I picked up RockBand 2 the other day and had a chance to play a little bit over the last two days. My initial impression is positive, I still love the game adn RB2 adds more to what was already a good game. No issue migrating the RB1 songs nor any of the content I had purchased over XBL Marketplace.
I had hoped that the game would recognize your progress from the first game but it doesn’t so I am starting all over again. I still can’t play very consistently on hard but I am usually able to get through a song without failing, at least on Bass which is easier than guitar.
I think there needs to be a level between medium and hard. Between the speed up and adding the orange note, I really struggle with hard. I need Medium-Hard where it is at the pace of Medium but adds the orange note.
