Summary: Parents need to know that even though there are some mildly offensive lyrics, this game is appropriate for players 10 and older (despite the "Teen" rating). Some songs have offensive words bleeped out, while other lyrics are kept as-is, such as The Hives' "Main Offender" ("I'm stuck in ways of being an ass"). This game is best for social settings since players get different instruments to play.
Excerpt: Music is an emotional medium. Bands, songs, even entire albums stick with us mostly because of the emotions they elicit. I, along with most other people loved last year’s The Beatles: Rock Band for that very reason, I have an emotional attachment to the content – which can’t be said for Harmonix’s latest single act Rock Band experience starring pop-punk band Green Day.
Rock Band: The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Axis Bold as Love
1 May 2010
Excerpt: Rock Band: The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Axis : Bold As Love It should probably be a law that when you’re setting yourself up to play a game such as Rock Band, that you’ve listened to the records of people such as Jimi Hendrix, but for those who aren’t accustomed to the history of rock music, Hendrix was one of the greatest and most influential guitarists and musicians not only of his generation, but of all time.
Conclusion: Of course, there’s more to The Bigs 2 ’s fun than mere bodily injury. The additional Home Run Pinball mode—where users get to pinpoint cityscape targets for points—is a blast, and also available in Live multiplayer. On the field, a “Gamebreaker”-like home-run blast, granted to those who fill up the special meter by solid play, is both a visual treat and a vital part to closing out a team in the final inning.
