The style of game is completely different than the normal Rock Band games and it's why I specifically bought this game and not Rock Band 3. Its been years since there has been a console version of a rhythm game similar to Amplitude and Frequency on the Playstation 2. Many of us have waited years for a game like Rock Band Blitz. and what we get is a game that essentially has a self destruct timer built into it. That is unacceptable. There is no excuse for this happening. It's a very simple fix to make as well. If Harmonix at all cares about its customers it needs to patch this game and make it fully functional offline. I am actually pretty shocked they have done something like this. I had a pretty high opinion of them as a developer before. I feel betrayed by this. What are they gaining by making it broken offline? We have already given them our money. Why aren't we allowed to play the game we paid for?
Most people couldn't even fathom that the singleplayer in their game would stop working once the online server for a game went offline, but Harmonix has done just that with Rock Band Blitz. A game you bought should work. It's very simple. This isn't like losing online multiplayer or leaderboards with a server shutdown for a game. In Rock Band Blitz essential parts of the game will break once the game's online servers go offline. This is like playing a Mario game where one day all your power-ups disappear, or playing a first person shooter and one day all your weapons disappear in the single player mode.
