Guitar Hero Fans Watch Out! Rock Band seems vary promising

Post  DarkAngel on Sat Nov 03, 2007 4:12 am

Guitar Hero Fan? Maybe like the games DDR or American Idol?

I have had the liberty of trying a new game that comes out November 20th, 2007 for the Xbox360 and PS3. I am a big fan of rhythm games, I've played DDR, and Guitar Hero. I also played the audition game that Nexon hosts but i fund it kind of annoying to play, that game takes more speed than rhythm to play, but back to the topic.

As far as Guitar Hero(1) goes you have a simple Multi-player guitar challenge and about 4 out of 5 songs in the game I knew but didn't really care for. I liked about 2 out of 5 songs.
I haven't had a chance to play 2, 3, or 80's I heard that 2 has a better co-op mode I demoed 3 but the demo's are vary limited.

As for Rock Band it takes everything we love about Guitar Hero, and the Idol game adds a drummer and you have a full Band (Singer, Guitar, Bass, Drums) you get bonus points for keeping sync with other players. The interesting is this is the one game that is fully co-op. You have to play well with the rest of your band if one of your band members fail you lose the level (if your players performance is higher than a set bar you can resurrect the boo'ed player and you will win savior points.) This game is vary creative there is drum/guitar solos and a kick ass finisher where you have no set notes you just jam your guitar/drums however you want (you have to hit the final note to get the points for your jamming)

You don't need four players if one player is really good you can pull (what I'm going to call) a Green Day if you want to utilize the full band play and get the proper points. Where your going to have one player play guitar and sing, I'm a drummer so I'm not going to do it hell I already have half my band set (My Bud Keith will be guitar) I just need a singer and bassist now for the screen shots:

The Guitar:

RB Controller VS GH Controller
+1 RB: Adds smaller fret buttons near the high end (closer to the strum bar) to jam the finishes
+1 RB: A Switch to control the tone (Works only in RB)
+1 RB: A D-Pad for easier menu control
+1 RB: Better Design
+1 GH: Lighter
+1 GH: Strum Bar is easier to strum, tighter on the RB controller
Final: +2 RB Controller

The Drums:


Game Play:

Top is the Singer. Left To Right: Lead Guitar, Drums, Bass
