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.

I'm a really big fan of music games like Rock Band. I get almost every one that comes out. I rented this and the first thing I looked for was the career section to get started. I looked for probably 20 minutes trying to figure out where to start the first gig, but low and behold the title was misleading, and the actual career is in quickplay. Waste of time there.. but anyway! The song list has some awesome songs on it that I could play for days! And then it has some on it that makes me want to vomit. A handful of them are horrendous songs that nobody wants to play let alone listen to it for 4 minutes. Why do they put songs from bands on here that no one has heard of? YOU WILL NOT get the platinum for this game unless you borrow pro instruments from a friend , or if by chance you happen to have them already.. which I don't know why you would if you are renting this.. 30% of the trophies are pro instrument related. The Endless Setlist one is also a pain to get surprisingly. You can pause it now but there are things you can do to glitch it and you not get the trophy. I played 5 hours and realized I screwed it up after reading a FAQ. Then I tried again for another hour and accidentally did it again. It was fun for awhile but it seemed like a chore getting through the set. Decent game, not great.
