Basically the ps2 gets a stripped down version but all the tracks are here so if you are in it for the music then this version is fine. The setlist is great for the most part more classics less new junk, and some odd but choice picks SCREAMING TREES etc.. The mechanics feel particularly sound this time around and through a component cable this game looks WAY better than world tour in the graphics dept.
Unlocking Johnny Cash and Kurt Cobain is somehow more disturbing than it was with Jimi the last time around. There is no music studio nonsense and the challenges of the next gen versions are absent but the music sounds great and everything works as it should. TERRIFIC SETLIST overall and a great new system for playing through career hitting only the songs you like. The touch pad from my WT guitar doesn't work on this game however, 7.5 stars the trailer for DJ HERO feels strange as it features DJ AM talking about the art of DJing.

Mostly bad songs, some are not even rock songs!

Some of the songs in this game are good though. But do not get the game just for a few songs. Some of the songs are classics so just rent it.

GH 5 PS2 version

ok so i rented GH 5 and just got it yesturday
and tried it out today well i don't have my guitar with me right now
so i gotta wait to play the guitar part of it
and when i got my contoller plugged in
it says i need to have a mic plugged in idk if the game only works with a mic plugged in or if it's just cause i don't have a guitar plugged in
ANYWAY by from what i've seen so far it's not very good for the ps2
because of two things that happend to me when i tested it
1. it takes WAYYY to long to load
2. some songs just never load (smells like teen spirit never loads for me go figure the one song i wanna play dosen't load)
i would have rented it for my 360 but i need to by a guitar for it
soo basically if you only have a ps2 DON'T RENT THIS
OR BUY THIS
but if you have a 360 or a ps3 i think it would be WAYYY better
