5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it 25 Jun 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Like many others I was incensed with the price for Rock Band, but still intended to buy it as I am a massive fan of the Guitar Hero games.

I'm glad I took the plunge, because the whole experience is incredible. The track listing is infinitely superior to that of Guitar Hero, and playing with your mates is amazing!

Another great part about this is the amount of money that I've actually SAVED by having some mates over on a friday night and staying in playing this all night with a few beers, rather than going out and spending ridiculous amounts in London. 5 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars For those about to rock... 11 Nov 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Alright, so people have been complaining about the price, 180, which is admittedly hard to swallow but what you're getting for the price is not just the game (or I would certainly hope it isnt just the game)

You get:
-A Fender Stratocaster plastic guitar
-Drums
-A Mic
-The Game

Now, you're probably thinking "so why should I shell out 180 if I'm only getting three peripherals", well, I'll tell you why. This game is AMAZING as both a single player and party game, it includes a vast array of songs, and also features downloadable songs which you can use to expand the music library, the instruments are about as well made as you can get, with the exception of the guitar, which feels a bit cheap. The drums last a while, but dependant on how hard you hit them.

So, the songs, most of them are masters, with the exception of:
-Run to the Hills
-Tom Sawyer
-Paranoid

Now, the covers are generally good, Paranoid is although it doesn't have Ozzy singing. Tom Sawyer is good and the cover artist does a good job in trying to replicate Geddy Lee's voice, it should also be noted that the original version of Tom Sawyer is available as DLC, as is the original version of Run to the Hills. Now we come to Run to the Hills, I don't know which band covered the song, but the tempo is all over the place, it has random parts where the song speeds up and overall doesn't stay consistent.

Apart from the cheap feel of the peripherals this is an awesome game, so good in fact that I still have my copy now, which apparently is worth quite a bit (still), my advice, get the game.

PS: If you have the guitar hero controller (guitar) you can just get the standalone game, it'll work with the GH guitar)

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 25 Aug 2008
By D. Ian
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is simply amazing. In my view much better than Guitar Hero. Why?
The amount of content available for download is outstanding, they release at least 3 new songs every week and throw in an album every now and then. Plus the tracks are cheaper than Guitar Hero tracks (and you're getting 4x you're moneys worth due to the amount of instruments).
The gameplay is better, everything you wish Guitar Hero did back in the day Rock Band does and so much more; for instance the goofy circular dome things that represent notes in Guitar Hero are replace with sleaker and more precise bar.
Compatibility. Every guitar for GH will work on Rockband but not vice versa (GH refused to do this so Activision are to blame). Also 90% of the tracks you have for Rock Band 1 you will be able to play on in Rock Band 20.

At the end of the day Guitar Hero really have had their pants pulled down over this one, makes you wonder why didn't they think of this? No need to rant about the pricing of the bundle either, they explained on the official RB website that the difference in price between the US bundle and the UK bundle was due to the fact that everything game-wise (inaccurate explanation i know) costs more to make/ship/sell/whatever over here. So don't boycott this and miss out when you could be rocking out with you're friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Game Review, not price 20 July 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Since I'm reviewing the game itself, I would say that the price of the peripherals is terrible, but if you should choose to boycott it, the developers may cancel further shipping.

I rate the game a 5 star in terms of fun. The guitar segments of the game have a guitar-hero feel, with improved bass gameplay to suit the backups in your new virtual band. Single player is therefore essentially Guitar Hero, minus the encores and purchased bonus songs (you must complete a bonus setlist to unlock these).

Fans of any songs in the game will definately enjoy vocals, even though working through the single player vocals can be tiring, and you probably won't find yourself going back to sing a lot like the other two.

The real bulk of the package and the reason to pick up Rock Band in the first place is the drums. This is because the idea of a drumming game has never been properly done before (unless you count bongo drums as a form of drumming, which I sincerely hope you don't). As with the Guitar, the setlist works from easy to hard. I found that the easiest difficulty to start off with was medium. It may differ, because if you're a good drummer, I'd hit hard straight away.

When the whole band comes together, though, you experience something you've never experienced in a video game before: social cooperation. You won't all be staring blankly at the screen, you'll be cheering, thrashing on the overdrive and hammering the big rock ending to seal your band's work to an overall score that you will all look back on and be proud of. And with the 360's DLC, there's a new song/pack/album every week!

So in conclusion, pick it up, rock it, try everything, form a band, seal some achievements, and carry it on until Guitar Hero: World Tour hits shops this October.
