The game does have a few redeeming values - it has Finger Eleven's "Paralyzer" (which neither Guitar Hero or Rock Band have, so far), and the cover is actually pretty good.
One song, however, doesn't justify the rest of the game. Three engineering students weren't able to figure out how the World Tour drums mapped to the Rock Revolution screen, and their version of star power/overdrive is still a complete mystery to me - it took forever to get, lasted for about a second when activated, and had no discernible effect on our score, meter placement, or anything else.
If you have Rock Band or Guitar Hero, you really don't
have a reason to own the game unless you're curious enough to drop the $5 and inflict the game on yourself, especially since most of the soundtrack is either on disc or available as DLC for one or both of the more popular franchises.
