If you like music and you like LEGO--and if you don’t like those two things, your space ship is waiting for you outside--then you’re going to dig LEGO Rock Band. (In stores November 3rd.)
The game lets you build your band, quite literally. Building your lead singer and bass player out of LEGO pieces before watching them take the stage is really exciting, and more importantly, funny.
For some reason, watching a bunch of LEGO pieces perform the theme from “Ghostbusters,” or the Police’s “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic” is absolutely hilarious.
The game features a couple of new modes, like Auto Drum-kick (in case you don't feel like pressing the pedal every other second, or if your leg gets tired) and Super Easy mode for anyone who just kind of wants to keep time with the music, but doesn't want to worry about anything else. (Expert will still be hard as nails, FYI.)
One other big difference between LEGO Rock Band and regular Rock Band: You never fail in this game. Play poorly, and you'll lose LEGO studs. Get yourself together before the end of the song, and you'll get a chance to earn all of those studs back again. (Studs can be used to buy and build vehicles and more band members, or gamers can always focus on decorating their “Rock Den.”)
Sports Gamer only has two weaknesses in life: NERF and LEGO (well, three actually: P. B. & J. sandwiches are the third). Now, if we can only get a NERF Rock Band, I’ll be the happiest gamer on earth.
