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 (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...

Green Day: Rock Band

 

Do you like Green Day? Do you like Rock Band? OK good, we're done here.

I'm going to reiterate what I said at the beginning. If you like Green Day and Rock Band, go get this. If you're getting bored of playing fake instruments or you're just not a fan of the group, then don't expect to be won over. It's not as polished or...

Rock Band 3 hands-on preview

 

When Rock Band 3 was revealed at the end of the Green Day: Rock Band demo a few weeks ago, the teasing image of a piano/keyboard and three microphones for harmonies seemed to be the big improvements for the series following Rock Band 2. At E3 this past...

Green Day: Rock Band Preview

 

After achieving success with The Beatles, Harmonix attempts to strike twice with another popular band.

Green Day: Rock Band doesn't change the formula, but it does roll along with it and gives us plenty to savor from the radio-friendly punk rock trio. We'll see how the final game fares once it arrives in a couple of months.

Rock Band

 

Musical rhythm games have been a huge hit with gamers of all ages since Guitar Hero stormed onto the scene. In the past, emulating your favorite rock star was limited to showcasing your skills on a replica guitar controller. With the release of Rock...

Rock Band

 

"It's fun, but it's not the Rock Band experience. "

C'mon, it's Rock Band ; Although Guitar Hero had to contend with Rock Band on the 360 and PS3 formats for virtual music supremacy early in its release, Guitar Hero on the Wii was the only fix rhythm-loving, rock music fans could get for awhile. Two...

Hardcore fans, stay thee away ; It's entirely easy to boast about the accessibility of Rock Band on the Wii, especially for a user base which is, mostly, used to just having fun on their home console, without worry of hearing, "You suck, you noob!"...

Rock Band Wii Review

 

Rock Band's been creating living room legends out of Xbox 360, PS3 and PS2 owners for months, while Wii gamers have been patiently waiting to put together their own virtual band. At last, Nintendo fans can experience their own simulated rock-god...

Despite RB on the Wii being a definite downgrade from its next-gen console cousins, it’s hard to argue with the sheer amount of entertainment you’ll get out of it. As we said, if you’ve got a 360 or PS3, pick up one of those versions, or, better yet,...
