Green Day is ready to break it down in the 21st Century with the latest in the Rock Band series. Check out our review to see if this game is the real deal or just one for American Idiots.

Rock Band is a great game. So great, in fact, that it has been hard to make better. Green Day: Rock Band does not really try to bring anything new to the table, but instead offers a lot of insight behind a super punk band.


From Rookies to Dookie and Beyond

Like The Beatles Rock Band game, this latest Rock Band game features a career mode that takes you through a brief history of the band from their early beginnings to present day.


Green Day fans will be happy to learn that three complete albums are included in this game: the classic Dookie and the newer [kwlink 5384]American Idiot[/kwlink] and 21st Century Breakdown albums. There are also challenges that reward you with live performance videos and pictures of the band. There are also a bunch of additional songs in the mix as well.


Broken Dreams and Warnings

There are only three venues featured in Green Day: Rock Band. Unfortunately, the colorful and wonderful dreamscapes from The Beatles Rock Band game do not return in this game. On the other hand, the game is pretty true to the feel and image of the band and dreamscapes may not necessarily fit in with that.


Although a great band, Green Day songs can get a bit boring. For one thing, a lot of them are very similar. Also, the songs themselves are pretty simple. If you are the guitar player for your band, expect to be power strumming A LOT! The drum and bass parts are a bit more interesting.


For Minorities?

You will really need to be a fan of the band to enjoy this game fully. Since you are able to buy the Green Day song packs for Rock Band 2, you are really just paying extra cash for the career mode and graphics of the band members. If you are not sure whether you should get this game or not, you should try listening to all of Green Day's songs first.
