Don't call me mean or picky, but i find the graphics on ALL the RockBand games to be a bit... what's the word? Oh yes, ANNOYING! I'm not saying Guitar Hero is any better, but since i'm here and i waited a week for this game to arrive in my mail, i'll write a review for you guys...
Gameplay: Not much to say really! Sticking to the old basics is fine by me, and adding Pro Mode really helps me soothe my Hardcore Gamer Itch (don't ask!)
Sound/Graphics: The Sound has improved by a lot since RB2, so that makes me happy... for now... The Graphics on the other hand, didn't please me much, as i absolutely HATE the Graphics for all RockBand games with a burning passion. But that might just be me, so continue reading this review.
Song/Music: The Songs are much better this time around; not only does RB3 include some good classics from previous games, but it brings us all up to speed with the new hip music that you can hear on your radio today (yes, i admit it, i listen to old music...).
Storyline: Storyline? What else did you want me to call it? You start out as a little band on the streets, barely getting any audience at all, and soon enough, within 2 or so hours, you rise up to be the best band that America has ever seen! If you ask me, it seemed a bit too easy (i guess that's why i had to switch to Pro Mode halfway through the game...)
Conclusion: All in all, RB3 rises above most of these stupid new music videogames, and gives me something to do after a long day (i found RB3 very calming after having fourteen stitches stuffed into the side of my nose!) So, rent it, but don't buy it, unless you found it a game you can play over and over and over again... :foodndrink:
Although it is another music game, i feel that this sequal to the franchise is a good addition. it allows the player to go on line and to play with other fans of the game. my experiance haowever with music style video games are still limited to the guitar hero series, but i thought that i would give rock band a shot and i was not disapointed. there is a wonderful array of different music genras in game as well as the songs that you can down load for a price that is. i am not saying that you should not give it a try because you may surprise yourself with how good you are. also i recommend this and any music associated game to the music lover. i give this game a rating of 9, because of its music quality, and the fun that the individual gamer (and non-gamer) has with this game.
