Wringing the last profits from GH2
It's not that I don't like this game, I mean come on... It's Guitar Hero. But I was very disappointed with the obvious attempt to get more profits from a game that ends up being a stripped down GH2 with 30 different songs. They couldn't (or didn't care to) come up with anything more original than changing the guitar players' outfits and the background colors of the venues. No bonus videos (though the instructions mention buying them), fewer characters, no bonus songs and the same old everything else. Then as an added insult, they sell it for a higher price than GH2. Knowing that Red Octane will not be involved with GH3, it really shouldn't be a shock that this version has nothing new. They even used more master tapes so they spent less on studio musicians to recreate songs. This produces a noticable difference in audio quality from one song to the next. With all that said, if you are a GH junkie like me (played through medium and hard in 6 hours), then you have no choice but get this. Don't get it if you don't really like the song selection as there's nothing else there for your money.
