AC/DC Live: Rock Band Track Pack
Video Game Generation
3 February 2009
Summary: Do you like AC/DC? If yes, this pack is for you. If you’re not a fan, don’t bother. There’s really no meat to this game, and I’m not really sure why this was released in disc-only form outside of the obvious: Wal-Mart secured an exclusive release.
has excelled in the “platform” strategy, and allowing you to import these songs to the main game solves the
Pros: Can import the tracks into, Rock Band, or, Rock Band 2, Good selection of tracks, Great for AC/DC fans
Cons: Wal-Mart exclusive, Barely any features in the game, No AC/DC likenesses, Not for anyone that isn't an AC/DC fan, Should have been available on the online store
Excerpt: For me the big difference between the Rock Band and Guitar Hero franchises is the amount of downloadable content that is available. Rock Band has an insane amount of content available for any wannabe rocker to download. Not content with just providing DLC, Rock Band has also put out some track packs in the past. I was lucky enough to get an early copy of the most recent one, AC/DC Live: Rock Band Track Pack for the Xbox 360.
Conclusion: If you love this game as much as i did, then there is the option of transferring all 18 songs to your rock band disk, and all the songs will still work on the rock band track pack disk. The best thing about it? its free! so overall your buying 18 songs for £6.50, and if every song is normally priced at around £1/$1 then its possibly one of the best deals on Xbox.
Summary: If you like AC/DC, it's a 10/10! If you don't like them, it sucks! Clearly meant for fans of AC/DC or anyone who thinks they are decent. It's a track pack: not a full-fleshed out game. If you are expecting something like Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, you will be disappointed. There are 18 songs. You just play them. If you like the songs enough, you can export them to Rock Band or Rock Band 2.
Pros: It's Rock Band. And it's AC/DC (if you like them).
Cons: It's a bare-bones version Rock Band. And it's AC/DC (if you don't like them).
Excerpt: It started with Aerosmith, Guitar Hero: Aerosmith that is. Normal music games just weren't elite enough. Before long if you don't have your own music game, you're just not going to be cool enough. The newest of these is AC/DC Live: Rock Band Track Pack . Graphically, it is not exactly what I was expecting. One big noticeable thing is that the character creator is gone. If you enjoy making your characters, you'll just have to forget about that for now.
Conclusion: Being that this is the first AFL title for the Wii, I’ll let the developers off a little lightly with regards to the slightly sub-par player visuals and stuttered commentary. Hopefully these things will be more polished in coming seasons. And the reason for letting them off the hook is that the game is just so much fun to play.
Pros: You can play AFL on the Wii. Controls work extremely well to make an exiting and fun AFL game. All current players are available thanks to AFL licensing.
Cons: A few issues with the commentary. Player likenesses require a vivid imagination.
Excerpt: When Guitar Hero: Aerosmith was announced, there was a bit of concern about how well it would sell because it focused on one band. However, the game did a few things to try to bring in people who might not have considered getting a Guitar Hero game based on a single band. For those who are Aerosmith fans, they added extra touches like band member interviews, venues based on where the band got their major breaks, and songs that influenced the band.
