From what I've heard.. no. It's only gotten 1 review, and it's was a D by 1up. I'm going to rent it though anyway because like you, I'm a sucker for rhythm games :P.

I think Guitar Hero and Rock Band play better, but I think this game could be worth a rental.

i just bought it and the sound track is "unique" to say the least. But i like it and i also like music games.

absolutley not. Rent it, get your 300 or so points, then get rid of it and never look back. I haven't been able to get one online match in three days, and then looked on the leaderboard page and saw I was in the top ten, but then realized there are less than 500 people that have played the game so i'm not really that cool. This game is a piece of trash.

Turns out this game must be really bad. I can't find it at any of the blockbusters around here and neither at the other local movie renters. And for some reason Gamefly has run out of copies (must be a top renter lol). Heck, even Wal-mart and Target doesn't carry it here. Sure it will be on the 19.99US bins soon...

I just got this from gamefly and have been saying if i could get it for 19.99 or less I'd probably buy it....lol

Most stores have sold 0 copies of the game.
It's drums didn't even come out when it came out.
Pretty much no one wants this, so don't buy it.

Giant Bomb wouldn't even talk about it.
I never really did like Guitar Freaks, so I'm not shocked at the quality here. They might have been better off just releasing a new Drummania but they saw Rock Band and Guitar Hero making alot of money and they wanted to cash in.

I for one don't let covers of songs get between me and my music game fix...even in this game a lot of them don't match well but I only found few to be hard to listen to. I might have bought this from gamefly if the interface wasn't so godawful. It's literally painful to look at for more than a few minutes...When I beat career I had to go to bed because my eyes were too fucked up to play anything else.

Great songs though; beats GH:WT at that anyway.

No doubt, I will pick it up when it hits 20 bucks because I am a sucker for these. The game was 49.99 at the end of October at my local walmart, seen it yesterday and it still looked like they had around 20 copies in the display case and it was also at its new price of 29.99. It will prob be on the floor in the cheap bin after xmas.

I picked it up last week at a Best Buy in (I think) La Mirada, CA for $29.99 and unexpectedly was given a free $15 gift card with it. Having played it for a while I will say that it is in no way worth $49.99 OR $29.99, but $14.99 isn't a bad price for it at all.

The control is crap (it loses sustained notes for no reason at all, killing your combos dead) and the presentation is Godawful but I'm pretty happy with some of the songs (Holy Wars!!!). The difficulty at times is strange too. Most of the cover versions are decent.

I would have to say that for the most part I have not hated this game enough to take the disc out of my 360 and smash it with a hammer (as I almost did with Assassin's Creed). Is that a fair statement?

I agree with the poster before me, this will be in bargain bins very soon. I'll go ahead and recommend it if you can pick up a copy for $15 or less. Any more than that, think twice.

I am renting the game from gamefly now and seeing that it cost $15 at bestbuy, I am thinking of sending it back and buying a copy. I don't think the game is that bad at all. Its difficult to play at first with the way the fretboard scrolls straight down, but it takes getting used to... the same as Rock Band did to those who played guitar hero first. I would definitely recommend buying this game for $15...

The covers might not be good... but the song choices are better than a lot of the no name bands in GH and RB.

Not bad. Not good either, but not has horrible as everyone said it would be. I'm renting it from GameFly as well. Not sure if I'd buy it or not ($14.99 is tempting), but I've got a kick out of the song selection thus far.

WOW with this kind of feedback i don't even know if us in the UK here are going to have chance to not try it :P lol

lol... you probably won't... I think that they had much higher expectations when they released it...

Yeah, I got it for 29.99 w/gift card too, but now Best Buy hasn't mailed me the gift card... grrr...

Time to go bitch at them for my $15 back!

I picked it up from Amazon for $20 earlier in the week. I see they are now sold out.

I say the game is definitely worth $20-30. It isn't as full features as Rock Band, but it isn't as bad as all the reviews make it out to be. The songs are all covers, but they are good quality. I'm also enjoying the song selection for the most part.

Got a $20.00 gift card from my brother for Christmas so when I saw it yesterday for $20 at Best Buy I couldn't pass it up. I'm a sucker for guitar games

yea its 20 bucks, got it a few weeks ago. it is actually decent but the songs dont sound as good as rock band and guitar hero.

This game is the bastard half-sibling of guitar hero and rock band. I played it on my offline account and I didnt like it at all.

I like rhythm games and everything, but this topic has kind of turned me off from buying/renting it. If I can get the 1000, I might. That said, I'll tell you all I've got 1000/1000 on GH2, GH3, GH:A. and Rock Band 1, and 970 on GH:WT. Can I do it?

I thought konami has some good new ideas, like the challenges. The way the multiplier system works, it actually rates from 1-5 stars so 5 stars are worth bragging about. For $20 I thought it was a fun buy and bc I love these rhythm games. The hardest achievements I think are Xpert everything guitar and Xpert everything drums. They are hard because some of the challenges are play 80 notes back by memory or play an entire song, get the target score while missing all the poisoned notes. A lot harder than you would think because of the 8x multiplier system

I just picked this game up from Target for $13. Wish I would have read these reviews first. :/

$13 is a great deal on this game, everyone else is paying $20 and it's not a bad game for $20 either

You should have waited, that was their 30% off. Its now at 50%, 9.99, and I just bought it for that. I am sure in a couple of weeks when it goes to 4.99 (75%) there will be copies available. :)

Most definitely a rental...While some of the challenges were unique, I still felt a little ripped off even for $20. I like the Rockband/Guitar Hero games but I'm starting to feel a little let down by the track lists. It seems like they wasted a lot of good songs to DLC. I'm not about to pay money to "air guitar" a song I already own unless it gives me a sense of accomplishment (like advancement in a career mode or even better...an achievement). I used to be an avid music collector yet the last couple games have had a bunch of songs where I asked myself "WTF is this?"
