Weak

Fail Import

Lego characters, some additional songs, mainly wanted it to export the songs by just buying the export code. However, not only does it cost $10 for the capability to export the songs from Lego Rock Band you also need a new copy of the game and the code that comes in the box. Lame.

I rented this so I can see how these songs looked on RB and I was surprised. I bought this later so I can export these songs onto my RB title games.

-Pros-
songs=great variety of songs + DLC (suitable for children)
career=wished RB titles has something similar (ex. rock den, office, stage and vehicles)

-Cons-
DLC=was only suitable for children

Overall: B

When I added this game to my queue I was mainly considering just importing the songs to my ps3 and sending it right back. Then I put the game in, and slowly it started to reel me in. The rock band interface is just as appealing as RB2, if not more, and the setlist is extremely diverse and fun to play. For the first time a rock band setlist has actually surprised me with some awesome alternative tracks. The Coral, The Kooks, The Automatic, The Hives and a few other great alt bands contributed to the song list. There are also some surprisingly fun songs to play that caught me off guard. Who knew playing crocodile rock could be fun?? Dare I say that customizing your band is more fun than it is on RB2? You can deck out your rock den with various random items and tailor it to your personal tastes, as well as customizing your character. One of the features that I especially like is the rock challenges. For example, in the first rock challenge, you're tasked with taking down a run down building with the power of rock. To Tick Tick Boom by The Hives nonetheless!! It just makes the gameplay a more immersive and fun experience. The only real downside I can think of is that at first the lego block notes kind of threw me. But, after a few songs I was playing fine. Also, if you're not a fan of alt rock or pop rock, you may not find as many enjoyable songs. This set list is geared towards children so there really isn't any hard rock to speak of. Also, they charted the claps and stomps for We Will Rock You by Queen, which was a bit odd. Overall, if you're a fan of alt rock, are in desperate need of pampering the kid in you, and are looking for some new songs to play, rent this game. I'm probably gonna have to keep this one.
