5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic game, 17 Mar. 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: LEGO Rock Band - Game Only (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I bought this game soon after we bought a full set for Guitar Hero 6: Warriors of Rock, with the drums, guitar and microphone. My boyfriend was the one who wanted it and there weren't many songs I knew on there so I wanted something with some different songs on it.

I found this one and immediately thought it was a good idea. I knew quite a few of the songs and loved the Lego theme (my uncle collects Lego and I've always enjoyed playing with it).

I wasn't disappointed. There is a good range of songs with difficulty levels for each of the instruments. It's really easy to play by yourself or with friends. I really like that you can set the kick pedal on the drums to automatic with this game. Some of the songs are really quite hard if you've not had much experience with drums, and by setting that to auto, I could keep up with the other drums and learn those first without getting really bad scores.

The only downside with it, was that the drums on the game were slightly different to the ones on the set that came with guitar hero 6. There is no orange one in the game whereas there is on the set. However all the other drums remain in the correct order (moving from left to right) and so it's not too hard to adjust to it.

I would definitely recommend this if you like the songs that come with it. When we first got it we were on it for hours and didn't get bored. You can change around instruments and there are enough songs to keep you entertained for quite a while.

It is worth pointing out that the Rock Band games (the first of which was released in 2007) added vocals and drums (which had four pads) before the Guitar Hero series ("Guitar Hero: World Tour" was the first in that franchise to add voice and drums, and that did not come out until 2008, and they added the extra pad for that particular franchise, although the GH series also had a mode containing just four pads for those people that already had a Rock Band drumkit and did not want to shell out again). This is why the drums only have four colours in the "Rock Band" games.

In terms of downloadable content that is compatible with "Lego Rock Band", the Rock Band DLC that was released before Rock Band 3 came out in 2010 will be playable in it as long as the song is deemed family-friendly. Even the family-friendly songs from the first "Rock Band" game that were exportable from that game could be played in "Lego Rock Band".

One downside nowadays (at least, for those who have other titles in the "Rock Band" series) is that, while it was once possible to export all 45 songs from the XBox 360 and PS3 versions of "Lego Rock Band" to the core titles in the "Rock Band" series, now that this game has passed its fifth anniversary (it came out in November 2009), the licence that allowed that particular export has now expired and so it is no longer possible to export the songs.
