    Still, despite a few obvious limitations, it's still Rock Band, which means it's a fantastic gaming experience that's great played solo or with friends.
  2. If the guitar gets a tad better, and the drums a little more ... well more, then I'd have to give it aces nearly everywhere.

    Not since Super Mario Galaxy will a game stay in the Wii for so long, and for many households interacting with all ages and introducing the kids to some great rock music is truly invaluable.

    Rock Band Wii rocks! This is easily one of the Wii's best games. It's got great songs, great graphics, and a fun gameplay. The only bad thingRock Band Wii rocks! This is easily one of the Wii's best games. It's got great songs, great graphics, and a fun gameplay. The only bad thing about this game is that it was released much later than the other versions. Other than that Rock Band for the Wii is an awesome game. Full Review »

    Good gravy. I love Rock Band, but this port is AWFUL. What exactly are you getting here? You're getting the same setlist from the PS360Good gravy. I love Rock Band, but this port is AWFUL. What exactly are you getting here? You're getting the same setlist from the PS360 versions plus 5 extra songs. You're getting the same gameplay as the PS360 versions. Annnnd... that's it.

    What are you NOT getting? Well, online gameplay for starters. Any multiplayer must be done in the same room. Plus, no online leaderboards. There is no outside motivation to get a high score or FC a song, and once you do, nobody knows about it but you. You don't get any career mode, so you're just playing songs over and over. You can't make your own characters, use Guitar Hero instruments, or export the game. By the way, did you know there is a game on the Wii that does all these things? It's called Rock Band 2. Get that one. Skip this one unless you absolutely MUST play RB1's setlist.

    Great game. Was not sure the first time I played. Found it hard, but once you get the hang of it really fun! Only thing I did not like was theGreat game. Was not sure the first time I played. Found it hard, but once you get the hang of it really fun! Only thing I did not like was the is no free play. Example you can't just jam around with any instrument. Would be fun if we could just play around and with out music and just go nuts. Maybe something to think about. Full Review »
