I love this game!!! The constant add-ons are great. The game is great just to kill time and to entertain friends/family.

At first I was overwhelmed with the medium/hard modes, however the very addicting game soon seemed like second nature when playing.

The song list caters to every music lover, there are several great classics as well as many newer titles available to play.

The guitar was my favorite instrument, the drums are fun but does not keep my interest. The microphone I didn't even attempt.

The online game play is also great if a friend can play along with you.

First let me start off by saying that if you don't have this game, you must get it. I love getting my friends and family together and forming a band. It is really realistic, how you form your band you start at clubs, but work your way up until you are at the biggest place you've ever seen, with your name in the background. Me and my brother started a band and named it High Voltage, and we got to this place, where there was a huge stadium with your name in the back with electricity striking it. That is what I call realism. There are, sadly, a few cons to this game that keep it from being perfect.

Pros: Great graphics and realism, character creation is awesome and so is the selection of things you can buy, playing with friends and family is the best, and even single-player is good.

Cons: On band world tour, once you get too many stars on one difficulty, you have to switch to a harder difficulty, I was on world tour with my brother, we were both on medium, but now we have to play on hard, which neither of us can do, thus not allowing us to finish world tour, and some times the instruments don't hit notes that you should've hit, and the guitar that the game comes with just sucks, I recommend buying another guitar.
This an awesome game and I recommend it to anybody who ever liked Guitar Hero.

This is a must buy if you have the money to buy the special edition bundle. Although the instruments are plastic, they are pretty well made, except for the bass pedal, and make this game extremely fun. Especially when friends come over, it's a blast. Before this game, I used to listen to a lot of hip hop and rap, but it opened my eyes to rock and metal which are also great genres of music. If you can afford DLC, (downloadable content), i strongly suggest it because it will affect your gameplay certainly a lot. So get read to rock and roll

P.S: I suggest getting Rockband 2 instead since it's almost coming out. That game is going to be great
