Summary: My first review. This is a disappointing addition to the Guitar hero brand, after the success that was Guitar Hero 2, this feels very much like a step backwards. It's not even a proper follow on to GH2, it feels much more like an expansion pack for Guitar Hero 1. There are no extra songs to buy, only 6 characters, and the choice of songs appears to have been limited a little by future products (namely GH3 and Rock band) which adds up to a disppointment overall for me.
Summary: Having being a fan of Guitar Hero, i was impatiently waiting for Rock the 80s. What a disappointment it is. The song list is terrible, I was expecting to see some good bands on it like Metallica, Guns' and roses, Megadeth etc; but no, we get a horrible soundtrack. The songs and the song charts themselves aren't done very well either, in fact it became a bore and couldn't force myself to go past 4th set of songs.
Summary: Zuerst einmal: Ich weiß, es handelt sich nicht um einen gewöhnlichen Guitar Hero Teil, sondern lediglich um einen Ableger, dennoch emfpand ich das Spiel als extrem lieblos zusammengewürfelt. Die Titelliste ist zwar ganz okay und das Gameplay macht unverändert Spaß (darum auch immerhin 2 Sterne), aber der ganze Rest ... na ja.
