good game but felt like an add-on to guitar hero 2

TheBigBee , GameStop

  • 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

Feels like an expansion pack...

  • Summary: A more campy / cheesy 80s presentation instead of the Guitar Hero 2 rehash would have been more satisfying.
  • Pros: New songs (and even a few must haves like Poison, Ratt, Twisted Sister, Skid Row, Quiet Riot).
  • Cons: There are no unlockable songs, so there is only 30 total. The song lineup isn't always about being a Guitar Hero... The death metal / skeleton decor from Guitar Hero 2 seems out of place sometimes.

Not what it should have been

  • Excerpt: I love the Guitar Hero games as much as anyone, but even I know a dud when I see it, and such is Harmonix's first cash-in title in the series: Rock the 80's, a game that's certainly a decent idea, but suffers from an overly lean setist and (at the time) terrible asking price, making it something...

A bit of a cheap cash in, something you may want to pick up cheap, don't pay full price

  • Excerpt: After having spent HOURS on the awesome Guitar Hero 3 : Legends of Rock, my wife bought me Guitar Hero : Rocks the 80's for christmas as quite frankly I love the 80's and everything about it ( I grew up in the 80's after all ) so this seemed a perfect fit.

WORKS ON PS3!

  • Summary: I'm not going to add anything about the game as the other reviews are spot on about it, it's more of the same but most of the songs are poor or average, I bought it mainly for The Vapours 'Turning Japanese' and The Police's Synchronicty II".

A good game but does not live up to expectations

  • Summary: If you own guitar hero 1 and 2 You will no doubt want to buy this game for the extra songs, just to expand your repertoir. However, be warned, This game feels as though it is a bit of an interim game whilst the programmers fully develop guitar hero 3.

Could do better

Reviewer, Amazon

  • Summary: I thought I knew a bit about the 1980s (being a teenager at the time) but I have to confess I really don't know remember many of these tunes. Having played all the songs I don't think it is a game which has too much replay value due to the poor choice of tracks.

Not as good as Guitar Hero 2

Mark Brown, Amazon
2 August 2007
  • Summary: I bought this hoping for a continuation of the hours of fun and gameplay I have enjoyed on Guitar Hero 2 (GH2). However the track listing is pretty uninspiring to honest. It does not rock like the tracks on GH2 do and is pretty disapointing.
