Summary: This game is pretty much awesome. My only complaint is that I can't play it with my "Fender Pro" guitar. But it does work with my Mad Catz MIDI-Pro drum adapter, so that's not so bad. Also, FWIW, these songs are HARD. Definitely a lot of fun to play.
Summary: Does a great job of organizing your career into 3 performances that span the career of the band. playability is everything you'd expect from a "Rockband" game. Some pretty cool "rewards" of live footage from years past. My only complaint would be that they didn't include more songs. For a band that has been making music for around 20 years there is a good mix from the collection but there is room for a follow up.
Summary: If you like Green Day, then this is a much have. This has all of your Green Day favorites and is easy to get started on. It also has several challenging songs that will keep you busy for many gaming sessions. The only downside is the songlist is a little short at 47 songs. But otherwise, great fun!
Enjoyable addition to Rock Band for Green Day fans

Summary: I love Green Day, and being able to play their songs in Rock Band is awesome. Definitely like the ability to import this game into the main RB3 game, as some of these add on packs do not have that ability.
Summary: If you like Rock Band/Guitar Hero than this is your game if you're a Green Day fan. If not then just move on. I did get a little bored though after a few hours of just Green Day. Fun game though and as I love the music I loved the game.
Summary: Probably the best advance in this version of Rock Band is the fact that you can carry your "overdrive" power from one song to the next. The biggest letdown, from this Green Day fan, is the play list contains primarily tunes from the big three albums in their canon. It might have been nice to see a few "oldies" in there that weren't on "Dookie.
Summary: There is no question about the needs for rock artists to expand their horizons into video games. That has definitely shown with Rock Band & Guitar Hero as acts like Metallica, Aerosmith, and the legendary Beatles have recently showcased their music and their talents to their music in these challenging games. Green Day is now making that attempt to bring their music from their near 20 year career to the Rock Band stage.
Summary: Green Day: Rock Band (for the Wii) is a great supplement to the vastly growing catalog of rhythm games. Harmonix seemed to be toiling in boredom with their early track-packs and their first endeavor to create a "band only" game fell flat with 2008's Rock Band: AC/DC Track Pack. But then they hit it out of the park with last year's hot holiday wish list item, The Beatles: Rock Band.
