I was looking for a game my wife & I could play together one weekend with the gift cards I got for Christmas. I tried to include her by promising her the opportunity to sing and she repeatedly said "No way." Well a quick setup later she was intrigued - and we were rockin out! I was unsure about picking this up at first because of the high price tag, but it's well worth it.
Included in the package is a guitar, drum kit, microphone and game disc. The setup is pretty quick and easy and you're on your way to the top of the charts in about 30 mins. If you've ever played a Guitar Hero game or wished you could stage-dive into the arms of thousands of adoring fans, this game is for you! Easy to pick up & play and challenging to master - Rock Band is every music fan's dream. There are songs for everyone, from The Rolling Stones to Nirvana to Metallica, and you can jam out as long as you choose. There are even weekly songs you can download over the system's online services so it will never get stale.
The game is currently available for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and the Playstation 2. Don't let the price scare you away - the game is great for solo play or with a group of friends for a Saturday night rock-a-thon!
