"The first Rock Band was revolutionary in one way or another. Having four friends rocking it out as one band in a video game was a farfetched dream before the release of the game. With the peripherals on hand, you were blessed with basically four games in one. The game play itself was not a major attraction; after all it was very similar to Guitar Hero, simply hit the notes rolling your way. The game lacked in its online offerings too and people complained about how it was a bit too forgiving and that the music selection falls below the standards expected. With the majority of those problems fixed in Rock Band 2 and with a larger music selection, this is by far the most complete party and music videogame out on the market."
