Rock Band Review
Posted on February 14, 2008 by Dinkar Varma
 

You have access to a ton of individual clothing items to customize your character with. Anything from denim jackets, leather boots, road warrior style spike pads to my absolute favorite the Dr. Acula cape. With different hairstyles, body types, skin tones and a lot more. You can choose the type of personality your character has; from metal to goth, Rock Band has you covered..  One thing that I really appreciate and its hard to notice while your playing is that your vocalist mouth on the screen is actually singing the lyrics, your lead guitar player fingers are on the proper fret and drummer is hitting the right drum pad at any specific moment in a song. It doesn’t do much for the actual game play but goes a long way in adding to the overall game.  The game looks real nice on HDTV sets so you’re in for a treat if you have one.

What good is a music game if its sound quality sucks? Everything from solos, cymbals crashing, to your friends singing on the mic Rock Band sounds fantastic. It all comes out crystal clear. You can even lower the volume of the game vocal track and turn up the mic in its place if your vocalist is good, if they aren’t well you can turn them down without them knowing. Crank up the volume on your Dolby Digital surround sound it really helps with the mood and atmosphere.

Now we here at ps3center.net give out our greatest apologies as we’ve put up this review quite late. I’m personally responsible because instead of writing this up I was too busy playing Rock Band. Now go buy this game get 3 friends and rock out all night long.

With the release of Rockband 2, you'd think you would just ignore this and get RB2, but if you see this game at a low price, you should definitely buy it. It's probably one of the best local multiplayer games on the PS3.
