GamesRadar is thrilled that Harmonix didn't try to fix things that weren't broken and add in silly things just to add bullet points on the box – the original Rock Band was nearly perfect already. And even if they know the setlist by heart, they still find themselves running to Rock Band 2 every week and basking in the intoxicating clamor of the in-game crowd's standing ovations. What can GamesRadar say? They love living the lives of a bunch of rock stars.

* No cymbals just yet
* New drums still aren't that quiet
