Rock Band for Wii does lack some of the features of the 360 and PS3 versions. The main problem that i saw with this is that there is no DLC. Instead they have track packs which compensates that. All of the instruments were working perfectly when i started to play and they continue to do so. 5/5 for peripherals
All though you can't customize your own "Rocker" and travel from different show places, the career mode is still fun. You can have a solo career or a full band career. Another important factor that the Wii version lacks is, online play. 3/5 Campaign
The main point of the game is to have lots of fun, and that i did while playing. I could play with my friends and family and have a great time. The bundle may be a little overpriced but it still is a good deal. I would recommend getting the 360 or PS3 versions if you own one of those systems. But if you own a Wii and can't spit out the money for the bundle, you should rent the game from Gamefly and buy a instrument one at a time. Eventually if you enjoy the game you can buy it from Gamefly and be a psychotic rocker til the end of days.
You don't know you need the Instruments to play???

How lame do you have to be to not realize that if you are playing a MUSIC game, you MIGHT just need to get the instruments???? This game is very easy to learn, but not easy to master. I would like to have had on line play, but it is a great deal of fun for me and my family. I rate this a 10. I got the instrument bundle (guitar, drums, microphone, + the game) for the WII for $140.00, not to bad. Either way this is great fun for all.
