While it lacks some of the features of prior versions - most notably online mode - Rock Band 4 is a solid release that establishes the franchise as a platform that will be continually supported and updated in the future. It's a great model that brings the classic Rock Band gameplay to current-generation consoles, while being compatible with legacy instruments and songs.
The band experience is intact and proves it’s not quite time for the music genre to recede into gaming history. And few would argue that bringing Rock Band’s enormous catalog to modern consoles isn’t a good idea. But as gargantuan a task as bringing 1,700-plus songs into 2015 might be, the rest feels like the bare minimum: the Rock Band experience, except on newer hardware.
It feels more like a minimum viable product than the fourth game in a long-running and popular game franchise. If you're looking for a way to play Rock Band on new consoles, this allows that. And not much else. Stack on the storefront issues that make old DLC hard to import, the lackluster sound of the freestyle guitar solos, and a minimal set of options, and the whole package gets a little hard to recommend to anyone other than diehard fans who just want a way to play the game on current machines.
