As the market has now reached saturation point (surely?!) with button-mashing music games for the time being, it's only natural that their prices should be yo-yoing more than James Bond's pants. Today we bring news of a drop in price for LEGO Rock Band, the altogether preferable kiddie music option as opposed to Band Hero, which sucked.
Game is having a console-wide sale on the title, with prices on all copies falling to £15.99 which'll save you around £2 across the board on the nearest competitors.

With a soundtrack geared towards younger gamers, LEGO Rock Band is all about popular songs, more button mashing, and all of the cutesy fun we've learned to expect from developers Travellers Tales after successfully taking on Star Wars, Batman and Indiana Jones. One of the best bits of the game is that there are special challenges along the way as your LEGO musical heroes tour the land that sees your band having to rock out to fight off the odd giant LEGO octopus, or demolish a building or two.
There are other tweaks such as a 'Super Easy' difficulty level and an auto-kick drum setting to allow budding John Bonhams to bash the hell out of the pads without having to worry about footwork. Seeing a shirtless LEGO Iggy Pop prance around the stage is a very special thing to behold, and this is a game that oozes charm. To be honest, the soundtrack is a bit hit and miss, and Band Hero is probably the better game for tween-pleasers, but again the big plus for the series is that you can export the entire game's library onto your hard drive for a small fee. I like the soundtrack and there are a good number of popular songs, but perhaps not quite enough for this title. That said, £16 is still a great price for such a well presented and well crafted game.
