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: The idea is great, the design is cool, but the connectors fall apart as you touch them, the delay between drams and the video/audio is hard to sync, and amazon are helpful in return but not in adjusting the price while you wait for your shipment. Overall, I would have waited until the manufacturing of this game improves, and strongly advise amazon to allow price adjustment while shipping! BTW the guitar is ok the drams are problematic.
Summary: I am so glad I did not buy this game. I rented it at my local Blockbuster to try it out. I wanted to like this game, but I just could not get into it. I used the equipment from Rock Band 2 and it worked with no problems. The music from Guitar Hero is 10x better than Rock Band, but the game play was atrocious!!! Playing on Medium was way too hard...I felt like a maniac. Playing on Easy was sooooooo boooring. I felt like a 2 year-old playing on my first drum set.
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: don't waste your money by buying this game. If you are interested in games like this I would highly recommend buying rockband2 or guitar hero: metallica instead. The songs in this game are poor and the gameplay is quite lackluster. I wish I hadn't bought this game.
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.
