  • Summary: On the surface it seems like not too terribly much has changed from Rock Band 1 to Rock Band 2 other than the track listing, but when you dig a little deeper you find a sequel that is far and away better than the original. It offers a lengthy and deep single-player experience. It is more challenging for skilled players. It has a no fail mode so multiplayer sessions aren’t interrupted no matter how terrible your family and friends are at the game.

  • Conclusion: Without a doubt, Rock Band 2 is setting a gold standard for music games to date. The few minor nuisances are just that, small reminders that nobody and nothing is perfect, and that someday a patch will come out to fix these errors. The experience of Rock Band 2, however, cannot be denied, and is easily a contender for Game of the Year.
