RockBand 2 = RockBand 1. RB2 is just more of the same. Not that it is a bad thing. I am a little disappointed in the song-list. I was expecting them to really ramp things up and get some great stuff. Out of the 80 new songs there are probably 20 that I am really stoked to play. I like that it imports your RB DLC automatically, but I am ticked that they want me to pay 400 microsoft points to import the RB1 songs from the RB1 disc. I already paid for those songs when I bought RB1. That is bad business. They may have just slowed down my RB DLC purchases, I don't like greedy people or companies. Time will tell.
That is about the only negative things that I can say about RB2.
They finally got the single player Band Tour fixed. You can play the tour offline now. On any of the instruments. You can swap out and play a different role/instrument at anytime(you have to complete the set you are playing first though) in the tour without having to have separate tours for each instrument. Which easily makes this game worth the price. They also fixed the moronic problem of having to have different characters for each instrument. Overall they fixed all the menu problems that RB1 had. All of the RB1 instruments work with RB2. As well as working with the upcoming GH:WorldTour. And in case you were wondering, the Wired and Wireless GH guitars work in RB1 and RB2. But the RB1 guitar doesn't work in GH. Great Game. Buy it.

Picking up where they left off they create another near perfect game. Adding to the great sounds selection from all genres and making it better. I mean how can you go wrong with a game that lets you play Journey. I mean come on. And the little extra tide bits here and there just make it that much better. Music video photo shoots and the online challenges are awesome not to mention the playing with other people over live
