Games like Guitar Hero and Rockband deserve a lot of recognition for the fact they get kids listening to some really classic rock tracks they might never have otherwise experienced. Although everyone likes to have a pop at them, including the likes of Jack White who described it as ‘sad’ that modern day kids play music computer games, at least our children are getting a good education.
So if you’re someone who appreciates quality rock music (and you know AC/DC falls into that category) and you want to wean your kids away from listening to the likes of Busted and McFly, then you won’t be disappointed with AC/DC Live Rockband. The game is currently going for £11.99 at Play.com, with the next best price way up there at £17.99.
But do be warned, for some reason the Nintendo Wii version of the game doesn’t let you export the tracks to Rockband and Rockband 2 like the PS3 and Xbox 360. This is slightly annoying because, as a stand alone game, really all you’re getting in this package is a track pack. There is no online play, you cannot customize your rock star, there are no challenges, nothing to unlock and no money to earn.
But before you close this browser in complete disgust, just remember that you are getting the chance to play along with AC/DC, and that’s what’s important. All those features are pointless, so stop whingeing, get out your guitar and just feel the damn music.
