REVIEWS Dungeon of the Endless Review
A roguelike that’s equal parts charming and challenging with a turn-based twist.

Fantasy Life Review
Level-5 has always had a gift for creating endearing worlds and characters, but who thought living with a butterfly would be such an adventure?

Well, Gamergate has spilled over into the mainstream media and the coverage appears to be nearly uniformly dreadful. Take " What is Gamergate, and What Does It Say About Gender In Video Games? " by David Konnow as an example.  It appears that the writer has done little to no...

What do these ratings mean?

I like it.  Its a fun game to play at parties.  Its fun to play alone.  Over all its a fun game.  All the downloaded content from the first game transfers to the second so there is no need to repurchase your favorite songs or redownload them.  The upgrades to the instruments are nice.  The guitar feels like it was better made and they added an optic sensor to calibrate the game to your tv.  The drums are wireless and have the abilities to add cymbals.  The mic is the same as far as I can see.

The game is good they added a few extra features to it for online and local play but nothing i need to reiterate from the GR review.  As far as the game play its pretty much the same.  The same as all the games like this one.  The added features were a bonus to me  but the real reason I got the second game was for the instruments. 

I found myself saying who the F@$# are they when it came to the set list errr songs in the game.  There were alot of song that I did recognize and have alot of fun butchering the vocals.  I have noticed a trend in the weekly releases though.  It seem as if they put a song from a good album in the game and then later down the road they release the entire album to download.  Cool but costly, thats right I do believe that I have paid for this game 4 times over already. 

When it comes ot the latest release from the creators of the original Guitar Hero I would NOT pass it up.  Just keep in mind that it is very costly when it comes to the good old wallet.  If you do have the original Rock Band and would like to upgrade to 2 choose wisely.  Buying the game disk itself will get you what you want but if you want the new drum set and the wireless guitar then its probably cheaper to buy the special edition.  Hell you could always sell the old stuff on eBay, and having an extra guitar is always a plus.
