Summary: I went to gamestop looking for guitar hero: smash hits, but it wasn't their so i decided to get this. I didn't know half of these songs, but i still played it. yah, theres some really anoying songs on here, but i discovered some new good songs.
Summary: When i first got this game, i was expecting it to be an old fashioned guitar hero game like Aerosmith which i got for my birthday the year before. Rock the eightys was pretty cool with the songs. I haven't played this game in a while so i don't remember much.
Pros: I love the song choices and the last song is amazing!!!!!
Cons: I don't like how you have to complete a certain difficulty to unlock guitars and outfits...I unlocked it all but it's not that easy for everyone, especially beginners. But it's still an awesome game
good game but felt like an add-on to guitar hero 2

Summary: the game just felt like an add-on to guitar hero 2. The only thing that set it apart was that the graphics were slightly altered and they had different songs. I mean they couldn't even have 40 songs on the game? aside from all that the game was ok good at the most
Summary: Ok.This game was very interesting. I would have never guessed that they would have chosen those songs, I mean I was expecting some Deep Purple, or Peter Frampton, or even add some 70's music, like LYNYRD SKYNYRD (greatest band of all time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Summary: Let me start out by saying that, instead of being a full on sequel, Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80's is more of an expansion pack to Guitar Hero II, therefore it lags behind in some areas. One of those areas is the ammount of songs. Where GH2 has over 50 songs, Encore only has about 20.
Summary: It would have been nice to have a discounted price due to the lack of unlockable extra songs. For a first-timer go with Guitar Hero II, but if you love the 80's, got to have it!
Pros: There are some choice songs in this collection. I grew up in the 80's love the music. Eventhough same characters they did change the hair styles and clothing to try and match the 80's "feel". Also there are added 80's style tips when loading songs that are quite funny.
Cons: A few songs the sound levels for the background and guitar had lowered volumn levels halfway during play, but they aren't my favorite songs so who cares.
Conclusion: Christian, you have a great point– it doesn’t mean they did it right. Is the slowness of the delivery packs an Xbox Live issue or Harmonix issue? Not to make Harmonix seem omniscient, but it’s just as well a test of the Xbox distribution system as it is of us.
