I'm sure some of you were a bit skeptical when LRB was announced. Some even dismissed it as "a glorified track pack." Even myself, a diehard fan, was a bit reserved.
But now that it has been out a while, I think it has surpassed my expectations in a very positive way. It has even included a few new wrinkles which I would love to see in the main game. So I thought I'd throw out a discussion thread for others to post their "pleasant surprises" which made LRB great.
Setlist - Wasn't initially a big fan of the setlist, but after playing though it, I found a few new gems which I quite enjoy. And the song list has proven very popular in party/family settings.
Engine tweaks - From small improvements like the new 5 star "ding" sound, to the foot pedal "cheat" on drums, recovery mode, and even "super easy" for 5 year olds. These have all proven cool/useful at various times.
Artwork - There's a microphone shaped like an ice cream cone. I've been asking for that in the game for like 2 years. Amazing! Also, the minifig assortment from RB2 standins to pirates and aliens has proven adorable.
