After wearing out the beatles wii rock band game over Christmas, we got this Lego Rockband game. I looked at the other 'rock band' games, but did not really know any of the songs on them. This one was bought for the fact that we knew the songs. It is more than just that though. My children have made up their own characters and had lots of fun creating themselves in Lego on screen. It works the same as the beatles rock band stuff. Singing/drums/guitar etc....If you don't already own a rock band set, but have guitar hero, then the buttons on the guitar are the same. We have both guitar hero games and guitar hero guitars, and now have the rock band stuff. I like them both. But it is far more fun playing in a group, all having an instrument each, and there are so many songs that you WILL know on this lego rock band game that you won't really need to look at the words to sing along. We have not done the 'story' on the game yet...we are too impatient and just have gone straight into playing songs of our choice. If only there were more wii rock band games that are with popular songs. I think the 'lego style freddie mercury' and the 'lego version of iggy pop' are hilarious.
Would deff say BUY IT if you fancy a laugh and a change from beatles wii game.
