The Rock Band is ideal for party games, even though in the lowest level or the easiest level some players may find it difficult to play. But with the no fail applications, even though some member of the band does not really know how to play, it is still produce to produce passable music. As an aid there are different trainers such as the drum trainer and the fill trainer and it all helps the players to create sensible music, keeping up with the beat aside from the nonsense banging.

There are 80 different songs in the Rock Band 2 from a variety of well known singers and bands from many recent decades and in many genres. These include the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Bob Dylan, AC/DC, The Who, Metallica and many more. There are also fresh and new artists whose music is also included in the selection such as Interpol, Avenged Sevenfold, Interpol and Rise Against. The entire selection is interesting and catchy but there are some complaints about some of the songs being too long as well as unfamiliar music from well know artists. This does make it difficult for some people who cannot relate or memorize every tune. There are also songs available for download.

With the compatibility of songs in both the Rock Band games a player can just pay five dollars and he will be allowed to transfer more than 50 songs from the Rock Band game to the Rock Band 2. But the disadvantage is there will be slower pacing because of the additional older tunes. The world tour mode is the only way of the player to proceed to the next songs. In this mode the first thing to do is to have or create a rocker then a band to start the tour then earn fans, cash and stars.

There are also in some parts in order to earn more cash. The major addition to the Rock Band 2 is that a player can join other bands created by other players online or join other bands of players online. But this tactic can only earn cash. It will be difficult for a player to develop his own band when joining other bands online because he will be obliged to follow what the online band mates want. The player will not be able to select the songs he wants and there are limited ways to earn.

The game is really aimed at non musicians or learners and as such has a fun element to it, but anyone serious about playing needs to look elsewhere to learn the technical aspects and perhaps just use this for practice or as break from more serious, and often very boring, repetitive musical study.
