As mentioned earlier, Rock Band 2 is Harmonix perfecting their established formula with a few gameplay improvements and the addition of some new modes. While some may look at the offering and think of it as a simple track pack released on disc, the upgrades to the franchise really do warrant the release of a whole new game. With Rock Band 2, Harmonix has proven that they are still king of the genre and are fully committed to providing the best possible experience for both veterans and newcomers. There is no reason that any music game fan should pass on Harmonix's latest release.
