The most obvious game to compare RB2 to is Guitar Hero World Tour. Of the two I'd have to say GHWT is better,but RB2 is still worth a rent at the least.First off, not much has changed from RB1. There is barely any new content other than the new setlist but thats a given. The single player is now just a tour like you could do in RB1 but you can play it by yourself now.This means that you will be playing alot of the same songs over and over again which is pretty annoying sometimes. There are alot of great songs on the game, but most of the beginner easier songs are mostly trash. Also, there are some improvments to the online modes. Band Quickplay is now more user friendly and people take turns choosing songs so its not just one person choosing all the songs he/she wants. You can also use a mic this time when you play so you can talk to people.The score duel is still messed up. The fret board moves so slow, but thank GOD that they added some "mods" to the game, the best of which is Breakneck speed which increases the speed at which the fretboard moves at you. Thats the only way I cpuld see playing Score duel, especailly If you play on only expert like me. One other good feature is the Drum Options in trainer. There is a freestyle mode, Fill Trainer and Beat Trainer to help you hone your skills on drums. The freedtyle mode lets you change the sounds of the drums, but compared to GHWT's music creator, this little drum gizmo doesnt pale in comparison. So basically RB2 is just a small expasion to RB1. A few new guitars, a new clothing section and other accessories, but still its low on content and still not as good as GH in my opinion.
