Can i call it a pioneer in Rhythm games?
18 June 2009 | by The_Light_TritonSee all my reviews

Well, if it's the first game outside of the arcade to use drums and a USB microphone, can I?

So, what do you do in rock band? You play in a rock band. It's a direct rip-off of guitar hero, and it costed twice as much in it's debut (I purchased GH3 for $113 Canadian at Future shop on December 26th, 2007, and it came with the game, the guitar and some stickers.) while i was there, Rock band was worth about $200, not including tax.

anyways, the soundtrack is pretty good, including Metallica's Enter sandman, and Iron maiden's Run to the hills, but for the sake of the world, i swear i haven't heard as many kids saying how "Dead or alive" is now their favorite song. I thought it was kind of cute first, but now it annoys me worse than Taylor swift whining about Joe Jonas, about a year after their little break-up occurred. What else annoys me? The PMS song. yeah, or "I'm so Sick" by Flyleaf....God, I hate flyleaf.

But for real, Rock band is a family game. it appeals to the whole family, but it's never going to be as good as the guitar hero games. Guitar hero appeals to real rock fans. Rock band appeals to children.
