Before igniting the rhythm game peripheral revolution with the original Guitar Hero, Harmonix released a pair of rhythm games that laid the groundwork for that seminal title: Frequency and Amplitude. Now, with Rock Band Unplugged, Harmonix has gone...

Rock Band Unplugged Review

 

It's Rock Band without the plastic instruments. Still good but not nearly as much fun.

That leads us to the soundtrack of the game where the game take a little hit. Why a hit? Because there are not that many new songs in the game. As a series, Rock Band has always increased the catalog of music with plenty of new tracks that weren't...

Rock Band Unplugged PSP Review

 

Rock Band Unplugged is the best hand held music genre video game I have ever played. The game play is totally engaging and allows a single player to play a full band song seamlessly. The song list maybe a little familiar, but Rock Band Unplugged is the...

Rock-quency.

Strong tracklist

No multiplayer whatsoever

Content and modes

One major disappointment is that Unplugged does not have any multiplayer what-so-ever. Yes, I know, I know - it's alright, you can stop crying now. I am clueless as to why this decision was made, because multiplayer is what really made Rock Band shine...

Here's the only directive I'm going to offer with respect to Rock Band Unplugged. Don't think of it as Rock Band. Sure, the visual signifiers are all there (animated band members, familiar stages, etc.), and so is the basic setup and collection of...

This review is based on a retail copy of the game provided by the publisher.

I gave up on the music performance genre of games after Guitar Hero II. Don't get me wrong, I love them and think they are amazingly fun, but I simply don't have the amount of time necessary dedicate myself to the mastery of these types of games. I've...

Great use of the PSP ; The sound is amazing ; Varying degree of difficulty for newcomers and veterans alike

No multiplayer

I didn’t talk about the multiplayer because Rock Band: Unplugged has none. This is a shame, because being able to have a co-op jam session would be great. Still, it’s better to not have it now and let the developers focus on getting things right for...

Unplugged? Well, apart from hooking up your charger anyway

Captures the Rock Band vibe ; Uses the PSP ingeniously ; Wide range of music

No instrument peripherals ; Managing instruments gets complicated ; Controls aren't intuitive

A lot of that is thanks to the recognizable Rock Band touches – the overdrives, the guitar solos, the world tour, the band creation. There’s even a downloadable store allowing you to grab DLC tunes, via your PSN account. Plus the tunes span everything...

Smart design choices make this handheld debut for the Rock Band series a great one.

Combines Rock Band gameplay with that of Harmonix's earlier games ; Solid, diverse library of 41 songs on the disc ; Range of difficulties makes it accessible to anyone

Rock Band: Unplugged

 

Stop me if you've heard this one before: A hugely successful game maker is looking to capitalize on the success of their top selling music franchise by spinning it off onto the handheld game systems. This isn't Guitar Hero On Tour on the Nintendo DS,...

Don't be pessimistic after the disastrous Guitar Hero On Tour games, Rock Band Unplugged is another fine example in a very young franchise. It looks like the real Rock Band but plays like Amplitude, the perfect combination as far as I'm concerned....

Product Specifications

Developed by Harmonix, the world's premier music videogame company, along with Backbone Entertainment, and published by MTV Games, Rock Band Unplugged brings the award-winning full band experience found in Rock Band and Rock Band 2 to a handheld console for the first time! Rock Band Unplugged challenges players to start a band and tour for fame and fortune while learning to master lead/bass guitar, drums and vocals - only this time as a one man band! The unique multi-track game design combines the overall artistic look, functionality and customization options of the Rock Band games, while also featuring enhanced options tailored specifically for the unique abilities of the PSP. Control all four instruments at once by hitting the colored gems in time with the musical tracks - but you must switch between tracks and maintain note streaks for all four instruments to keep your one man band alive.
