I personally feel as though this game is underrated. The setlist has a lot of really cool songs (such as The Final Countdown, Fire, Grace and Breakout to a name a few), the visuals are cute and charming, and it plays just like Rock Band. I loved how they even managed to make the menus look both like Rock Band and like Lego (the tiger on the main menu is what instantly springs to mind).
Like others have said, it's all about the songs. If there are at least 10 songs on there you want, pick it up without hesitation. You can always trade it in after you're done with it (just make sure you export).
My only complaint about the game is that it loads a lot. Long loads too.
For me, as soon as I first heard the opening to that Monster song, I felt a little bit of déjà vu or nostalgia kick in, deep from within my cerebral cortex. Loved that song and I don't even remember knowing where I'd first heard it, it was just that opening riff.
But I definitely agree that if you can find it cheap enough, then the setlist alone makes it worth it. I found it at Wal-Mart for $30, and that was good enough for me. The lego bricks instead of rectangular notes was a cute touch, but the soundtrack is awesome. It's probably my favorite setlist in any Rock Band game. Short and Sweet's second guitar solo has become my favorite guitar solo in all of Rock Band.
Lego is borring. Only good thing i got from it, was the 1000 gamerpoints.
Considering its average review score was a 7, its underrated
I have always wanted to get LEGO rock band. I have always been a fan of Rock Band. It's awesome! I haven't gotten it yet either. I might get it now that I read all the comments.
Is it overrated?
Short answer: NO!!!
