Can’t stop (addicted to the shindig…or, rather, Rock Band) December 22, 2007

Today was going to see a brief ‘initial impressions’ piece about Rock Band on the PS3, but unfortunately I’ve spent most of the evening playing the damn thing instead of writing about it. I’m about forty songs into the Career Mode on guitar, and I’ve played a few odd songs on the drums. Basically: it’s amazing. The peripherals are of surprisingly sturdy quality, given the price (the equivalent of around eighty British pounds), with the drumkit being the biggest gaming peripheral I’ve ever had the pleasure of plonking down in the middle of my front room. And with a brilliant selection of songs, far better note placement than Guitar Hero III, and better atmosphere all round – crowd singing equals instant goosebumps – the guitar section alone is better than Activision’s effort.

Expect more detailed info tomorrow night. I’ll just finish by saying that this is easily the best PS3 game of the year.
