I am a PS3 owner and someday hope to be a PS4 owner, yet I am not at all dissatisfied with my choice to delay purchase, solely based on the current PS4 library. When I transitioned from a Playstation 1 to a Playstation 2, I was pleasantly surprised that I could for the most part rid myself of my PS1...

What do these ratings mean?

Before you start reading my review, I would just like you all to know that I don’t have too much music game playing experience. The only prior music game experience I’ve had is playing Elite beat agents for the DS.   I have never played any of the Guitar hero games, Dance dance revolution, karaoke revolution or any other music based arcade game. What can I say? I just never got into them.  Rock band just captured me enough to go out and dish out some 160 bucks. But now that I’ve played and jammed on Rock Band, I can tell you that it was well worth 160 bucks.

 

If you’ve never played a music game before, all you really do is make sure you hit the right button or sing at the right pitch at the right time.  As it becomes more difficult, you’ll be required to press multiple buttons more frequently at a faster pace.  

 

Playing Rockband solo is fun.  Playing on xbox live is even more exciting.  Playing Rockband with family and friends together in the same room is even greater.  Playing Rockband on a huge 72” screen or bigger with the speakers at max volume and playing with 3 other friends is an experience everyone should be able to have.  The fun is amazing and will last forever (that is until they stop releasing new songs every week). 

 

Rock Band will keep you entertained for many moons to come with its four different instruments (Guitar, Bass, Drums, and Mic). The difficulty on rock band ranges from someone who has never played a music game to someone who is looking for a tough challenge.  Rock Band also has a ton of music to choose from and with new music added weekly (with a price) you’ll be rockin out for a long time.  There is a lot of classic music that no matter how many times you might happen to listen to it, you still can’t get enough of it.  


The only real negative is that if you want to play with 3 other friends, they either have to have a extra guitar, or you need to buy a extra one.  So what I did was purchase GH3 and used the guitar for my rock band.  I have yet to open and play my GH3 but if a stand alone guitar is already 80 bucks, for 20 bucks more you get GH3 Guitar and game. Which I happen to think is the better way to go. 

 

I’ve never thought a music game could be this fun and recommend it to anyone who enjoys rock music.  I grade this game: A
