Neil's reviewed Green Day: Rockband only hours earlier, and you can crosscheck your opinions with his here. Following in the footsteps of The Beatles: Rockband, the Green Day iteration failed to excite critics, who considered it more of a song-pack than a fully-fledged game, resulting in an average score of 77 on MetaCritic.
The premise is simple for Green Day: Rockband. You and your friends team up and step into the shoes of the titular band, strumming, drumming and humming (?) away at their library of tunes in the traditional rhythm-based Rockband fashion. The game contains 47 of the band's tracks, from multiple albums and singles releases, but the Wii version lacks its PS360 cousin's ability to export tunes to other Rockband games.
Overall, I feel Green Day: Rockband is ultimately a game for the band's ardent fans, whereas Rockband afficianados might be more well-off waiting for the third big release, and in the meantime master their talents on a real instrument, maybe? The supposed lack of variety, both in song-choice and venue location, mean Green Day: Rockband is a game you should only consider buying for the right price. Why not find a site that performs such a task, finding and gathering cheap deals for your favourite games to save you, and your wallet, extra stress? Wait...
