ROCK BAND 4 [PG]
PS4, XBOX ONE / $100 — $500 / OUT NOW
Rock Band has returned after a five-year hiatus. Developer Harmonix has refined the experience, but this is more of the same. That’s good, as few games can match the energy of a four-player Rock Band session, and that’s now paired with an excellent career mode and cool solo technology. It’s also simple to sign band members in and out, and to adjust individual difficulty on the fly. The 65 songs on disc aren’t the best, but access to the series’ 1500 strong back catalogue is a godsend.
