When i sore it i was happy, 'yeah!!! GH ARCADE', but then playing it... it was just guitar hero 3. Dont get me wrong, i love GH3 but i dont have to put in 2 dollers after ever song i finish. Also the set list dosent have all the GH3 songs on it so that takes away from the fun. With sum of the of the songs also u have to put in another 2 doller coin. With the guitar its self, the 1st thing u see is there is no whammy bar, then u pick the guitar up and feel the weight differece, the guitar its self is very heavy. The good things i can say about is that it is two player, scoreing againist other people and its a Guitar Hero game. And yes i now u can put ur scores up against people all over the world online. But its fun when u get a higher score then the person who has just played after u. Overall the Acade version of the game is still fun, and if ur near an arcade with GH in it, play it!!
