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...

Rock Band 2


Keeps getting better with age, just like most music. The original idea behind Rock Band was one of the most ambitious in a long time. Create the ultimate music game...

Incredible track list ; Tons of new features and tweaks ; Online World Tour...finally ; Better guitar charts

Vocals are too easy ; Needs more cowbell

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 2


It's been one year since I finally got to "live" my dream of becoming a rock star. Now I sit here with a new set of drums in the corner, a shiny new guitar leaning up against the wall, and a, pretty much exactly the same, microphone on the floor. Oh...

Rock Band 2 is the best music game out right now.

Rock Band 2


This is how you make a sequel.

In the end, Harmonix took what looked like a bunch of small improvements and new features that taken individually might not have made for much more than an expansion to the original Rock Band and implemented them in such a way that together they make...

Rock Band 2


Rock Band 2 is obviously the followup to the highly popular, successful and innovative Rock Band released less than one year ago. There have been musical games in the past that allowed you to act (some might say "feel," but I don't think that term is...

Don't let the fact that we gave this a lower score than the original fool you; this game is a huge improvement upon itself. The Band World Tour online makes it a completely new game and a much more replayable game at that. The vocal follies are a bit...

Rock Band 2


When Harmonix released the original Rock Band less than a year ago it brought a wealth of new features to fans of rhythm games. The ability to sing, play guitar, bass or drums with up to four people at a time added new depth and a level of complexity...

More songs, easier to get multiple players on the same system into the game, easier to switch to another band spot, no fail mode helps avoid a murder when playing with noobs

Not much else new for a sequel, license fee of $5 to access songs from the first game, can't modify the base character models any more than you could in the first game

Rock Band 2 - Review


In just under a year, Rock Band successfully changed the face of music-based games for good and is already unleashing its second installment. The first was possibly the perfect party game, but had some definite room for improvement as a single-player...

The mode still works generally the same, and actually replaces the individual vocalist, guitarist, and drummer career modes of the first game. Single players looking for specific instrument challenges will find them in the aptly named 'challenge mode'...

Rock Band 2


People are often hesitant with sequels, especially when there aren't too many changes on paper. Dubbed Madden Syndrome, the process of merely updating a list (roster, songs, whatever) in a game is generally frowned upon-but for some reason the...

Rock Band 2 is the best music game since Rock Band 1. It doesn't drastically shake up the formula, but it does come one step closer to perfecting it.
