Ok so I had to buy this for like $45 used in "ok" condition. It runs so whatever. I picked this up for the PS3 and the songs on it are really great, so if your one of those people who is on the fence about picking this game up now that it's mission impossible to find it at a reasonable price, my advice is this. If you have the money to blow, and NEED the game, pick it up, you won't regret it. But I'd advise just getting it used over new, since why pay $130-$150 for a game that you will also be paying extra to download additional songs for? The tracks are real solid, and it introduced me to some songs I'd never heard before that I really love, which is extremely rare for me (I'm that guy who believes music stopped being good period lol). I wouldn't say it's worth $150, but it is a solid game, so it is a 5 star game, and I won't knock points off simply because the games hard to find, but man is it hard not to focus most of my attention on how lame THAT aspect of acquiring this game truly is lol.
So, Rock Band 3. I first heard about it on youtube while I was searching for videos of PowerGig in October, I was interested in buying PowerGig and I am glad I did not. I came to RB from a long standing history of being a Guitar Hero guy, one of those that didn't see the need for two similar rhythm games, but I am glad I was wrong. What appealed to me instantly about RB3 was the pro instrument mode and the Squier. I have been looking to learn guitar for years but have never had the time nor money to invest in a guitar AND instructor. Over the past couple of year I have been watching the instruction side of guitars and its presence online. You can find many videos from various sites now. So I decided to put the money down for Rock Band 3 and more recently for the Squier and a bunch of other stuff along with it (amp, picks, tuner, ect).
RB3's set list is awesome, pure awesome. There are tons of great songs like Rainbow in the Dar by Dio, Crazy Train by Ozzy, Centerfold by The J Giels Band, or Cold as Ice by Foreigner. This is expanded by RBN's over 2400 songs up for download, some are even free such as Still Alive; yes THAT Still Alive from Portal, and some Rock Band 2 songs.
I have not had a chance to play the Pro Mode yet as I did not want to buy a Mustang, the whole reason for the innovations in this game was to get off those plastic things. I will update this review with info on the Squier once I get in in March.
Anyway you progress through the game by beating road tours, set lists, and completing goals for your selected instrument. Each one has their own goals and you can even use the guitar to play three instruments; guitar, bass, and keys. You unlock parts of the road tour as you gain fame. One of the hardest goals you will do in Rock Band 3 is the endless set list where you play through all 83 songs. That took me three days, a total of around 4 to 5 hours.
I liked that I could use my Guitar Hero: Areosmith guitar to play this game, true I do not have the solo buttons, but I have never picked up a RB game before so this was new territory. The game is actually a lot more polished then the GH's and it felt like the note tracking was smoother.
The charting also seems superior over GH although there are a few songs I think Harm just put some random notes in for in Expert mode, not many of its 83 songs mind you, but a few.
One thing I did notice, don't know if it was intentional, is that the background scene tends to lag quite a bit. Again I don't know if that is intentional or not since the fretboard is not affected by this.
With the amount of content in-game and on RBN as well as Pro Mode you will have many weeks of use our of this game and it has a very high replay value, like most of the other rhythm games. I have not played online yet, and do not plan to so I can not comment on that.
All comments above pertain to playing the game solo, I do not know what kind of issues or quirks the game has for bands.
On the instruction side, again I have not had a chance to play pro mode, but I have watched an ungodly number of videos or rather the same videos many MANY times about pro mode. All signs point to that RB3 as an instructional aid is going to be where the butter is at for those looking to break into the field or those who already know some stuff but want to get their stuff together and round out their guitar-ology.
I would suggest that you take some basic online video courses to learn how to hold, play, and maintain the guitar before playing RB3 though. As far as I have seen the instruction mode assumes you know the most basics of basics and jumps right into single note strumming bypassing all those pesky technique lessons. There are several sites that have free video tuts for beginners, all you need to do is google for free beginner guitar video lessons.
For some reason this game is hard to find in Mexico city, I think there are few distributors and they are more interested in Guitar Hero. I only wish Amazon would also send guitar controllers which are even harder to get.
The game is a very rich update to the experience in RB2. Among the most notorious features are: * when you pause the game, it rolls back a few bars, thus allowing you to catch up * you can join or leave at any time, for practice and to avoid frustration * if you fail a song you may keep playing to the end, but you lose your scoring * road challenges are set lists you must complete, but you may stop at the middle of a challenge and next time it will resume from where you left off * load times are significantly shorter * improved graphics * all songs come unlocked from the start * menus are accessible from more parts of the game, and options such as no-fail mode can be toggled from the song select screen
I play RB3 mostly with my wife, we have two daughters but the older one is just 19 months old so she doesn't care too much for the game, just tries to hit the drums or press all the buttons on the guitar. We can just drop one instrument and join on another to keep on progressing. Being able to resume challenges is also very helpful, since we hardly get to play more than a couple of songs in a row anyway.
New songs are good, and I'll import my other RB songs into the game, if you'll only buy one RB game, make sure it's this one. It keeps the same gameplay formula so it's just as fun as the others, but all the features I mentioned fix several annoyances from the past.
I'm looking forward to play in the new PRO mode, but Amazon won't ship the cymbals, the mustang controller nor the midi adapter for my keyboard to Mexico, so it will have to wait until I find another trustworthy online retailer.
I love the Rock Band series. My friends and I have a blast holding "band practice" almost every weekend. RB3 is one of our favorites since you can use the keyboard and up to three singers. More people can play at a time, which makes for more entertaining parties and band practice! You can also access over 2000 songs to download to add to your collection, just be warned that they cost $2 each!
Having been a fan of the RB series and finally upgrading to a PS3, this was the first game on my mind. On the plus side: *Familiar gameplay *great animations/customization *great track list
My only cons are *downloaded songs have to load every time you start the game. This seems weird, and while it doesn't take long, its irritating *the "band set up" montages before each song get pretty lame after you've seen each of them 50 times. Wish they were skippable *if you are a fan of only one instrument, it takes a while to unlock all the road challenges and you still have to play songs you don't like to get your artist/band through the single player game
All in all, a great addition to the series and well worth the purchase for RB fans or just music fans looking for a fun game.
I bought this from "MOST WANTED" seller for 117 dollars. Surely, for over a hundred dollars, it would include the instruments. But no, that is the wrong assumption. I paid for Saturday delivery for a party today and it was just the game disk. Not only do I feel stupid for paying extra for delivery, but I feel stupid for giving them over one hundred dollars for a game disk that you can get for 20.
Find someone selling it for 20, or just go to a store to get this game. Don't buy anything from "MOST WANTED".
