    I never really understood this game... you are tasked with playing 4 different tracks to maintain the band, but they are all the same gameplay, just tap buttons as they come down. Vocals especially confuse me, as there is a microphone on the DS and Band Hero DS managed to use it to success, yet Rock Band 3 (similar to Lego Rock Band DS) just uses buttons again.

This type of Rock Band is greatly different than peripheral Rock Band, and the gameplay of the DS version can get boring over time, but if you are looking for non-peripheral Rock Band, then this game will suit you fine.

    People who liked Rock Band in his recent appearances on the Nintendo DS will find in this third episode the same gameplay, a decent tracklist and some minor new features. The experience is not particularly innovative, but it is still enjoyable and fun.

    Shame about the small tracklist, as otherwise this is a good adaptation of the console game. [Christmas 2010, p.76]
