Last year's Rock Band one-upped this popular guitar-shredding sim by offering living-room rockers new instruments to jam on. This year, Guitar Hero strikes back with an impressive drum kit, microphone, and virtual recording studio allowing players to make and share their very own tracks. Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PS2, Activision, T.

The songs themselves are hit or miss, which is a good thing - it makes sure that there are songs for different tastes.
The guitar and bass parts are good. The guitar peripheral's upper fret board slider bar is stupid - the spacing is wider than the buttons at the lower frets, which is backwards from an actual string instrument. It's also a smooth surface, so you can't tell if you're fingers will be playing the right notes or not unless you stare down at it during the passage, and who'd be willing to memorize a passage so they can do that? Fortunately, you can play these sections on the normal buttons.
I don't like the singing parts, myself. I am a baritone-bass, but all of the songs seem to be either for tenor or soprano. Singing in falsetto gets old quickly. I can sing them down an octave in my normal range, but the game's recognition of intonation is iffy down there. The notation for the singing parts is terrible, and makes it impossible to tell what pitch you're supposed to sing unless you're already familiar with the song. You're supposed to smack the end of the mic to activate Star Power as a vocalist, but it's so insensitive that you have to hit it REALLY hard, and repeatedly. Not only does this interfere with your singing, but it left bruises on my hand the first song I tried this on. I recommend that if you want to try the vocal parts, you first look up and print out the lyrics (preferably with actual music notation as well) from online, and then bring a hard block of wood to smack the mic on for star power.
Despite all of the flaws with the peripherals, the game really is fun. The drum set part especially is great, since it's just like playing the real thing - play on Expert for an hour, and you'll notice the room temperature has risen 10 degrees from the workout.
