Rock Band? Yes, Please! :: My Short Review


It's that time again for my random short review. Today, like a lot of you I picked up my special edition bundle of Rock Band! I got home from work at 5pm today, and didn't stop playing until around midnight. I LOVE IT! It's exactly what I was hoping for.

I am so glad that there aren't nearly as many 'As Made Famous By' songs, as most of those in my opinion suck.

I love playing the drums, as I feel they did a really great job with them. It's pretty easy to just pick up and learn to play, granted my ankle's a bit sore since I'm not used to stepping on things like that, but that's just a small price to pay.

I also love the karaoke for the vocals! I've played numerous karaoke games, in fact any of them I can get my hands on (even the piece of shit known as Boogie). I've played them all from the worst to the best. The Karaoke Revolution series always rocks my socks. This I feel is a lot like them. So far for me, it's very easy to hit the pitches and such that I need to. Granted I've only played on easy and medium, but I intend to go further eventually.

I also love the cowbell. What could be more awesome than singing 'Don't Fear the Reaper' and getting to bang a cowbell right along with it. Playing that song so much is probably why I damn near bruised a bone in my hand tonight.

I've only played a couple songs with the guitar, and so far I like it. I haven't gotten a chance to try out the solo part of the neck, but the normal part I dig so far. I'll probably update my review once I have played more with this.

But all in all I absolutely LOVE it! It was totally worth the $170 for me.

Hope you all liked it as well!
