Lego Rock Band is one of my all time favourite ds games so I thought I would tell you all about it!
Lego Rock Band is a music game for the ds to play you need to become a member of the lego band. your choices are lead and bass guitar, drums and vocals. As you play you earn points which go towards lego and allow you to add different things to your band and for your band like instruments and vehicles to get you to gigs as well as funky outfits and new hair.
You play the game to some great tunes I will tell you about later, you can play in two ways either with your stylus or with control pad keys. When the game plays you have to tap or press the right button at the correct time to play your instrument or sing to the beat depending on who you are, the more you get right the more points you get for buying lego with. The aim is to keep all band members happy and to do this you need to play the right combination then wait til the purple note appears which makes that band member very happy then switch to another band member. There are 5 difficulty levels you can chose from each time you play the harder you select the quicker you need to be on the keys or stylus.
You can play in quick play mode to practice or tour mode which is the story of your bands rise to fame the more vehicles you collect as you play the more gigs they can get you too and the more famous you become.
You can play with up to 3 friends at anyone time through the ds connection feature you each take on a member of the band to win the game.

This game is fab I really enjoy playing it and was pleasantly suprised that the tracks on the game are originals you find yourself singing away as you play which is great you get really involved in your band. The game play is addictive you want to keep playing to get higher scores unlock new songs and new accessories. The game can be played by 3+ year olds my friends daughter who is 4 enjoys it she can't play it exactly right but she enjoys singing to the songs and pressing the pretty colours that come on the screen.
5 stars recommended.
