Erin Scottberg of Popular Mechanics says,
"Just like last year, the next generation of music gaming stole the show at E3. Three new full-band titles have been unveiled: the much anticipated Rock Band 2 and Guitar Hero World Tour, plus newcomer Rock Revolution. The competition is tough, and it's going to take more than a star-studded track list to stand out-this is a battle for realistic instruments and online audiences, without alienating non-musicians. And while all three turn you into a rock star, we found the gameplay experiences to be very, very different."
