Rock Band 3 - Game Only
Great Fun For The Whole Family!
What a blast. I bought this game and the keyboard for it and it's a lot of fun. I'm a family man and this game is great for the wife and kids to join in and spend an evening rocking out. Also, my wife and I have thrown dinner parties followed by a couple of hours of Rock Band. I don't enjoy it nearly as much for solo play. It's just so perfect for groups. I haven't tried the harmonizing yet as I only own one microphone but I think another couple of microphones are going to be on order soon. It's just a blast to play in a group. The graphics are decent but that's not what you buy the game for. It's not going to blow your mind like God of War III eye candy. That's not to say the graphics are bad. They are good for what the game is. I really enjoy this series and hope they continue making the games and the instruments. The only instrument I've played on pro level is the keyboard. It's really quite a bit of fun to try out. Overall, I'd say if you like to have friends over or have a family this is a great game for you.
Nice try Shadowdemon
Did you not read the whole paragraph? Not only are there 80 new songs on the RB3 disk, all RB1 & 2 game disc songs can be used, plus DLC. Me and the guys I play w/ will have well over 700 songs going into RB3. No way Guitar Zero can touch RB on song list, period. I don't think the graphics are any better or worse than GH. Besides its a music game, not a FPS, or RPG, graphics are secondary to gameplay, and RB beats GH there too. Sorry, Song list, game play, not to mention better instruments, conclusion - RB = kick aS$, GH = fail.
I get chills just THINKING about this game! XD I cannot wait for it, and I have already preordered it. Being a former pianist, I'm excited for the keyboard peripheral, and I'm totally psyched for guitar and bass pro mode (since I'm learning guitar now and would like to learn bass).
I only hope that they kept the items and hairstyles and faces from the old games, just maybe modified them to be more realistic...I fell in love with the options and just hope they're still available, and plus like some variety, haha. I love the loading screen things though...totally want to see my guys interacting and getting their gig ready. XD
This is the only game release I've ever really followed in my life, so I'm super excited!
Rock Band Still the Best in the Industry
Better Graphics then Guitar hero as always, anyone who says otherwise must prefer blocks for heads or something... And Rocks bands music library DOES dwarf Guitar heroes. Look past the stuff on the disc, if the disc came with 10 songs I'd still get it over Guitar Hero. Rock band has over 1500 songs you can download and play and are on track to top 2k this year, real songs, not user created gibberish, Guitar hero might achieve that number sometime next decade at the rate they are going... Harmonix (the creators of Rock Band) also created Guitar Hero, they are the true talent in the music genre, end of story. I can't wait for Rock Band 3, so many awesome additions to the genre, the real guitar and the added keyboard look like a blast. Harmonix are the innovators in the genre for music games and always has been. Anyone I personally know that's played both prefer's Rock Band for the obvious reasons.. Long live Rock Band! ; )
Maybe you should learn to read better...The description clearly states the game has over 2000 songs from 80 different bands, including ones never before seen on band games. With all of these extra songs as well as the new instruments and gaming modes, this game is going to be crazy!
Most innovative game I've ever played.
Rock band 3 is a huge step forward in music games. To combine real instrument teaching into a game, is something I have been waiting for a long time. From what i've played so far the pro keyboard mode is awesome. The best teaching tool I've used so far, I tried the books and videos in the past. Always got bored or put it off due to losing interest. So far i've made noticable improvements and am having fun. The setlist isn't as bad as some say, they were chosen for reasons. Their will be future dlc songs anyways so the variety will change over time.
the greatest music game in our life time
Instruments: although we are getting tired of stocking our homes with A LOT of plastic instruments. I believe rock band 3 would be one of the reasons to add another instrument to the collection sadly. however, if you consider it, the new keyboard in rock band 3 will function as a standard keyboard as well so technically we are investing on a real instrument. and with the pro mode, gamers will be able to learn how to play REAL instruments, so thats another plus for adding new instruments to the collection (again sadly). Song variety: as for songs, true guitar hero does have 90+on-disc songs on their future title, rock band has in fact one of the largest music libraries in the market today and is expanding every week thanks to weekly updates and rock band network. also, the songs from past rb1 + 2 will be exportable to rb3. in other words, even w/o the downloadable songs, loyal rock band owners(gamers who owned both rb1 + 2) will hav a total of 200+ songs!!!! CONCLUSION: with many more features that cant be fully explained, rock band 3 looks to be a great game for the next level of music games!!!!
Game=flat out awesome. no music game beats it. it has some of the best music from all genres. road challenges and career goals are challenging, creative, and all around fun. 83 great songs that everyone will enjoy. so to the creators of rock band 3, you guys did a heck of a job thinking WAY outside the box
Have in hand and love it! Better then the previous ones.
Not what I hoped for.
As a Rock Band enthusiast I was expecting the second coming of Christ with Rock Band 3. What I got was poor graphics that were a huge down grade from Rock Band 2. The character creation mode is just outrageous, it's impossible to make a character that doesn't look like he's addicted to meth or has been taking steroids for the past year. The roadtrip mode which I assume was made to replace world tour mode was simply too short. Also the lack of online battles was a major downer. I really miss the money aspect of the game. Put simply I pre-ordered this game played it for 1 week hoping it would get better but it didn't. I have beaten the game and gotten all possible achievements that you don't need pro-guitar and pro-drums for.
