"Excellent game. Loads of variety \m/"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

An excellent game with a great variety of songs to choose from.

Huge customisation ability and controller interface.

Having played many Guitar Hero games I've found the drumming much

More fun in Rockband. Its laid out more evenly over the drum pads

Instead of focusing on one side.

Being able to have EPIC freestyle outros are huge fun. (you can

Play anything you like and gain a massive amount of points. As

Long as you hit the final notes!)

The microphone might be the last instrument picked by you and

Your friends but don't shy away from it! With varying degrees of

Difficulty you can make it through a song even if you sing as bad

As I do!

Or if you want a bit more of a challenge you can select the “karaoke mode” which removes the pitch indicators and shows only the lyrics (Make sure you know the tune!)

All in all huge fun for young and old, newbies to pros with a band being able to play on a different difficulty per instrument. This means YOU can beat your mum/dad/big brother/sister!!!

Rock on!!

5 Stars for real!

"Hours of arguments and excitement!"
4 stars"

The reason i say hours of excitement is because you can play 4 different instruments through a vast and reasonably long track of songs. The reason i say arguments is because you will be fighting with mates of who gets to play what instrument and usually microphone is left over, surprise, surprise..

I really enjoy this game even though a can't play most songs on expert with any of the instruments.There is great difficulty settings and pretty cool character customisation available.

I do however get a bit sick of the same songs over and over and only a few of them to my liking. So make sure you like the songs in this game otherwise get a different music game that you do like the songs of because i find if the song is boring… so is playing it as I find myself falling asleep.

Another problem is if you feel like playing something new they have a robery scheme which makes you pay like $3 a song with only 2 or 3 free songs which are below average.

But never the less an enjoyable game!

"A great party game"
5 stars"

Definately worth it awesome setlist and alot more downloadable content with more comming (by october 20 2009 there will be 10 tracks added from Queen"FINALLY"!!!!) game plays well.Better in my opinion than the GH series, I got bored after 2, have 3 though. After getting rock band I havent looked back and just last week gotten rock band 2 whick is even better. (google Rock Band 2 and search NZ websites and you might find someone local selling one) But Rock Band 1 is a good start works with Guitar Hero Guitars whick means you dont need to buy the instrument pack if you dont to.

All up Rock Band is in my opinion the best music game franchise around.
