They’ve already got their plastic hooks into Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Batman, and now we what do we find? Lego characters head banging in Rock Band. So if you own Rock Band, you can now pick up a copy of Lego Rock Band for £13.93 from The Hut. The price is usually £14.93 but entering the voucher code BANK1 will allow you to knock off an extra quid. Next best price comes in at £15.99 from Amazon.
The reason you'll need to already own a copy of Rock Band before you buy the lego version is that LRB is not available as a bundle pack. This means that you can't buy the game with all the accompanying instruments, so this purchase is pretty pointless for anyone who doesn't have RB. But of course, if you've already got Rock Band, then what’s the incentive to but LRB? Well, apart from a fairly eclectic set list which contains some fairly decent rock tracks and the likes of Kung-Fu Fighting and theme from Ghostbusters, all you’re really getting is the cute, Lego-style presentation.
However this is actually done really well, and the outlandish venues, which range from castles to haunted houses to UFOs are arguably better than the background scenes you get in Rock Band. LRB is also far more forgiving than the original. Even when notes are struck way out of time, the game lets you off with a generous margin of error which, along with the visuals, makes the whole thing very accessible for kids. This isn’t a purchase which everyone is going view as worthwhile, but if you have a fetish about Lego and don’t mind paying for some extra tunes when the originals get boring, you’re sure to find the whole thing quite endearing.
