I got the game and I like it. It's way more of a challenge than I thought, but it is all covers. Most sound pretty close which is ok, but it lacks the "flavour' of the other games. No character customization, and they are pretty boring onstage. The crowd looks awful also. However, tunes like am i evil, pull me under, and holy wars are definitely worth it even as a rental. I find it's more challenging, and the gigs at the end of a set list, in which you pick 3 tunes and get no break inbetween are also cool. The game has mini games in it too. Poison notes is one of my faves, and there's another challenge where the difficulty ramps up thru the song. There are a lot of 80's-ish tunes on it, but I'm old school so it really appealed to me. If you're a drummer it's definitely wild. I heard all the crap people gave this game but didn't let it persuade me from picking up something I've really enjoyed.
pull me under is in ghwt, if you didnt know. I have watched a couple vids on youtube of this game, and the solos look waaaay to easy.
Are you getting the drums when it drops in a couple of months? I'm reading a lot of hype about the drums and like you said that its for drummers.
only because their are 7 pads, which is more than gh or rb. it will be hard..........
