I'm not a huge fan of Guitar Hero, and I think it's boring as hell to watch other people play. When I heard about the Rock Band game I was very sceptic, but it is much more interactive, and I dig it! If you throw parties, or have more than 2 friends, you might want to think about investing in this game: It's a lot of fun. You get someone on the drums, the guitar, AND a little Karaoke action - are you kidding me? BRILLIANT.
