    5.0 out of 5 stars Two Words for Fun: November 21, 2007
    Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Special
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    Rock Band.

    It all started 8 years ago when I was introduced to Guitar Freaks at Gameworks in Tempe, AZ. The idea of playing a musical instrument as part of video game was addictive. Granted, the songs were original and limited, and the game bundle (offered only for the PS1 in Japan) was expensive, but Konami had the right idea.

    Enter Guitar Hero. The original PS2 version, released two years ago, took the Guitar Freaks ingenuity and turned it into a product that appealed to the American audience. Those of us who had spent hundreds of dollars at Gameworks pounding songs on Guitar Freaks knew exactly what to do with the guitar and how to read the screen. I snagged one the week it came out and played to my heart's content. With subsequent releases of GHII and Rock of the 80's, I had enough music to last me for a couple of years. Last year Guitar Hero II became the high-demand Christmas item to give, breaking out of the die-hard "gamer" audience and into the average household (a feat very rarely accomplished by developers who publish games that require a unique controller).

    Harmonix, the developer for Rock Band, has their experience with successful rhythm-based games. Frequency, Amplitude, Karaoke Revolution and Guitar Hero all won the hearts of audiences and game reviewers. With the success of these games, their partnership with MTV Music to create Rock Band is ingenious and exciting. Who else would be better suited than MTV to convince musicians and music publishers to contribute to this project? And what more brilliant way could any band market themselves?

    3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Drum Kit, disappointing guitar controller November 26, 2007
    Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Special
    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
    I, like most fans of the Guitar Hero series, have been anticipating the arrival of this game since I first learned of its development back in July. When I first saw the photos of the guitar controller I became ecstatic. It looked like the guitar controller I have always wanted since I actually own a real Stratocaster made to the Eric Clapton "Blackie" design. The controller looks almost exactly like my real guitar! So with that combined with the fact that the game was created by the original development team fir Guitar Hero I and II, Needless to say I was quivering with anticipation.

    The is no doubt that the guitar gameplay is very similar to the Guitar Hero series. For some reason though, I seem to have a harder time focusing on the notes in Rock Band since they are little rectangles instead of fat circles like in GH. But the song list is amazing and that certainly makes up for some cons. However there is one thing I cannot get over:

    The Guitar controller sucks. There. I said it. The construction of the unit is just the cheapest of cheap plastic. When you are playing it, you feel as though you have to be careful not to break it. Yeah, the buttons are designed better in my opinion but the plastic actually bends under minimal pressure. WTF!?!?! And while I was excited about the buttons on the lower fretboard for solos, they are almost too narrow to be played by average adult hands. So now I will find myself plugging in my GH3 controller for Rock Band.
    But there is a huge plus side: The drums. They are just incredibly fun to play. And while they may not be built like real drums but rather electonic drumpad abominations from the 1980's they seem as though they can stand up to some abuse.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Really Rock Out Loud November 19, 2007
    Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Special
    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
    When it comes to video games in the shape of rhythm, there have been some of them that really have dominated the past several years like Dance Dance Revolution and singing games like Singstar for the Playstation 2. nevertheless, the one big hit that makes everyone want to rock out loud this past year had been the success of Activision's Guitar Hero series. Although there has been so much great success of the game series, many other have wanted to take the gameplay a bit step further by adding the beat of drums, and a hint of a mighty voice from a microphone for one rocking video game that takes it a much more hyped step further, and that adds into Rock Band.

    Rock Band, for the Playstation 3, takes the excitement we've seen from music franchises like Guitar Hero, and bring more elements of rock by adding drums, and a microphone, by bringing the new element of rock to gameplay. That can also be said with the songs that you can unlock and choose from. The music you can jam too also takes it a bit higher, by bringing in artists that haven't yet seen the light from Guitar Hero in any of the games, and that adds onto the gameplay well. The graphics work very well, but the gameplay is in the songs as you jam to classics from R.E.M. on their 1988 hit Orange Crush, to rock gods like The Rolling Stones classic Gimme Shelter, and Bon Jovi with their 80's anthem Wanted Dead Or Alive. There are also cherrished hits from The Red Hot Chili Peppers with their 2005 hit Dani California, and the Foo Fighters guilty pleasure Learn To Fly. There are also other recent guilty pleasures like OK Go and Here It Goes Again, and Jet's Are You Gonna Be My Girl to play with here as well.
