           why did they have to mess with the songs?

          I got this early because like every GH game it's region free so I chose to import it. It's a good game and new fans will like it as the controls are as smooth as ever, hammer-ons and pull-offs work great but you have to ask yourself are these songs really the greatest of the lot? - No + they have made the songs REALLY easy to play. Put it this way - You can play free bird with one hand for about 3 mins and I can do the intro to through the fire and flames on Hard with my Big Toe because of all them stupid strung together slider notes - not impressed :(

           Not Played but see the point

          Ive read a billon reviews on guitar hero games and ive played the hell out of No# 3, Aerosmith, world Tour & Metallica so when it comes to thease titles im definately experienced. Although I know most of you think "ive played thease songs before, why is it worth me buying this title?" heres the answer: How many of you have sat there while 2 of your friends have tried to get through songs and felt like you have been left on the sidelines? knowing that you could lend a hand by wailing into a mic or pounding the drums?... truith is, this game has taken all the fan faves and threw the whole band experience on them making the songs you know and love have more depth. All GH games keep you coming back for more and what i say to you all now is: Don't judge them as games, judge them as archives of legendary interactive tracks which you will add to your collection!

          Rock on!

           This is just getting silly!

          Why do people need this many Guitar Hero games? Don't get me wrong, I think it's bags of fun, seriously though; is there any point in making this many installments? I think it was fair to make a Metallica version, but now Van Halen! Everywhere you look, there's a new Guitar Hero game or Rock Band game being released. And now all this talk about a game called Band Hero!!! No doubt going to be exactly the same. Activision must make so much money from the sales of endless new Guitar Hero games. The only good thing about this installment is that you can play all the greatest songs seen in Guitar Hero games on every band instrument. However if you only have a guitar, there isn't much point buying this one!

           What A CON!!!!!!

          So a rehash of playlists I already have.
          Come on XBox. get your act together. Give the people who pay your wages what they want. How about some new songs. Its the same with the game "Lips". Hardly any new songs each month. I love my Xbox but Playstation 3 starting to look like a better option. Singstar has much better songs. Save my money for something better !!!

           Great Re-iterations

          Top 100  Reviewer Top 10 Games Reviewer

          all the best songs from guitar hero 1, guitar hero 2, guitar hero 3, guitar hero rock the 80's, and 1 from aerosmith.
          now made better with full band play, nice neat display
          my only problems with it is, some songs they didnt put in that i thought should have, like knights of cydonia, and paint it black

          The BEST NEWS EVER THOUGH IS. Activision anounced that, Songs From
          Guitar hero Greatest HITS.
          Guitar Hero World Tour.
          will be exportable to Guitar hero 5 !! woo hoo
