I have made my love of music/rhythm games known through my post about Rock Band 3. I have gone back and started to play another game in the Rock Band series, LEGO Rock Band. This is a cute game and I think it was designed specifically for the younger fans. It has a “super easy” difficulty, which I’ve not seen anywhere else. The song list is so-so, but it is still a lot of fun to play.
You can sing, play drums, bass or lead guitar. It does have a story mode and is pretty cute. At one point, you even get to meet LEGO Queen and play as LEGO Brian May. It is a fairly consistent story format for Rock Band games. As you play, you collect money (studs in this game), fans and stars. You can use your studs to buy new items, including new forms of transportation. New transportation means new venues, which means more songs.
One thing I don’t like about this game is that it makes you replay a lot of songs. In one sitting, I played one particular song three times, which is too much repetition for my taste. I’m going to finish the story mode so I can rack up the achievements. Overall, it’s an ok game, but I’m not in love with it. If you’re a fan of the music genre, you’ll like it.
