I wasn't really sure what to expect with this game. I definitely like it, but it feels like for every new venue I play, I am just playing the same songs that I played in the previous venue. Just in my opinion, this game is a little repetitive but overall it is good. I think there should be more of a song selection though.

Rock Band and Guitar Hero games have long been some of my favorites, but lately they have just all been the same. Lego Rock Band is definitely unique, and with a good soundtrack and fun gameplay this is definitely a must play for any rock band fan. 7/10
Really, why do you play Rock Band? The music, of course! And this music rocked - I nearly had a heart attack of joy when I saw KoRn's version of "Word Up!" on the setlist, not to mention a couple of Queen hits (it's about time, in my opinion). Come on, Elton John, Boys Like Girls, Lostprophets, Counting Crows, and the real kicker - Spinal Tap? How could this game not be great?
Really, I couldn't get into the game (despite the AWESOME soundtrack) simply because of the lack of customization. It disappointed me, particularly from a LEGO game, because despite the technology and the real-life resources available this game had the character customization of an SNES fighting game. Considering that the ability to design your own rocker has always been a key point of the Rock Band games, I expected a lot more from the LEGO guys.
So all in all - the setlist is probably my favorite out of RB1, 2, and LEGO, but the appearance of the game was too disappointing for me to get into it, almost like they took a step back from RB2 and ended up somewhere between the first and second games.
