Like the earlier, LEGO Rock Band, Rock Band 3 challenges DS players to take their Rock & Roll fantasies in hand, playing in a band scenario both in single player and multiplayer modes. Unlike other music simulation games developed for the DS, Rock Band 3 does not require an additional peripheral, instead utilizing DS touchscreen technology to bring addictive Rock Band Note Highway gameplay to life. The game features a series of exciting play modes, an engaging track list and 4-player multi-card support via a Nintendo WI-Fi connection.

It's All About Getting in Touch with the Music

Rock Band 3 for DS allows players to experience the ins and out of band life, whether you are playing by yourself, or with friends. In single player action players create their band then run through tunes, tapping out prompts on the the familiar Rock Band Note Highway, with the goal being to complete songs as a unit. The lower screen of the DS shows the Note Highway, while the upper shows a representation of the player/bandmate(s). Players can only control one instrument at a time, but the DS provides AI bandmates in this case. If an AI bandmate stumbles the player can hear the notes missed and see a representation of the slumping bandmate. If the AI character is in jeopardy of being booed off the stage, the player can switch to that instrument with the touch of a bumper to take over and attempt to save the song.

The game also features 4-player Nintendo multi-card wireless support. This enables up to four player, all with a game copy, to come together in local play, each trying their hand at a different instrument, search out a manager, gigs and to eventually wow their fans. Instruments available in-game include: guitar, bass, drums, vocals and keyboards.

Platform for Display: Nintendo DSEdition: Game
With Rock Band 4 destined to be released in a couple months, I figured that I may as well give my thoughts on Rock Band 3.......for the Nintendo DS! So not only do we have a Rock Band game on the PSP and a conversion of Lego Rock Band for the DS, but we also get a version of the numbered sequel on the go! While certain home-to-small-screen transitions of video games have been handled as half-hearted cash grabs, others give the handhelds a complementary experience, and that's exactly what Rock Band 3 provides.

If you've played the other portable Rock Bands before, you'll know what to expect from this one. If not, don't worry; I got ya covered. Unlike the Guitar Hero games on DS, you don't need a peripheral to play this game, so not only is it less expensive to boot, but it can even be played on a Nintendo DSi or 3DS. Instead, you play using the DS's own buttons. The A, B, Y, and X buttons are all for hitting the notes (they are assigned to the specific colors of course). The unique difference (between consoles and DS anyway) is that you gain control of all four instruments, each with their own layouts of notes, and you must hop around to use them via the L and R buttons. To do well at earning stars on your performance, you must react quickly when one instrument's note layouts ends and another starts up next to you and keep hitting the notes without missing one for note streaks. And of course, the mic can be used to double your scores temporarily (a la Guitar Hero's Star Power)

All things considered, the resulting rhythm gameplay is neat and addicting. Playing songs, especially on difficulties like Hard mode, make the game fast-paced and the combo-triggering can make for a good motivation to try and keep at it.

I love the Rock Band series. I've played all of the instruments on each of the games, and I think that they are very well done. This game, however, does not hold to the same standard that I've come to expect from the name. They made the game much more complicated than it should have been by requiring you to play all instruments at all times. It is interesting and very challenging, but not having any choice takes a lot of the fun away from the game. All in all I think that harmonix did the best they could with the DS system. This game isn't a great buy though. For it's current five dollar price tag it's probably worth it if you just really want to have the portable Rock Band experience, but it will likely get old quickly.
