WII INSTRUMENT CONTROLLERS REQUIRED- this game will *not* work with regular Wii-Motes

Summary: I thought I would write a very quick review to alert other customers that in order to use this game, you *must* have an instrument controller for your Wii. It was a very disappointing situation when my child received this and we all sat down to play and no go- you are required to have the guitar, drumset, and microphone in order to play the game.
Summary: ***This game CANNOT be played with just a Wiimote it requires additional equipment.*** You will need at least a microphone or wii guitar to play and you can add a drum set & second guitar if you like. We purchased our microphone at a used game store for thirteen dollars and are using guitars from the Guitar Hero Warriors of Rock, G.H. World Tour, and an older G.H. Les Paul. We are also using the drum set from G.H. World Tour.
Summary: We purchased this game for my daughter's ninth birthday and she loves playing it with her friends. The super easy mode is great for younger children who do not have the patience to learn all of the more complecated controls. The game does work with the Band Hero drums, microphone, and guitar. I think this is a great entry level game for the wii, and it has enough to keep adults entertained when playing as a family.
Summary: Answer: yes, and it's still entertaining as ever! In the game, there is a fun story mode that you can play through that has events, unlike other versions of RB. And I read other reviews that the songs are too short. Not true. Lego Rock Band has two song modes: short and standard. One of my gripes is that there's no pre-song noise most of the time. I don't know if it is due to my specific disk or if it was a glitch in the game.
Summary: We are a family of amateur electric rockers. Lego rock band is much more user friendly than the others. We use it with Band Hero and the only thing is the drum set up is a little different but it still works. My five year old loves guitar hero games but always got boo'd off the stage before the song was barely half over. I can set her to 'super-easy' and she can get through an entire song and thinks she "won".
