Hey there, Nathan here again. It’s been a little while, but I’m back and ready for action.
Sad to say I haven’t really played many new games in the past little while (been trying to beat old ones over again on harder difficulties) but I have played the Rock Band: AC/DC Track Pack. What a game!
If you don’t like AC/DC, then you won’t like this game. But if you do like AC/DC, even in the least, and are only familiar with songs like “Thunderstruck” and “Back In Black” (both included on the game) then you’ll definitely find this game fun. Especially if you just like Rock Band in general.
The game is comprised of about 18 songs, all of which are fun, with the feeling that you’re actually a part of the concert. I’ve only played it on the PS2, as that’s what I have and need to upgrade, but from that, the characters are the same the whole way through, which is nice and reasonable. The songs are all live, so that’s even better, and there’s lots of great fills and solos and drum beats and whatnot. Although I must say you’ve got to be able to step up to the challenge on singing. If you’ve heard ANYTHING by AC/DC then you know that the vocals are extremely high. But it’s still fun nonetheless.
I found that the guitar was great: True to the songs that AC/DC fans know and love, with lots of little riffs here and there as they were all taken from a live concert. And you know how there’s good live versions and then there’s… well, not so good live versions? Well yeah, these are the GOOD live versions. But anyway, the guitar stuff was great, as was the drumming. Oh man, I loved drumming songs like “TNT” and “Hell’s Bells”. Great fun, great fun. Nice steady beats with occasional rat-a-tat-tats and drum fills. And like I said, the singing was good, but you gotta know what you’re getting into when you step up to the mic. And bass was alright, some of it was even as crazy as regular guitar, but I’m not a bass guy…I try to avoid playing bass whenever possible.
Also, I found the track listing to be a nice healthy mix. New and old, fast and slow, well known songs and songs only die-hard fans have even heard of. With songs like “Let There Be Rock”, “The Jack”, “Money Talks”, and “You Shook Me All Night Long”, along with ones previously mentioned and others, this is a game for anyone, as long as you like AC/DC, Rock Band, and having fun.
