Worried if I'd be good at first, but once I started there has been no putting it down. The drum set that comes with the full set is not cracked up to be much, and if you get caught up then look for ION, it's the way to go. The guitar and microphone are great, and actually I prefer RB2's over GH's. While GH has more "detailed" statistics after each session, and more abilities to customize your character, it doesn't even come close to what RB2 offers! Moving forward by simply touring, having different people/items/points to strive for, OR just do challenges which add another level of trying to become better. RB2 is more focused on each player with drum solo's, guitar solo's, and base grooves. I will state that while singing having to tap the microphone to hit the "dead area" round points catches you off guard and can be a tad annoying. Enjoy the BIG ROCK endings, they are just awesome to jam and if you need it, a great way to pick those last few points to get that fifth star! Don't get discouraged, just use the practice and free style modes if you need. Even my 58 y/o father just bought this (we are waiting to try the online portion to invite him into our band) and is having a total blast!! The songs are a tad leaning towards the heavy metal side of things, but there are several great packs out there, No Doubt, Killers, David Bowie, The Cars and many more. Rock on Top Performers!
