  • 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.

Rock Band 3 review (X360)

  • Excerpt: adopts a more complicated approach. You can start playing in a "Quick Play" mode, or you can go to a "Career" mode. Performance in one mode affects the options that you have in the other mode. Each song you play can earn you fans, and having enough fans allows you to increase the range of your tours, which eventually leads to more fame, more fans and more gear for your custom band.

Review: Rock Band 3 (Xbox 360, PS3, Wii)

  • 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.

Rock Band 3 Review

5 February 2011
  • Excerpt: One of my main goals with Rock Band 2 was for Goretopsy, my Rock Band band, to complete the Endless Setlist II in one sitting - 84 songs played back-to-back, and a feat demanding enough to file down the buttons on any half-decent plastic guitar. It was the ultimate challenge that, sadly, I never got the opportunity to experience.

  • Conclusion: The production values may not be noticeably improved over its predecessor, and the game does seem to be overly reliant and hyped on the new peripherals than anything else, but this band still plays a damn good song, even if we're sick of the genre by now. But at least it's not as stupid as dance central. That's just asinine.

  • 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.

Rock Band 3 Review (Xbox 360)

  • Excerpt: Throw everything you know about Rock Band out the window, because there is a newer and more badass version in town – Rock Band 3....
  • Pros: Better than ever graphics, menu controls, gameplay, and intuitiveness. The keyboard kicks it up a notch as well as the addition of the Pro instruments. This isn’t the Rock Band of yore for the kiddies.
  • Cons: Replay value could drop after awhile once the initial thrill wears off. New instruments are pricey.
