Rock Band: AC/DC Live £5.85 @ ShopTo [Wii Games]Although Rockband: AC/DC Live offers a rather superficial in-game experience compared with the likes of Rockband and Rockband 2, it still contains a fantastic selection of tracks. All 18 songs are of surprisingly high quality and have been recorded live; making Rockband: AC/DC a worthwhile purchase for any genuine fans of the band. The price has now fallen to £5.85 from Shopto which beats the next best deal by exactly £3.

So long as it’s the music that you’re primarily interested in, then Rockband: AC/DC won’t disappoint. However, given that the game lacks many features which fans of Rockband and Guitar Hero have come to expect, the package might come across as a little lackluster. Rockband: AC/DC Live lacks any real World Tour Mode, there is no online play, hardly any character customization options, no cash to collect, and nothing to unlock. Your on-screen character is randomly generated and you get no reward for completing songs (apart from the personnel satisfaction of course).

However – although it’s a shame that you cannot export the tracks to Rockband in the Wii version - Rockband: AC/DC Live does deliver some great tunes. And if collecting money and buying alternative outfits for your on-screen avatar doesn’t really interest you, then you might enjoy the minimalistic approach. It’s probably not the wisest purchase for someone looking to buy their first standalone-music-game, but for just over £5, Rockband: AC/DC is worth it just for the quality of the song selection.

I got this off Amazon for £3.75 + £1.99 P+P, which works out a tiny bit cheaper than this deal. Its no longer there at that price though, and for the sake of 10p, this is a cracking deal. Played it drunk for the first time the other night and found it hilarious every time I scored 5 stars on the final note! Good fun, especially if you're an AC/DC fan preparing for the Download Festival.
