All the fun of Rock Band plus all the fun of Legos…minus the building stuff…so…All the fun of Rock Band!

You’ve built Star Wars, you’ve built Indiana Jones, you’ve built Batman…now it is time to build your band.  The Lego World has an itch for rock and you’ve got the pieces to scratch it…Now build a better band!  Is someone watching your band’s every move?

Lego Rock Band really seems to push it.  The already flooded game market by the music games questions if another game is warranted and the already flooded market of Lego games also throws that into question…so to combine Lego and Rock Band seems like the no-brainer, but unnecessary.

It isn’t necessary.  The fact that they made this game with Legos means nothing.  There is some ok animation but it isn’t like it is necessary for it to be Lego constructions.  The music is much more family and kid friendly and a lot of downloadable songs won’t transfer to the game.  Another frustrating problem with Lego Rock Band is to keep it “kid friendly” they took off the online play.

The song list is relatively short, with a number of good songs, but for the most part it is a bit weak.  It is a good family friendly game and could work as an introduction to music games for kids with a lot of different levels of difficulty.  The graphics for the game are so-so (it looks like it could have been a last generation game).  The game is for big fans only and shouldn’t be purchased for much if you decide to buy (but it is kind of fun to see Lego versions of Queen).
