If you think Guitar Hero rocks...Rock Band kicks it in the head with some moshpit gnarled Doc Martins then stabs it in the heart with a Dimebag Tribute Guitar! The Special Edition comes with a drum pad (complete with bass pedal), guitar, and mic. We've been playing for the past couple of hours and it's so much fun. We've created our band and are already on tour. I'm on drums, Tristan's lead guitar, and Kara's vocals. If you want a game that's fun and involved the whole family/your friends...go get it!
