Summary

Fun, innovative game.

The Good

I really liked the controller. The SG is my favorite guitar. I also liked the characters. They looked like real people. Usually in video games they are cartoonish and unproportioned. The songs were better than the first.

The Bad

Some of the cover bands sounded nothing like the real bands (Particularly "Heart-Shaped Box" ,although Kurt is dead) They should have less cover bands in the next game. I also did not like a lot of the bonus songs ("Elephant Bones" being the worst).

The Bottom Line

This game is better than the first. The cover bands sound better. Definitely worth playing.
