Rock Band (Solus)
As a seasoned GH player I was looking forward to the release of Rock Band.The inital price of the instruments pack did put me off a little, but I decide to go for it anyway.
The game is pretty much what I expected as far as gameplay goes, it is much easier to play than the Guitar Hero games IMO, with 100% bieng very easy to achieve on all the tracks on medium level.Even most of the tracks on hard are quite easy to get a 5 star rating.
The big disapointment came when I went to form a band.A friend of mine also has the game but lives quite some distance from me, we were looking forward to creating a band & playing the world tour via Xbox live as the review of the game states....
"Multiplayer Gameplay! Play together in your living room or across the world! Rock Band offers deep online functionality, allowing players to rock together whether they're in Rhode Island or Reykjavik."
YOU CAN'T DO THIS !!
You can only play quickplay multiplayer via Xbox live,which if I had known this before purchasing, I would have stuck with GH3.The only way to play multiplayer world tour is have the rest of the band round your house,something which is not always possible, & I thought the reason for Xbox live was to allow people to play via the internet.
The other fault I have found is on the leaderboard tables.They take an absolute age to update.I posted a decent score for Enter Sandman, & it has taken 2 days for it to show up on the leaderboard.Other scores have not even appeared, seemingly lost in the system somewhere.
These two faults really let the game down IMO, as the rest of the game is quite well presented.
I can see myself going back to GH3 until GH4 appears.
Forza Motorsport 2
4 New from
What can I say about Forza 2 that hasn't already been said??I've been looking forward to this release since I brought my 360 back in January 2006, & the wait has definitly been worth it.
Graphics are about the best I have seen for this type of game, sound is spot on, & the multiplayer options further add to the polished feel of the game.There is a car for just about everybodies taste, from 1960's classics, through the hot hatch era of the 80's right up to the current supercars.The tuning options are all there, & what's more the ajustments you can now make acutually work.
This is a must buy if you own a 360.
