I dont understand how people could say this is the best Guitar hero to date.. It might have been the greatest if the song selection was any good. When i bought it I went through the whole setlist twice on quickplay and didnt pick anything... I have to say that i would actually want to play 5 out of 85 songs that are on there, the rest just suck

Graphics are better than previous games and they improved allot of stuff such as GHStudio,Drop in Drop out party play,and more minor things.
So i guess i would rent this but your not going to be super surprised at how good it is!

I have had 2 copies and ran into the same problem. I have a guitar which came from arrow smith and the guitar hero 5 would not let me play the songs on both cds. I called walmart, blockbusters and another video store plus a gamestop. They have not heard of this problem and said they believe the disks are bad from gamefly

Great songs Horrible Gameplay

I have been a huge fan of any Music/Rhythm game that has come out since the original Rock Band and so I was greatly looking forward to this game!!! But beside having ramped up the graphics significantly I must say the game is a disappointment. But here's the catch: THE TRACKLIST IS AWESOME. For anyone that says anything otherwise, YOU'RE AN IDIOT. As a game developer you want to appeal to a wide range of people and yes you cant please everyone because music is like beauty, Its in the eye (ear) of the beholder. But to say that the tracklist is anything less than superb is just plain ignorant.
HOWEVER, the gameplay is just horrific. I have played the drums for quite some time now and the lag configuration setup is so far off it really destroys the game. I barely ever missed any notes on either Rock Band, my 100 songs downloaded, or GH World Tour but for some reason the lag on this game is frustratingly off. On top of that the sound is always behind because you can't adjust the sound in the negative direction. Frustration built to the point I just gave up and sent it back without ever having finished more than 4 songs. I really wish Rock Band wouldn't have made its next install a all Beatles game (cause its a little late and outdated) but I guess Ill just spend 60 bucks on DLC for previous titles because neither GH nor RB will be getting my money for their full releases this year.
