Excerpt: Taking its inspiration from the earlier Singstar and Guitar Hero, Rock Band was one of the most successful playalong games of the past couple of years. Where previous games let you do vocals and guitar respectively, Rock Band lets you do both and you can have a go on the drums too. It's a ludicrously expensive game if you want to get the most out of it.
Pros: Play and sing along to a band that truly defined rock music .
Cons: An expensive add - on for an already expensive game . Wii version lacks features .

8 January 2009
Summary: Having already owned the Wii Rock Band equipment and software from the previous release, check out my review for that for more information, I was very excited to hear they were releasing a song pack, please note this game needs the original rock band equipment to play.

Pros: Some good songs and the rock band equipment is fantastic
Cons: Not good value for money with so few songs on disk
