Rock Band 2 Review

 

Now with more rock.

Now after you go through the basics and new modes, really there's only one thing to take judgment on, the set list, and as I already said, it'll be hard to beat this one. Keep in mind this is my own personal opinion and preference, but still, it has...

Cthulhupalooza brings a Rock Band contest, the Call of Cthulhu movie, and Darkest of the Hillside Thickets show together to help raise money for Child's Play Charity!

Sadly, the Rock Band contest was a contest of skill, not just awesomeness, and the judges stuck to the rules - denying The Skeletor Experience Featuring Meatbags their rightful place among the final four. Curse you He-Man!

Rock Band returns to the PS3 for a most excellent encore.

Rock Band 2

 

Harmonix's sequel expands, matures, and grows... kind of like your music folder.

Online and solo support for World Tour; tons of new music; fun Battle of the Bands mode

A phenomenal game, but ultimately, it's still more of a monolithic expansion pack than a sequel

Rock Band 2 Review

 

Rock Band revolutionized the music game genre, allowing users to play with not only a guitar peripheral, but a drum set and microphone as well. Many dubbed it the perfect music game. A year has passed, and Harmonix has crafted a sequel to the original...

The massive, meticulously crafted setlist ; The Battle of the Bands mode ; The refined guitar and drum peripherals

Laggy drum fills and pitch recognition on some setups

Rock Band 2 isn't a "true" sequel, but it's the best encore we've ever experienced. Warn your neighbors -- this may be their last proper night of sleep for months.

Rock Band 2

 

Released late last year for the Xbox 360, and more recently for PS3, PS2 and Wii following the end of the exclusivity period, Rock Band 2 builds on the first fruits of the EA and Harmonix partnership to provide another rocking experience, the largest...

Massive and hugely expandable track-listing ; Solo players get a proper tour mode ; One of, if not the finest local multiplayer experiences around ; Can use instruments from other music games ; Downloaded content is integrated into tour mode

Many tracks repeated from Guitar Hero: World Tour ; You'll need to set aside the best part of a day for the Endless Setlist ; Unlikely to change the opinions of non-fans ; Doesn't have a custom song mode like GH

While Rock Band 2 seems the better overall package at this time than GHWT, it does appear as though both developers are busily saturating the market with spin-offs and expansions right now, which could prove to be detrimental in the long term....

Is it all worth fighting for?

 

I rarely play games more than once, let alone start them over again as soon as I finish them. Yet that's exactly what I did the first time I played Resident Evil 4 on Gamecube...and all over again when it was ported to the Wii. It's easily one of my ...

A competent sequel in the mold of Resident Evil 4

Has "one step forward, two steps backward" feel and Lesser Sequel Syndrome

Consumer review by:

If you liked the old games...this ain't them.

 

Well first off let me state I've played the old games and Resident Evil 5 is is very different. I like it a whole lot. However if your a huge fan of the earlier games you may not like it so much due to many changes and because as some people have...

Game Play & new co-op mode

Not like the old games

You've Lost That Horrific Feeling

 

I'll be honest, I have enjoyed Resident Evil 5 like few games I've played, but it's missing many elements that drew me to the Resident Evil franchise. I've been here since the beginning playing game #1 since it first came out and ...

fun gamepleay, impressive graphics, good music

loss of the zombie horror feel, megalomania, collector's ed. offerings not as good as Japan's

Consumer review by:

Bribery...blackmail...signed postnuptials...nothing's worked! Horror just doesn't want to get back together with Resident Evil. *sobs*

 

Much the same as zombies, the survival-horror franchise is dead. It's been removed. It's been replaced. And in the past, it's been repeated to the point that Capcom, one of its founding fathers, has stuck a shotgun to its temple and pulled the trigger....

There's solid elements all around: from the cooperative survival gameplay to its high-definition visual delight

While a great game, Resident Evil 5 is really nothing apart from its predecessor
