IGN: Pre-E3 2007: Rock Band Hands-on Plus New Screens

IGN's Tal Blevins and Jeremy Dunham share their impressions on Rock Band.

Harmonix also revealed a bit about the various game modes. In addition to the basic "Tutorial" feature that you'd expect, there's also a "Practice Mode" that allows users to pull out any segment of a song to be played at whatever speed they want. "Solo Tour Mode" lets players pick a single instrument and hit the hitchhiker circuit for what's essentially a single-player career, while "Band World Tour" is undoubtedly the game's meatiest addition. In it, you'll be able to form your own band online (or off) and move from small town gigs all the way to stadium-sized locations while earning "fame and fortune" to get the stuff you need. Luckily, if any of those options sound too time-consuming for you, there's also a "Quickplay Mode" for easy single-song jamming. (PS3, Rock Band, Xbox 360)

I love GH2, so I will probably pick this up - the guitar looks sweet.

But I dunno about the drums, as a drummer myself, I really don't think the playing on the pads could match up to playing on a real kit......

This game is gonna own!!!
I'm also in a band (lead vocals). I don't think people buy this game hoping to learn how to play real instruments. It however is the closest thing to being in a real band for most people ( Talking about guitar hero) and for to a certain extent comes kinda close. I feel so nerdy for saying that but it's true. I will definately get this game just to hear and play all the cool tracks.

The original master recording of Blue Oyster Cults - Don't Fear (The Reaper).....I nearly came in my pants! This is going to be awesome to play!

100+ downloadable tracks within the first year!! Wow! Hopefully they'll release the track individually and not in packs like they did with the X360 GH2 3 track packs.

The drums look pretty cool as well. It's going to be awesome with 4 players in the same room....that's if it's not too expensive for the kit!

GH3 has got some MAJOR competition! All we need now is a Rock Band release date!
