My friend ‘Little’ Chris, then aged about 9 , once stated that he wished there could be a ‘Bass Hero’, ‘Drum Hero’ and ‘Singing Hero’ to go along with the ‘Guitar Hero’ video games he loved. Someone must have been listening that day, because one year roughly afterward the very first rockband title appeared on shop floor.
Now on its third instalment, the immensely accepted rockband series seems to have eclipsed these guitar games for good, forcing a spot among more triumphant music sims of all time in the process. Yes, rockband is here to remain regardless of whether you like it or not and okay, that’s my friend Kieran playing bass on the cover of rockband 3 (OK, perhaps it isn’t, however it really looks like him).
Ethical debates on the corporate invasion of rock n roll aside; people are buying and enjoying the new rockband game in record numbers. Let us learn why.
Using the brand new rockband title, around seven people can jam on well-over two thousand songs, with unprecedented durability and replay value. rockband 3 even features a Professional mode, which has been praised by musicians because of its understanding to learning your instrument for real.
Certain tricks (such as drum rolls) are made easier to perform this time round, plus the game itself does appear a bit more forgiving, this will only be an effective thing, because who joins a rock band to be uptight?
