Editorial Review

LEGO Rock Band merges two of the most popular video game franchises to deliver a unique family-friendly music experience that will take tweens, teens, families and gamers of all ages on a wild journey to rock stardom in order to "Build a Band and Rock the Universe." Combining authentic rhythm/music gaming experience of Rock Band with the accessibility, customization and humor of LEGO games, LEGO Rock Band allows players to create their own unique rock star style and customize their own avatars, band members, roadies, and managers.

Gameplay
Action in LEGO Rock Band for DS is true to the Rock Band standard of play found in other releases in the franchise, only with a LEGO twist. Your goal is to run through a succession of rock tinged, family friendly song tracks with your band. Bandmates are indicated by four separate avatars representing your guitar player, bass guitarist, drummer and vocalist. The game doesn't need a peripheral like other music games on the DS, instead the player indicates the appropriate rhythm for each bandmate in turn through a combination of the DS' D-Pad, face buttons, mic and eventually its stylus. Players switch between parts using the shoulder buttons. The game also supports 2-4 person multiplayer over a DS multi-card Wi-Fi connection. One of the fun LEGO influences is in the tablature flowing across the screen that directs your play. This is in the form of LEGO blocks color coded for each controller. As with all Rock Band games, consistency gains the player multipliers which earns them more points. As players successfully complete songs and rock challenges, they can collect LEGO 'studs,' with which they can customize their avatar and other in-game goodies in true LEGO Snap-On fashion. In addition, players can unlock additional content and collect amazing vehicles, which can be used to transport their band from local gigs at rock clubs to epic stadium shows and even fantasy settings on Earth and beyond. The game contains a variety of play modes including Quickplay and Challenge, which guarantees varied gameplay.
