I went back to NY for a wedding over the weekend. My brother had bought Rockband. For those that do not know the game, its a game that you play the guitar, drums, and sing rock songs (with a mic). My entire family played the whole weekend. My father, my sisters, our boyfriends. it was soooo much fun. It is such family unifier. My brother and younger sister had a fight awhile ago and hadn't spoken but this game brought them together. we stayed up late just to play. its so addicting. my father had such a blast. My mother loved watching us play.
I came home and bought the game myself. I can't wait to play now. I totally recommend this game for families. It is great family fun. and when you want to download game it gives you ratings so it tells you if there are any suggestive lyrics. Oh and if you have guitar hero (which is only a guitar) they are compatible which allows you to have both guitars and bass. so that allows 4 players.
