"The definitive music game on the Wii"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Without a doubt, RB3 is the best choice of music game available on the Wii to date.

A step up on Rock Band 2, the game boasts better graphics, a streamlined interface and continues to have an impressive song set – within the game and as extra paid for DLC. You can also import songs from Rock Band 2 and Green Day: Rock Band, which is a seamless process. While the Guitar Hero series seems to continue with “more of the same,” Harmonix has added further gameplay through the “Pro Mode.”

It's not without fault, there seems to be an odd slowdown once a song ends and I've played a couple of songs where there has been a hovering guitar and nothing where a band member should be. While it is a step up on the Wii to import songs from previous titles, you are currently restricted to 2 prior games. The other consoles allow you to import AC/DC Rock Band, Rock Band 1 and Lego Rock Band. Hopefully, they will fix this in the future. It also requires a significant investment in new hardware if you want to play the Pro mode (which I don't think is available yet.)

It's a step in the right direction and a definite must buy if you're invested in Wii music games.

RB3 is just like it's recently shut-down counterpart Guitar Hero, but with WAY more music and game play options, especially online and if you have any of the Pro peripherals.

Description

Featuring an incredible 83-song setlist and access to far more music than any other music game, as well as innovative new gameplay modes, Rock Band 3 will change the way fans think about and play music games. This next iteration in the Rock Band platform has something new for everyone and also supports traditional Rock Band gameplay with players’ existing instruments.

The Most Music.
The Rock Band 3 disc soundtrack contains 83 of the best bands from around the world, including bands that have never appeared in a music game, as well as support for existing Rock Band tracks (Rock Band and Rock Band 2 discs, downloaded songs, track packs, AC/DC Live: Rock Band™ Track Pack, LEGO Rock Band and Green Day: Rock Band).

Additionally, Rock Band 3 will give players immediate access to a music library approaching 2,000 songs by launch, with new content added regularly. Rock Band’s gigantic music selection dwarfs that of any other music game on the market.

Redesigned Library for Better Music Management
Rock Band 3 allows players to create and save setlists and share them with friends, both in-game and through RockBand.com. New song filters make it easier to find the types of songs fans want to play and hide the songs they don’t, while a built-in song recommendation system will suggest tracks from Rock Band’s colossal music library, based on personal fan preference.

Go Pro: Play Just for Fun or Rock for Real with Rock Band Pro
Rock Band 3 empowers players to develop actual musical skills through the fun of fully scalable Rock Band Pro gameplay. Fans can dive in on Easy to try out basic skills and work their way up to Expert for real mastery.

Something for Everyone (New Gameplay Modes!)
For the casual player, Rock Band 3 has great new party modes that allow fans to get rocking with friends quicker than ever, including party shuffle and persistent drop-in/drop-out and difficulty selection from any gameplay screen. For the serious player, the revamped Career Mode features 700+ goals and rewards and seamless leaderboard integration for an endlessly deep campaign experience. Rock Band 3 also adds a suite of social networking tools to the game so fans can engage friends and fellow rockers over Facebook, Twitter and more. Whether players want to jump in for a quick song or take their band to the top, Rock Band 3 has a mode for everyone.
