Rock Band
4.5 Star Review  GameZone - Nov 26, 2007

In this day and age of interactive music in video games, it stands to reason that after Harmonix brought the Guitar Hero franchise on the world it would be the same developers that took it a step further. That step is Rock Band, a game (from Harmonix and EA Games) that is actually four games in one and has a multiplayer element that allows players to form their own band and work through a career mode that is challenging and entertaining. At its core, Rock Band is a matching game. Like Guitar Hero, you match the notes that scroll down a bar in the middle of the screen with buttons on the neck of the guitar, or with the appropriate drum pad.

Rock Band | Playstation 3 - Regular
3 Star Review  productwiki.com - Nov 17, 2009

Rock Band is the highly anticipated game in which players play along with rock music with the included microphone, guitar, and drum accessories. The game borrows many of the elements from the popular Guitar Hero franchise. Rock Band is developed by Harmonix, published by MTV Games, and will be distributed by Electronic Arts. Harmonix has released the titles of 35 songs included with the games. Additionally, other songs can be purchased and downloaded. Guitar The game includes a Rock Band branded Fender Stratocaster guitar (wired for Xbox 360, wireless for PS3/PS2 versions) that offers some improvements over the guitar included with Guitar Hero. There are 5 fret buttons located further up the neck of the guitar dedicated for solo sections using hammer-ons and pull-offs (no strumming required). Also, there is an effects switch on both the wired and wireless version. Harmonix has confirmed that the Guitar Hero and third-party guitar controllers ... PROS: (1) Play as a full rock band with friends (vocals, guitar, bass, drums) (2) Compatible with Guitar Hero controllers (3) Amazing song selection (better than Guitar Hero) (4) Amazing drums peripheral (5) Many downloadable songs available at a reasonable price ... CONS: (1) In world tour mode have to replay the same songs multiple times (2) No"free-for" drumming mode to practice drums without a song (3) No online career mode (4) Bass pedal will break because of poor construction and design (5) Bass foot pedal doesnt fasten securely and is too loose

Rock Band
5 Star Review     

Strengths: Great online play, good songs

Weakness: Graphics are not as good as Guitar Hero 3

I own this game and I think it is a masterpiece. The songs are good and the downloadable content is cool too. The grapics are okay but not as good as Guitar Hero 3 Legends of Rock as this game has more 'cartoony' character which you can play as but this game is an absolute classic
