  1. Despite the lack of online play and songs missing from the set list, Lego Rock Band's happy presentation, enjoyable soundtrack and rockin' gameplay will keep you entertained for quite some time.
  2. Lego Rock Band tries to cater to adults and kids, but in the end isn't too successful in that. While the game certainly looks fun for everyone thanks to the use of Lego, the choice of music certainly isn't for everyone and the lack in online options can be a deal breaker as well. It's still an enjoyable music game, but not very balanced.
  3. It’s easy to be skeptical of LEGO Rock Band as a quick cash grab, but Traveller’s Tales’ trademark LEGO silliness blended with a few interesting new mechanics from Harmonix elevates the game to a level fans of both series shouldn’t brush off.
  4. If looking for a family-friendly music game on Wii, players might be better off going with Band Hero, which feels infinitely more full-featured compared to LEGO Rock Band.

    Lego Rock Band is a good musical game, which perhaps will fall short for players who enjoyed Rock Band 2 or The Beatles: Rock Band.
  6. This charming rhythm game is especially good for first-timers, but it's a little light on content.
  7. Whether you're young or old, the LEGO characters and cute vibe will likely appeal to your sensibilities. All in all, LEGO Rock Band is a quality game that will get the whole family jamming together, but if you own one of the other systems, I would suggest getting a version other than Wii's.
  8. As a standalone game, Lego Rock Band is entertaining enough. It's fun for kids and should keep them entertained. When you look at the bigger picture and compare it to other versions of the game however, the complete lack of effort that's gone into making sure the Wii version offers similar value for money is nothing short of disgusting and lazy.
  9. 55
    It's a kind of pricey track pack of a bizarre setlist for a really fun rhythm game.
  10. Grab your sense of humor and your plastic axe and give Lego Rock Band a try.

    LEGO Rock Band can pretty much be summed up as Rock Band with LEGO aesthetics. [Holiday 2009, p.89]
  12. Nintendo Gamer
    There's a better party at Activision's house. [Christmas 2009, p.57]
  13. 65
    Lego Rock Band really does a great job of delivering top-quality presentation and a decent array of songs.
  14. This is the Rock Band game that all the family can easily enjoy. If you’ve been struggling finding a music game that you won’t have to monitor the song list, Lego Rock Band will put your mind at ease.
  15. GamePro
    It's fun while it lasts, but it certainly won't blaze any new trails as far as virtual rockstardom goes, and diehard fans of Rock Band should hope that the devs return to their hard rocking roots for the next genuine installment. [Feb 2010, p.89]

    While the game does have a lot of charm and has some pretty cool boss missions, Lego Rock Band is too easy and has too many poor designWhile the game does have a lot of charm and has some pretty cool boss missions, Lego Rock Band is too easy and has too many poor design choices that pulls the game down to average quality.
