Excerpt: "Rock Band - Green Day on sitä mitä sopii olettaakin, eli Green Daylle omistettu peli Rock Band -sarjassa. Ei aivan The Beatlesin -pelin tasoa, mutta varmasti tämä paketti siitä huolimatta lämmittää bändin fanien mieltä.
Pros: + Rock Bandia Green Dayn muodossa
Cons: - Vaikeustasot edelleen epätasapainossa, - Kappaleiden vähyys, - Pelillisesti ei mitään uutta sitten The Beatles -pelin
Excerpt: Rock Band is back for another round with Rock Band 3, and it looks better than ever. Thanks to backwards compatibility and licensing terms, your downloadable content and even most of the songs from previous Rock Band titles are available – for a fee, if not free – for play in Rock Band 3.
Excerpt: Publisher: EA/MTV Games Developer: Harmonix For: Xbox 360 (reviewed), PS3, Wii, PS2 ESRB Rating: T for Lyrics, Mild Suggestive Themes After the late-2006 release of Guitar Hero II, Harmonix, developer of the now insanely successful franchise, had a less than amicable split with publisher Activision, resulting in one final game—the largely mediocre Guitar Hero Rocks the 80s—and a purchase by MTV Games.
Conclusion: Rock Band 3 does a great job of reminding us why we fell in love with the series to begin with. It takes the elements that worked in Rock Band 2 and expands on them. One of these elements is the review system for Rock Band songs. Harmonix has expanded that so that you can now review any song in your library. They have also added a comprehensive Music Library to the game. By reviewing songs it effects whether or not you’ll run across them in random playlists.
Excerpt: There's a New Stop On the Rock Band Tour, But Is This One a Game-Changer? At one point in time the music/rhythm genre of gaming was a fancy way of grouping a handful of games in with the Dance Dance Revolution series. Guitar Hero and it's plastic toy controller turned the genre on it's head and gave it new life. Years after Harmonix created Guitar Hero they one-upped their own formula and created a whole rock band experience in a game aptly named Rock Band.
Summary: " Rock Band 3 " is nearly the perfect music game. It may be expensive, but it always seems worth it. The keyboards are a fantastic addition, and I really hope some of the classic DLC is updated really quickly to support this great new peripheral. Whilst career could have been improved in some areas, and some of the songs seem pretty rough, Rock Band 3 is still an awesome experience, particularly if you have some of the other titles’ songs imported.
Conclusion: Rock Band 3’s experience is contingent on how much you are willing to invest into the title. While you can certainly enjoy the experience sticking with the plastic guitars, venturing into the realm of real music playing via the Pro Guitar and Keyboard accessories will add to the overall experience and make you simply not want to put your instruments down.
