LEGO: Rock Band tier predictions

I was bored so I decided to throw this together. I debated how to do this but in the end decided to keep our 0-6 scale. At first I was going to cut all of the extras from the final tier, but that left me with 3 songs in the last tier and something about 3 songs in tier 6 didn't seem right. So, I decided to cut one from the first tier also and have 4 final tier songs. Also, obviously the songs are weighted against each other and will have different tiers in RB2... It's late and I did this quick, so I probably messed up somewhere here. Let me know what you think!

    I played the demo.
    Kung Fu Fighting was kind of hard (about 5 O)
    Drums on I Want you back was very easy, about the same as ABC : 1 O
    Drums on You give love a bad name wasn't that easy but not that hard either : 2 O
    So What on drums was trickier that I tought : 3 O

    A punk will be pretty low on guitar and band IMO. Also The passenger will be pretty high on vocals.

    Some tiers have already been confirmed. For instance, Aliens Exist is Devil teir on band.

    It's one of my posts in the LEGO Rock Band thread. If you really want to see them, you can.

    Crocodile Rock is not going to be that hard on vox, I don't think. Kung Fu Fighting is actually kind of all over the place when you're not doing the chorus, so I defintely understand that one. The Passenger has kind of a big range, but it's intuitive and pretty repetitive, so I imagine it being like mid-tier (3 or 4).

    I could actually see Hendrix being flame vocals as well, so maybe that one will be the "game-ender."

    I'm sure they will. LRB was probably treated like other RB games, which means it's song ratings are in proportion to each other.

    If RB1 tiers changed in RB2 I don't see why LRB's wouldn't.

    So will this be like TB:RB where even all the last tier songs aren't too bad, or will these songs actually be challenging?

    listening through the songs, the guitar is easier on most songs (not all) but everything else has it's challenges

    especially vocals

    Maybe, I guess it depends on what they chart to guitar on "A-Punk"

    Very interesting. I can see how they got to most of those.

    I doubt We Will Rock You will be Tier 0 on Guitar. The solo is pretty gnarly by L:RB's standards.

    I'm guessing that Fire will be the hardest song overall (depends on how much of the vocals are talkies.)

    Hardest for Guitar: Final Countdown.

    Hardest for Vocals: I Want You Back.

    Hardest for Drums: Aliens Exist/Fire

    Hardest for Bass: Iunno... maybe A-Punk or In Too Deep

    Those are my guesses

    I think you're right on the hardest songs (with Fire and A-Punk on drums and bass respectively)

    Queen is on top my tier 0, but just missed the cut for tier 1

    Also, just to nitpick; Walking on Sunshine will probably be Tier 4 or 5 on Vocals due to the improvisation at the end. It was pretty crazy on the Band Hero demo.

    Paris, France, about a month ago at some video game trade show :D (don't know if "trade show" is the right English word)
    the game was easy overall, but still very fun.

    Fire will be challenging on drums and Short & Sweet will be challenging on guitar probably.

    Wow, the tiers Zephiel posted make it clear the difficulty curve of L:RB is way different than RB2. Still, I wonder what that means for some of the DLC. For example, I'm guessing All Right Now is "family friendly" enough to be permitted into the Lego DLC catalog, but that's one of the hardest vocals out there. Hard to imagine it sharing the same tier as "So What."

    And it's hard to imagine They're Red Hot is not only in the same tier as All Right Now, but actually above it.

    Your point?
  • PlutarchPlutarch Road Warrior
    edited October 2009
    That's true, babbling can get you through They're Red Hot without much trouble. I suppose what I was getting at is that someone who gets introduced to RB through the Lego game might play "So What" and think "Wow, this is the hardest vocals the game has to offer?" Then, if they were to play All Right Now, it would pretty be a pretty rude awakening. It's not really a major issue, I was more or less just thinking out loud.

    I think Short and Sweet will be the hardest guitar since Steve Vai plays it

    and Let's Dance is way overtiered for guitar, from the preview it looks about one of the easiest and most boring songs to ever appear in the game.

    Stevie Ray Vaughan plays guitar on this track and has a real nice solo at the end

    So What should actually be at the bottom of the last tier, the rest of the devil tier vocals songs sound pretty tough (I Want You Back, Kung Fu Fighting).

    And So What doesn't sound like a cakewalk either, the sudden pitch changes in the verses (DADA DA DA DA DA DA dada da da da) should be quite a challenge.

    I think "Fire" would have been devil tiered in RB2 on drums, so I guarantee it will be so in LRB.
