This review is from: Rockband 3 (PS3) (Video Game)
Rock Band 3 is simply a superior rythm game. The 83 song setlist is well varied, with lots of very well known songs with a few gems here and there, but also has those songs that you don't like, but this can't really be avoided. Adding to these 83 songs, the Rock Band Network has about 2300 songs ready for purchase and download, so there is bound to be something you like. The game is very organized and has a very smooth interface, and as always the frets look very good, as opposed to their Guitar Hero counterparts.
But which game should you buy? Guitar Hero or Rock Band? I have yet to try the newest Guitar Hero game, but I've owned countless in the past, and i must say that this triumphs them all. Adding the Keyboard controller and Pro modes into the mix, i would say that Rock Band is the game to get.
To clear any confusion; The Guitar Hero instruments work perfectly with Rock Band 3, the drumset can be modified to add the rock band orange cymbal in game with the click of a button, which is pretty useful. :)
