Rock Band 2 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii is the most authentic and ambitious rhythm action game yet. With a full complement of instruments including lead guitar, bass guitar, drums and microphone, it offers the complete package. But more than the novelties and modes of Guitar Hero, Rockband 2 is all about the music. It offers the added bonus of a vast library of downloadable content including songs from System of a Down, Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Elvis Costello and The Who, there's really something for everyone.

Rock Band 2 on the 360, PS3 and Wii carries on where the first game from Harmonix game left off, and doesn't reinvent the wheel. At first glance there's very little to differentiate between the two. The on-screen action looks the same, the instruments initially feel the same and presentation wise this is familiar territory.
