Konami returns to its rhythmic roots with Rock Revolution, a music game modeled after Rock Band and Guitar Hero: World Tour. Rock Revolution features four ways to make music: drums, guitar, bass, and vocals. While playing an instrument, the goal is to follow on-screen visual cues while tapping or strumming on the supported drum and guitar peripherals. Vocals involve singing into a microphone in a manner similar to the publisher's Karaoke Revolution series. The disc features 40 songs with an option to download additional content (either individual songs or song packs) online.
Artists include Judas Priest, Kiss, Quiet Riot, Metallica, Megadeth, Heart, Ratt, Queen, Rush, the Who, Foo Fighters, and more. Choose from 15 characters and follow a career or challenge others online. The game's "Studio Mode" is notable for allowing you to freely create songs and record your performance on up to eight tracks. Throughout your career, you'll be able to compete in various challenges, create custom set lists, and learn new techniques to master more complicated songs. Online users will be able to display their talents to rest of the Rock Revolution community via real-time scoreboards. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
