Saluting the top rockers of video games!

2) Rock Band 2

Released: Wii, 2008

Much like Guitar Hero, Rock Band didn’t hit its stride right off the bat. It wasn’t until Rock Band 2 came along that EA turned the series into the ruler of the music game scene. Though its gameplay was essentially identical to Guitar Hero’s, the biggest, most integral difference between the two was that Rock Band introduced three more ways to play. Along with the electric guitar, players could also perform using a bass (a simplified take on the guitar’s more complicated tracks), drums, and a microphone. Rock Band 2 had a great balance between its various instruments, and provided a more varied and engaging experience than Guitar Hero (at the time). With its seemingly endless DLC offerings, the game’s already respectable track selection became even better as players continued to add to it with their own selections. Sometimes bigger is better, and that was Rock Band 2 in a nutshell.

    I don’t really like music games… but have to admit this list has a lot of quality software on it.

    My only complaints:
    * Donkey Konga and Mario DDR were great ideas but Nintendo needed more remixed NES tracks and fewer public domain songs thrown into the mix
    * Rock Band 2 should be replaced by The Beatles Rock Band (not because Rock Band 2 is bad, but because The Beatles version is just that awesome)
