Assemble a band, brick by colorful brick, in this family friendly
version of Harmonix Music's popular rhythm series. Featuring the same
level of customization and whimsical humor found in previous lego video
games, lego Rock Band lets you create your own band members, roadies,
and even managers from a variety of individual parts. Completing songs
and rock power challenges earn you studs that can be used to unlock
additional venues, characters, instruments, vehicles, and items for your
personal "rock den." Challenges involve achieving such offbeat feats as
summoning storms, demolishing skyscrapers, and defeating a giant
octopus with the power of music.
As with Rock Band on PSP, the DS version does not require any additional
peripherals to play the drum, singer, guitar, or bass parts, and you
can either focus on mastering one instrument or switch between all four
parts during a song. Twenty-five tracks are included on the cartridge,
all performed by the original artists. Songs include "Let's Dance,"
"Ghostbusters" "Suddenly I See, "So What, "I Want You Back, "Free
Fallin, and more. Up to four players can perform with or against each
other via local wireless connection in a choice of two game modes:
Quickplay and Rock Power Challengers.
