Legend of Grimrock

Hooked Gamers
4 April 2012
  • Conclusion: Legend of Grimrock starts off a little ponderously, almost unwelcoming. Whereas its inspiration Eye of the Beholder treated the player to colourful red walls upon entering, Grimrock’s look more realistic and, as a result, a bit dull. The bestiary is a little less varied too and initially at least, there seems to be a lot less to do.
  • Pros: Old-school role-playing with a modern day spin.
  • Cons: The realistic colours make the game look a little dull.

Expert Review

Game Informer
22 December 2009
  • Summary: I should confess up front that I got hooked on beat-matching games because of Frequency and Amplitude. With that in mind, it's not hard for me to find a lot to love in Unplugged. Rapid-fire track switching adds a singular level of challenge that easily makes up for the lack of a dedicated guitar peripheral. Increased difficulties add that addictive curve that keeps you coming back to improve, and perfecting a song on expert is as hard as it is on the console games.

Fun, challenging music game for PSP, with teen lyrics.

Common Sense Media
9 November 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this music game is rated "Teen" for some potentially offensive rock lyrics and cartoon-like musicians who can be suggestively dressed.

Rock Band Unplugged Review

16 October 2009
  • Excerpt: We've had Guitar Hero on the DS, complete with odd add-on peripheral, but until now Rock Band has remained a home console game only. Portable gamers wanting a Rock Band fix while out and about need fret no more, though, as Rock Band Unplugged brings the band experience to the PSP - and there's no awkward peripheral in sight. It might sound like a recipe for a dull, uninspired game, but Unplugged is easily one of the best PSP games of 2009.

Rock Band: Unplugged

Playstation Illustrated
14 October 2009
  • Excerpt: Imagine Rock Band shrunk down and injected into your PSP. Well, that's what Rock Band: Unplugged looks like. You have your customizable band members, with a multitude of clothing and instrument options, the same look and feel as Rock Band from the consoles, the manager/staff element that allows you to hire different staff members to give you bonuses in popularity or income or access to certain venues... it's all there. Mostly.

Rock Band Unplugged

The Gamers Temple
10 October 2009
  • Excerpt: If you've ever played the PS2 games Frequency or Amplitude, you'll recognize where Harmonix looked for inspiration in taking Rock Band mobile. Since Harmonix created both of those games, in a way they've come full circle since their early efforts in creating the musical rhythm game genre.

Review: Rock Band Unplugged (Sony PSP)

Diehard GameFAN
26 September 2009
  • Summary: Rock Band Unplugged doesn’t stray too far from the beaten path (and some might say it only combines two different Harmonix games), but it offers a lot to experience and is just plain fun. Backbone Entertainment and Harmonix have essentially taken the Playstation 2 version of Rock Band 2 and changed it up to not only make it playable on the PSP but also freshen up the series’ game play.
