You get your new GHMix, versus modes without the wacky power ups thank god.
The music is a wide variety that makes the younger audiance and by that I am talking about the Teenies cry out about how horrible the song list is. So what if we dont have all this pop junk from today?
Classic Rock, Metal, Funk, Blues, Quazi-Punk.
If you cant find more then one favorite song out of the 85 tracks you shouldn't be playing this in the first place. The only complain I have is if you use Mr.Kurt Cobain in quickplay he is RIGHT HANDED!

Subject pretty much describes it. While the graphics were impressive, and they've come a long way to really get the on-stage presence to where it's actually entertaining to watch.. (Sorry.. RB does it so much better.. they "get" it)..
Sadly... the song list this time around was abysmal. Having to trudge through unknown songs from bands that sound like they belonged in the bonus track section, JUST to unlock songs that are actually popular or known... Maybe I'm just not keen on what passes as "today's" music, and I consider myself pretty broad-minded where music is concerned.
I couldn't bring myself to finish the song list to the end, and returned this after 1 day, with 4 venues left unlocked.
If this is the road Activision choose to take with the franchise, then count me out.

Ok, I've played alot of Guitar Hero Games. My favorite was GH 2, which had the best songs. Since GH 3, its just been down from there. The characters and graphics were much worse than in 2, and the song selection was terrible. I played Smash Hits, and the only reason that was worth playing was to play the good songs. I haven't played Aerosmith or Mettalica, but I'm definetly giving up on guitar hero after this one. GH 5 sucked, it had terrible graphics, terrible songs, and was just bad. Goodbye guitar hero, because Rock Band is 10x better.
