The sense of this game?

Point 1: Nobody is interested is seeing bricks making rock, everyone bought this game to use it as a track pack.
Point 2: Users found problems in the game as freezing and so on.
Point 3: EU and AUS Users got problems in exporting songs caused by a new way to obtain a key.

Wasn't better to release a Mega Pop track pack instead of this unuseful and badly developed game??

    I wanna play as Lego, I like the Lego games, I enjoy their humour, and I love character creation systems, so I want to see how this turns out. Lego Queen and Lego Spinal Tap look awesome too.

    Sure, a track pack would have worked, but it would have been a lot less interesting, and.. oh yeah.. other than the first two, the track packs haven't seen the light of day in the UK, so I wouldn't ever get any of the songs, unless they were DLC which would be a hell of a lot more expensive.

    Point 1: It's been made clear that a lot of people enjoy the aspect of Lego figures playing music. Just cause you're not interested, doesn't mean nobody is.
    Point 2: I haven't seen or heard of any such problems, nor have I experienced any such problems.
    Point 3: I haven't heard of any region specific complaints with the export.

    Very few people would buy a Mega Pop track pack, but thousands of people are very happy to buy Lego Rock Band. I'd venture to say that Lego is better.

    Lego Rock Band isn't a "mega pop" game. It has a similar mix of music to the main Rock Band games. Some pop rock, some rock, a side order of emo, country, glam rock and even some metal.

    It's a nice mix.

    Is this game even that good?
    and why can it only have family songs?
    That sucks!

    Um... Family friendly games only have family friendly songs, smart one.
    And yes it is good.
    If you like Jimi Hendrix, Queen, Elton John, Spinal Tap, and Europe it's good at least.

    The games fun, that’s the point.

    Now if you want something that doesn’t make sense, what’s the deal with that fake food they put in refrigerators on the show floor? As if I didn’t t know the freezer half was for frozen peas.

    Why would a Wookiee - an eight foot tall Wookiee - want to live on Endor with a bunch of two foot tall Ewoks? That does not make sense.

    Lego Rock Band is awesome!

    Band Hero was just a full price track pack, it was exactly the same as GH5 but with different songs

    Lego Rock Band has less songs, but it is more of a new game compared to RB2

    Because Legos are a toy aimed at children.

    Definte "most good games".
    Most of Nintendo's good games are family friendly.

    Because this game was marketed for the specific purpose of being family friendly.

    HMX wanted a game that parents could give to their kids that didn't have all the innapropriate songs playable.

    1: I actually love the style of this game. While I will probably continue mainly using RB2 after my run of LRB, I like having it. It can make a party a little sillier and it is a good alternative for kids. Though I can't see how a kid would have this and not RB2 because you can't get lego with instruments....
    2: Not problems yet, though it took a very long time for it to load my DLC the first time.
    3: Err... Sucks to be them?

    1 - I found the change of scenery kind of refreshing, and while a bit less customizable, some extra variety in character appearances nice too. There aren't massive pages of pages of writing on the DLC filters because everyone jumped the songs off LEGO into RB and tossed the cd in a dust bin either, I'm assuming.

    2 - It did freeze once on me, after hours of play. In the rock den. But otherwise has been completely stable.

    3 - Well, I have no idea, not being in EU or AUS,


    As to the conclusion statement, the songs in the game don't really fit into any especial genre pack. While they're more mainstream than some things in other packs, they cover a fair gamut of genres (plus, in the North American market, all those brit alternative bands in the game are oddly out of place in the game as far as mainstream goes).

    IMO, LEGO game = epic win. (Even LEGO: Indiana Jones, which should have been held off until it included all four movies.)

    I'm actually happy that it didn't include the fourth movie. Now I can pretend it never really happened.

    I'd tell you to grow up, but that's exactly why an Indiana Jones movie doesn't appeal to us now. :(

    Actually, yes. Heavy metal songs about murder and death or rock songs directly about sex CAN be bad when played in front of a child.

    Tenacious D, Rock Your Socks

    That is not something any parent wants to explain to their kid

    Unfortunately many people don't get that. For example when I saw the Dawn of the Dead remake in the theater some guy brought a kid that must have been five or six. Some people are just idiots.

    Actually, I'd have no problem explaining that to my kid

    "What does that mean dad?"
    "He wants someone to do a poo on him"
    "Eww, why?"
    "Some people are just weird like that, but it's not for us to judge. So, Ghostbusters next?"

    With the exception of the cockup with exports I'm more than happy with it. Good fun little game with loads of moments that make you smile. Exactly what I would expect and it duly delivers.

    I'm sure that a lot of people initially bought this game to treat it as a track pack. I'm one of them. But after playing it I can't get enough. MOAR LEGGGGOOOOO!!!

    Like what people have already said...Legos are aimed towards children, not adults. Would they do a Lego porn game just to make the adults happy? No. I look at Lego as an identifiable brand. Anytime you see something with Lego, you just KNOW it is safe for children...

    I thought about that too, but you can buy separate instruments...maybe that's what they were counting on? I dunno. Anyway, when the game was first announced I thought it would have been awesome if they made Lego-flavored instruments. The colors, the look with bricks...I know it would've been costly but damn I thought it would have been great. Maybe someone out there modded a drum and guitar somewhere?

    Judging from your posts I'm going to venture a guess and say that you have no children of your own and/or you are a child yourself...
