October 16th, 2009 by Wii Game Reviews

Developed by Harmonix, the world’s premier music videogame company, and published by MTV Games, Rock Band™ 2 is the next evolution of the groundbreaking music platform that forever changed the face of music videogames.

Rock Band 2 builds upon the original, challenging players to put together a band and tour for fame and fortune while learning to master lead/bass guitar, drums and vocals, and raises the bar to include an entirely new level of depth, connectivity, authenticity and exhilarating features. The Rock Band 2 features over 100 songs – 84 songs onthe disc, plus an additional 20 tracks available for free download. Players will have access to all previously purchased DLC tracks, packs and albums as well as future DLC releases, as well as the ability to export most of the original Rock Band disc tracks into Rock Band 2. The music in Rock Band 2 features all master recordings and spans all genres of rock from punk, metal and alternative to classic and southern rock.

And if you have the original Rock Band, Rock Band 2 offers backwards compatibility with downloadable content – all your previously purchased tracks will immediately load into your Rock Band 2 play list. No need to re-purchase or re-download.
