Hopefully Activision sees this as a sign. It's time to redo and reword the Guitar Hero franchise. Rock Band does a lot of things better, and guitar hero should look at that and innovate from there.

his is a good game with a very strong setlist. Is it worth full price... no, but be sure to pick it up if you find it cheap or used!
