    So I picked this up with Crackpipe and Mince last weekend. Beat it in about 3-4 hours.

    The nerd at GameStop told me it's a short game but I needed more songs for Guitar Hero. First thing's first, the set list (as you may have heard) is not very good. Big band names, just not enough familiar songs. Secondly, the first 2-3 sets in the game, out of 6 sets, are very sloooowwww. You can expect to be playing a bunch of 2-3 button chords, followed by a 10-15 second solo per song. Not to mention, every song averages about 4-5 minutes. It's kind of annoying.

    Third and last, the game feels waaayyy too tacked on to the GH2 game. It's basically GH2, just 80s music. The menu looks exactly the same, the same graphics on everything, even the same stages. They added a few things here and there but nothing unique or fresh. You get money in the career mode to buy the exact same guitars in GH2. No bonus tracks. The only character you can buy is the Grim Ripper (who sports 3D Glasses).

    Just ignore this one if you're looking for more music. I beat the game in a couple of hours and threw it on eBay. The music's not horrible, it's enjoyable one time through. It's just not memorable at all.
