Rock Band 2

 

Rock Band 2. It rocks...

Better online modes and a stronger single-player game make Rock Band 2 a marked improvement on the already fantastic original. It's a matter of taste whether it's a better game than GHWT, but for my money it offers a richer and more varied band...

Rock Band 2 review

 

Rock Band was never just a game - it was a bona fide phenomenon. Rock Band changed the way we looked at, listened to, and played music in a video game environment and now that revolutionary experience is back and better than ever with Harmonix's highly...

It's more Rock Band and that is not a bad thing at all. With a new setlist of songs and more features, Rock Band 2's a no-brainer for anyone who loved the first Rock Band.

Rock Band 3

 

My original idea was to have kept a Rock Band 3 diary since the game's launch, charting my daily exploits with this most anticipated of rhythm-action titles. Although it would have been an exceptionally tedious read, it would have also reflected the...

Even taking Pro mode out of the equation, Rock Band 3 is still an incredible package of almost limitless depth. From playing online one night to jamming with a room full of friends another, from mastering that tricky guitar solo to taking your first...

Rock Band 2 PS3, Xbox 360 Review

 

Revolution does not come cheap. $200 million and 20 months work saw Harmonix and Electronic Arts release Rock Band, the game EA will hope does for downloadable content what the iPod did for MP3 players. Historically, music games such as Guitar Hero...

This is a worthy sequel with a look and feel that are more polished than last year’s effort. There’s a lot more songs to add to your collection, solid Drum Trainer and new Battle of the Bands. Rock Band 2 is well worth your time and money, just don’t...

Rock Band 2

 

Rock Band 2 is brilliant, just like Guitar Hero: World Tour is. We can't pick between them.

World Tour is online ; Avatars can swap instruments ; Massive track list

No music-making mode

Guitar Hero: World Tour, as it stands in the UK, has better instruments (the new Rock Band 2 instruments aren't out here yet, the World Tour drum kit has cymbals), and it's also got a music editing and recording mode called Music Studio, which Neon...

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....

Rock Band 2

 

It's a rock revolution.

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

 

If Guitar Hero made you feel like a rock star wait until you play the latest musical love fest from Harmonix: Rock Band. From the legendary Ramones and Rolling Stones...

Tons of Downloadable Content ; Great Multiplayer

Repetition on Band World Tour ; Hardware Issues

The ultimate music game

Rock Band 3

 

Ever since their inception, developer Harmonix has strived to bring music to the masses, especially those who don't really play music. In fact, as big of a hit as the Guitar Hero and Rock Band franchises have become, most of the detractors are actual...
