I don't know how many of you saw it but X-Play reviewed LRB today and I couldn't believe how much they twisted the truth and felt the need to discuss it here.
1. "The difficulty levels have been adjusted to make it a tad bit easier"
To me it seems pretty obvious that the charting hasn't changed, as x-play makes it sound like, instead easier songs have been selected. If the difficulty levels had been "adjusted" then satch boogie wouldn't be OMGWTFBBQ, it would just be OMGWTF, if you know what i mean
2. "Super easy was probably made for the color blind"
Being color blind wouldn't change your ability to play the game, take http://www.youtube.com/user/vildiil for example
3. "LRB has all the same modes that all the other rythym games feature"
Normally I'd let this fly but taking out score duel, tug of war, and all online seem to be major changes. They also go on to mention Rock Power Challenges, acting as if they are the same as say GH5 challenges when instead they are a new concept.
4."The game is mainly comprised of pop tunes"
This may be mainly true but in the end there are many non-pop songs that really make the setlist stand out from say, Band Hero.
5. "Where's the Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift Pop Cuts for the kids?"
Sure, the question is legitimate but in reality this is making fun of the game and not providing criticism or comment, the purpose of a review. The way Morgan Webb says this as well, finishing with "oh god why?" is completely irrevelant to the game and is admittedly funny but still could be misleading
Overall I think that they did give it a 4/5 and I realize x-play is a tv show that is meant to be entertaining but I just couldn't stand this review and felt the need to see if I was the only one who felt this way, maybe even a little bit offended. I wasn't sure whether discussing reviews is allowed or tolerated on the RB forums but I mean we are talking about Lego Rock Band so I just went with it
