when you couple rockband 3 with rockbands ever growing library of dlc's and throw in the new keyboard it all adds up to the greatest music game ever created period. it also makes for one heck of a party game, so call over some friends and get to jamming

Well here we are. The third installment to the Rock Band series. I have played Rock Band's 1 and 2 and now that i have given 3 a try, im not what you would call, "impressed." Like the other Rock Band games, they had good music and good band roles to assume, extensive character and band creator, and good graphics. I went into Rock Band assuming that it would be good just like Rock Band 2. But while i was impressed by the challenges, cool band progress and so on. I knew that this Rock Band would be just like others before it. The problem i have with Rock Band games (Except Green Day Rock Band) is that playing the songs on a different look that it dismantles my playing and causes me to get 4 stars on songs i wouldent normally get 4 stars on. This is also causes my solos to be as sloppy as your one fat, weird cousin at Thanksgiving dinner. At first i forgave these faults and tried to overcome them but the problem didnt seem to get fixed. I then turned to the games answer and tried calibrating but these efforts did little to combat the issue. I started my first song assuming to hear an awsome guitar riff with a rock tone but i was sadly mistaken like a nerd thinking he has a change of taking his braces off on his own. It seems that now Rock Band has caved and taken the same route as Guitar Hero and focused their song choices on more mainstream music which doesent make for a good expert mode experiance. As i progressed through the game i noticed more songs that i knew. But i wasent prepared for the hard guitar riffs and solos that were thrown at me. But with the playing problem i was having made the songs less enjoyable to master. Rock Band is a game series that gave Guitar Hero a run for its money. But with this new installment, i felt that the game lacked in what made the other Rock Band's a good game to have at a party when everyone is drunk and thinks they can sing like Getty Lee. They say that your own good as your last show. All in all, Rock Band 2 was better. 6/10!
This game had some really cool effects and graphics for one thing. The only reason i really had it though were becuase of my own downloads i already had and for the fun challenges in this game... Plus i wanted to a freakin plane.. But anyways besides all that too much of the songs on this game are way too pop and just total garbage. If i ever ever ever have to play whip it by devo again i will cut the earth in half with a chainsaw. I give this game an 8
