Although it is another music game, i feel that this sequal to the franchise is a good addition. it allows the player to go on line and to play with other fans of the game. my experiance haowever with music style video games are still limited to the guitar hero series, but i thought that i would give rock band a shot and i was not disapointed. there is a wonderful array of different music genras in game as well as the songs that you can down load for a price that is. i am not saying that you should not give it a try because you may surprise yourself with how good you are. also i recommend this and any music associated game to the music lover. i give this game a rating of 9, because of its music quality, and the fun that the individual gamer (and non-gamer) has with this game.
