Rock Band 2 - Game Only
Much better than the original.
The original Rock Band was great. Rock Band 2 for the Wii finally lets me create my own character. I like how the Band World Tour was expanded. I even get a Music Store for DLC. I highly recommend this game to anyone who loves rock music. Great for parties too. Thanks Harmonix.
the BEST game EVER!!! a Must Own
I'm going to put up my review i have on ultimate-guitar.com. Game Experience: My experience with this game is amazing. It is an awesome game. I have known about Guitar Hero When it first came out and I loved it. Through the years Guitar Hero was loosing it's popularity. Rock Band came out and stole the spotlight. Haha. Rock Band is an amazing game and I would recommend it to any one who loves music and/or games. // 10
Extras: Rock Band has four instruments. Guitar, singing, bass, and drums. If you look at a lot of reviews on Rock Band they say " I broke my foot pedal for the drums playing expert." It has so many bands ranging from Red hot chili peppers to Judas Priest. It has 84 songs and more from the downloadable content. // 10
Impression: I love that it has so many bands and songs. What I hate about it is that finding a person online can take FOREVER. I love the drums more than any instrument on the game. I have almost every type of drum in the game. I got to the 54th song on the endless set list, which is a set list that makes you play every song on the disc (not downloadable content.) the guitar is really fun because of the solos on the game. The bass is fun because of the score multiplier on it. Singing is fun because you feel open, I guess is what you would call it. I recommend this game to anybody who loves music like I do.thank you for reading my review. // 10
A Must Own....
You absoulutly MUST own this game. The songs on this game are awsome, and fit the rock band tune perfectly. Now, you can also download your own song thanks to Nintendo Wi-Fi. There really isn't anything else to it. Get the game. I triple dog dare U!!!!!
Not worth it
I hate to say it, but I don't think these games are worth it for Wii. I bought Rock Band for it last year and now that my roommate has a PS3, I can finally see what I was missing the whole time. However, with that aside I think the Wii version would be good for either someone that's younger and doesn't know a lot of the music. I've been a musician for over 18 years and I couldn't be more impressed with these games, not only with their technology for translation from a master track to essentially a 1 string, 5 fret guitar, but also how they're introducing the younger people of today to some of the best bands around. I doubt any of the kids under the age of 14 or 15 have even heard of Dream Theater or Alanis Morrisette until this game. Hope someone found this useful, it's a great game and worthy of any kid to adult.
Best Game for Rocking
This game really deserves props, as of song variety, character customization, difficulty and so forth , THIS GAME IS AWESOME!!!!!!! I don't even say awesome but i have to say it to describe this game. Not even Guitar Hero 1,2,3,4,or 5 can touch this game. So let me tell you about now. The song's are spaced out from warm up, moderate, challenging, nightmare, and impossible. This gives all new comers a good look see of what type of song's their playing so they won't look bad in front of their friends. Many guitar games create characters for you that you'll have to just customize to your liking but tis game lets you not noly create your character but it let's you customize them with diffrent varieties of clothing like rock,goth,punk, and so on. This game excel in every possible real rock life feature except song creating. Thats the only flaw but get real ( WHat Know It All wants to do that). The more parts you buy to this game the better and I mean better! If you get the drums, you'll have fun to certain extinct but, if you buy the guiar, and michrophone to go with it then you'll have more fun than you attended on having. And the Wii has really steped up their graphic game to which is a step up for alot of Wii fans like myself. So if you are interested in Guitar Hero and want a better outlet than get Rock Band 2 Cuz this game excels in every rocking expectation! Buy IT!!!!!!!
Such an improvment
This game is so much better than its prequel. The first one didn't have any down loadable content, character customization, or multi-player, but rock band 2 has that plus a leader board and even a special web code to link your game to rockband website which enables all of your characters to "magically" be on the site for FREE photos and ETC. Over all the game would be the same compared to Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, but the graphics are a little downscaled but other wise it would be the same. I read reviews STRICTLY before purchasing, and they were all correct. I have only found one problem with this game.... Whenever I click the music shop (the place where you download songs) it will say " No Rock Band Music Store data found. I have no idea what this means but other wise NO BUGS. This was a GREAT BUY I highly recommend it to everyone.
Rock Band 2 is the bomb!
This is a GREAT game to get if you have liked Rock Band 1. This game is so much fun with friends and family. You can never run out of songs to play because you can download songs off the internet. The graphics are not so good, but the drums are so much FUN! The controls are hard at first, but they get easier after you get the hang of it. The is a great game to play with friends if you have a complete band kit. If you don't have the band kit, do not buy the game. In this game you can battle people off the internet and see how good your skills are. Any controller of the Rock Band set does not work on Guitar Hero World Tour (except the mic). That is a pretty big disappointment. If I were a pro gamer, I would rate this game 10+. If you do see this game on the shelf, think pretty hard about buying it. Trust me, it is not an rip off.
Nintendega's Review for Rock Band 2 (Wii)
This game is a perfect example for what a music simulation game should be. And thats coming from a actual Guitarist. This game is very fun and addictive. I don't play in groups er anything like most people do and this game is still fun so if your a loner-type-gamer like me don't sweat its still pretty awesome. The setlist is awesome and pretty vast. Over 80 songs to play!! Though you start out with like 15 songs to choose from, I know, bummer. You will unlock the rest as you progress in Career mode. Career mode is very cool and fun. It will take you a long while to beat, though. I logged in a whoping 54 and half hours until I finally beat it for the first time. But it will keep you occupied for that long amount of time, and maybe even longer, the replay value is pretty high on this game. The online mode is very fun if your a loner gamer, or even if you aren't and one of your "band members" couldn't make it. The free custimization is vast and enless in possiblities. Give your player tatoos, crazy haircuts, cool outfits, instruments that even you could never think of, and more. I love this game and could put money down that you will too. Pick it up.
Rock Band 2 Owns!
Best music game ever, it has a lot of cool songs to play with each instrument and its very cool to play multiplayer online with your friends. Another good thing is the download content is just awesome, every week they add more and more songs to play and all you need is a Nintendo SD Card to save the songs and Wii points to buy them, do not hesitate to buy this game, is definitely a must buy! Rock Band 2 has been one of my favorite since its released and haven't stop playing, is just to good to stop now and soon they're gonna release Rock Band: The Beatles another legend to add to your list. Well people if you are not sure whether to buy this game or not, I say what are you waiting for, RB2 has everything you need and if you like music this is a must have, simple as that, so go now and buy it ASAP!
Great Music Game
This is my favorite music game so far. The selection of music is great. They have everyone from AC/DC to Bon Jovi to Beastie Boys and much more great rock artist. The gameplay is great and is a challenge at first but then you get the hang of it. I like the drums better but many people think it is the most challengeing.
