Rated 8 out of 10 A few bugs they should have worked out
Well our family got RB3 for Christmas and was excited to start throwing down on it. The graphics were excellent as well as song selection, game options and still being able to create a character. Unfortunately we had a bunch of family come into town who all love playing and the game wouldn't sync guitar, bass, drums, keyboard and two additional mics. I went through all instruments mode and the most i could get was three instruments. I contacted EA sports and spent over an hour trying to get everything linked up till finally we got all four plus mics hooked up. I retried to hook them all up once everyone was here and still couldnt do it even with hooking everything back up the same way. I'll keep trying on the harmonix website but this is a problem that should have been worked on prior to release. Also I've noticed that the mic is different as well not picking up certain lyrics can be difficult to use the tamborine. Yes i've double checked the lag settings on my system. Other than these issues I will always buy RB products. Always a hit in our home.!
Rated 8 out of 10 by nintendega Nintendega's Review for Rock Band 3 (Wii)
This game is cool and fun but not as fun as Rock Band 2. If your playing with a group, then this game would probley be perfect for you, but if your a loner type gamer like me than maybe not. The setlist is amazing and is the longist setlist yet. The new and revamped tour mode is really stupid and WAAAYY to short in my opinion, I beat it in 8 hours I kid you not. I really wished they could've kept the tour mode from RB2, but they didn't. Not much else I can say, this game is cool and all but its just not as good as the previous games in the series. If your looking for a good music game get Rock Band 2. If you'd ask me about this game, I would tell you to: Rent it first.
Rated 10 out of 10 Long live Rock band
I went to my local Gamestop and picked this game up at a midnight release I was so excited. I had Rock Band and Rock Band 2 for PS3 but then I sold my PS3 to afford some costly auto repairs. That left me with only a Nintendo Wii and I got a Rock Band 2 bundle for $99. The Wii was a HUGE difference. There were no song packs, you had to download each song individually mostly for 200 Wii Points ($2). Also, the Wii supports SDHC cards but Rock Band 2 Wii software did not so I was stuck with only 2 GB of memory. That was not enough for all the songs I eventually downloaded. Rock Band 3 to the rescue! It supporsts SDHC cards, and also has song packs available at the Music Store. The game itself plays so much better now also. The graphics are a lot better than Rock Band 2 was on my HDTV. The characters were so pixelated. Now, the game looks sharp, if you pause mid-song it rewinds about 3 seconds so you don't miss a note, you can change difficulty mid-song, and also allow no-fail mode. All things that should have been done a long time ago but better late than never! The setlist is really great. I have loved playing each Rock Band to become exposed to new types of music that I never really gave the time of day to before. All in all, a near perfect game. Thank you, Harmonix for making sure Wii owners are treated equally.
Rated 0 out of 10 by GotsTheRightGames NOOOO......
A good game (it looks like) but still these people are trying to weasel money out of gamers. You have to purchase all new istruments because of all the new features. Along with myself, I'm sure lots of people will buy this game, but if the developers were smart, some of the old instruments would b e compatible. Because of that, only absolutely dedicated and first timers will buy this game, instead of everyone.I mean if you rate this game series 3/5 (which is three quarters of everyone who plays) why would you want to buy 2 new guitars and a new set of drums for so much money? Could they atleast make them cheap?
Rated 10 out of 10 by SugaryDeath AMAZING GAME THAT ALL CAN ENJOY!
I have only had this game for a few days now and all I can say is that I absolutely love it! I can't get enough of this game to be truthful! The Rock Band series has an amazing addition to the family as this game has a more depth character creator, story line, graphics, song list, DLC, and impression on the player. At first I must admit it had some differences that I was not used to as I played Rock Band 2 so much. Though over time I must say that I have already gotten used to the controls and feel of the game. The online play is not all to different though instead of taking turns to pick a song after another the whole group gets to pick one song (or not) and create a song list that can be up to more than 7 songs in a row! I think thats really cool, though it can limit what level you want to play as you can't change difficulty through the setlist (or that I know of) so you may be on expert on a song you have yet to play >.< That can be harsh if you ask me. The song list is amazing! You have (to start off with) over 80 songs that come with the game and if you have Rock Band 2 or even had it for a short time, then you can transfer all your songs over and create the most epic song collection known to man on one simple disk! (This costs 1000 Wii points, but you know you want it! Its worth the money) Over all this game has everything that you could want and you will come back for more and more!
Rated 10 out of 10 by TheTalkingMan Outstanding!
I love this game; and shall always! I love music, and a lot of music on this game, such as Queen, Avenged Sevenfold, Marilyn Manson, is amazing! Indeed, this is challenging, and takes practice and skill, but wheh you get the hang of it, you'll love it! Getting old of the songs they start you off with? Then (with money) you can download songs from a ton of artists! I love this game, and if you love rock and alternative music, you will love this! But, I dislike that they used the censored version of The Beautiful People bu Marilyn Manson.
Rated 0 out of 10 keyboard??
i think they've turned enough instruments into plastic. for the keyboards they may as well have the option to hook up an actual electric keyboard to the console and play like that. and if they're gonna go through the trouble to add keyboards, they should at least make the super-fast scales and what-not accurate to the actual songs and actual major, minor, (etc.) scales and chords. they certainly did a great job with that on the guitar parts >:/ whatever. at least they have Dead End Friends by Them Crooked Vultures :)
Rated 9 out of 10 by Sinistra Great Game to Have!
I really enjoy this game. With all the DLC you can add to your set list you can have hours of play and not stop. The Challenge Mode is my fav of the game you unlock songs and are able to unock content within the game for your "Avatar" I haven't made the pros yet with the pro guitar and drumbs but its a good way to learn how to play guitar and drumbs . I would really recommend this game to anyone that wants to get their "Band On!" and have a great time
Rated 10 out of 10 by stefi51 Best Rock Band Yet!!!!!!
This is the probably the best Rock Band game yet. I love the new Pro mode on the instruments, it really teaches u a lot about them and how to play them. The songs in it are great. It is also awesome that they transfer all the DLC u have downloaded from the previous Rock Bands and put them on that disc so u wont even have to switch discs. I love that they added the keyboard instrument it is really fun. So this is a MUSY BUY for Rock Band fans like me!!!!!1
Rated 10 out of 10 by Skipper OK
The game is pretty good, not a big fan of guitar hero, so i Buy Rock Band 3, Its alot better the guitar hero and great songs. But it gets boring after a month. But The drums, they are the best! It teaches you drums like the beat, and now I play for my church and im really good, I never had a lesson, only Rockband taught me.
