great game but needs better songs
dont get me wrong i love the game but it should hava better songs like ''worry rock'' ''castaway'' '' macys day parade'' ''waiting'' and ''lights out'' and many more.
All In All, Fun; But Soundtrack is So-So
Green Day: Rock Band is generally a fun game, and you should have no problem enjoying the gameplay if you were a fan of the other Rock Band/ Guitar Hero games.
My only complaint is that the soundtrack only caters to the mainstream Green Day fan base. Nearly all the tracks are from their 2 new albums with only the notable hits from their early career seeing the light of day.
Green Day had a remarkably impressive catalog of songs in their early days, and its really a disappointment to see that generally NONE of those songs made it on Green Day: Rockband. Nothing from 1039/Smooth, nothing from Kerplunk, nothing from Shenanigans.
It's a real bummer that not all of the Green Day fans can enjoy this.
Pros and Cons
Green Day Rock Band is a great game geared for the punk rock generation. I myself am a lover of all forms of music and I'm a guitar player (6 years).The gameplay is quite excellent and smooth, but as for any "one band game" , or music game in general, it has it's chare of pros and cons. ---Pros--- 1. The game has the best post Rock Band 2 and pre Rock band 3 graphics available right now. 2. You feel as if your watching a real emotional Green Day concert right in your play area. 3. Billie joe and do the other members of the band move and shape their lips to the words rather than just motioning up and down with their mouths. 4. Each band member's personalitys have been captured as you will see while playing through the game. 5. The concert effects are awesome and the crowd's singing sounds amazing. 5. Great song selection. 6. I find the songs to have a great deal of range in terms of challenge levels. Wake me up when september ends and know your enemy are down on the easy side, while as Homecoming and Jesus of Suburbia are more of the hard side. ---Cons--- 1. Lack of songs previous from Dookie (This is because the songs were recorded on old analog tape and it is a risky process of transfering them to more modern day devices.) 2. Campaign mode seems to be lacking a little something. 3. Drums seem to be a little less responsive on this game. (But could be due to tre cool's crazy rifts and fills and that rock band drum kits are not that good in the first place. imo ) 4. Edited tracks, I'm sorry but Green Day says a lotta "Bad Words" but this is THE band's game and there needs to be an option to turn them on. Overall I have found this game to be a great buy (for $50.00 Limited edition, not 70 - 60 ) I do not like the lack of Billie Joe's Signature Guitar "Blue" not being available to buy but w/e. And with rock band 3 on the way, this game will still hold value for any green day fans or punk fans.
BEST GAME EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think this is one of the best games ever, it is really fun for people who really like green day (like me). You'll love it!!!!!!!!!!!! The game is really worth it. GET IT TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
green day favorite rock band.for real!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
One of the better rockbands
Greenday rockband is very good for any one who loves greenday or just likes punk rock music .Most swear words are edited out accept a few,also it It has very simple and easy achievements,and all songs can be exported to any of the rockbands1-3 for 800microsoft points or if you have the export code.Well Green day rock band is not worth retail but if you can get it cheap like 30 to 40 dollars it definetly worth it .overall its just like any rockband accept its geared to one band .
I got this game as a birthday present for my brother. Since he's a huge green day fan, he thoroughly enjoyed the game. However after three or so songs, I felt the game was just getting boring since you're playing as the same people in the same venues with no coherent transitions and storylines. I recommend just getting Rock Band 2 and downloading any green day songs from the music store. It's a better value and you'll have a more varied music library. It is hard to listen to so much green day in such little time. Now this review may be slightly bias, as I do not like music games that feature only one artist. I prefer just the plain Rock Band or Rock Band 2 since they have a more varied selection and thus more varied artists. Plus, there is an awesome world tour mode in those games that cannot be found in green day rock band.
My Favorite Music Game
Being a huge fan of Green Day and Rock Band, this game was a blessing! I purchased the plus addition but have not yet gotten the bonus material. First off, this game is more challenging than other Rock Band and Guitar Hero titles. Green Day's fast riffs and their two epic nine minute songs provide a great challenge starting around hard difficulty. There's even a new drum trainer which is fantastic for learning all of Tre Cool's parts of songs. The graphics and animation are also fantastic. Billie and Tre look great, Mike looks pretty good. The game flows really well and I especially like effects. Not only are there video effects, but pyrotechnics and the audience also reacts. It's a really fun, realistic game and makes you feel like you're right there watching the concert! In addition, when playing 21st Century Breakdown, the backdrop images are exactly the same as the ones from their real concert that I went to last year. That was a great surprise and really added to the realism of the game! This is even more so because of the fact that Billie actually looks like he's saying what he's supposed to be, instead of just his mouth moving with the song. The responsiveness is great too, however some of the fast drumming isn't always detected, however I think that may be just the drum set and not the actual game. In fact the game has this useful calibration system at the beginning which allows customization for responsiveness. The sound is excellent. Your parts stand out and sound crystal clear. The audience also sings along. The controls are great just like every other Rock Band title.. I have no complaints in that area. Finally, the song variety is great! I found all of their new songs that I love as well as their classics from albums like Dookie and Nimrod. There were only a couple of songs that I wish they would have had. For any Green Day or Rock Band fan, this is a must have. The animation and graphics are beautiful, the sound is great, and overall it is a very fun game.
Great For Rock Band Fans or Green Day Fans
This is the secomd best band specific game, the first being The Beatles. This game has a lot of Green Day's best songs. The graphics are great and the animations are awsome. This is a great game for a great band. Green Day is a band that dosen't listen to what critics say about their music and that is one of the things that make tyhem a great band. The songs selestion is great. Only thin Iwish was more from the album "Nimrod", that was a grea album. But, besides that the game is still awsome. It has a bunch of cool videos, like live performces and interviews and a tons of pictures. This is a great game pure and simple. I would suggest this game becuase of it being Green Day and also the fun dosent stop after you export the songs to your Rock band library.
