When gaming meets music it’s easy to get bogged down in the details.
According to MusicRadar’s The Beatles: Rock Band review, for example, the screen version of Shea Stadium is pretty accurate in terms of the Fab 4’s costumes and haircuts - it’s just that the setlist fails miserably. And surely John Lennon would never strum a J-160E during If I Needed… erm, hang on. It’s supposed to be fun!
Enter Lego Rock Band - the game that turns your favourite rock star into Lego and your favourite stage (according to GamesRadar’s hands-on preview) into a "giant, ticked-off octopus" with blatent disregard for real life. Hooray.
Still, being the musical perfectionists that we are, there’s always time to inspect and compare the block-like avatars that we’ve had the pleasure of raising a collective eyebrow at so far.
