Thanks for the review, Doc! Did you ever play Frequency or Amplitude (both of which I enjoyed a lot), and if so, how did the gameplay compare to those?
Yes indeed, adding a key lane adds difficulty and its easy enough to forget about the key lane thatthe game reminds you in the tutorial not to forget.
The only way to find fault is to expect it to be more than it is, and that will happen. There are people who chub up at every opportinity to be d-bags and rip stuff apart but hey everyone needs a hobby I guess. ;)
At face value, its more than I was expecting and incredibly fun. Hence my review.
I could not imagine resigning myself to such a miserable existance... Not that I am refering to anyone specifically of course... Just sayin'
Ya know, I have not.
My reverse compatable PS3 died so I never picked up the PS2 discs.
An important thing, is it possible to GS every song or will some songs like Song of the Century be like Polly on drums for RB2 (Impossible to get higher than 3 stars).
Is it fair to say that for average-ish songs, the vocal lane is the one you really have to watch in terms of not letting its multiplier fall too far behind the others? Bang Camaro is really sparse in the vocal department so I don't think it was a great choice for that preview video that most of us have seen.
They do come and go. Its kind of like fishing in that once you see a multiplier you need to hit that lane and hit notes to reel it in, otherwise it swims upstream.
It's a trip watching for the multipliers on all the streams at the same time. Multi-Tasking-Amundo.
Thanks for the review doc. I'm looking forward to playing it, though I've never done well on anything other than Rockband. I can see this is gonna open up a whole new world for me. Can't wait.
No doubt it will be fun, and it's a day one buy, but you know how it is. And besides, it does have a definite flaw: it isn't out yet!
