[edit] Background

Continuing from the highly successful Rock Band, the second edition comes it to up the ante. With over 60 songs from artists such as System of a Down, Linkin Park, Nirvana, Jimmy Eats World, and Lacuna Coil, the game is fully loaded for a new experience. There have also been some hardware changes as well, such as the padding on the drum set, so when it is hit, the sound isn't so loud.

[edit] Gameplay

Rock Band 2 packs in the most authentic music experience to be created- asking you to master either Guitar, Bass, Drums, or Vocals, or as a band in Band World Tour. With the biggest setlist to date, along with backwards compatibility on DLC, the music in this game show's "Who's who" in music and spans across every genre of Rock.

[edit] Features

  • Backwards compatibility: All previously purchased Rock Band download tracks will immediately load into your Rock Band 2 song list, with no need to repurchase or redownload.
  • Diverse soundtrack: The biggest and most diverse soundtrack ever features some of rock's most prolific acts, comprised entirely of master recordings.
  • Community connection: The new and dynamic online modes will connect the entire Rock Band community in more ways than ever before both locally and globally.
  • Variety of instruments: Get ready for new and improved drum and guitar peripherals, enhanced functionality, and innovative new designs, all fully compatible with the original Rock Band instruments.
