4.0 out of 5 stars A couple of important remarks on compatibility 20 May 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having bought Guitar Hero World Tour complete with drum kit, microphone and a couple of guitar controllers, I bought this a few months later to make the most of the various accessories and learned a couple of very important things along the way.

First and foremost, the Guitar Hero World Tour drum kit works with Rock Band 2 but it does not work with Rock Band. I don't know if it's the same with the Xbox 360 version, so this information is directed at PS3 owners.

Secondly, if you don't want to miss out on Rock Band completely, you can import all the songs from Rock Band into Rock Band 2. However, to do this you need to make a one-off purchase of an electronic key from Sony's Playstation Store. When I bought mine I think it was £2.49p, so it doesn't break the bank. However, it's important to note that you must have a UK version of the games. You can play a US version of Rock Band on a British Playstation, but you cannot import the songs into Rock Band 2 unless you have a UK disc because the electronic key is "region coded".

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime! 25 Jun. 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This was the first retail game I bought for my PS3 (the actual first game I bought was wipEout HD, which isn't retail). Now, four months on, I still play RB2, that's how fun it is! I've already gotten rid of Guitar Hero World Tour... but I won't go on about that game.

RB2 has a beautiful interface, and I've never seen any lag at all (unlike the GH games grrr). And even better that I could import all but 4 songs from RB1 (which I bought secondhand for £10) - so that's around 200 songs to play. RB2 also gives you 20 free songs to download - wicked!

The great thing about RB2 is that it lets you get on with playing the game. The main screen is extremely intuitive, and songs in the 'quickplay' mode can be categorised alphabetically, by artist, by genre, or by difficulty. This means that if you want to practise your skills, you can catergorise by difficulty and play in that order. And if you have mates around and just want to jam, then categorising by artist or song title makes more sense.

In order to get most enjoyment out of the game, you NEED the entire RB instrument kit. The drums is by far the hardest instrument to master, followed by guitar, and vocals is easy (I finished the career mode on expert vocals, and I can't sing to save my life!). If you're after a singing game, go for SingStar as that'll push your vocal skills far more.

The online experience in RB2 is also brilliant and very easy to understand. You can choose to play online as a band, whether your own band, or to rock as a member in someone else's band. You can also play solo online, and there are various battle genres you can choose.

And let's not forget the RB online song shop: plenty of variety there from soft rock (No Doubt) all the way to heavy rock (Iron Maiden)...

5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch 4 Sept. 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Great songlist attracted me, both on the disc and available to download. Cleaner display than GH although I continue to use the GH guitar as apparently the TB one is a bit ropey

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than the competition 30 April 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I played Rock Band 2 more in two weeks than I did Guitar Hero World Tour in 3 months. The interface, art style and general appeal of Rock Band is so much better than World Tour's, and the downloadable songs are fantastic.
A far superior party game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock Band 2. Best music game by a big margin. 11 Mar. 2010
By A. Grey
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'll come back to what Rock Band 2 is all about soon. What I wanna say is if you're still undecided on what to buy between Guitar Hero and Rock Band, go buy Rock Band. The reasons for this is simple, let me share some history:

I have been a fan of the guitar hero/rock band games ever since the start, and it's awesome how far these games have come in the last few years. Harmonix brought the first Guitar Hero into the world, and man what a game. It had some issues, it was very tricky to perfect score the harder songs, but all in all it was fantastic. Guitar Hero 2 appeared 2 years or so later. With upgraded guitar controllers, and a tweaked game with more modes, and a fantastic set list, it was a perfect sequel. My GH2 guitar still works perfectly even till this day. It makes a mockery of some of the instument controllers that come with today's games.

After the success of GH2, Harmonix sold the Guitar Hero brand to Activision. At the time, I couldn't understand that, but Harmonix knew what they were doing ;) They had something bigger in the works. Once that happened, not knowing what Harmonix had planned, it was a very sad day. I suspected Activision wouldn't be able to deliver a game as good as Guitar Hero 2, and a year or so later, my suspicions happened. GH3: "Legend" (Slash) of Rock appeared, and to start with all seemed well. It was still fun, but something wasn't quite the same. The new modes seemed a big too gimmicky, and actually the game didn't feel the same to play. The quick solos were too easy, they felt like all you had to do is press the buttons in sequence, no matter how late you were with it. Then games like GH: Aerosmith, GH: World Tour, GH: Metallica came and low and behold the Activision way of milking a franchise name until it's udders are bleeding!
