Lego Rock Band on 360

Lego Rock Band Screen Shots

Lego Rock Band is a Rhythmaction game available on the 360. It can be played in Cooperative Competitive Singleplayer modes.

Lego Rock Band is a Rhythmaction game. Rhythm action games combine the enjoyment that comes from creating music with the challenge of video game scoring. The player is usually tasked with dancing on a mat, tapping a touch screen, pressing a button, singing into a mic or strumming a fake guitar controller in time with the music.

Lego Rock Band can be played in a Cooperative mode. Cooperative Multiplayer games provide an experience that is played symaltaneously by multiple players. Unlike the simple arena competitive multiplayer style games where players try to kill the most enemies, true co-operative games are designed to take a group of players through a campaign experience together. This will involve sections where players have to work together to proceed - either from the sheer difficulty as in Halo 3 on 360 or by the design of levels such as LittleBigPlanet on PS3.

Lego Rock Band can be played in a Competitive mode. Competitive Multiplayer games provide experiences where players compete against each other and the computer. Obviously lending itself to sports and team games, these competitive engagements have also dominated the shooting and fighting genres because of the direct combat and expertise involved in each. Although these games were originally played in a split screen style, more recently they are played online via services such as PlayStation Network, Xbox Live and the Nintendo Wireless Connection.

Lego Rock Band can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.

Frugal Gamer review Wed, 11 Nov 2009

If you're looking for an easy way into the popular music rhythm game genre then Lego Rock Band is the only option to take. Featuring a totally unique Lego art style, Lego Rock Band for the Xbox 360, PS3, Nintendo Wii and DS combines the accessible nature of the Rock Band franchise with the adorable and charming Lego characters. This kid-friendly entry features the same slapstick humour the Lego video games are renowned for and coupled with the fun mechanics of playing a rhythm-action music game, Lego Rock Band is a wonderful choice for all aspiring (Lego) Rock stars.

Targeted squarely at the younger market, Lego Rock Band has such a unique style of presentation that it's hard, even for a Rock Band and Guitar Hero veteran, not to find it appealing and endearing. If anything, the way Lego Rock Band has been put together means it gives the usual music game an incredibly refreshing new coat of paint to enjoy.
