The latest music game to be released has finally been given to the masses, but will this rookie manage to take down Guitar Hero?
First Impressions: Whenever possible, we try to give our loyal website viewers the most video footage and most in depth unbiased reviews imaginable. Part of that development is our "initial impressions" where we offer up our first impressions of the title that we are playing.This gives our website visitors more of clear understanding of what to first expect out of the game when they initially pop it into their consoles. If you scroll to the bottom of the page in the Rent vs. Buy section of the review and do not see the "final impressions" assessment then it's safe to say that you are reading our initial impression of the game. Once the final impression is up, there will be no further video or review done to that particular title.
Final Impressions: The final impression is just that, our completed breakdown and overall thoughts on the game based off of our entire game playing time.You can locate the final impressions assessment in the "Rent vs. Buy" section of the review (always located at the very end of all of our reviews). Here you will be able to read our final thoughts on the title and also see any potential grade changes that were made to the game as well (higher or lower). Should a grading change occur, it will be clearly noted with the previous grade, the new grade, and why the change occurred. Although this approach is more time consuming and requires many more man hours, our entire goal has always been to provide the best and completely unbiased reviews possible and we feel that the inclusion of the Initial Impressions and Final Impressions sections will give you a better view of what to expect from a new game. All that we ask in return is for you to continue to support Krakrabbit.com by visiting the site and letting others know about our cause. Together we can supply our fellow gamers with the most impartial information so they can make an informed decision on whether to buy or rent this particular title.
Ah Ha: Rock Band is basically the only competitor to Guitar Hero, and it's not even an established name. Although Rock Band is a newcomer to the rhythm department, it is undoubtedly a huge threat to Guitar Hero.The biggest weapon in Rock Band's arsenal is the fact that the game comes with all of the tools needed to become a "Rock Band" (hence the name). The very large game box comes bundled with a few different instruments, with the microphone as an optional after-market instrument. There is no doubt that Rock Band's instruments are all great, and offer undeniable enjoyment that will give the entire family (even the musically inept) fun. Although the instruments feel well put-together, and the quality is unquestionably great, the overall durability of the drums is a little questionable. Also, the drums are disturbingly loud, and you will often have trouble concentrating on your task when there are loud thumps coming from beside you.
Rockin' All Night Long: One of the strongest aspects of Rock Band is the huge variety of songs that you can rock too. There are a massive amount of songs, that come from big name bands and even some from those you haven't even heard of.In addition to the enormous amount of songs that come bundled with the game, you will also be able to download at least one new song every week. This feature adds a huge amount of value to the package, because you will never run out of songs to rock to all night long.
Rent vs. Buy: While you can play just the game without the peripherals, (like Guitar Hero) the game is at its best with the instruments.Rock Band is the best music game that I've played in a long time, and is a fantastic alternative to Guitar Hero is you're sick of rocking alone. The massive music variety allows for limitless replayability, and you will undoubtedly love this. However, if you prefer to go it solo, you might prefer Guitar Hero to Rock Band because Rock Band is meant to be played through with others...so just remember that.
