The title might seem like a bit of an overstatement, but I'm serious. I'll be playing this game more than every other game combined until Rock Band 3 comes out. It really is that addictive!
For people who don't know what this is, it's a rythm game. Pick up the plastic instrument of your choice (guitar or drums) then hit the notes as they pass their targets, or grab the mic and sing as pitch-perfectly as you can (only pitch matters, so you can still score high while sounding truly awful.) Read a professional review of Rock Band 1 for a more in-depth explanation; I would go into it here, but it makes for boring reading (and you probably know how it works anyway.)
The things that make this game so awesome are: a) how easy it is to play, b) how difficult it is to master, and c) how great the (constantly expanding) soundtrack is.
Concerning c), this is the best soundtrack I've ever hear in a video game. Out of the 84 on-disc songs, I dislike just 1. Of course everyone has different opinions when it comes to music, but there really is something for everyone. Blondie, Megadeth, Panic! at the Disco, the Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan... the range and quality is incredible.
But still, 84 different songs can only be played so many times before you're bored of them, no matter how good they are. That's where the music store comes in. There are over 300 tracks availible to download at the time of writing (check Wiki for the full list) with more added every Tuesday. Songs are usually 160 MS points each, but you get a discount if you buy them as part of a pack (e.g. 3 song packs are usually 440 points.) It's a good deal I think, but these micro-purchases can quickly build up into a noticable strain on yor wallet.

My girlfriend would like to have this game, so I bought it for her as a Christmas present along with the XBOX360. I did it only to please her, as I didn't think that our interest in that game would be that big. After 3 months though, I notice that we still haven't given up playing whenever we can. Rock Band 2 is a very good choice when you invite friends at home, almost everybody (even if they're not into rock music) is curious to play and in the end likes it. The feature of downloading new songs adds many points to the gameplay.

After all, an investment that has brought back every penny.

now first things first i own guitar hero 2,3 and world tour and rock band 1 and 2 so i think i have the right to say that rock band 2 is by far the best out of ALL of these titles, the great thing for me is the amazing amount of downloadable content that has songs for every music fan from indie to metal, but the thing i really do love about this game is the fact that if u rent rock band 1 and are willing to pay a few microsoft points (about 600 i think?) you can get nearly every song from the rock band tracks on rock band 2 doubling your library instantly, there are about 6 songs missing but when you have over 100 more to choose from to be honest who cares? Now the things that set this game apart from world tour :
- Drums, yes thats right i said it the drums on rock band are better even if they dont have the symbol i just feel they are more realistic in the difficulty as i can complete guitar hero world tour on expert but can only do rock band drums on hard....
- Downloads, world tour has Travis Barker and Oasis but other than that it has nothing that rock band does not and plus rock band has full albums and a lot more tracks.
-Guitar, for a so called 'guitar hero' game you dont have to be that good to complete it i found the expert career so easy compared to guitar hero 3 whereas i cant complete rock band 2 on expert
-No fail mode, this is an amazing feature by the rock band team allowing any person to play no matter how bad they are making it alot more fun for the whole family making it light hearted and easier to move up a difficulty level if your bored.

I hope this helps anybody who cant choose between the two although guitar hero is 'supposed' to have better drums they really are not it looks flash but it all truth they are pretty rubbish if im honest, buy rock band 2 you will not regret it i promise you.

Rock Band 2 has some good songs and the gameplay is generally a lot better than its predecessor there are some nice features different to the first game: as you progress through the game you can now hire staff you start off with your mum as your number one fan then you can hire a street crew or intern and then have to get managers for your band to make it big. Having won the first battle of the Vans it is a lot easier than the first game as I had problems getting past the song Creep but eventually managed it. The game Fail doesn't seem to be as bad as the previous one and on the whole there is enough different about it to make it fun.

If I was writing a review of just the game I would use phrases like 'loads of fun' however this is more about buying Rock Band 2 and also the perils of it being preowned.
The online store, which is fairly essential (as you only start with a handful of songs) has blocked owners of Rock Band 2 to all recent songs because they have changed the licensing.
For this reason alone I then bought Rock Band 3, I didn't want to buy it as I probably only know 3 songs on it.
I was comforted that I could import all my songs from Rock band 2; or so I thought. Each Rock Band 2 copy has a unique "use once" code that gets you 20 more songs and is used to import the songs into Rock Band 3. Being preowned its has probably been used and so you're out of luck.
So if buy this then bear in mind there's no recent access to the online store and there's a good chance you can't import your songs into Rock band 3.
