this game is NOT fun at all! the song selections are HORRIBLE!!! words cant express how disappointed I am with this game. if this was a make it or break it game it would more then break it, it would shatter it!! very very poor songs and worse to play, no fun, no nothing! dont waste your time
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.
