The Queen 10-pack for Rock Band is one of the best packs to download for the game. Period. Why is that? Well, Queen’s awesome, for one. But two, the pack contains no clunkers. None at all. All of the songs are great, and the two omissions should come in the future. At least, I think they should. We all know that We are the Champions is coming in Lego Rock Band, but the other glaring omission, Bohemian Rhapsody, is tougher to explain. My guess is that it would be an on-disc track for a theoretical Rock Band 3 that has vocal harmonies a la Beatles. I have no evidence for that, it just sounds logical.
The game is smart enough to put Fake Freddie Mercury in as the singer during quickplay, which is a nice touch.
Of course, that wasn’t the only DLC that came out this week – we had the remainder of the Abbey Road tracks for Beatles: Rock Band. Needless to say that I bought it so I could play the B-side medley as one track, and I wasn’t disappointed. In terms of value the Queen pack probably wins if you could only buy one for now. I suggest picking up both, they’re just two seminal parts of rock and roll and are a blast to play.
