Rock Band 2 expands on Rock Band 1. No its not the same game with New Songs its more than that. The Graphics have been revamped and the Notes are now brighter and easier to hit. The gameplay is the same though which is the only thing other than the way they re-did the FX switch that bugs me. If you liked RB1 You will love RB2! Oh the other thing that is great is the ability to play all of your old DLC and old songs from RB1 on RB2. I think that this holiday season Guitar hero World Tour will have some competion. Rock Revoulution has no chance trying to compete with a juggernaut like RB and GH. So my advice for anyone who is a fan of Rock Band or has always wanted to play it, GET ROCK BAND 2!!! you really cant go wrong with this game unless you only have 2 fingers. Well i realy cant think of much else to say about this game other than its great!
