  1. Custom set lists and a new No Fail mode means you can play however and as long as you want. Buy Rock Band 2 and rock through the house.

    With Rock Band 2, Harmonix has created a game that's quick to grow and evolve... just like the music libraries of its ardent fans. If there's any game that reflects the age we live in, and the way that we interact with music, it's Rock Band 2.
  3. Aside from moaning about the shortcomings the Wii's technical limitations force upon the game, the only thing to complain about with Rock Band 2 – and it’s barely even a complaint - is that it polishes rather than reinvents.
  4. This is a must-have game for the Wii. It transcends generations, and even though expensive, will last for a long time.
  5. They've taken every aspect I could think of an improved it.

    Aside from a little less detail in the visuals, this is identical to what Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 players have been playing since September. It's a more user-friendly experience, simultaneously more challenging for the hardcore and more accessible for casuals.
  7. Buying more Rock Band within six months of the last one is an expensive prospect, but Rock Band 2 is the true Rock Band experience. [Jan 2009, p.88]
  8. With its large number of modes, weekly DLC that is accessible via the SD Card, online play, better instruments, a variety of modes, diverse soundtrack, and excellently charted songs, Rock Band 2 is the definitive band game for Wii.
  9. Every bit as enjoyable and addictive as Guitar Hero: World Tour. Highly recommended. [May 2009, p.67]
  10. Rock Band 2 offers a fantastic game experience no one should let escape, specially if we count the impressive track list included.
