SBG: Rock Band 2 review


Queue the music. Rock Band 2 brings with it 84 all new master track recordings (that means no more covers) for rocking your face off enjoyment! Rock Band developers have always done a great job at providing great set lists for the game and have in no way failed this time around. The game's new track list ranges from 70's classics "Hello There" by Cheap Trick and Journey's "Anyway You Want It" to more recent hits such as the Foo Fighter's "Everlong" and Linkin Park's "One Step Closer". Like the original Rock Band track list? You can import all of your songs (except three) from the original Rock Band for just under five bucks. Aside from the killer jams provided with the game, a new sorting option has been provided for easier navigation while selecting songs. You now have the option to sort by song title, artist, genre, version of Rock Band, and a few others. This may not seem like much, but if your song library is anything like mine, you will appreciate it.

If you find yourself debating whether or not Rock Band 2 is worth the $60, look no further. If you enjoyed the original Rock Band but are tired of the same songs and find yourself awaiting the weekly release of downloadable content, then Rock Band 2 should be a no-brainer. 84 new songs and the extra features are worth it alone. However, the $190 Rock Band 2 bundle price tag is not so easy to swallow, but the original Rock Band and Guitar Hero instruments are compatible giving you the option to upgrade instruments later on."
