Customer Review

on October 21, 2008
After reading some of the negative press on RB2, especially the drums, my RB2 kit arrived and I had a non interrupted 2 hours of drumming joy.

Positives.

The Guitar has self calibration, which I have found to be good enough that I have not had to do any calibration manually (this was a right pain to get right in RB1). Somewhere (I could not see them from a cursory inspection) is both a sound and light sensor which auto calibrates vs a test beat and test flash.

I was most worried that the drums would not work (i'm the drummer in my family/friends) especially after all forum activity. They worked absolutely fine for me last night. Really like the softer/bouncier feel to the pads (i had the RB1 drums with silencer pads - these will not be necessary with the RB2 drums)

Menu system navigation is much more logical, as is the intergration of solo and multiplayer.

Drum trainer is excellent - 50+ patterns to practice, some with very complex changes, all at 40-200 bpm...

Song choices so far seem to have some really interesting drum rhythms and sequences with much more variation than RB1.

Overall really happy. Just hope I don't get some of the issues mentioned on the forums.
