    A new GH game, who would have thought it? Personally, while I do love Rock Band, I think GH is just trying way too hard now, and its kinda getting sad. I know RB came out with AC/DC track pack and now the Beatles, and unplugged for the PSP, but at least they still support RB and RB 2 through DLC for the last 2 years straight. I dont understand why GH cant do this.

    Create a GH Smash Hits expansion pack as DLC for WT. The GH series just needs to die, and let RB take over imo. Activision needs to learn to quit while theyre ahead
    With everything presented, I believe Im the only one that was not impressed by MW2

    Haha that is true though. I personally love RB and after the disappointment I found in WT I wont be getting this.

    It is true though that GH is trying too hard. I mean they are releaseing a new game almost every month it seems.

    Not to mention that there aren't even any new songs here. With Rock Band, at least they are coming out with new downloadable content instead of shoving sequel after sequel down our throats. I'm mainly just curious now to see how precise the hammer-ons are in this remake lol.

    I just bought the game, and I think it's way better than any RB game. You can play all the best songs from GH 1 to 3 (including 80s) on drums ! There's nothing more enjoyable than playing Beast And The Harlot on Expert+ :P

    The Smash Hits version is the best songs from GH 1-3 as mentioned above, released for playing with drums and singing.

    It's way too big for a DLC pack, and I think it's fine. And I don't think that Activision is trying too hard - I prefer the GH series over the Rock Band series, though, I have to get Rock Band Unplugged for the PSP.

    The last sentence could refer to any of their franchises (COD, GH, TH, etc.). Once they have a good series going they just keep pushing out the games until everyone stops buying them.

    As for the songs on the game, and being DLC, they wouldnt have had to put them out all at once. Do something like RB and release 7-8 songs a week with the new achievements. Rock Band also puts out some of their songs from GH and GH 2 (and some from GH 3) as DLC.

    The achievements are the same as GH: Metallica!
    Finished the Endless Setlist on Rockband ... finally!

    Not exactly, they have some different ones, for example beat expert with all instruments, I am pretty sure that is not in Metallica. Also their are a few other, but most of them are from previous games such as Aerosmith, World Tour, and Metallica.

    Especially since Activision now has multiple developers pumping out GH games, just like with CoD. This game isn't even made by Neversoft.

    Definitely a rent for me. I have enough trouble buying games that are badly charted by Neversoft, but a game from even less experienced hands? I'll keep my $60 to myself, thank you.

    What?! Your looking forward to a game because of an achievement? That really doesn't make any sense to me. I mean I'm def. a cheevowhore but come on. Really. I didn't buy RB2 for the Steel Bladder Award and that cheevo is awesome.
    yup.....

    Well I was always gonna go for completing all careers on Expert, so the fact there's an achievement for it is a bonus :D

    Achievements obviously seem very familiar. I just need to buy a freaking drumset now. I have missed out on so much gamerscore because I don't have drums. I normally just buy the disc as is and use my guitar for lead/bass and headset for the mic.

    I played the demo last night, and it was meh. The songs they had on the demo were just simple on Expert guitar. Didnt do the drums yet, but if they are like the WT drums, I wont bother

    Same here and asking friends if i can use their drums is annoying and a slow process
