My neighbour ‘Little’ Chris, then aged around 9 , once said that he hoped there may be a ‘Bass Hero’, ‘Drum Hero’ and ‘Singing Hero’ to go along with the ‘Guitar Hero’ games he cherished. Someone must have been taking note that time, because a year or so afterward the 1st rockband title appeared on shelves.
Now on its 3rd instalment, the hugely admired rockband series seems to have eclipsed these guitar video games for better, forcing a place amongst the best successful music simulators of all time in the process. Yes, rockband is here to stay even if you like it or not and okay, that is my friend Kieran playing bass on the case of rockband 3 (OK, maybe it isn’t, but it really, really looks like him).

Using the up-to-date rockband game, approximately 7 people can jam on well-over 2,000 songs, with unparalleled longevity and repeat value. rockband 3 even includes a Professional mode, which has been praised by musicians because of its closeness to learning your instrument for real.
Specific tricks (like drum rolls) have been made easier to carry out this time round, and so the game itself does appear a little more forgiving, this will only be an excellent thing, because who joins a rock band to be in a state?
