    Rock Band can't claim the high ground here, not after the first game. Harmonix carried their policy from Guitar Hero II of making some songs inaccessible to people who play on Easy.

    Ultimately, people who play on easy and people who play on expert both paid their £39.99. I'm glad to see Rock Band 2 has corrected this.

    I have a Wii, does anyone know if when i get RB2 will i be able to download all those songs that came out on DLC for the first Rock Band? The wii does not allow dlc for the first game unfortunately.

    They're still doing track packs, so I'm not sure. I guess it would take some work to go back and redo those songs and it might not be worth it to do it.

    I got Rock Band 2 today. It's not clear how I'm supposed to unlock new tracks. I've completed some of the challenges in single player, up to the supposedly Impossible ones but I still haven't unlocked all the tracks.

    It looks to me like I'm going to have to spend a lot of time playing the same songs over and over again.

    Fastest cheat way (though you'd have to do it every time), go to the modifier screen and use this code -- Red, Yellow, Blue, Red, Red, Blue, Blue, Red, Yellow, Blue.

    Fastest in-game way, go into the challenge mode and play every decade set.

    I'll take the second option. I didn't see where you'd asked the same question above until I'd already posted. Thanks. :techman:

    Other than Spider-webs, which I guess I technically already have in GHWT, is there anything else worth getting?

    "It's My Life" would be fun for parties.

    We'll be getting the whole No Doubt album (think I've bought four other full albums so far). Most of the songs are pretty good, and the daughter and gf will like all the tracks quite a bit. Every week there's at least something that we like for DLC. I think we may clip 400 tracks in our personal RB library next week or the week after (the country DLC coming on the 9th).

    Rented GHWT, after deciding that I probably wouldn't play it as much as RB, and not wanting to waste the cash... Played it two days and sent it back. Done with it. It's just not as fun as RB. It's easy to see which game was made by musicians and which game was made by Activision's crew.

    I'm not getting Foo Fighters. Not a fan of the songlist. I've decided I don't want to pay for songs for the sake of having them. I made a mistake downloading Garbage's song, and that was a waste.

    I would love playing all five of those songs, but I'm not going to buy the game just for that. Rock Band and/or Guitar Hero should put out a whole game of country songs.

    We've had a blast playing the No Doubt tracks. I think we're up for four of the five country songs, even though I'm not a huge country fan. The songs all seem decent enough to listen to, so that's good enough for me.

    I hope they don't make too much of a habit of interrupting the rock with more country and junk.

    I think if they got the heavy metal version of Ice Ice Baby, sales would be off the chart.

    That and Stan Bush's "The Touch."
