G4TV- Harmonix’s Rock Band franchise has been laying low since the release of Rock Band 3, with yearly releases of high-profile plastic-instrument orgies a relic of gaming days gone by. But Rock Band Blitz, an upcoming downloadable title, points to a bright, but scaled down future for the series.
Blitz is a downloadable music game along the lines of Amplitude or Frequency that aims to take the rhythms and melodies from your favorite music and transform them into gaming elements in a flat-out action arcade game. It’s part-beat matching, part pinball, and judging from my playtime, all fast-paced, arcadey fun, especially if you’re a music fan. If you hate music, maybe do something else.
