Rock Band VR
Party 23 March 2017
A spin-off of a popular music game series developed over the years by Harmonix Music Systems. The largest novelty which distinguishes Rock Band VR from the main installments is obviously the support of Virtual Reality goggles. Subsequent performances are viewed here from the first-person perspective. Apart from that, however, the Rock Band gameplay formula remains unchanged. Once again, the player assumes the roles of individual rock band members in order to play the part of a drummer, guitarist or a singer, trying to recreate a given song to the best of their ability through pressing adequate buttons at the right time and linking them into combinations by doing so. The better the quality of one's performance, the larger the score. What is also worth noticing, is that members of a power metal band DragonForce took part in both the game's production process and its commercial campaign.
Rock Band 4
Party 06 October 2015
The fourth major installment of the popular music game series that was started in 2007 by Harmonix, the creators of a similar franchise called Guitar Hero. In the title, we assume the role of rock band members — a guitarist, a vocalist, or a drummer (keyboard, introduced in Rock Band 3, is no longer available). Depending on our role in the band, the fun boils down to rhythmically pressing the keys of the virtual instrument, tapping the beat on a special drum kit, or recreating the vocals as faithfully as possible. For the purposes of the game, designed with next-gen platforms in mind, new versions of the existing instruments were created, although the production supports all older editions, as well. Apart from a large set of new tracks, we can also use every song we had bought in the previous installments of the Rock Band series so we don’t have to buy them again.
Rock Band Blitz
Party 28 August 2012
The next installment of the popular series of music games, this time slightly different from the main assumptions of its predecessors. The biggest changes affected the control - the creators returned to the classic pad, and the settlers went to plastic instruments, which made a furore on the occasion of the earlier parts.
