LEGO Rock Band

Video Game Generation
27 February 2011
  • Summary: I admit it, since Lego Rock Band was clearly aimed towards the younger gamer, I wasn’t too enthused about the prospect of it. Expecting an experience somewhat akin to that of We Cheer 2 (see my review), I was shocked to discover that not only was the tracklist not comprised solely of Disney “tweenie” stinkers, but that what it did contain was one of the best overall tracklists of any music simulation game barring Guitar Hero Rocks the 80’s .
  • Pros: Lego people, especially Lego versions of famous rock stars, are so damn cute!, One of the better song selections in the series, Amusing animation and cut scenes
  • Cons: Once again, no downloadable content for the Wii, Being forced to play the same few songs over and over, in “surpise” sets, “mystery” sets, “record an album” sets, “put on a benefit” sets, ad nausaeum before you can unlock a few new songs…which then get added to the endless conveyor belt.

LEGO Rock Band Review

  • Conclusion: Though LEGO Rock Band is solely a local single-player and cooperative multiplayer experience, the lack of online or competitive features don't seem to be a detriment anyway. The reasons to get this game are because you have young ones around that want to get into some Rock Band action, or because you want to augment your song list by an additional 45 tracks (though, you won't be able to play the rest of your collection with this game, and you won't be able to export...

  • Excerpt: You can tell a genre is starting to get old when they have to use LEGO characters to attract new customers. That's exactly what LEGO Rock Band is: an attempt at reaching a younger demographic with a franchise that (like Guitar Hero) is outliving its welcome. Sound harsh? Sure, but that is the first thing that came to mind when I heard that they were making this game. Now that it is actually out and I've played it, my thoughts haven't changed a whole lot.

  • Excerpt: Nicht nur die Macher von Guitar Hero schaffen es, ihr Franchise mit immer neuen Add-Ons am Leben zu erhalten. Auch die Rock Band-Sparte wird unregelmäßig mit neuen Ablegern beliefert, und diesmal handelt es sich um ganz besonderes Stück Software. Denn im Zuge der zahlreichen Lego-Spiele hat es diesmal auch das Musik-Genre getroffen, und herausgekommen ist Lego Rock Band.

  • Excerpt: Jusqu'à présent absent du support DS, Rock Band débarque enfin sur la console portable de Nintendo. Si elle a su devancer Guitar Hero sur PSP, la série doit cette fois passer après son concurrent direct sur DS, ce qui corse d'autant plus l'opération. Alors, prend-on autant de plaisir à jouer les rockeurs sur DS que sur les autres machines ?

  • Summary: Plastica, incastri e rock 'n roll. Lego Rock Band ironizza sulla musica senza trascurarla. Ma quanto c'è di Lego e quanto di Rock Band?

  • Conclusion: Was bleibt übrig, wenn man den ganzen Legocharme aus dem Spiel nimmt? Ein weiterer Ableger der Rockband-Serie und davon nicht mal ein Guter. Das Spiel schwächelt optisch durch seine schlecht aufgezwungene HD-Grafik und lässt das ganze ziemlich bescheiden aussehen. Soundtechnisch gibt es auch weniger erhabene Klänge zu begutachten, denn es fehlt einfach die Soundkulisse des Publikums, was den größten Teil des ganzen Feelings ausmacht von dem ein Spiel dieser Art lebt.
  • Pros: Viele neue Songs, Lego-Charme vom Feinsten
  • Cons: Keine Neuerungen, Schlechte Grafik, Viele Macken beim Sound

  • Conclusion: On prend un Rock Band traditionnel et on change simplement les décors par des briques emboîtées un peu partout. Des stars en LEGO qui sont assez bien réalisées et qu'on n’a pas trop de mal à reconnaître. Gros bémol, la tracklist de 45 titres insuffisants devant les autres jeux du genre sortis cette année. Néanmoins, on se situe pile poil dans un Rock Band, même aspect, même contenu, même plaisir de jouer.
