Rock Band

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Rock Band is a music video game developed by Harmonix Music Systems the same Company that have made many other Rythum games Like Guitar Hero 1 & 2. It is published by MTV Games, and distributed by EA Distribution, The 1st Rock Band game was released on the 20th November 2007 in the US on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 while the PlayStation 2 version was released on December 18, 2007 and the Wii version was released on June 22, 2008. The game was released in Canada on December 22, 2007 for the box 360 and Playstation3 and for the PlayStation 2 on January 2, 2008. It was released in parts of Europe as a timed exclusive on Xbox 360 on May 23, 2008 with the Playstation 3 slowly following behind on September 12th 2 days before Rock Band 2 was Released on Xbox 360 in the US, Rock Band had 58 songs including:

- Dani California by Red Hot Chili Peppers
- Highway Star by Deep Purple
- Foreplay/Longtime by Boston
- Wont Get Fooled Again by The Who
- Learn To Fly by Foo Fighters

Reusing many gameplay elements from the Guitar Hero series, Rock Band players use peripherals modeled after musical instruments to simulate the performance of rock music. Players must play these instruments in time with musical "notes" as they scroll towards them on the screen. Rock Band expands upon the Guitar Hero series, in that it offers gameplay for drums and vocals, in addition to lead and bass guitars.

Solo Tour uses the same solo play as The Guitar Hero games do by you have to play sets of 4 songs and complete them to get to the next set of songs. The choice of the songs is in the order of difficulty for the chossen instrument thats being used. Players can earn money while they play to buy clothes, new hair and accecories and instruments which they then see when playing a song. These characters that they create can also be used in the Band Tour Mode.
Band World Tour is the game's primary multiplayer mode. It allows any combination of 2-4 local players to create a virtual band, play gigs, and tour a virtual representation of the world Band World Tour mode lets bands play in 41 different venues spanning 17 cities, including Los Angeles, Seattle, Boston, New York, London, Sydney, Stockholm, and Rome. After creating their band, characters, and logo, the players can begin playing concerts in small venues in their hometown until they unlock vans, tour buses and private jets, which unlock other cities and continents. Successful performances also earn the band fans, stars, and in-game cash. Most cities and larger venues require the band to achieve a certain number of fans and stars before they are unlocked. In-game venues are inspired by real-life venues and often display local art styles from each of the represented cities. During Songs Band can be set Objectives to do in the songs like " In the next 3 songs average 4*'s and you will earn 4 times the cash and if you fail you lose 4 times the money earned" and so on.

The Instruments:
The Guitar Controller that is used for Rock Band is shaped after the Fender Stratocaster to be used as the Lead Guitaist and the Bassist. These are similar to the Guitar Hero controllers; the colored fret buttons corresponding to on-screen notes must be held while the strum bar is pressed. The Stratocaster controller has five additional fret buttons of smaller size located on guitar neck, closer to the guitar's main body. These buttons can be used to play all notes in guitar solos (denoted by the note track turning blue) as hammer-ons and pull-offs, without strumming. Additionally, the controller features an effects pickup switch that can toggle between five different effects, which are applied in solos and when Overdrive is activated. "Overdrive" bacically the same as Guitar Heros "Star Power".

The Drum Controller features four rubber drum pads and a kick pedal. The pads have colored rings around the edges that correspond to the notes on-screen, representing the Snare drum (red), Hi-hat (yellow), Tom-Tom (blue), and Crash cymbal (green) (Full List for what each Pad has been used for Bellow. The kick pedal simulates the bass drum, with on-screen notes represented as orange horizontal lines. To use the drum controller, players must strike the pads with the included authentic drum sticks and/or press the kick pedal in time with the scrolling notes on-screen. Drummers can improvise in special "freestyle drum fill" sections of songs, indicated by the columns for each note turning a solid color. Overdrive for drummers can be deployed by hitting the crash cymbal (green note for right-handed configuration) that appears directly after a freestyle drum fill. Harmonix representatives have suggested, "If you can play the drum parts on Expert, you can pretty much play the drums" which is true, Look at Mee (Y).

What each pad has been charted for on the drum controller:

Rock Band's USB Microphone instrument is similar to the model used in the Harmonix-developed Karaoke Revolution games. For the most part, singers are judged on how closely they match the pitch of the song's vocalist. During "talking parts" that do not judge pitch, a phoneme detector will pick up individual vowels and consonants of the spoken lyrics. Some sections without vocals will display circle notes, allowing for the microphone to be used as a tambourine and cowbell by tapping it or making vocal cues. Overdrive for singers can be deployed by singing in freestyle vocal sections of songs, denoted by yellow artwork in the background of the vocals interface.

I has simalar Features to the 1st Rock Band but the Solo Tour changed from the Set Sets you would play and unlock songs to around the same way Band World Tour was On Rock Band 1 just Solo. This Was All intergrated with Online and Multiplayer as well as even if you were the Only band member you could get randoms online or friends to play in your band at anytime to earn different things. There is no Sepeate Band and Solo tour as they are cleverly combinded to both work with and without each other. Solo and Band Quickplay are sill around if you dont want to do the Tour Part of the game,
The Game also fetured a "Drum Trainer" with Over 70 beats and Fill that you can practice from 40Bpm to 200Bpm and 100% them to complete them. Also there is a "Free Style Mode" So you can play what ever you want. You can even Press the Xbox Button or Ps Button and play Music of your HDD and play along with it.
