IGN: Rock Band Unplugged Review

Rock Band Unplugged is a blast and IGN highly recommends it to people looking to jam on the go, but you do need to examine the cost/benefit side of things. Yes, the gameplay is amazing and a ton of fun, but this is well-worn territory of fans for the franchise. If playing World Tour gigs and hitting up Band Survival Mode every now and again is good enough for you great. However, without any multiplayer you lose the true incentive to download new music and to keep this game forever and ever. Again, the game is impressive, but it falls a bit short of the bar the franchise has set in the past.

Who could complain about that?

It really is awesome. If you have ever played a Rock Band title this game feels really familiar. Most of the songs are from RB2. It gets really addictive and the on the go factor makes for a perfect time killer.

I played this and is there anyway to actually play with only 1 instrument in the tour mode, as switching instruments really is crap..

Anyone know when it comes out in UK ???

DNAgent3489d ago

You can only choose to play 1 instrument in Warmup mode (you can still switch instruments anytime during the song but it's not necessary).

It would have been cool to jam with three of your friends on the bus or something.

If not, than this is just a marketing fluke aimed at the drags of gaming/music society.

Nirvana is overrated.Pearl Jam was always superior

NegativeCreep4273489d ago

Just look at the numbers and all the current-gen music artists that refer back to Nirvana more than Pearl Jam.
