    Graphics, sound, and polish are great. MIssion structure, controls, content, etc. are all equally good as well. If you like music games, give it a shot.

    for those who are CASUAL players, you know, you might have reached medium in the old games and only easy in the GH series This game blows. Great music selection, but on Easy the notes are sparse, on normal they are ok, but in BOTH modes all 5 buttons are active... *SURPRISE* some of us aren't that good with the last two buttons and if so, you're going to suck at this one immediately.

    Rock Band is a great game. The presentation elements are top-notch and take music games to a new level; consider the bar raised.
  2. Rock Band has one thing going for it: the necessity to having friends to play and the willingness to work together. It may not be enough for everyone to drop 170 bucks on the game and equipment, but I can say if you even remotely have thought about this game, it is worth it.
  3. It’s a tool set that will be revitalized every time a new song pack is released, and with all the improvements over the Guitar Hero formula, one that will eventually become the de facto standard in music and rhythm games. For those who can foot the bill, Rock Band delivers a gaming experience that’s simply like no other.
