Excerpt: Become a rock star, without the practice! Since Harmonix released their first music game ‘Frequency’ for the PS2 back in 2001, they have remained the king of rhythm games. Introducing the ‘Guitar Hero’ franchise and giving us a lot more entertainment with a guitar controller than a dance mat ever could. They then decided it was time to do the next big thing, stop focusing on just the guitar, and focus on the whole band experience.
Pros: Fantastic audio quality, Great soundtrack, Can be played over and over and over…
Cons: Drums are bloody loud, No single player tour mode,
Excerpt: Duuuuuuude…. From the makers of Karaoke Revolution and Guitar Hero comes the highly anticipated Rock Band. At its core, this rhythm game is deceiptively simple: you have a controller with a couple of buttons of different colors, and notes scroll on the screen along with the music. You have to hit the buttons in time. That’s pretty much it.
Pros: The ultimate party game, Good intro to music, Great drum emulation, Good musical selection especially for the drums
Cons: Songs are generally especially dull for the singer, Steep price, Amateurs of the Guitar Hero series will find the guitar easy, Consistently bad bonus songs
Conclusion: Rock Band hat den H�rtetest bestanden und beweist sich als ad�quater Konkurrent zum bereits legend�ren Activision-Stoff. Die Band-Action ist wirklich fantastisch, das Online-Angebot dank st�ndiger Updates tendenziell ein Dauerbrenner und auch die Abwechslung, die durch die unterschiedlichen Instrumente geboten wird, nicht zu verachten. Nat�rlich ist der Preis f�r die Komplettausstattung unheimlich hoch, weshalb die Investition gut �berlegt sein sollte.
Pros: Super Spielkonzept, Geile Band-Action, Reichhaltiges Online-Angebot, Das Drumkit verprügeln
Cons: Gewöhnungsbedürftige Songliste, Hoher Preis für die Hardware
