    The tendency toward newer tracks, and the neglect of excellent older ones, is a bit disappointing, but as a whole, Green Day: Rock Band plays like a big, wet kiss for its fans.
  2. As a single player, you won't get much out of Green Day: Rock Band. The career mode isn't nearly as excessive as it was in The Beatles: Rock Band, and so it's just another great multiplayer game.
  3. But there are times when it all comes together majestically.
  4. Coming hot on the heels of The Beatles, Green Day: Rock Band feels like a big step down. But don't let that get you down, because Harmonix's newest installment of their popular Rock Band franchise is still worth playing through.
  5. Another year, another Rock Band release. Following on from the success that was The Beatles: Rock Band, it's back to basics for this Green Day homage.
  6. As fan service it crowd surfs into the living room with ample generosity and verve. But, irrespective of one's tastes, next to the breathtaking attention to detail of The Beatles project, as a celebration of a group's creative output the package feels a little insubstantial.

    If you think about it, you probably like more of their songs than you know. "Basket Case," "Longview," "When I Come Around".

    OK so if you like real punk (the kind that was all anti-capitalism, anti-racism etc) then you hate Green Day. But I think they're fun!

It's sorely lacking some pre-Dookie tunes, and some of the Insomniac/Nimrod/Warning songs are criminally absent, but on the whole, it's a good time for any Green Day fan. Expand
