The Great Setlist

Rockband 2, a continuation of the previous game, has made multiple improvements that would normally merit praise, and this is no exception. This is the best overall experience you can get in the music genre today. The instruments have been significantly improved upon. The guitar, for example, has quieter, more easily felt buttons that make it seem more as though you are playing an actual guitar rather than a piece of plastic. The strum bar, however, is still the same basic idea that has frustrated Rockband players since the dawn of this series. It has been improved slightly from its predecessor; however, it still has that difficult to follow feeling of being "squishy", as I have heard multiple people call it. The drum kit has had so many improvements from the previous version that there are almost too many to mention, but I will give it a try. The pads now contain a gel like substance that gives excellent rebound and makes it much quieter than the previous kit. It is, however, less realistic feeling from the previous version, as the gel makes it more soft feeling and less like a real drum. They have also fixed the problem of breaking kick pedals with a simple metal reinforcement that should have been there from the beginning, but I give credit where it is due, even if it is late. The format of the game is almost the same as the previous game except for the fact of smooth playability. The ability to make a setlist is a very welcome edition, and the graphics make for an enhanced experience, though I was personally more than happy with the previous graphics. More power to them anyway. There is, however, one thing that has made me somewhat angry about this game. The new format makes some of the notes missed almost every time despite the amount of calibration one may put into it. On very fast parts, even if you are a fantastic player, you will miss the note. The setlist is the best I have seen from any of the games in this genre. This game is worth the price of the entire kit, even if you were to simply buy it for the sake of participating in this setlist. I use no exaduration here when pointing out the fantastic qualities of this setlist. Finally, the overview. I should think that this game was more than a welcome improvement from the previous game due to the increase in graphics, improved quality of the instruments, and a setlist that could be described as art. I rank this game a 9.25 out of 10.

Horrible Drum Set!

I bought this as an early Christmas present for my boyfriend. Within a week the drum pedal broke due to the extremely weak plastic hinge. Maybe if you have an 8 year old kid they won't break it, but if you're a teen/adult good luck, he really wasn't being hard on it. He contacted EA though and they were very good and agreed to send him a new pedal. However, in addition, now the entire drum set loses signal and just turns off every few songs. It's very frustrating to keep losing songs when you shouldn't, especially when playing online. This seems to be a common problem as we've read other reviews online with the same issue. Again, EA has been wonderful and agreed to send a new drum set, but at this point he's giving up and planning to buy the $300 Ion Drum Rocker. That being said, the game is a lot of fun, great songs, and a much better guitar than older versions. Walmart also seems to have the best price, at least when I purchased, and EA has been very supportive.

I knew I couldnt go wrong with this gift. I gave it to my husband but it was really for the entire family. We love playing it almost every night. It is a great way for the family to spend some time together.
