Fans of Green Day can finally strum away on the virtual chords of their favourite band, with Green Day: Rockband, now available from Tesco Entertainment for just £24.70, if you input the promotional voucher code FTSL15-1 at checkout.

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...

Game companies are nothing if not predictable. Once they've got a winning formula, you can expect to see it milked and imitated, usually until it's a shadow of its former self.

So far, while the Rock Band / Guitar Hero genres have certainly been milked, they show no sign of wasting away. Indeed, they seem to be getting better and better (and next week I can tell you a lot more about Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock and trust me, you want to know).

One of the more interesting innovations has been the "single act" title and, after the success – and all round excellent execution – of Beatles Rock Band, it was inevitable Harmonix would find another popular beat combo who'd willingly have their back catalogue converted to console gaming.

The list of contenders was / is huge. You need, what, a fan base, at least one guitar in the band and a decent number of albums under your belt? SO you've got Queen. Oasis. The Rolling Stones. U2. Kiss. An almost infinite number of 70s and 80s metal acts. Excuse while I salivate - and worry about my fingers - for Led Zeppelin Rock Band. Perhaps more fitting for a gamer of my, ahem, maturity would be the two chord delights of Status Quo... Ho ho.

And so step forward... Green Day? Sorry? Green Day? Really?

Actually, when you think about it in more detail, Green Day is a very sensible choice. The Californian sort-of-punks have eight studio albums under the belts and a career that's spanned a remarkable 20 years (yeah, where DID it go?).
