Customer Review

on February 7, 2011
This is similar to the previous country track pack. It is a stand-alone game that is I believe based on the Rock Band 1 engine, but the tracks can be "exported" to work in Rock Band 3 (or 1 and 2 I assume).

I didn't try it as a stand-alone game but immediately entered the code on the back of the manual to "export" the tracks. That is done through the "Redeem Code" menu on the PS3. The export is actually a 500 or so megabyte download so I never even inserted the disc.

After that it's basically like any downloaded content except for one big thing; there is no keyboard or Pro Guitar drums support. It's really hard to understand why since Rock Band 3 has been out for months and is the new standard. I can only assume it's a financial decision to try and support all Rock Band versions. I read there is harmony support and I can vouch Pro drums are supported, which is true for most/all older songs. In a post on the Harmonix forums they suggest that the country pack 2 will later be available as DLC and they may add keys and Pro guitar support for that. Of course that will likely be a separate purchase.

The song selection to me is not that strong. Mostly popular artists but not their best songs. My favorite is "Sideways" by Dierks Bently. I appreciate they included some classic outlaw country, "Mama Tried" by Merle Haggard. "Ring of Fire" is included but is not the classic radio version. It's a faster tempo, still a good song though.

So check out the song to price ratio and decide if keys and Pro guitar support is important to see if this a good value for you.
