Rock Band 3 Review


Finally, you can learn how to really play an instrument from a music game.

Rock Band 3 is a great game even with those minor issues. Players willing to spend the extra money for the Pro experiences will find greater in-game challenges and the opportunity to learn more about their instruments. Harmonix has taken a huge step...

Rock Band 3 Review [360/PS3/Wii]


The music game genre has become like one of those indie bands you spend ages trying to get everyone to like, and then when they do make it, they spend a brief period in the spotlight before everyone hates them because they got too big and “mainstream”.

Pretty much the definitive music game of this generation ; Real tangible skills you can learn that can go far beyond the game ; Great value for long time fans of the series

An expensive investment for the ‘full' experience ; Where have the ‘normal' tutorials gone

An expensive investment, but if you’re willing to put in the time and money you’ll find both the best music game for parties and an incredible learning tool for serious rockers. Even if you've already got old plastic instruments and DLC, you'll still...

Rock Band 3 Review


I will freely admit I've been inundated with music games in the past month, which has resulted in a temporary aversion to the genre. Even so, in my eyes, it isn't difficult to see which music game is the class of the category for the holiday season:...

The Ugly: The uninitiated trying Pro Keyboard mode. But as a caveat, this ugliness can upgrade to sheer satisfying beauty given enough time.

Rock Band 3 Review


Rock Band 3 is a complete package and quite possibly the definitive music game. Once again, Harmonix defines and sets the bar for what the music genre can achieve. It will be hard pressed for anyone, Harmonix included, to top this game.

Rock Band 3 Review


Harmonix shows once again why it's the king of the music/rhythm genre.

Cleans up a host of RB2's shortcomings; Pro mode; keyboard is well-made. Road Challenges are fun; better music filtering; ability to rate songs; overshell mode adds flexibility; all songs are unlocked at the start

Keyboard implementation is limited; Pro mode (drums excepted) doesn't backtrack to legacy content; Overshell mode lacks enough flexibility

Rock Band 3 (PS3) Review


Harmonix sets a new bar for music games by overhauling the Rock Band series and letting players learn to play an instrument.

As an avid rhythm gamer who was convinced he saw "everything there was to see", catching my first glimpse of Rock Band 3 made me smile. Harmonix sought out to not only revive the rhythm genre, they also provided the option for people to pick up an...

[Editor's Note: This review covers the basic Rock Band 3 experience available on the disc, excluding the keyboards, pro guitar, and pro drums. Separate coverage of those instruments and their related modes will be forthcoming.] There's a moment that...

Rock Band 3 is the perfect music game for those hoping to increase their music appreciation and maybe pick up some real musical skill along the way.

Rock Band 3 Review


At GDC and E3 this year, developers behind music games showed off what they had to offer for gamers who have shown themselves to be increasingly sick of plastic controllers and fake drum sets. Some developers made the safe bet to just offer good music...

While Harmonix is asking people to spend money on new hardware to get most of the new features, the ability to bring a full seven (!) people in to play together at once is simply amazing in a party scenario. Combine that with some super-convenient...

Rock Band 3


Harmonix makes learning fun by further blurring the line between education and entertainment.

Excellent track list; filtering songs is a breeze; keyboard is a great addition; Pro modes are fun challenges; career mode is smoothly integrated

Pro Guitar peripheral feels cheap; odd bundle choices; not nearly enough songs with keyboard support
