Rock Band 2 (Xbox 360)
Advantages: Great controllers. Quality game. Addictive.
If Guitar Hero was the next step in interactive gaming, then Rockband is the next, next step! Rockband was released in 2007 and this follow-up, Rockband 2 was released in 2008. One of my favourite things about Rockband 2 is the ability to copy all your songs from the first Rockband onto your Xbox 360 hard drive so that you can play them using just the Rockband 2 disc!
There are loads of tracks that can be downloaded via Xbox Live too, so there is a huge amount of music out there to play! I currently have about 300 songs that I can choose from and I also have the AC/DC Rockband as I am a massive AC/DC fan!
The game is very easy to navigate and you can jump straight into Quickplay and pick a song to rock out to, or you can select Career mode and create your own character to play within the many different venues you can play in!
Rockband 2 is so addictive and once you pick it up you really don't want to stop until your arms and fingers are aching! The game looks great and never falters' on the Xbox 360. I haven't played Rockband on the PS3 or Wii so I can't really compare them to the 360.
The Guitar controller is a lot quieter than the Guitar Hero controller because the strum bar is not as clunky. The controller really makes you feel like a Rock Legend!
The Drum Kit is very sturdy and has adjustable legs so that it can be lowered to any height needed. The foot peddle can be moved from left to right depending on which foot you prefer to use. The only slight moan I have about the drum kit is that it is a little bit too loud when you are banging away on them. You can but some rubber pads that fit over the drum kit and these dampen out the sounds, I really recommend these if you tend to get carried away whilst drumming like I do!
If you are a fan of the Guitar Hero franchise, I really recommend that you give the Rockband franchise a try as I find it to be a much more finished product!
Summary: The best party game available. So much better than Guitar Hero!
