These new features include: new setlist search functionality, the addition of 3-part harmonies and a keyboard peripheral and expanded play modes, including the advanced Pro Mode.

Additionally, Rock Band 3 gives players immediate access to a music library approaching 2,000 songs by launch, with new content added regularly.

Redesigned Music Library

Rock Band 3 allows players to create and save setlists and share them with friends, both in-game and through RockBand.com. In addition, new song filters make it easier to find the types of songs fans want to play and hide the songs they don't, while a built-in song recommendation system will suggest tracks from Rock Band's colossal music library, based on personal fan preference.

Expand the Band

In addition to guitar, bass, drums and solo vocals, Rock Band 3 adds three-part vocal harmony functionality that was introduced with The Beatles: Rock Band and, for the first time ever, a keyboard peripheral to the band. The combination of all these possibilities means that up to seven players can rock together in Rock Band 3 for the ultimate social gaming experience.

Go Pro: Take Your Passion to the Next Level

Rock Band 3 empowers players to develop actual musical skills through the fun of fully scalable Rock Band Pro gameplay. Fans can dive in on the Easy setting to try out basic skills and work their way up to Expert for real mastery. Pro Drums supports three expansion cymbals, with gameplay differentiation between toms and cymbals. Pro Keys (Keyboard) features pitch-accurate keyboard performance across a two-octave range, displayed on an easy-to-read keyboard track. Pro Guitar features noted guitar and bass performances, available for play with either the new Fender Mustang PRO-Guitar simulated guitar controller from Mad Catz, or the Rock Band 3 Squier by Fender Stratocaster guitar controller that is a real guitar/controller hybrid. The Rock Band 3 Squier Stratocaster is a fully functional, full-sized, six-string electric guitar that also functions as a game controller.

New Gameplay Modes

For the casual player, Rock Band 3 has great new party modes that allow fans to get rocking with friends quicker than ever, including party shuffle and persistent drop-in/dropout and difficulty selection from any gameplay screen. For the serious player, the revamped Career Mode features 700+ goals and rewards and seamless leaderboard integration for an endlessly deep campaign experience. Rock Band 3 also adds a suite of social networking tools to the game so fans can engage friends and fellow rockers over Facebook, Twitter and more. Whether players want to jump in for a quick song or take their band to the top, Rock Band 3 has a mode for everyone.

Product Description

Rock Band 3 is the next generation of the ultimate social and interactive music gaming platform developed by the category’s leading pioneers, Harmonix Music Systems. Featuring innovative game modes and instruments, Rock Band 3 will change the way fans think about and play music games.

3.0 out of 5 stars Many Great Aspects, But Falls Short in Some Areas October 31, 2010
By R. Hess
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Overall, Rock Band 3 adds some great features and enhancements, but there are a few things you should be aware of before purchasing (I bought on launch day, so I had to experience most of these first hand). I'm not going to chronicle every feature's positive and negative here (I haven't tested many of them), but I just want to give you a sense of my biggest impressions.

--The Good
It's Rock Band with more songs, Rock Band 2 importing, and "Pro" instruments. What's not to like? I only have the Pro Keys and Pro Drums (no Pro Guitar) and both are a lot of fun. I actually like many of the songs (not all, naturally...that's how most of these games go, and why there's downloadable songs available to get more specific tracks).

There are many improvements in basic gameplay and game design. For example, activating "Overdrive" (Star Power if you come from Guitar Hero) is less distracting but still visually attractive. These tweaks are very welcome.

--The Bad
I personally think most of the graphics on RB3 are worse than RB2; it's a bit of a mixed bag. I've seen some very pretty games on Wii (Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario Bros. Wii, etc.) and they put this game to shame. I've tried both the Wii's default RCA (composite) cables and special component cables, but still get pretty iffy graphics, even for Wii standards (which are lower than PS3 and Xbox 360). Some details just aren't that appealing (as in previous games, the notes 'explode' when played, but this time they do so in a cloud of cheesy-looking smoke). Sometimes there are weird visual glitches in the menus and during gameplay, like flickering lighting. They aren't enough to destroy the actual act of playing, but they do make the experience a bit less enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must buy, but with some disappointments November 20, 2010
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As a Wii-only owner, it's frustrating to see how the system is so frequently short-changed by developers. Despite being the least powerful system in its generation, the Wii still has potential that goes largely untapped by most developers other than Nintendo. In the case of Rock Band 3, I'm happy to report that, for the most part, it takes full advantage of what the Wii is capable of. Finally, users can download up to 32GB of DLC via the SD slot, take advantage of song exporting (though only RB2 and Green Day Rock Band are permitted now), track packs in the music store, and have all the same modes and functions as the 360/PS3 iterations, including the new Pro mode.

Of course, RB3 also introduces a brand new instrument with the keyboard. I won't be speaking too much about it, as I'm reviewing the game rather than the bundle, but it is worth picking up if you're interested in learning the keys, because it's a Pro-mode instrument out of the box. (Guitar, bass, and drums will require add-ons or all new instrument purchases in order to take advantage of their Pro modes.) The game includes some decent tutorials that attempt to teach you how to play the real thing, and playing Pro mode on each instrument is just like playing the songs in real life...because you're basically doing just that. It adds a new level of difficulty, but I wouldn't recommend putting down that kind of cash unless you're actually interested in learning the instrument or skilled enough to play at that level. If you're buying the game mostly for the social aspect, your old plastic instruments will work just fine. Also, I'd say buying the keyboard is contingent upon your interest in learning the keyboard and/or your desire to add a new instrument for another player.

5.0 out of 5 stars "The only rhythm game you need to own" October 26, 2010
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii| Edition:Game|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The title says it all - from improved menus, enhanced graphics, better game play - oh, and don't forget the entire 2,000+ song catalog (including "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen!), of which you can play almost all of them on this one game!
The new drop-in-drop-out feature is used in both the menus and during songs - allowing anyone to come in whenever they feel like it instead of having to wait till the end of the song/the band goes back to the character selection screen... which there's none in this one. Almost everything can be done from your personal pause menu, from character selection to modifiers, from extras to online playability.
The career mode has been combined into quickplay - so, you and a few friends play for fun for a few hours? Bam, you've dived into the career mode without even trying.
The online DLC store/import menu is a great feature, allowing you to buy any of the songs in the catalog and import songs from (at least) Rock Band 2 (if you have RB2) all in one area.
My only complaint is that the stand-ins for your characters when it's just you and not your "real" band mates are hard to figure out. They don't provide the position in the band, just slots for stand-ins.
The graphics - which the Wii's known for it's lacking in the graphic area - are great! Second only to The Conduit and (supposedly) Conduit 2, these are the best graphics I've gotten out of the Wii in awhile.
Remember the "Unison bonus" from RB & RB2? They've got those in single player now. When a gold bar appears on the sides of your track whilst hitting an Overdrive section, then you'll get twice the Overdrive of normal. The vocals are of the same quality as that of Beatles Rock Band, and guitar, bass, and drums are just the same. Though, you can turn on and off the drum fills now.
