I was worried about buying this after experiences with GH5. This game is a definite improvement and the guitar controller is solid and reliable unlike previous models. The game has gone back to its roots including some of the most famous rock/metal bands. The music is great and the gameplay is just as good, no 2 songs sound the same. The only thing I would say is a little tedius is the story mode, you feel a little bit overpowered the second time round with all 8 powerups working all at once, but its still fun and the nice thing is you can import tracks from previous GH games too via the in-game shop, if you have the hard drive space.
