Rock Band - Game Only
Philly Rock Band Demo
The Rock Band crew came to the University of Pennsylvania to demo the game. I gotta say, it's incredibly fun. The "solo keys" at the base are a great touch as solos feel so much more powerful, but they are a bit small, but I suppose that's realistic. The drums are fun and intuitive but I have to say, the foot pedal is inclined way too high and is very uncomfortable. As a concensus, most people had a burning shins after just one song. The singing model is done well, but still, most people can't sing so it ends up just being funny. Overall, if you're a guitar hero fan, this will take a bit of getting used to, but it is fantastic. P.S. the Guitar looks incredible. I have a Fender Stratocaster and it was like looking at a mini version of it, all the knobs were almost identical.
I can not wait for this game. The track list is amazing and it supports the Guitar Hero Controllers. I am not going to buy anything but the disc and then just use it as a sequel to Guitar Hero 3. New songs and a new look with no new hardware!
I had heard of Rock Band and what stood out was the rocker creator so i figured why not... but I was very disappointed Rock Band had almost none of the features I had hoped. No rocker creator, No online play, No Rock Shop. The ps3 and the 360 had more of a challenge with fans and stars but the Ps2 version had none of that. if you have a Ps2 GH3 not rock band. there were good songs but a little extra futures would have been nice so if your thinking of getting a ps3 or 360 i recommend it the game with be a hell of fun. I got a 360 and got rb2 there are now over 500 song that you can get and I have my own rocker. I go online constantly and face other people it is a hell of a lot better than the game I got for the ps2 one good thing was that if you ever wanted to upgrade to the ps3 you wouldn't have to buy a whole new system!
get excited of rock band
rock band features some of the coolest song ever as you play with your band in carrer mode or play solo carrer and also multiplayer this game has it all you can actually feel like your band is palying for real and you get to pick to paly the guitar , bass, drums, and vocals this is one of best games ever i played a demo of it was crazy everyone should get this game its all the intrusment you love to play all in one
Don't get too excited...
Currently, I only own a PS2, and the PS2 version won't have downloadable content or online play. I am NOT knocking this game. I'm sure it'll still be fun to play without these options, but the PS2 just doesn't have what it takes to handle them. Bite the bullet and get a next-gen system if you want the full experience. I probably will.
Can get repetitive
Rock band is a good game, fun to play on the instruments and do the singing and all that, but it can get repetitive. The songs and the videos, mostly the videos, I didn't notice at first, but it plays the same video every time you do the song. I'm not saying not to get the game because of this, if you want a band game, this is cheap and fun to play when your bored.
I'm a drummer in real life and like guitar. Rock Band is gonna inspire alot of people to become a band. its also gonna be fricken fun! omg i cant wait lol ima get the complete bundle and everything. dude. when this comes. the worlds goin to change
Why even bother?
Why even bother wasting time, making this for the PS2, theres no live, unlike the PS3 and 360 version. If your buying this for PS2, not worth it, get a Xbox 360, and have some real Live fun with your buds.
