For people who love GH i would suggest this game for playing all your favourite songs from the previous GH installments with the added addition of creat a rocker and band of course. I mean who doesnt wanna sing and play drums on Throught the fire and flames! This is probably one of my favourite GH's now brings back good memorys of when this game first hit shelves so this game gets a 10/10.

I'm a drummer with a V-kit so I rent all these rhythm games to learn the songs and get some gamerscore in the process, but it's hard to advocate much for these titles outside of that. Once you've played the songs through there's not much reason to come back.

It should be noted that there are some serious problems that persist with the online modes from the other Guitar Hero games: if one player quits, the match is over; it takes forever to get started if there's no singers around; difficulty levels are reset every time you boot the game; and the worst of all, the audience for this game is divided now across many games.

This all adds up to minutes into hours of time spent simply trying to get into a game and stay in the game without someone quitting, and is a serious waste of time given how many people quit. I have found, from spending a lot of time online playing these games, that 50% of Guitar Hero players are generally very immature people who love to pick metal songs, quit when they fail, and refuse to play songs they don't like. This all adds up to a very shallow and frustrating experience.

The more games they make like this, the more they'll divide the Guitar Hero community, and the more impossible it will be to find a match online outside of the release window.
