For this much I would have expected this game to be of better quality. Thankfully, I only rented the game, but I can't imagine anyone ever wanting to pay more than 30 for this game; and that's pushing it. The Pros: The graphics are pretty good, and the song selection is decent. They have some recent songs mixed in with some oldies but goodies, and a few songs I haven't heard of. The idea of redoing the songs in other genres was a unique idea, and the basic concept of the game seems cool. I like that you could pick different weapons to "battle" the other band and that you only got to use these weapons if you hit a certain amount of notes in a row. The Cons: The game was a great idea; executed not so great. Although it's a really interesting idea to take the songs and put them in another genre, like country or hip hop, while I was playing I mostly found it annoying. The way it works is that as long as your band has more points, the song will be heard in your genre, but if the band your battling has more it's heard in their genre. It's hard to follow the beat in the songs when their in a different genre, and to be honest it's not really fun. The biggest problem was the controls. I thought it would possibly be like the dancing mini game in rayman raving rabbids 1 for the wii, but it wasn't. Moving side to side with the beat didn't seem natural and it certainly wasn't enjoyable. It would have been much better had the control style been more like the mini game in rayman. Overall, I think that the slight annoyance of the different music genres was not the downfall of this game. To be frank, the controls completely stink. If you're going to spend that much on something like this, you're better off with guitar hero. If you're like me, and you were thinking about getting this game as a guitar hero filler until the next one comes out in june, don't bother. I wouldn't have even bought this game for thirty bucks, that's how bad the controls were.
No: I don’t recommend this product
