This game worked at first, I went to work, came back and it wouldn't work after that.

Perfect

Wrong Controller

I'm sure this would have been a great game if I was able to play it. For future reference anyone wanting to play this game needs to make sure that they have a guitar hero controller, unlike me who has a rock band one. There should have a warning label or notice on the game page to explain this to future renters so that they wouldn't have had to go through the aggravation that I have had to.

Weak

Flawed beyond forgiveness

Well I am a giant fan of the Guitar Hero franchise and am proud to say that I have beaten Guitar Hero 3, World Tour and Metallica on expert. But literally 10 seconds after I started playing this game, I knew I wouldn't enjoy it. One of the main reasons I rented it was for the Avenged Sevenfold Song "The Beast and the Harlot", but I honestly don't think it is worth dragging through the entire boring setlist to get to it. Which brings me to it's next problem. I can't count how many times I was playing a completely routine section of just the same note over and over, and it would make me miss a note. It's physics are drastically sub par. poor design constantly undermines the player, the main example being that you can hardly tell hammerons from regular notes and they all constantly run together. I have played 5 songs and am forced to send it back.
If you are new to the guitar hero franchise, I urge you to start on world tour or 3. And if you have experience with GH, then don't waste your time with this game because it will only aggravate you.
