My whole family loves this game. From my 7 year old daughter to my 35 year old husband we all enjoy this game. We play this game more then any of our other games, and every one has a blast! The rock video type graphics are fun, customizing your own band and posting them on line is also great. Most of the songs are great and if you do not like the ones that came with the game just go on line and purchase some tracks you like better! If I could rate a game above a 10 I would.

Rockband is ok, but it's not near as good as Guitar Hero. The controller is hard to get used to when your used to the Guitar Hero controller. Your timing also has to be right on the dot, which makes the solos a pain sometimes. It also cool that you can download songs which takes the game from a 7 to an 8 in my book. All in all its a great game, but not near as good as its predecessor.

Sure, it started with Guitar Hero and continued with that games various incarnations. But Rock Bands introduction of a whole band set truly carries music games forward in strides.

The game really does deliver, with an excellent song choice, wonderful availability of downloadable content, and replay-ability which is spurred on by the ability to practice and play four different instruments, very little goes wrong here.

The whole packages hardware set of drums, microphone, etc, is relatively durable with only the guitar lacking in that arena. The only really negative to Rock Band is having to continuously up the difficulty the deeper one gets in the game to fully expose the various challenges. That and the matter that one MUST be in a multiplayer setting to really enjoy the game.

Though I'll admit to my families aural displeasure I had alot of fun sitting down with a guitar on my lap and the microphone on a mic stand (not included) playing and singing at the same time.

I truly can't think of any honest negatives. Beyond the pair of minor issues noted above this really is an awesome implementation to an awesome idea. Or at least it was for me, a fan of music games.
