    If only they had thought of it before Rock Band

    GHWT is certainly an upgrade from the other GH games. Including the mic and the drums drastically expands the possibilities of the game and allows for a greater simulation of being in a real band. While many of the thi... Read Full Review

    Rock Band 2

    The original band simulator has improved upon itself greatly for the Wii.

    RB2 is clearly the best band simulator on the market currently. With the cleanest look, strongest song selection and solid online features, you get the most bang for your buck with this game. Rather than rehashing the ... Read Full Review
