Game Review ( The Police Pack 01 - 360 Arcade )

Can't Stand Losing You: 4.75/5 Didn't care for it much at all at first, but it's a great song. Very easy on both guitar and drums, but fantastic song.

Synchronicity II: 4/5 Average song... it was already in Guitar Hero: Rock's the 80's, too. Easy on guitar and pretty easy on drums too.

Roxanne: 4.5/5 A classic. Easy on drums and guitar, though.


[All songs are master tracks.]

Game Review ( Queens of the Stoneage Pack 01 - 360 Arcade )

3's & 7's: 4.5/5 Great song, but it's also in Guitar Hero III. Difficult song on guitar, pretty easy on drums for the most part.

Little Sister: 4.75/5 Even better song. Hard on both guitar and drums...

Sick, Sick, Sick: 4.5/5 So trippy, but so catchy. Once again, hard on guitar and drums.

Game Review ( Metallica Pack 01 -360 Arcade )

The songs in this pack, with the exception of MAYBE "And Justice For All" are pretty damn hard on any instrument you play on. "Blackened" and "Ride the Lightning" are both very difficult on drums, and all three are quite a challenge on guitar. Still, for 440 MSP you're getting your moneys worth. The songs are all quite long, and they're all fun to play.

...And Justice For All: 5/5 Awesome song - it's really long too. A lot of fun on guitar and drums.

Blackened: 4.25/5 I can't beat this song on expert drums and it's the only song in Rock Band I haven't 5*ed yet on expert guitar. It's a good song, but the worst of the three.

Ride the Lightning: 4.5/5 I can't beat this song on expert drums either, although I haven't tried in awhile - the main section is pretty difficult.

Far Less Reviews This Year

I likely will be reviewing a lot less games this year just because I've been barely using my Gamefly. The only thing I've been doing is playing Call of Duty 4 and Rock Band. The only thing I'll be really posting up on a weekly basis will probably be Rock Band songs.

Game Review ( Bankshot Billiards 2 - 360 Arcade )

After months of contemplating on whether or not to get this game, I finally did as the price dropped to 800 MSP.

Graphics: 3.75/5 Kept really simple. Everything looks great, but the fact that every game you play is on the same table is a little depressing.

Sound: 3.5/5 Average background music that occasionally drops out, like Uno. The balls hitting eachother sound great, of course.

Control: 4.5/5 Really very simple. It's basically Yahoo! Pool for your 360. You can turn on aim-assist or off - whatever you please.

Fun: 4/5 Bankshot Billiards is not nearly as bad as people make it seem. It's a lot of fun. Although I haven't even seen a game online, it's still a good single player game, and local multiplayer game. There are several modes, too. Including the traditional 8-Ball, 9-Ball, 14.1 Continuous, Golf, and even Trick Shots. If you like virtual pool games, this is well worth $10. It's not very deep, not many people play it on Live, and the leaderboards are completely messed up, but the game is a good time killer.
