The Portable Gamer PSP Review: Rock Band Unplugged

TPG says, "The first thing to realize when you play Rock Band Unplugged is that you must leave your biases at the door – this game isn't attempting to 'simulate' playing a musical instrument at all, and makes no effort to feel like it. This is a game that has set out to approximate the Rock Band experience on your PSP, and the victim in this conversion was any feeling of playing a musical instrument. This is especially apparent when playing the singing parts – there's just absolutely no connection between what you're playing and what is supposed to be happening. I think it would have worked better if for some songs, you had the option to play rhythm guitar or electronics parts instead of the vocals, as this would've felt a lot better than playing vocals. My suggestion is to get over this and to just enjoy the game for what it is instead of what you expect it to be."

Thank. Gods. I really hoped this game wouldn't suck.

As much as I love rock band, it is hard to get behind a game without plastic instruments.

Now I'll go and grab a copy. Sounds worth my $30.

I get the naming scheme but I kind of wish they'd called it something else. Makes me think of MTV Unplugged too much and I expect it all to be acoustic.

I agree. I liked the "Rock Band Portable" name that was thrown out originally. Or I may just be making that up.
