My friend ‘Little’ Chris, then aged about nine, once stated that he hoped there could be a ‘Bass Hero’, ‘Drum Hero’ and ‘Singing Hero’ to go along with the ‘Guitar Hero’ games he cherished. Someone must have been listening that time, because a year or so later the 1st rockband game appeared on shelves.
Now on its 3rd instalment, the hugely popular rockband series seems to have eclipsed these guitar video games for better, forcing a spot among the best triumphant music sims of all time in the process. Yes, rockband is here to stay regardless of whether you prefer it or not and sure, that’s my friend Kieran playing bass on the cover of rockband 3 (OK, perhaps it isn’t, but it really looks like him).
Ethical debates on the company takeover of rock n roll aside; people are purchasing and enjoying the modern rockband game in record figures. Let us learn why.
Using the brand new rockband game, around 7 friends can jam on well-over 2,000 songs, with extraordinary durability and repeat value. rockband 3 even features a Professional mode, which is praised by musicians because of its closeness to learning your instrument for real.
Certain tricks (just like drum rolls) have been made simpler to achieve this time around, and so the game itself does appear a little more forgiving, this will only be an effective thing, because who joins a rock band to be in a state?
