Wow this PoS sold a lot = (

If they picked the best songs, and there are some great songs here, and released them as a pack on XBL and PSN, it wouldnt be so bad

This game was a huge letdown after GH and GH2. If I had never played the first two GH games, and was introduced to this one, it would not make me want to play the other two. I'm amazed they can charge $50 for this game and have it sell 300,000 in the first week; this is just an expansion pack, and not even a good one at that.

Heightened difficulty level of this game detracts from the games enjoyment and playability. Unlike previous guitar heroes the game comes across as threatening to new players and discourages casual players with poor gaming skills. Since most of the songs in the other Guitar Heroe games were from the 80s too, I'm not exactly sure what the point of this game was.
