Rock Band 2

 

If you can't tell, this is very much a sequal to the original "Rock Band" but with a few more features. It's a continuation from the origional game that introduced guitars, microphones, and the all new drumset to all work together to create the...

I can't find anything bad to say about the sound in "Rock Band 2". You will be addicted to playing music from your favorite bands, and even your favorite songs. If you can't hear it very well, turn the TV up, and that'll drown out some clicking from...

Deja vu is really odd. You feel like you have seen or done something before, but then you slowly realise that you actually haven't. Rock Band 2 instills this same feeling. At first glance, it looks more like a rather expensive add-on instead of a full...

Last November the gaming industry was rocked to its core when Rock Band made its way onto retail shelves across the nation. Rock Band 2 embodies the same concept as its predecessor with all-new features, 84 brand new original master tracks, and new...

After playing last year's mega-hit Rock Band, the entire CVGames staff fell in love with the addictive gameplay. In fact, we loved it so much, Rock Band was honored as the Best Game of 2007 in our yearly Bernie Gaming Awards. We were able to look...

With a huge library of songs, awesome instruments, easy to use multiplayer options, and an incredible experience online or offline, Rock Band 2 completely overshadows the first game. If you were a fan of the first or are new to music games, this title...

Rock Band 2 review for the XBOX360

 

Wild, sweet, solid, and Hell Yeah!

Online World Tour; Better peripherals; Better interfaces; Better song list

Detached vocalist; No detailed stats

Rock Band 2 is the definitive version of its revolutionary progenitor- better instruments, better online modes, and a wickedly better song list - taking its place as one of the greatest multiplayer games of our generation. Where Rock Band 2 doesn't...

Feels like the first time... only better!

I must also mention that some of the note charts from Rock Band 1 songs have been altered and in some cases increased in difficulty. While the game is no where as stupid hard as the Guitar Hero series, this to me, makes the game actually more fun and...

Harmonix and MTV Games are taking the groundbreaking music platform that forever changed the face of music video games to the next level with the release of Rock Band 2. Rock Band 2 builds upon its foundation as the first music game to introduce...

Rock Band 2 (EA Games)

 

Customisation, Challenges, it rocks

Might annoy your neighbours when you crank the volume up to 11

It's more Rock Band and that is not a bad thing at all. With a new setlist of songs and more features, it's a no-brainer for anyone who loved the first Rock Band.

Rock Band 2 Review (Xbox 360)

 

The release of Rock Band 2 in New Zealand seemed like an after thought.  ”After” is the crucial word there, incidentally; almost a year after, in fact.  Rock Band 2 was released in North America in September 2008.  We didn't see it until December 2009....

So, 2008’s hottest rhythm game is pretty damn decent.  But there's not really that much to say… not this late in the game.

Rock 'n' roll. Its cool, y'know? Very cool. Little surprise then that to show-off Rock Band 2, we didn't find ourselves journeying into the depths of a corporate EA booth, but rather entering the chilled out mecca that was MTV's area at this year's E3...

Those who enjoy RB2's music, but are too tired or lazy to rock-out themselves, will appreciate the game's Jukebox mode - and the artwork that accompanies this mode is also looking rather impressive. There's lashings of customisation options, of course,...
