The Rock Band hits keep on coming with the latest installment in the franchises' popular music-experience video game, LEGO Rock Band. Hot on the heels of one of the most successful video game launches of the year--The Beatles: Rock Band--LEGO Rock Band combines the familiar Rock Band play pattern with the world of LEGO to create a comical, band-building, music-jamming game. In the game, players will build a band using the iconic LEGO people and then take the band on the road, sea and off the planet as they rock out to current and classic rock songs.
The songs included in the game should ensure that everyone playing can find a favorite, including: "Free Fallin" by Tom Petty, "So What" by Pink, "Ghostbusters" by Ray Parker Jr, "You Give Love A Bad Name" by Bon Jovi and "Song 2" by Blur.
Unlike other Rock Band and Guitar Hero games, LEGO RB is the first to appeal directly to families, kids and tweens and includes a new Super Easy difficulty level for beginners of all ages.
The game is sold alone and there are no plastic instruments like the ones The Beatles and Rock Band 2 came with. Those instruments as well as most Guitar Hero and other music game instruments will work with LEGO Rock Band. The game will be available for Microsoft Xbox 360, Nintendo DS and Wii, Sony PS3 on November 3.
Check out our Video Game Review section on TimeToPlaymag.com for a full review when the game arrives in stores.
