Summary: Guitar Hero Encore Rocks the 80s brings all the fantastic songs of the 1980s to the Guitar Hero world. If you're a fan of this era of music, you will be in music heaven! First, let me admit that I adore all of the Guitar Hero and Rock Band games. I think it's amazing that you can play along with songs you love, learn real life singing skills, and play with friends and family who don't normally play video games. These series are amazing.
Summary: I LOVE playing this game with my kids! I wasn't a big fan of Guitar Hero at first because it seemed a bit too challenging until my son walked me through the "training mode." I am now addicted and I LOVE all the 80s music!
Summary: Even though the number of songs to $$ ratio isn't nearly as good as the other games, this is still a lot of fun. If you are a fan of 80's era music, this is for you. If you are not, you will be disappointed. This is what the title says: Rocks the 80's...
Summary: Very good game..I have only recently gotten into Guitar Hero, my wife is a huge fan of the series and she got me into playing them. This is by far my favorite of the 3 that I have played. (have not played GH3 yet) Like all the GH series, its fairly easy to pick up if its your first try, and they have a very good selection of songs from the era. If you like the GH series, you will love Encore.
Summary: This game appears to be easy at first but I am failing songs on Hard and have just a few racked up for Extreme. It's got a great song selection if you are a fan of 80s music. It's a good game. Graphics and concepts much more simple but still very fun.
Summary: I highly recommend this game to those who love to rock out with Guitar Hero and those who love the 80's. If you are a die hard fan of Guitar Hero like me, then you will buy this game just because it's an opportunity to play new songs. This game invites a new generation to the game and lets them see just how awesome (and somewhat challenging) the game really is, they wont be laughing when they are missing all the notes that you breeze by.
Summary: This game is overpriced, but seriously, DLC on the newe games is 1.99 or more per song, so this isn't bad. But the setlist is top notch, and I don't need to unlock new characters. It is an encore pack, overpriced, but totally worth it! Wrathchild, Electric Eye...
Summary: I am an over-30 year old mom who has never enjoyed video games, until now. This game is super fun, all of the Guitar Hero editions are fun. Guitar Hero is the best video game EVER!!! It is always fun, but definitely better playing face-off with a friend (or one of your kids!) so buy 2 guitars!
