5 Harmonix has done it again....tomstar42 | 30/10/2010 | See all tomstar42's reviews (2)Rock Band 3 is everything the previous instalment wanted to be. I think I can safely say, that this game is as close to rhythm game perfection as it's ever going to get. Firstly, the setlist is a nice mix, it's mostly pop and rock songs this time around, with less emphasis on the metal genre. You have classics like John Lennon's Imagine and Ozzy Osbourne's Crazy Train. Pretty much every genre is covered in Rock Band 3, you even have some Reggae with Bob Marley. The keyboard adds a new dynamic to the game, giving you a chance to learn actual songs with the Pro Keys mode, which allows to to use all 25 keys of of the Offical keyboard on one song. Pro drums have you using three extra symbols this time around, and Harmonies (also known as Pro Vocals), allow three singers to sing songs like 'Bohemian Rhapsody' by Queen. Pro guitar adds a whole new level of difficulty to the rhythm game franchise, teaching you how to play actual guitar parts through tablature. The Pro guitars are currently still unreleased, but they look like the ultimate challenge. The one feature that lets Rock Band 3 down is it's career mode. Gone is the World Tour mode from the past games, road challenges are the new career path. Similar to World Tour, they have you playing setlists of two to three songs, but the whole system seems messy and most of the time you are unsure of what;s actually going on and what you are supposed to be doing. Overall Rock Band 3 isn't perfect, but it's almost there. Any fans of the series should definitely be picking up this game, and if you havn't played Rock Band before, then this is a great time to start.
