Hell fucking yeah!
Over the last few years, I have noticed that I am less and less excited for new games coming out. But back in November of last year, Rock Band really knocked my socks off. I had played some Guitar Hero before, but the style of the game (being stuck with their personas and all that) just left me less than thrilled. Sure, it was fun to play sometimes, but only really fun when you had someone else in the room to play with. When I got Rock Band, however, that changed. With the fully customizable avatars and being able to play four people at a time AND do more than just play guitar, I finally got excited about a game.
We’ve had a few parties at the house, and I have gone to a few other parties, and Rock Band plays so well as a party game. With four people able to play at once and easily being able to rotate people in and out, and especially with the big 102″ screen and the large room to play in, everyone really gets into it. Its not the stand still staccato snoozefest that Guitar Hero always ended up being, with one or two people staring intently at the screen clacking away on the strum bar and tapping out colored notes. This was a band, and bands rock!
Now I need to officially begin saving up my money so that Rock Band 2 can find its way into our home…
