Review by Nick Chester:
"It seems like just yesterday that I wrote my review of the original Rock Band. In fact, it was actually less than a year ago.
Since then, gamers (myself included) have clocked in hours of plastic-instrument rocking, spent countless dollars on the game's weekly downloadable music content, and have heard Weezer's "Say It Ain't So" no less than 947 times. The first game changed how we play music games, giving us more options, more music, and more reasons to get together with friends to play "make believe" rock star.
When Harmonix and MTV Games announced Rock Band 2, no one was really surprised. But it did seem a bit soon for another game, especially considering how fresh the game still felt due to new content weekly.
So are we really ready to hear Bon Jovi's "Living on a Prayer" 947 times over the next year, or should Harmonix continued to release songs and leave well enough alone? Hit the jump to find out."
