    A minor amount of improvements that made all the difference... or not?

    Rock Band is generally considered a casual game. However, after spending 250 hours into it I can confirm it is not.

    Worth playing, but a little overrated for a few reasons.

    A little bit too much Live-dependent, but still a must have for music lovers.

    I've actually bought my 360 only to play this game, and I'm not even a bit disappointed. RB2 was my first 360 game and to this date is still the one I play the most. I just wish there were more ga...
