Why all the bad reviews? This game does its job!

Ok, so I've read alot of the reviews and I would like to clarify 2 things.

1) The only reason I got this is because I owe Rock Band 2 and wanted all the songs from Rock Band 1 too. So I absolutely recommend going to the large electronics retailer than just went bankrupt (C.C. - liquidation sale), buying Rock Band 2 for $48 or less... and then getting this from GameFly and paying $5 to get another 60 songs or so. It's just a great deal and I'm surprised they actually let people do this. Anyways, for this purpose alone, this game gets a 10. I don't really love the song list, but there are definitely enough good songs to justify $5.

2) Even if you don't have Rock Band 2 or plan on getting Rock Band 2, both games (RB1 and RB2) can be played on the PS3 with the Guitar Hero: World Tour guitar. So, for all those people saying it's a complete waste of a rental because they don't ship the guitars too, all your whining isn't entirely true. Yes, it may not work with the GH3 guitar, but if you either have RB2 or the GH:WT guitar, this rental is definitely worthwhile.

(Note: I didn't actually test them out, but I assume the GH:WT drums and mic would work with RB1 too)

I got this game to transfer these songs over to Rock Band 2. It did its purpose. A 10 out of 10

This is a must buy if you have the money to buy the special edition bundle. Although the instruments are plastic, they are pretty well made, except for the bass pedal, and make this game extremely fun. Especially when friends come over, it's a blast. Before this game, I used to listen to a lot of hip hop and rap, but it opened my eyes to rock and metal which are also great genres of music. If you can afford DLC, (downloadable content), i strongly suggest it because it will affect your gameplay certainly a lot. So get read to rock and roll

P.S: I suggest getting Rockband 2 instead since it's almost coming out. That game is going to be great
