Hmmm 30 Songs?...Not.

Yea, Thats Really all i got to say.

30 Songs, For 50$, This is one of the games i thought i needed to buy, You know just one for the collection?...Well, They should have made this a Xbox 360 Exclusive Expansion, Cause that's basically what it is, Nothing new, Besides Songs and characters.

Makes me wonder if i'm gonna buy Guitar Hero 3, or Rock Band, Because if there isnt anything new i might as well go with a whole new series with ALL new gameplay.

Dont expect much.

If you where any good at the previous games, then you probably won't find much in this game. With only 30 tracks you have a small amount of choices. About 25/30 songs are very very easy on expert, its like playing on hard. The other 5 might take a few tries to 5 star, but after that, theres nothing left. Many of the songs are only fun to listen to, playing them doesn't add any enjoyment. I feel sorry for anyone who spent 50$ on this game unless they where a beginner. This game is a failure in comparison to GH1 and GH2. I kept the game for a day before sending it back.

Watered Down Guitar Hero 2

This game was a pretty big let down. After the great songs in Guitar Hero 1 and 2, I was expecting big things. I felt let down. This game seems like a quick cash in on songs that were left over from the other guitar hero games because they couldn't make the cut.
The game play is exactly the same as Guitar Hero 2 down to the menus, characters and venues. Only the color palate has been changed. There are less characters to choose from and no bonus songs to buy. The song list is pretty bland too. Only 30 songs and none of them are songs you can't wait to play again. I kept playing through some real lame tunes with hopes of unlocking a really good song and was disappointed when it never happened. Overall it was something to do until Guitar Hero 3 comes out. But I would be mad if I had paid the 49.99 there asking for. Thank goodness for Gamefly. Now if they would just put a shipping center in TX we would be set.
