A Wonderful Improvment over the Series... Especially for the Wii

Summary: The original Rock Band for Wii came as somewhat of a disappointment for music game lovers. You could rock out with friends yes, but the lack of the other fun options that set Rock Band apart from Guitar Hero (custom character creation being the most obvious deletion) brought down the game. Rock Band 2 is exactly the same on Wii as it is on any other system, custom character creation and all included.
Summary: I don't like Rock Band 2 as much as Rock Band 1. I've been playing the first Rock Band since it came out and finally got so sick of the same songs, went out and got Rock Band 2. It is really nice to have a change of pace and some fresh music to play, but I am quite on the fence about RB2. Pros: 1) Customizable Characters - I was suprised to find how much I like this feature.
Summary: Rock Band 2 is great for Wii. While the graphics are not as good as they are for the HD versions, the game still has all of the other features. Downloadable content is available and can be played from an SD card. I used Guitar Hero controllers (100% compatible) so I can't tell you how the RB controllers are. My only complaint is that there are limited options when it comes to creating/editing band members and logos.
Summary: After Rock Band 1, Track Pack Volumes 1 & 2 the Wii finally has a complete Rock Band game. Not that the first three disks weren't fun, but there was no personalization, the tour mode was little more then playing the songlist in order, and there was no downloadable content. It still isn't caught up with the Xbox or PS3 versions graphically but when you're focused on playing a song, the graphics are just to make the background interesting.
Summary: I'm a big fan of . My friends, family, and I really enjoy rockin' out to the tunes there. So far I have only played on the guitar (we don't have the mic or drums), but it's a blast! That game came with a new World Tour (or "Guitar Hero 4") Fender guitar. I also have the , which came with the "Guitar Hero 3" Les Paul-style guitar. I'm totally satisfied playing GH:WT and GH:A, but my Girlfriend wanted more music (specifically Duran Duran), so we bought Rock Band 2.
