable game. Fans of the series will enjoy the girly items and trends. But for anyone else, the game is rather a borefest.
