Summary: This game is really sloppy compared to previous Guitar Hero games. The presentation just seems lazy and the visuals are uninspired. My biggest complaint is that they are foolish enough not to include a no fail cheat. Seriously, a "Guitar Hero party" will always be sub-par compared to a Rock Band party for that reason.
Summary: One of the symbols stopped working and my son no longer uses the drum set. Too bad that the only resolution to this problem is buying a new drum set. All of these products are close to being garbage.
Summary: These drums are so much fun to play-especially with the GH: Metallica game. Unfortunately, the set is nothing more than cheap plastic and cheap electronics. My first set stopped working after 3 months. Cymbals lost almost all sensitivity. I replaced the cymbals, but then the snare drum (red pad) stopped working. I attributed it to me just beating them too much, and bought a new set. Well, the red pad stopped working again after 2 weeks.
Summary: I bought the entire package on the cheap ($129) from Amazon mainly b/c I wanted the drum kit. Rock Band is a much better series, but the instruments for GH are my preferred peripherals. Activision is milking this series a bit too much all the while not matching the quality features given by Rock Band. Negatives: 1)The fact that GH:WT does not allow DLC to be imported like Rock Band does is a huge strike against the series in my opinion.
Summary: I preordered this game from Amazon, but impatience got the better of me, and I bought it from Wal Mart on opening day. My review is based on that band kit, but I will be taking it back today. Why, you ask? I played this game through two songs (Sweet Home Alabama and The Joker) and realized something wasn't right. I'm normally a 95% player on medium (On Rock Band 2) and a 90% player on hard. Yet I was scoring in the 60's on medium.
Summary: I am both Frustrated and Disapointed in GH WT. I was excited to receive it and as a vetran of the RB series, I wanted to see how this game played out. I mainly play the drums, so this is basically all I will discuss. On RB1 and RB2, I'm normally in the 95-100% on the majority of songs on Hard and am in the 85-90 range on half the songs on Expert. I've downloaded all but 15 songs as well so I have a large list.
