Rock Band 3

 

Rock Band has been a genre defining experience ever since it made its debut back in 2006. No other Music-based videogame has captured the masses worldwide quite like Rock Band. No longer was it all about battling the computer-controlled A.I. characters...

Two years on from the release of Rock Band 2, the much-anticipated sequel finally has hit the shelves, offering not only a new instrument but the possibility of changing the face of rhythm games as we know them and maturing the genre for a new...

The music industry is filled with albums we'll never forget. The Beatle's Abbey Road defined a generation in transition. Michael Jackson's Thriller announced the arrival of a new standard. Nirvana's Nevermind was the voice of a changing American...

There's no reason to unlock a slew of songs. I would like to see the ability to unlock all customization options, like t-shirts and gear. Come on, I want to outfit my 80 pound, afro sporting guitar player in the latest duds!

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 (Xbox 360)

 

The visuals aren't mindblowing, but look good. Character models aren't as cartoony, but do maintain their same stylized looks. Animation is gorgeous, and characters interact on stage as they should, though the game still doesn't animate between...

Same winning brand of addictive gameplay; excellent track list; solid new instruments, with the keyboard being the highlight; innovative Pro mode changes literally everything; migration of additional franchise innovations, such as vocal harmonies;...

New instruments are pricey; steep learning curve for Pro mode, which might prevent players from committing to it; game is still technically four player, though it allows for seven people to play along

Rock Band 3 review

 

The music genre hasn’t changed a lot over the course of the last five years. Rock Band 3 attempts a few changes that could make this game stand out from the crowd. First, it adds a new instrument (the keyboard), but it also adds a “real” guitar. That’s...

While I was a big fan of The Beatles: Rock Band, I do not think there is any doubt that Rock Band 3 is the best game in the proper Rock Band franchise (i.e. 1, 2 and 3). You get 83 songs, as well as all of the downloads that you previously purchased...

Rock Band 3- Wii

 

Rock Band 3 on the Wii is essential, but only in certain circumstances. Namely, if you don't have a PS3 or 360 and you want a brilliant, fully-featured music game. Harmonix has done more than we thought possible with this version, and they need to be...

Rock Band 3 is about as complete a music game as you could hope. Do we recommend using the new instruments? Not necessarily. Does not using them limit the game? Absolutely not. Stick with the instruments you have and buy the game without the trimmings,...

If you've still got a passion for the genre, or you're seriously considering furthering your understanding of the instruments with Pro mode, Rock Band 3 might just be the most important rhythm game to date.

Hopeful musicians will find a new way to learn, but this will still require practice and dedication on their part in order to advance. Casual gamers however, will find little to criticize, and the numerous tweaks and improvements make this THE music...
