New LEGO® Rock Band drops Christmas 2009!

 As if making a Rock Band/Guitar Hero game for almost every single band to ever play a cover on any stage wasn’t enough. Now, we are scheduled to endure yet another tragedy of a game, if you could even call it that; LEGO® Rock Band is due to hit shelves Christmas 2009.

 Don’t get me wrong, I enjoying rocking out to modern and classic rock songs as much as the next guy. The problem is that at some point between Guitar Hero: World Tour and Rock Band: Country Hits, I felt as if I was being forced to watch another remake of Friday the 13th. This latest “LEGO” version is just icing on an already stale cake. Although, the track listing for the newest installment of the Rock Band series is rather robust and contains songs that everyone loves, it just feels like more of the same.

By the way, adding the term “LEGO” to your title doesn’t make the game anymore fun or change anything other than the characters on the screen. I have been playing these games since the original Guitar Hero came out for PS2, and one thing that I can assure you is that of all the things that I notice during gameplay the on screen characters and scenery is rarely one of them. It might just be me, but by the time that I am playing on medium I have to watch every key that is coming up, and rarely do my eyes leave the scrolling neck of the guitar. I have no idea what the sudden fascination with everything LEGO®, but with the sudden influx of LEGO® games it’s starting to become very overdone.

I think that like every other Rock Band/Guitar Hero game the sales will be there. But, like I mentioned above, just as people are going to pay to see classic horror movie remakes, people will purchase this game; that doesn’t make the game any better or even worth the purchase. Just like all of those awful horror remakes, I believe that this game will also leave the buyer with that feeling of dissatisfaction.

Are you a fan of the LEGO® series? What about the Rock Band/Guitar Hero games? Leave a comment let people know what you think…
