Critic Reviews for Rock Band 4

Building on its impressive back catalogue, Rock Band 4 is a rock-solid return for the stalwart music game.

Rock Band 4 makes smart choices in bringing the series back, even if its setlist is somewhat disappointing.

With superb gameplay enhancements like freestyle soloing, and support not only for existing instruments but thousands of legacy DLC tracks, this is the new benchmark for rhythm action gaming.

A welcome return for multiplayer music games, even if there's relatively little new to add to the experience – and a few things that have been taken out.

A slick and engaging way to enjoy interactive music, albeit with fewer bells and whistles than Rock Band 3

Rock Band 4 is stripped down to the essentials, but despite its leanness, it's pulled off something encouraging: It's made me want to play Rock Band again, even after the dozens of hours and countless parties I've spent with the series. It isn't Harmonix's boldest or biggest game. But Rock Band 4 lays a foundation for Harmonix to move forward.

Rock Band 4 recaptures the unadulterated gratification that made the series such a hit half a decade ago, but mainly because it's a relatively unchanged, repackaged Rock Band 2. A lack of content and general stagnation hold this particular iteration of Rock Band back, but new ideas like Freestyle Solos genuinely enhance the core experience, which remains a sincere and joyful celebration of music.

It's Rock Band for a new generation (of consoles). Same great taste as the previous games. Tour mode is the best single player experience in the series. Relatively bare bones compared to previous release. Initial song list too small to support tour mode.
