Rock Band RRS feed

  • Question

  • An MTV and Electronic Arts presentation of a game developed by Harmonix Music Systems for the Playstation 2, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Reviewed on Xbox 360.

    Pity the neighbors of anyone who picks up “Rock Band.” With two guitars, a drum kit and a microphone, this new title from “Guitar Hero” developer Harmonix isn’t a game so much as a virtual lifestyle, meant to be played by four people strumming, pounding and wailing their hearts out, with breaks for the inevitable “Behind the Music” jokes. Several deficiencies in the hardware and online play keep the solo experience a step behind “Guitar Hero,” but as a party game, “Rock Band” can’t be beat.
