I hated it
2 April 2009 | by NexusHUBSee all my reviews

I just thought this was a disgrace. The song selection was decent, and being able to make your own songs is cool, but they still ruined it. Let's talk about the full pack. The drum set is awful. It double hits, which is a REAL pain while trying to create a song, it limits you to just two cymbals, and just three pads, which makes drum rolls and cymbal changing awkward, and the bass pedal is disconnected. While I'm using it, it slides away from me, so I have to pause and pull it back, which makes gameplay videos impossible. The guitar is also bad. The slider is badly done, and pointless. And the D-Pad is simply stupid. It's a circle, so it is near impossible to hit the arrow the you want. Let's talk about game-only, now. First of all, it does not chart every drum thing you do, which I just didn't understand, and speaking of drums, what is up with them? Adding that orange note was a HUGE mistake, because it makes saving money, buying it game-only and using a Rock Band drumset, so hard. Making a song is impossible without a decent cymbal, so that's out of the question; and Everlong is just awkward on drums, either way, but more awkward with Rock Band drums. Vocals, are also messed up, why do I need to get the right pitch for talking and screaming? Besides, vocals were just unnecessarily hard anyway. Now, the song selection is good, but gets boring fast, because of the large limit to songs. And it doesn't list them by difficulty, nor do you have the option to do so, so it makes trying out new songs, or being new to the game, very difficult. Also, the presentation, and the Rock meter was MUCH better done in GH3, and the rock meter and multiplyer were more noticeable, in all other Guitar Hero and Rock Band games, with this tiny one and the HORRIBLE graphics and presentation, you almost never know when you've missed a note. And I'd like my note streak to be a bit more presented like in GH3, please?
