    Much more to do than all the other Guitar/Rock Band games.

    Well, what can I say? I am going to be hooked on this for a while now. More songs than the previous Guitar Hero games, much better graphics, and there are also new challenges! For songs, you can get up to 9 stars now,... Read Full Review
