Horrible

Worst of the RockBand Franchise

This was by far the worst Rock Band game. I couldn't stand the overdrive loudness. Really obnoxious. Go from quiet nice sounding music to overly loud, then back to quiet when the over drive was done. I think that alone was the most annoying this about this game I hated.

Its still rock band at heart, but the fact that you are limited to green day is the only drawback...you literally have to love this band or your WILL grow tired of this game very fast.

After playing this game, i've realized that i dont like green day anymore.

I will still give this game a 7 of ten just because its still rockband at heart, but i'd have to say that the beatles edition was better put together

I am an avid gamer and a huge fan of music games. The folks at Harmonix are genius' for introducing the drums and mic into the guitar dominated genre with the release of the first Rock Band game. I haven't been that interested in most of their DLC add ons, (Lady Gaga? Really? We've sunk that low? But I digress) and some of the newer titles are moderately esoteric, but they are genius' none-the-less.

My main question is, as earlier stated, WHAT THE F HAPPENED TO GREEN DAY? You start off playing the stuff everyone was interested in. Rocking out to the entire Dookie album. Then as you progress through the years to the Warning, Nimord, Insomniac stages of the band's life you'll notice a sharp, and frankly unexpected, turn. The punks who were "off the wagon and hitchin' a ride" and "telling you to f off and die" while still writing music you couldn't help but get in to, went soft rock and, dare i say, a little Pop. I noticed this disturbing trend around the begining of American Idiot.

Within a few tracks you go from strumming like crazy hoping to keep up, to standing around playing the same double note for four minutes. Most having 0 difficuly rating. Even if you are a hardcore fan of the new stuff, which means you didn't start listening to Green Day when they were still Green Day, you will get bored very quickly as an easy game usually isn't a fun game. A fun game is one that gets harder as you go. You'll notice none of Bullet in a Bible is on there, and they want you to pay for all of 21st Century Breakdown. Good luck with that.

If it weren't for the fact that the whole Dookie album, Hitchin' a Ride, Geek Stink Breath, Brain Stew/Jaded, and other INCREDIBLE songs are included I'd say don't waste your time. But Harmonix's trademark playability are clearly present making it accesible to veterans and new players alike.

If you think I am being too critical, Last Night on Earth. That's all I have to say. Last Night on Earth. Seriously, guys what happened?
