You're probably well-aware of how the game works: you put together a band and go on tour, playing various venues, nifty songs, lots of different set lists and buying all the virtual crap you can get your hands on! It's very similar to what I experienced with Lego Rock Band, which is no surprise.
The graphics in the game are good, but really they take second place to the music. I must say that I do rather like the set list here. I like it more than GH3 or GH5, and it's much better than Lego Rock Band (though for ten bucks you can import the set list from LRB to this game). You also get a voucher to download 20 bonus tracks. I wouldn't bother with them.
The DLC here is quite good. Anything I've downloaded for LRB plays with Rock Band 2, which is good. I haven't tried the online play (I usually don't like 360 online experiences), so I cannot comment on that. The solo game play is wonderfully fun, though a bit easier overall than the GH games. It plays pretty much the same (notes scroll down, you hit them). I played with a friend of mine and unlike GH5 you can't both play the same instrument. It's a minor complaint, though.
One bit of advice to would-be rockers looking to play this game: don't create a character to play that you find attractive. I made this mistake. I cannot count the number of notes I have missed due to being distracted. It was a terribly unwise move on my part.
Overall I had a good time with this game! It's worthy of inclusion in the collection of anyone who enjoys music games like this.
If you have Rock Band 4, no, you will not be able to import these songs. Period. There is -nothing- you can do to get these songs on RB4 (or even RB3.) The export codes on the back of the manual are to "verify" you own RB2. The actual code to download the songs does not exist, and if you never did it before wayyyy back in the day, you can't. Don't waste your money on this game trying to get songs for RB4.
