Is It Any Good?

The Rock Band franchise is one of the best in the music genre, and this mobile version keeps the quality level high. The game comes with a deep collection of music -- 20 songs are available initially -- and finally lets players actually sing the songs, rather than tap the screen along with the lyrics. This "vocal mode" makes the game more immersive (though for tone-deaf players, the tap along option is still available). The game is pretty forgiving with singers, though -- not recognizing lyrics and being extremely generous with pitch. The differentiating features of the iPad version (versus the iPhone version) are minimal and don't really justify the extra $5 in price. It's a well-made and truly fun game, but you're just as well off buying the less expensive iPhone version.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
