Rock Band: Unplugged
When I first got this game yesterday, I had no idea it was going to be so complex. The game has you playing all four instruments at once. Okay, I think that deserves a better explaination. All the instrument tracks are on the screen at the same time. You must complete strings of notes called Phrases. Each time you complete a Phrase, then the track you just completed that Phrase on temporarily goes blank. You can switch between instrument tracks, except during a Guitar Solo by pressing the L and R buttons. Easy mode only has green and yellow notes to play, so if this sounds confusing, start on that. All the instrument tracks are set up like Guitar and Bass and everything is controled with the normal PSP buttons which are amazingly responsive considering that this is the weirdest idea for a PSP game I've ever heard of. The graphics are really good and the customization factor is almost as good as the console version. All in all, I thought this was quite a pleasant surprise! I'm a fan of the console Rockband, so trust me when I say this is well worth picking up! Long Live Rock N Roll!
Rock Band meets Frequency
At first I didn't think anything about this game when I first heard about it as I did not have a PSP yet. Once I realized they released a bundle pack that came with this game I decided to get it. The game play reminds me of Frequency with track switching which is very nice. The track switching adds in some extra challenge since you are playing all instruments. If you want to play just 1 instrument you can with band practice mode which is also quite fun. If you want a real challenge, band survival mode is right for you. In band survival mode all tracks are going all at once and you must switch through them in order to keep from failing. If you are new to games like Frequency then it will take a little bit to get used to pressing the buttons and switching tracks when needed. Only complaint I have is taking the time to unlock all the songs but that is just like the original rock band games so I can live with that. If you like any of the rock band or guitar hero series I would definitely give this game a try.
i got this game with my PSP back a few years ago and i really liked this game, it's different from the other rock bands because you don't have to but extremely expensive fake instruments. It is fun but it gets boring after a while.
Amazingly awesome!! This game is, I think the best game I've played so far in the PSP!! I love how challenging it is and how difficult some songs can be, the song variety is normal, cuz it's a tiny game and 40 some songs are just about good for a small console. I love the graphics, I think it's my favorite part of the game, because as you know you can create your own band, so I created mine and believe it or not, my character as me, looks just like me!! Really!! My sisters, who I added in the band, also look like them! And I think that's awesome! I love Rock and some of my favorite songs are in Rockband Unplugged like "the middle" "miss murder" and (white wedding(part 1) oh and Jackson Five "abc"! how cute!! It's kind of hard, I wont say it's not because the controls may be hard to control, well it was for me. But the point of this review is that is awesome and I dont think I'll change games for a while... ROCKBAND ROCKS!
So much better than i thought it would be!
When I first got this game, I was pretty sure it would be fun, but I was a little nervous. People said the controls got some taking used to and this was my first rock band game. I had played two other Guitar Hero games but i heard they were really different. My friends were right, it was ten times better. The game is amazing. You can start your own band and go on tour. The controls are a little tough but it has a really easy tutorial that takes about 5 minutes. After that you're on your own. You customize four different members of the band. The members include a bassist, a drummer, a vocalist (also known as a singer), and a guitarist. You go through the song by playing every instrument at once. You play a part of the song called a phrase, and then the instrument plays itself. Then you switch off the a new instrument and do the cycle again. Its really fun and really, really, addicting! i recommend this to almost anyone.
good for the price
the songs are really good (btw my favorite one is carry on my wayward son :) ) i just dont like the switching tracks to much but the songs themselves and the solos are great i dunno i dont think it was a waste of money at all it has a lot of songs and gigs and well its just that ten bucks aint too bad...
This game was my 1st game for my PSP. As I opened it i presumed it would be boring, and dull, as most handheld music games are. When you first start to play the game, the controls are a bit clunky and weird, but as I started it felt more comfortable. I started playing for 5-10 minutes, but it then started to to turn into hours. I was a one man band. You are able to create your own custom band, and tour the world. If you have played the original Rock Bands, you would know what it would be like. The song selection is a bit weird, as I found myself playing some classics, but most of it was songs I have never heard. You switch between each instruments with the triggers, almost as if you are juggling the instruments. You play each segment, then switch then the recent segment continues to play. I would pay every penny for this game for hours upon hours of hardcore rocking out on your PSP.
This is my favorite psp game so far! I have never played such an amazing game like this one before, it that game that when i have had my fill of medal of honor, orlittle big planet or twisted medal this game is there to play and loved this game imediatley. A must buy for casual gamers!
Worst game ever
Rock band unplugged is the worst game ever made, no Peripherals like guitar hero on tour, no good songs, and you have to switch instruments, why can't you play just one instrument like on the console versions? any ways, this game is a waste of my time. Its not even that challenging, on easy it shows you which buttons to press but after that it does not, but it just gets faster when you put it on a harder difficulty, graphics suck, I mean it looks like my little brother threw up all over my PSP's screen, Controls are dumb, using the face buttons on the PSP? come on... Interface sucks so bad, i don't even want to talk about it, responsiveness is ok, I mean its nothing to celebrate about. Sound is so overrated, I would rather listen to babies cry than this, song list is dumb, i mean come on... Tenacious D?!?!? Pffft they are such a mediocre band.
if you love rock band, than get this game!!
i first got my psp, and i got this game and another one, i played this first and loved it! the graphics is great for a handheld!! the gameplay is awesome, some songs you wanna head bang to but u will mess up if you do! the song selection is great. it has 41 songs on the game in all, more that you can download, but they have rock, classic rock, metal, and pop rock! great game for all music goers! one thing is different, you have to play all the instruments, but that makes it harder and better! i played this game for two hours straight, and the tour mode is like the ps3. it took me bout a week to beat, but if you play it nonstop, bout three days. so it keeps you busy!! :)
