Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Game only
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Since I have both games, I'll highlight the differences. First off, I bought this primarily for my kids and I to play together (I have two daughters, 6 and 14 years old).

Since RB2 has no "strum only" mode, its difficulty levels are offset from those on GHWT (so Easy on RB2 is a bit harder than Beginner on GHWT, but easier than Easy on GHWT). Singing is the easiest of the parts to do (so my six year old usually does that), Bass guitar is (for most songs) next easiest, followed by lead guitar, and drumming is the hardest.

RB2 allows you to set up stand-ins for your computer-controlled players, so you can have the same band members when everyone isn't playing (for example, on very difficult songs my youngest will sit out, but I can still select "her" character as the singer, so she still feels like she's participating...also, we generally don't do the drums, but we can have the same character as our drummer, which gives us more of a band feel). There are several other subtle differences like this that give RB2 more of a roleplaying feel than GHWT.

Most importantly for those of us who are challenged in the area of manual dexterity, RB2 has a no-fail mode, which allows you to finish the song even if one of your members totally flubs it. If you're playing this as an occasional party game, or with young kids, that's very helpful.

In general, I'd say if you're more serious, looking primarily for a challenge and focused primarily on playing the guitar, GHWT is what you're looking for. If you're more into the atmosphere of creating a band, looking for a party game and something fun to do together in a family with members of different skill levels, RB2 is a better choice.

If you want to get both games (which I did), get the controllers for Guitar Hero, as they work for both games.

5.0 out of 5 stars RB2 on the Wii delivers! Best game on Wii yet. December 18, 2008
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Game only
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I managed to get my hands on Rock Band 2 a bit early, and spent the entirety of the evening playing. What a drastic improvement over Rock Band 1 on the Wii! This is identical to the Xbox 360/ PS3 versions of the game, and I was even more impressed than I anticipated. I was having a blast before I even had a chance to play a single note: The character creator tool was such a blast! You create a band and members, and then you hit the road. It was a really satisfying experience! This is really the first time that a Wii game has been truly competitive with other Next-Gen console games.

The World Tour mode is now available locally or online, and there are also challenges and battle-of-the-bands. There was a "Wii pre-release" battle available for the select few who managed to snag the game early, and I was able to compete head to head with other bands (there were only 3 other bands online since the game was not yet available @ most stores).
There are sure to be plenty of lengthy reviews, so I will just note some of my observations:

*Band Members - once you create your band-mates using the Character Creator, when you play a gig, there they are! I knew this feature was present, but I had no idea how exciting it would be the first time my character (who happens to look JUST LIKE ME!) appeared on stage! It was really satisfying! This feature was really well done. My first order of business was to create characters for my wife and all our friends. Whenever they come over and play from now on, they can use their characters. Also, these characters can be moved around, dropped etc. Also, whenever you select a character to play a gig with your band, they get a "cut", earning that character money which can be used to buy clothes, accessories, instruments, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock Band 2 fixes every disappointment from Rock Band 1! December 20, 2008
By Ryan
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Game only
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Although Rock Band 1 for the Wii was a fun game, it was a huge disappointment compared to the other consoles. Have no fear, as Harmonix has made up for it with Rock Band 2!

PROs
+ Full World Tour. No more playing a straight list of songs. Choose from different cities and different venues in each city.
+ Huge improvements on the graphics. Rock Band 1 was a little rough to watch, but Rock Band 2 on the Wii is full motion and rendered in real-time. You can actually see your players instead of a static background movie.
+ Online Play! The game will automatically sign you in to the Nintendo WiFi connection and allow you take part in Online QuickPlay, Online World Tour, and Battle of the Bands. And, unlike Guitar Hero World Tour, you can play online against 4 other Wiis (GH:WT only connects a max of 2 Wiis)
+ Character Creator. Now you can actually choose and customize who you play as, with unlockable clothes, instruments, and more.
+ Compatible with Guitar Hero World Tour instruments and the Guitar Hero 3 guitar (and, of course, Rock Band 1 instruments)
+ DLC! The online music store wasn't available at launch, but will be coming in early 2009. The word on the street is that there will be 30 songs available at launch from the back catalog, as well as the same free 20 songs that were available on other consoles. Also, songs can be saved on an SD card (the Wii will accept a 2GB max SD card; otherwise, you only have 512MB onboard Wii memory)

CONs
- Still need to deal with Friend Codes if you want to add to your friends list (but that's not the game's fault, it's a Nintendo requirement)
- No tattoo creator...
