Rock Band 2 - Box

Poncey hair not included

Hair sprayed blonde perm? Check! Tight spandex jumpsuit? Check! Grade 8 music talent? Ah, it’s only a game! Ever since the Guitar Hero series rocked the world with it’s mock rock styling’s, gamers and rock fans alike have been air guitar-ing to such an extent, that it was only a matter of time until they turned up the amps of rock experience on the series.

Rock Band 2 perfects itself as the sequel to the greatest music based party game of all. As well as being able to download songs off the internet (for a fee of course), songs from the first Rock Band can be uploaded as well. But with that said, Rock Band has a fantastic set list in its own right. With classic songs such as AC/DC’s “Let There Be Rock” and the legendary “Living On a Prayer”, you’ll be the envy (and annoyance) of your neighbours for weeks to come.

Players can take part in the new and improved “World Tour” mode, where you take your freshly created band on the road, making fans, money, and even staff, along the way.

Rock Band 2 - Party Play

Do this for too long and you'll see falling colours in your sleep!

With Rock Band being such a perfect game, there wasn’t need for many improvements in a sequel, but Rock Band 2 went further, by adding a drum trainer, an improved song select screen and “No Fail” mode; perfect for first timers/drunken friends.

Providing you pay the extra money for the complete instrument package, you have yourself the party experience of a lifetime. But as AC/DC said; “It’s a long way to the top…”
