Conclusion: The Story mode also offers you Rock Power Challenges, which are like the normal song play, but with the potential for more studs and fans earned. They’re also an opportunity to get a bigger taste of the LEGO presentation, because each challenge has a little story built in, such as helping construction workers demolish a condemned building (with the power of rock) or defeating a giant octopus that threatens that particular gig.
Excerpt: La licence Lego se distingue avant tout par un humour omniprésent, par un côté un peu décalé qui a permis de rendre sympathique les derniers jeux sortis sous cette licence. Rock Band n'est plus à présenter dans sa catégorie jeu musical plus grand public qu'un Guitar Hero. Warner a décidé de mêler les deux univers et de produire un jeu musical amusant destiné aux plus jeunes. Ici pas question de modéliser des grandes stars du rock, ce sont les Lego les héros de ce jeu.
Conclusion: Lego Rock Band is good game overall, it’s aimed at children and that’s where it really shines. The characters and themes are fun and everything is nicely done and vey colorful. Children of all ages should love this game really, and it’s a great way to get young kids to play the Rock Band series. At heart though it’s just Rock Band with a new look, game play is virtually the same, so there’s nothing new there really.
Pros: Great kids game, Fun and rather long story mode, Good track list
Excerpt: Remember when rock was dangerous? John Lennon claimed The Beatles were bigger than Jesus, and it caused a massive shitstorm. A few decades later, their legacy has been immortalized further with this year’s highly celebrated The Beatles: Rock Band , which also further legitimized the videogame series as a pop-cultural touchstone. The Beatles are a tough act to follow, and LEGO Rock Band has that unenviable task.
Excerpt: It's impressive how much the minifigs have accomplished through the years, particularly when you consider that they have curved yellow pincers where their hands should be. These easily recognizable Lego figures have already starred in a series of action games that parody popular films, but they are taking a brief break from their lightsaber swinging and whip wielding to rock out with some instruments that are just as plastic as they are.
Pros: Charming aesthetics, Rock Power Challenges provide an interesting combination of story and gameplay, Setlist has plenty of variety, Rocking out with friends is still great fun, Charming aesthetics, Rock Power Challenges provide an interesting combination of story and gameplay, Setlist has plenty of variety, Rocking out with friends is still great fun
Cons: No online mode, Shorter versions of songs often end too abruptly, No online mode, Shorter versions of songs often end too abruptly
Conclusion: LEGO Rock Band is something of an anomaly in the world of rhythm music games. The release of a family friendly version could be seen as sign of a franchises ultimate success but the genre's market is on a sharp decline and during a global recession it is one which should have happened earlier when both these licenses were more fresh.
Excerpt: It seems like it should be the punchline to a joke, doesn’t it? Like someone is pulling your leg and saying; what if they crossed those Lego: Star Wars games with Rock Band? But it’s real and it’s here and, ostensibly, it’s aimed at the same kids and parents who bought all of the other Traveler’s Tales Lego games. But how does it stack up in the already flooded rhythm game market?
Summary: Après un The Beatles Rock Band réussi et en attendant Green Day Rock Band, Harmonix nous sort une version LEGO de sa célèbre franchise. Si au demeurant, l’annonce pouvait faire sourire, force est de constater qu’il est difficile de comprendre comment une telle idée a pu germer dans l’esprit des développeurs.
Pros: Le gameplay de Rock Band, La tracklist variée, La personnalisation de son groupe Made in LEGO
Cons: L’absence de mode online, Le faible nombre de morceaux, Certains DLC incompatibles, Les lourdeurs de Rock Band ont été conservées, Pas mal de fautes de français, Le prix de l’exportation des morceaux sur Rock Band
