My neighbour ‘Little’ Chris, then aged about 9 , once said that he wished there could be a ‘Bass Hero’, ‘Drum Hero’ and ‘Singing Hero’ to go along with the ‘Guitar Hero’ games he loved. Someone must have been listening that day, because a year or so afterward the 1st rockband game appeared on shop floor.
Now on its 3rd instalment, the hugely accepted rockband series seems to have eclipsed these guitar video games for good, forcing a place amongst the most victorious music simulators of all time in the process. Yes, rockband is here to remain even if you like it or not and sure, that is my friend Kieran playing bass on the case of rockband 3 (OK, perhaps it isn’t, however it really looks like him).
Ethical debates on the corporate conquest of rock n roll aside; people are buying and enjoying the up-to-date rockband game in record figures. Let us discover why.
Using the brand new rockband game, up to seven friends can jam on well-over 2,000 songs, with unparalleled longevity and replay value. rockband 3 even features a Pro mode, which is praised by musicians for its understanding to learning your instrument for real.
Certain tricks (just like drum rolls) are made simpler to carry out this time round, plus the game itself does seem slightly more forgiving, this may only be an excellent thing, because who joins a rock band to be tense?
