So my friend's and I couldn't wait for another of our friends to get the PS3 version of Rock Band, so we came together and bought it for the 360.
I haven't had so much fun since Smash Brothers.
I first saw the song list and it turned me off, but most of the songs are really fun to play. The only song I've played that I didn't like was that awful POS Fall Out Boy track. Other than that the track list is solid, and pretty catchy. I've enjoyed more songs than I honestly thought I would.
There's a lot of teamwork that goes into the game, and considering I've never played a rhythm game before everyone else has to pull my ass out of the fire plenty of times. It's discouraging when you perma-fail because that just leads to the demise of the band, but I'm playing on Hard and Expert when I shouldn't. Using the Overdrive together and just getting general Union Bonuses are hard to keep up. There's plenty of challenge too, and singing is a lot harder that any of us thought and it usually causes us to fail luckily I don't do any. The Metallica Pack is also harder than anything else in the game... a lot harder.
The customization options are great, you can get whatever look you want I wish I could get a screen (Weren't you supposed to be able to upload the band to the Rock Band Site?). It's strange most of the Metal clothing is Glam Metal, but there's plenty of good stuff in the other clothing categories. I haven't messed with the tattoos much but I've toyed with the make-up and it's really open and fluid, you can do anything. Corpse Paint for the win.
Instruments are awesome, but need to be fixed. The Guitar feels great and not "cheap" as many reviews stated. The Effects switch is nice and adds a little added fun to the game, and the strum bar doesn't "click" anymore and has good resistance. Upstrum (Finger style bass) works and has just the right amount of resistance, so actually works well as a Bass. Eventually the downstrum will fail on the guitar and it makes it unusable. Everyone seems to have this problem online. The only damage the drums have had is the red pad (Tom) failing to respond unless it's hit in a sweetspot.
Who else is enjoying the game?
P.S. Check out the Leader Boards for "...And Justice For All," our band "The Pinched Loaves" are 86 surprisingly. We believe it's because hardly anyone's completed that song.
