    This game may be lacking some of the features present on other versions of the game, but it does not dissapoint in the area that matters most: Gameplay. This game is rock solid and worth the cash. I got it 2 days ago and haven't stopped playing it since.

    Although lacking some functionality from the PS3 and XBOX versions, this is easily the best party game on most platforms. It does a great job of making you feel like a rockstar even though you are still playing 5 plastic buttons.

    i got this game day one and i have to say its pretty good. It may not have downloadable content but thats not really a problem because of the dc packs that are set for the future. The game is as solid as the 360/ps3 versions so if you have the cash, I couldn't recommend it more strongly.

    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 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.

  1. This is the perfectly polished, logical extension of what Guitar Hero started and where the music genre needed to go. It's a real shame to see the Wii version stripped of some of the game's best features, but it still just flat-out rocks.
  2. Exactly what most people who own a Wii are looking for. This is cooperative gaming at its best – the perfect party game for friends, family, and new gamers alike. Even with its regrettable omissions, Rock Band has a broad audience of Wii owners just waiting in the wings to get their chance on stage.

    Ultimately, it is disappointing that so many features were left out of the Wii version. I would understand if the Wii just couldn't handle it, but Guitar Hero World Tour seems to be figuring it out.
