"Big improvement over the orginal"4.5 starson by dlc2009
Pros: Fun gameplay, can't put it down without playing "one more song". Blast to play online with friends. Big rock endings very innovative. Checking downloadable songs from in the game gives you the difficulty levels of the song before you download it.
Cons: "who are they" artists, cannot chat while wireless drums are hooked up, if you hit the center of the drums softly it registers but if you don't hit the center it doesn't register unless you hit it harder. No custom characters in quickplay, why?
Summary: My drum set was good quality, I didn't experience any crosstalk (hitting one drum setting off the drum next to it). Get high quality batteries for the guitar and the drumset and they will last a long time. I got accustomed to hitting the drums in the center softly to keep noise down and then when I hit the drum off center with the same velocity it didn't register causing me to miss notes. Drums always seem to be at an odd angle no matter where you set the height. Auto calibrate is a welcome feature but it's not completely foolproof. Wish the bass drum spring was a little less firm. The microphone was a mixed bag, if I set the sensitivity high it would activate overdrive fine, but pick up sounds from the tv causing distortion and feedback, turn it down and it wouldn't do overdrive unless you practically screamed into the mic. But overall an extremely addictive game, your Xbox 360 will see a LOT of use after you get this game.
