    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. But there are times when it all comes together majestically.
  3. As far as Rock Band games go, Green Day doesn't have the creativity of The Beatles and it isn't doesn't have the same breadth as Rock Band 2. Aspects of its sloppy presentation are a big disappointment, but when the game gets it right (and it often does) it's as good as Rock Band has ever been.
  4. As a band tribute, Green Day: Rock Band falls considerably short of The Beatles: Rock Band's lofty ambition and execution, but hardcore fans of the band are safely catered for by its mammoth bulk of musical content spanning Green Day's most notable hits.
  5. The late-career renaissance of American Idiot's punk-rock operas opens up the gameplay a bit, as intense riffage gives way to greater complexity and song structures that are more rewarding, whatever the instrument.
  6. 70
    It might be a little bit strange to bring out a Rock Band game that focuses only on Green Day. The game might lack some innovation, but proves that the Rock Band formula still works great.
  7. It's not their fault, but Green Day doesn't (yet) have the songs to carry a game like Green Day: Rock Band. Uneven songs and low difficulty makes this a game for Green Day fans only.

    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! AndOK 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
