Canadian Online Gamers - "It doesn’t seem that long ago that I was rocking out on the Xbox with my collection of plastic instruments to songs that I wish I really knew how to play. I used to regularly have friends over and spend hours enjoying band-simulation games, but over time we did it less and less, and started to find it cumbersome to set up all the instruments every time. Well, Harmonix has found a way to pull back me back to the music of Rock Band without need of the instruments: Rock Band Blitz. Wait a second, a Rock Band game that doesn’t use the instruments? Yes, a standard controller is all you need and after some extended play it works surprisingly well."
