I played rockband, its cool but I'd stick to GH3. In Rockband the guitar was the best and the most fun instrument. The drums are OK. You can't bash them like you would a real drum set, its more of a tap-tap-tap; a bummer if you ask me. Karaoke, no way in hell do I do that so basically that leaves just the guitars.
Don't get me wrong, it is fun but the best part is really the same as GH imo. I can see Rockband being more of a party game though due to the variety. GH3 is better if you're going solo or just playing with one or two other people.
I never got interested in rockband. I never played it before but if I play the game, the only instrument I would be interested in is the guitar mainly because I'm so used to guitar hero. And someone mentioned that the guitar in Rockband is a lot more easy. That sucks. The fact that expert in GH3 is so complicated makes the game insanely fun. Im sure there's gotta be some impossible songs in rockband. Playing dragonforce, cliffs of dover, impulse, Slipknot, Disturbed, Devil down to georgia, etc. all in guitar hero 3 are so fun to play
I just bought Rockband yesterday for my little bro for christmas..Do you guys think it is too hard for a 6-7 year old to play the drums or sing...IS the easy setting actually easy, he is good at games but this might be different.
