    There are few better rhythm-action games on the handheld. [Issue#181, p.81]
  2. Rock Band Unplugged proves that music games can work surprisingly well on handheld consoles, too. The Amplitude-like gameplay works great and the song selection is good. A game worthy of the Rock Band name.

    But as a rhythm game, Unplugged is a wonderful portable title. [July 2009, p.84]

    Buy this game if you want a challenging title that will eat up long journeys or quiet evenings in darkened room; it’s a great take on the franchise and it’s made for us, for the fans.

I expected it to be bad because it's a branch-off and there's no instruments. I was so surprised and relieved to see that this game could and should be in the PSP hall of fame. It has the same personality and charm as the console versions. My hats off to EA for making a franchise add-on that doesn't suck. Full Review »
