It was less than two weeks ago since EA announced it was bringing the mega-popular Rock Band franchise to the App Store, so it was a bit of a surprise to see it land over the weekend.
Rock Band takes the ‘tap-along’ music/rhythm gameplay to a new level not only because of the long list of hit tracks, but because it allows you to put together a virtual band and rock out via (up to) four-player Bluetooth multiplayer for the first time ever on the iPhone.
There’s even an asynchronous multiplayer system connecting players through Facebook that allows you to lay down your respective tracks individually.
Guitar, bass, drums and vocals are all included, with varying levels of difficulty as your rock god prowess improves. And once you’re ready for more music, the in-game store is always open for you to purchase additional tracks.
This isn’t a cheap game, though, weighing in at full price of £5.00/$9.99, so check out our hands on preview and the full track listing before you head out on stage.
