Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Game only
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
the biggest selling points for me were: tracklisting, instrument quality, and downloadable content. I would normally just go and buy the new guitar hero game, but how can i do that when rock band 2 has songs like "Aqualung" by jethro tull and "Spirit in the Sky" by norman greenbaum along with hundreds of other downloadable songs. I've already bought the metallica, oasis, and classic rock track packs!

Instrument quality was the second selling point. Although it's cool looking to have the cymbals ala GH:WT drums, you get the more STABLE bass pedal with Rock Band 2 drums because of how it sits on a horizontal bar. The GH:WT pedal has reportedly slid on uncarpeted floors, or flipped sideways. The RB2 drums, are as SILENT as it can get and they are VERY sturdy.

The last deciding factor for me was the downloadable content. By years end, there will be about 500 downloadable songs on the playstation network. If you like Rush, oasis, megadeth, metallica, blondie, lynyrd skynyrd, etc. then Rock Band 2 is for you. Also, the software itself is just PLAIN FUN! to play through. You unlock songs by earning cash, fans, and hiring staff. The customizability of the characters is also tremendous, to the point where you can change eye colors! I hope this review helps, and don't pass up a fantastic game!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock Band 2 wins Round1 over GuitarHero:WT December 22, 2008
By Nate
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Game only
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
In case it was still in doubt, your RB1 instruments will all work with RB2 and they work well! Not to mention my GH:WT instruments all work with RB2 and work well!

I own both GH:WT and RB2 and RockBand 2 wins round 1 and here is why:

- amount of songs I can play is double on RB2: I usually play when friends come over and time and time again we choose RB2 simply b/c you can play and pick from soo many more songs with the inclusion of all my RB1 songs and downloadable content as well. GH:WT makes you re-insert any old GH disc if you want to play songs from previous discs.

- song search criteria in RB2 is way better: not only can you search for songs by title, artist or difficulty but now RB2 also allows you to search for songs by decade(70s, 80s, etc) and genre(alternative, classic rock, etc.) Very polished and easy to find any song from the 100s you might have. GH:WT only has one option and that is by song title.

- ability to save band members: since i usually play when friends are over the ability to "save" my beginner band members is crucial since a lot of times they are just learning how to play and want to have fun with it. GH:WT will automatically fail the whole band out if one band member fails...there is no option to change this. This is not very good when friend or family are over and want to just have fun playing with you.

- RB2 has drum solo sections and song ending solos which are fun: to achieve starpower on drums in RB2 you simply hit the last note of randomly inserted drum solo sections...which i enjoy!! You can go wild during the solo sections and do whatever you want as long as you hit the last note. GH:WT has no designated drum solo sections or song ending band solo sections.

5.0 out of 5 stars CAN 2 BE BETTER THAN THE FIRST ONE? October 27, 2008

YES! Rock Band Two has done it right. This game is easy to navigate through and that makes it so much fun to play. With the downloading of the "key" you now have all the songs from your first Rock Band game, all the songs that you bought and downloaded from the Rock Band Store pluse all the songs that comes with Rock Band Two makes this game the best Guitar Playing that you'll ever find.

You Will Be Happy Choosing Bock Band 2...

Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Game only
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
We bought this game and Rock Band (1) after buying GH: World Tour basically to have more/different songs. The songs are a lot of fun to play. I like the note layout, especially on the drums. It's a bit more intuitive than GH4. I didn't care as much for the gig structure of the game. There are single-song gigs, and those unlock multi-song gigs where you select the songs. But because you can only select unlocked (already played) songs for these sets, you sometimes have to play some songs twice in order to proceed and unlock new venues or songs. That's how a band has to do it in real life, so I can't argue with it, but I'd rather replay some of the songs at my own pace.

I play this game with the GH4 hardware, and on the PS3, it *does* work.

Note to thise who own both RB2 and Rock Band (1):
If you have the GH4 hardware on the PS3, you've no doubt noticed that the GH4 drums won't work with the original Rock Band. To resolve this, all you have to do is go to the playstation store and purchase the song export key for $5. Export the songs from Rock Band to your HD, and then they are all unlocked and playable (on the drums!) in Rock Band 2. This was a great help for those sets I mentioned earlier, because now instead of only being able to choose unlocked songs from RB2, I also had the RB1 library to choose from to compile a set. What fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars This just Rocks! December 15, 2008
By Bonstr
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Game only
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I LOVE this game! I am a 44 YO SAHM and I totally love this game. The music is fun and brings back good memories! I like that I can sing with the artists. I especially like that most of the songs are originals. Some aren't and they are real close, but some are WAY off. No worries there is maybe 2-3 of those. I don't care at all for the guitar. I am not a player, but my DH is and even he has trouble. We have had this game on a Wii Platform and the PS3 Platform and the guitar is no different on either. The drums are wonderful, I think they are better on the new version. We sold our Wii version and bought the PS3 RB2. Much better graphics this time around. When I wanna rock, this is where I get to do it and all of my family is happy with that. My 5 YO daughter loves it when mama says "I wanna rock". She will ask me if I am ready to! The good thing about this too is that she gets to learn some of my music that I grew up on. My DH is even learning some rock too! Check it out! You will be happy!!!
