Excerpt: It feels almost pointless to review music video games any more. Each of them is virtually identical except for the set list and the same is true with Green Day: Rock Band. If you are a fan of Rock Band games or of Green Day, this is a great game for you to own. If you are not a fan of either, then Green Day: Rock Band is not going to change your mind one bit.
Fun but stagnant music game has songs with iffy lyrics.

Summary: Parents need to know that Green Day: Rock Band garnered a "Teen" rating by the ESRB because of some lyrical references to drugs and sex, some unlockable videos where a bandmenber makes a joke about cocaine, and "mild blood" seen in a photo you can unlock that shows the band reenacting a bloody crime scene. The game does encourages players to express their passion for music and cooperate with friends.
Do you like Green Day? Do you like Rock Band? OK good, we're done here.

Conclusion: I'm going to reiterate what I said at the beginning. If you like Green Day and Rock Band, go get this. If you're getting bored of playing fake instruments or you're just not a fan of the group, then don't expect to be won over. It's not as polished or as lovingly handcrafted at the Beatles: Rock Band, but a lot of the songs are way more fun to play. Now, if only there were more of them.
Excerpt: For the purposes of this review let's assume that you are indeed a fan of Green Day, because if you cringe every time you hear Boulevard Of Broken Dreams, this clearly isn't the game for you and we're all wasting our time here.
