Jason Venter writes: "You might suppose that I would find it easier and easier to review music games each time around, but I find that the opposite is true. It was a simple matter to see differences between Frequency and Amplitude, then from there to see how Guitar Hero and its plastic instruments were a big deal. It was also easy to look at Guitar Hero: Aerosmith and to recognize the refinement that made The Beatles: Rock Band a superior game. Yet with some of the more recent releases within the rhythm genre, the differences between new titles have begun to lose the impact they once had. That leads us to Rock Band 3, which was released so close after Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock that it would be a disservice to everyone if I didn't compare the two titles."
