If you have Rock Band or any of the recent iterations of Guitar Hero it's pointless to get it. Plus it's awkward going from the highway styling of scrolling notes in those games to the straight down approach (that and alot of the covers are pretty horrible).

The Best Buy stores by me also have this game on their clearance rack for about $5 a copy too. So if you REALLY want to buy this, you can also probably pick it up from BB for $5 or so too.

Mind you, I wouldn't buy this or any of the other rhythm games(namely because I suck at them), but for $5 ANY game is worth a playthrough.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

More so it's $5 for a full 360 disc game. If alot of people bought those terrible Burger King games for achievements then it'll be no worse then that.

Even at $5, this game is still $10 overpriced.

I bought the drum kit w/ the game for $7 at kmart. Drums are horrible, I played through 2 songs in the game before I couldn't take it anymore and then I put Rock Band 2 in. $5 is $4.99 too much for this game.
Check out by band Four Nights Gone's new single Crash and Burn if you like any type of rock (Three Days Grace, Breaking Benjamin, Chevelle, Avenged Sevenfold etc)

Actually, because of the insane level of difficulty and the type of scrolling down the screen for the notes which inhibits the view at high speeds, the achievements are really hard since many of them require achieving goals on expert difficulty. The highest GS according to a 360 achievement site I looked at is around 600 by our own flamedliquid. After seeing the difficulty of the expert level I was curious if anyone could get an expert achievement on that game.

Anyway, for $5 it's worth it to me if you don't mind not getting all achievements, if you don't mind covers some of which are lacking and some do sound like the real deal, if you love other guitar games and you need more cause you've played them to death. Basically it is inferior, but it's not as bad as advertised as there are some aspects that are actually better or a fresh take on the typical gameplay.

I think the joke that they'd have to pay you to play/own this game has been played out already.

If the achievements are easy enough it may be worth it in that sense. Plus I like music and I like games so a music game must be good! :|

I wanna thank all the televisions out there that raised me.

Man if I can find them for $2.50 new it's practically worth it just to replace the cases of games that have sticker marks from GS used (or new in some cases)

a couple of (gainable) achievement points are better than nothing (plus it's 5 bucks). Nice find CheapyD. I'm gonna go and get the game sometime this week.

I don't understand all the hate for this game. I saw it at BB for $5 as well today, and while I've only been able to play it for about 30 minutes so far, it's a decent game. Can't really compare to Rock Band as I've never played them, but as far as GH goes, I'd say it's on par with at least the older ones in the series. For $5, a good deal if you ask me. Only complaints I have is that all the songs are unlocked from the get go (or at least appear that way going through the list in quick play) along with how the notes come down the screen. Outside of that though, those are pretty minor complaints IMO.

I played this game a few months ago. It's pretty bad when compared to Rock Band or even to GH, but it's not *quite* as bad as most of the reviews made it out to be. It's far from good, but not the worst game ever made. I managed to get 580 achievement points out of it, and that was only playing the guitar parts. I think there are a few more achivements I could get if I completed a drum career, and then a couple hundred that I can probably never get because I'm not good enough on expert. I wouldn't recommend this if you were spending a significant amount of money, but for 4 or 5 bucks worth of trade-in credit, well...

By the way, I've never seen a game with a $4.49 used price before. That's the 360 price, the PS3 used price is $3.99. Weird.

$5? By one measure, I've heard bad things about this game. By another measure, I do have some experience with Guitar Freaks and I'm a whore for rhythm games. Count me in.

Heads up if you have PRIME and like music downloads

Problem: that's the DS version of the game. I've played it. There is absolutely nothing redeeming about the DS game beyond the fact that it doesn't break your DS. It is an absolute failure. Avoid at all costs.

If taking the game from them gave you a $5 off coupon for a future purchase, I'd think about having this in my house.

It's gotta flip somewhere for more than $5.

Agreed. I bought the game a long time ago when it first dropped to $10 and it really isn't that bad. A lot of the covers are better than some of the GH covers from the first 3 games. There's actually a very impressive cover of Breaking Benjamin's Diary of Jane. It does require some getting used to as the notes come straight down, but it really isn't that bad. Most people slamming this game probably have never even played it.
God never promised a smooth flight, only a safe landing.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I enjoyed the guitar game in RR more than the guitar game in GH4. It's nothing compared to RB2, but it's more fun than the notecharts in GH4.
