The disc i got did not even work. I put it in and it got to the load screen and didnt got any further than that. After that i put in four other games and they worked just fine.

Video is glitchy on the Wii

I only played this game for about 10 minutes. I tried 3 different songs, guitar only, in career and quick play mode. Each song had at least 2 video pauses -- the kind of frame drops you might see in a laggy online game, but I wasn't playing online.

For a rhythm game, the frame drops were inexcusable. Seems like Harmonix was so intent on boosting the visuals, they forgot about the actual game play.

I'm a big fan of Guitar Hero and have always preferred it to Rock Band because the game play is more challenging and I liked the Guitar Hero songs better. Based on what I've seen of Guitar Hero 5, Rock Band is the better choice, because whatever else happens on the screen, the next notes are always smoothly streaming forward.
