The plastic instrument music/rhythm genre may have fallen out of favor in recent years due to over saturation, but that doesn't mean the genre is completely dead. All it takes is one solid new idea, or a repackaging of an old idea, to bring it right back into the mainstream again. Developer Harmonix is trying to do just that by combining the Rock Band brand with a style of controller-based gameplay (no plastic instruments here) more similar to its past PS2 titles Frequency and Amplitude. The result is something longtime fans of the rhythm genre should be very happy with.
