Summary

Not the best.

The Good

I liked some of the songs. Some are really fun to play. The characters were cool, too. Pretty creative.

The Bad

I honestly have to say I was not very impressed, as I was with Guitar Hero 2. There are only about 5 or so songs that are replayable. The rest you never want to go back to. Speaking of songs, there are only 30, making this the Guitar Hero with the fewest songs. The cover bands haven't really improved. I'd only get it if you're into Guitar hero games. Let's face it, it isn't going to fill the gap from July 24 to Guitar Hero 3. It isn't going to last that long.

The Bottom Line

This game wasn't what I expected. There could have been another whole section of songs. Basically, it isn't the best Guitar Hero game. Very few songs are replayable. You are better off waiting for Guitar Hero 3.
