Rock Band - Game Only
i think this game is awesome
the sound is great the graphics are awesome and the songs are great
i understand i am a musician
i understand you guys complaining about thinking it's wastefull to play a fake guitar when it is much more satisfying to learn the real thing i play guitar and i understand believe me, but come on guys like others have said it is just a game besides even though it is just a few buttons it develops good hand eye coordination and timing which i believe would help anyone trying to actually learn how to play, just like driving games help a person be prepared to learn to drive easier i mean come on was anyone knocking GTA cause you weren't really killing people? like you should skip the game and just buy a real gun no i don't think so and in this game the drum set seems pretty real and the mic actually judges your singing pitch so i think there is some reallity to it.
Better than Guitar Hero?
I am still a fan of GH's songs and controllers, but the atmosphere of RockBand is awesome, I love team-based games, and this one is the most fun with a bunch of friends at parties! Whip out the microphone and your in for a few great moments. The guitar is not as easy (for me) to control as the GH Les Paul or Xplorer, but hey, I just plug up my GH controller and play all the songs on RB. It really gives you optimal customization of your characters and band "career." Providing a good variety of songs, from pop to grunge and everything in between. So, is RockBand a better option than Guitar Hero? Overall, I'd say yes. I still love GH's songs and controllers, but Rockband definetly wins on the customization and overall multiplayer experience.
This obviously was the first game in the series , and the first game to introduce the "drum Controller set". It was an instant hit, even though a lot of the original drum sets were not very durable. But the music setlist is very good, both for younger and older genterations. Plus they offer so many songs to buy that i can't even count that high!
Guitar Hero is WAY better!
Rock Band's singing ain't half bad, but drums and guitar just suck! I play expert on singing and easy on drums just because of the stupid footpad, guitar is a little more complicated. On guitar hero I can play on expert but rock band has such crappy responsiveness i have to play on medium. Also the bottom of the guitar is such a stupid idea. If any thing they should have made it part of the original game. Both sound and video are so off (by two or three seconds) that getting a one hundred is nearly impossible. Also the frets on the screen are terribly hard to see, sometimes I miss notes just because I can't see any notes. Guitar hero is so precise and pinpoints all of the notes while, well, what does rock band do? It just doesn't respond properly. All in all I'd definitely recommend guitar hero over rock band. Oh, and did I mention the price?...Yeah that's what I thought.
Got this the day it came out, it was better than guitar hero by far because of the songs and the fact it had drums. This game is amazing and don't put it down because it came out a couple years ago so what if the graphics aren't halo. Great game and I recomend it.
Just have some fun people!
I love reading the idiots who have these holier than thou attitudes like "Go buy a real guitar, I think it is funner anyway". People have fun with this, even the actual rock bands out there enjoy this game, and if you are so damn good at playing the "real" instruments, why are you waisting your time writing comments for a game and why aren't you out trying to land a record deal? Everyone should just have fun, I play the keyboard, but I still love playing these games because it takes you out of reality and lets you play songs that you have grown up loving or songs you love now. It isn't stopping anyone's creativeness in fact it has only made my songwriting more creative, because you start listening to every part of the song, not just the lyrics. I think these are the best things to happen to video games, it gets you up and moving instead of slamming on buttons all day.
Best Music game ever!
This game is the best music game ever. Guitar Hero 2 may stand up to it but not Guitar Hero 3.I mean guitar hero 4 on tour looks pretty good but with rock band putting out new songs like evry week or so and guitar hero comming out with songs like once a month it pwns it truely it does. Rock bands drums are great but the foot pedal takes a lot of abuse so becareful with that. The mic. is very cool when singing the who, and iron maiden is great. During Won't get Fooled againthe synthisiser break ends Pete Townshend actually jumps and slides on stage like in concert. it is very reallistic .Most of the songs are preformed by the original artists. Then there is the hardest song called greengrass and high tides which is so hard on expert on the guitar. Then Run to the hills on drums in almost imposible, but some people can beat it. So truely it's the best music game ever.
Best music game ever!
This is my favorite music game in the world. It has a great song selection and if you get bored with the songs then all you have to do is go to the rock band music store and get more! The graphics are awsome and the sound is beautiful! This game is fun to play alone but is really awsome when you play it with friends and family! This game is great for parties or to anyone who loves music!
GH is better, but barely
I think GH is better (only 2 and 3) because of songs, but not by far. This game has alot of great songs perfect for anyone (but "through the fire and flames" by Dragonforce tops off GH3). I reccomend you get this game if you like GH 2 and 3.
