Summary: This is a really fun activity for the whole family. However, the drum set is very fragile. The wire that connects the cymbal to the rest of the drums rips very easily. The first set we had came with damaged wires. They looked dry rotted. I got an RMA from Activision and they replaced the drum set.
Summary: I picked up the Rock Band 2 game since it is compatible with GHWT instruments, RB2 is much easier to follow on screen and feels like a more polished game than GHWT. Also I am now waiting for my 3rd set of drums, first lasted only 3 weeks, replacement set was DOA.
Summary: I have Guitar Hero 1,2,3, and Rock the 80's for the PS2. They were all great games. This one is just as good, except for one MAJOR problem. If you want to play career mode there is one, but if you want to be in a group and play career mode you have to re-start the game. We used to play as a family.
