Just when we thought the music genre of video games was a dying breed, the folks at Harmonix come up with a way to shake things up. Cue Rock Band Blitz, a rhythm game that doesn’t require a whole new set of peripheral plastic instruments. Let’s rock this review!

Without further ado, here is Marko’s review of Rock Band 2 for the Xbox 360.
After Rock Band 2 finally arrived on our shores most of the rhythm game nuts couldn’t wait to get their hands on it. Let me tell you…it was worth the wait. Harmonix did an absolutely brilliant job at making Rock Band the most immersive ‘Rock simulator’ that money can buy.
Let me just get right to the juicy part and just say that the song library is just spectacular. It includes everything from Punk rock to Heavy metal and it will satisfy all ages, young and old. Your dad will probably love some songs from the past or your best buddy will like all the famous nu-metal bands that appear in this game. Songs include some of the best artists from all generations such as The Who, System of a Down, Disturbed, AC/DC, Foo Fighters, Judas Priests, and Metallica just to name a few. The feature that takes the cake is the DLC (downloadable content). It’s just packed with great songs. Some legendary songs and some songs that are just awesome to play at a party.
