  Excellent Party Game

| | See all deanlowdon's reviews (468)

Taking the formula of Guitar Hero and adding the option for both vocals and drums to be played alongside the guitar Rock Band 2 makes no real effort to cater for the single player but does make for a great party game.

  Miles better than Guitar Hero World Tour

| | See all Jinamgo's reviews (1)

Ok, in guitar hero world tour you can customise your characters alot, paint their guitar, blabla and they have a song maker thats bairly usable, if your buying rockband your buying a music game not a paint guitar game. Rockband is a absolutly fantastic buy, for everyone, of any difficulty, we have bought some songs online, fairly cheep and all charted fantasticly, i advise the peace sells album by megadeth for metal heads, but theirs somthing here for everyone.rockband, all the way. Also rockbands presentation is much cleaner, sharper and pleasing. Last time i heard rockband and rockband 2 have somthing like 1000 songs on disk and on download, world tour have about 400. Iv also heard charting for gh metallica and gratest hits is poor and inacurate. for me this is your best buy.

  What the first Rock Band should have been.

The game has brilliant graphics, the customisation is incredible, there are so many different clothing items and intruments for the characters. On the first Rock Band there were only a few songs that I really liked. On Rock Band 2 there are so many songs that I really enjoy such as 'Chop Suey', 'Down With The Sickness', 'One Step Closer' and 'Give It Away'. These are just a few of the brilliant songs available on the disc. Also, the DLC is amazing, the songs are good value, at 160 microsoft points I think and there are so many songs from so many different artists.

  The ultimate band experience

Like Fifa v PES and Halo v Gears, Rock Band v Guitar Hero is set to become one of gaming's big rivalries, and for now, Rock Band has the edge. In my opinion, the superior play list and swathes of DLC make this a must buy, and the instruments are very well made. Guitar Heroes guitar is better but it's drums are inferior and so is it's playlist. Rock Band also trumps it for value. This is a great game to play with friends, and challenging on your own. Guitar Hero seems to have missed the point, while they flood the market with unecessary games (Greatest Hits, Aerosmith) Rock Band just sticks to what people want, a great music game, no gimmicks. The original master, Harmonix, is still the master.

  Rock Band vs Guitar hero

| | See all rb123456789's reviews (12)

For me i have always preferred Guitar hero but Rock Band 2 has taken it for me. The difficulties perfect not to hard not to easy, good song choices (all the classics) andmultiplayer mode strong aswell. Get Rock Band not Guitar hero

  Brilliant!

I seem to play on this game every time I go on the xbox and I love it! Online it's better than Rock Band because of the better graphics and it's great to play with friends.
I would easily recommend this to anyone!

  Awesome! Just as good as GHWT

Just as good if not better. I've played guitar hero worl tour and whilst that's good i totally prefer rock band 2, for the longer and often better list of songs, the gameplay seems more refined. Great customising options, plenty of playability on your own and obviously a riot of laughs with your friends
