Rock Band Blitz probably won't usher in a new rock game era, but it should prove reasonably fun for those who miss evenings spent rocking out in their living rooms -- assuming they don't mind trying something both a bit different and a little simpler. With no difficulty levels to choose from, veterans may find it a bit easy, though achieving a perfect five stars on most songs is still a challenge prior to unlocking point-boosting power-ups. Plus, folks who like to play with friends will be disappointed that there's no local or online group play. You can pose challenges for your friends, but that's it.

However, when things are clicking and you're in the zone, hopping between instrument tracks in your favorite songs, it can be a blast. Plus, Rock Band fans can access all previous music they've purchased so many players will have no shortage of songs to try. This may not be the second coming of rock-and-roll games, but it is a nice little revisiting.

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.
