Overall: Rock Band is a great game that has changed the face of rhythem games, music games, and the way gamers can play their xbox. This game almost always has something for everyone to be good at and have the entire family/freinds to do something. Rock Band is a game that lets you the player become a rocker whether your a guitar, a b@!%#*!, a drummer, or even a singer you and your band get to rock to some of the greatest songs in the music history from Enter Sandman by Metallica to Red Hot Chili Pepper's Dani California. In this game you can also "battle" which is something that you would probably think (if you haven't played guitar hero that is) is absoultly ridiculous thinking how could you battle with music, a "battle" is where you can either do a tug of war for the crowds favor or just play and see who gets the most points. For the people who played Guitar hero your "star power" has been replaced with "overdrive" which does just about the same thing except you can also use it to save band members. This game is just about guaranteed to be entertaining and extreme fun for a real long time because if you start to get bored with your regular insturment you can just switch and the fun starts all over again who needs real insturments when you got rock band.
Gameplay: Well the Game play is great because it is a new way to play. The gameplay is great because it is challenging for just about any part the Guitar and b@!%#*! you have to strum and push the buttons at the right time which is no easy feat for the hard songs. The drummer must hit the right drum at the right time which gets harder as you have to drum faster as it gets more difficult and the singer has to sing for the right amount of time. Rock band's gameplay shows its unique because it is popular without violence.
Graphics: The visual is good but its not the best unfortunatly but the good part is who cares?? I mean you will be spending all the time looking at your parts concentrating why would you take the time to look around? I bet that it could be a blank background and you never would see the difference. This shows a great way how they make up their visual with gameplay.
Sound: Do I even need to say anything? Rock band is pretty self explanatory itself I mean its got some of the greatest tracks of rock and metal history some will be a cakewalk for some and for other it might be a walk through hell the soundtrack has plenty off songs and will only continue to have more.
Suggestions: I only Suggest that you can make more harder songs than there is. Maybe a song that is almost impossible for the people that will keep the people even more addicted and play it more for example like in guitar hero 3 "through the fire and flames" requires all the skill and all the reflexs I would like to see something like that in rock band
