Excerpt: Until I played through Green Day: Rock Band , I didn't fully appreciate just how much of Green Day's music I enjoy. I'd listened through most of their albums a few times, but something had never quite clicked.
Excerpt: Wow. There are very few games that can leave you speechless and perhaps a little confused upon completion but Bayonetta is certainly one of them. Once you’ve hacked and slashed your way through the game you’ll have massacred hundreds of angels, ridden missiles across the ocean, tortured cherubs,...
Conclusion: Though I'm not the biggest Green Day fan out there, I have to say that I enjoyed the experience that this title brought. A little more effort could have been put into this title, including some additional dlc at some point down the road.
Summary: After a number of misses from its competition, last year Harmonix and MTV Games proved that it was possible to do a band-specific music game "right." The Beatles: Rock Band was an incredible journey through the band's career, approaching the material with tact, and a reverence for the music and...
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Unless you’ve been living in the deepest, most remote cave on the planet, you’ve likely tried, or at least heard of, Rock Band (or its older brother/nemesis Guitar Hero).
Conclusion: Green Day: Rock Band is not the game it could have been. It's also not a bad game in any way, and whatever gripes I might have had about the lack of unlockables or sense of progression or lopsided discography are pushed aside upon playing.
Summary: In what is essentially a well-done track pack, Green Day Rock Band features the long-running band Green Day in all of their pop-punk glory. The game features 47 songs total, including the entire “Dookie”, “American Idiot”, and “21st Century Breakdown” albums as well as a few other choice songs and...
Excerpt: Green Day Rock Band has lot to prove, especially after the Beatles showed how to do it right just months before. As the series' second stab at a band-themed game, Harmonix is hoping for just as successful an outing with one of the most popular acts in recent memory.
Summary: Green Day: Rock Band is a simple attempt at capturing the essence of a popular American punk rock band. This is a must buy for Green Day fans, but it offers nothing new to the music rhythm game genre.
Pros: All of Dookie is included, Provides a fine tribute for hardcore Green Day fans
Cons: Not as impressive as The Beatles: Rock Band, That there is nothing new to sink your teeth in to, The fact the game does little to attract casual Green Day fans
