Even though I have the complete World Tour on pre-order, I believe the gameplay of Rock Band 2 is much better.

And yes, all the instruments are cross-compatable.

I prefer RB to GH, reasons including:
1. Vocals are actually fun to play.
2. I personally like the song list better
3. Its more of a challenge. (to all the GH fanboys that hated on RB for being so easy.. well you lose now) the timing window for notes seems HUGE I find myself thinking I really shouldnt have gotten that/those notes and I know its making me worse of a fake instrument player.
4. Maybe its cause I'm using the RB drums, but I dont find drums on GH to be near as hard. my arm got tired playing rebel yell on hard so I just started to play the double notes and the kick notes. (about 1/3 of the beats) and I didnt even leave the green and I did that for at least 45secs.

There both fun though, and all the rock band equipment works fine on GH.. not quite sure about the other way around.

BIAS! Posting this on the Guitar Hero forum! Honestly though I've enjoyed the guitar note charts on World Tour more than on Rock Band 2.

Rock Band Wins on the Band play aspect, and songlist, but no one can do good guitar note charts better than Guitar Hero.

dont get me wrong i like both games, but if i had a preference because of my Friday Night Lights (drunken buddy night) im going with Rock Band 2 because overall, everything works better in game and no one has to struggle with bugs in the game play.....or instruments in order to have fun and not kill your buzz. Along with Rock Bands LARGE setlist....i currently have 400+ songs including DLC and RB1 exported and there is something for everyone. GHWT only has at tops 90 songs. and they are 80% on RB. So sorry GHWT fans, RB has my vote being how its a party type game for me and the groupies win.

They are both the same game. Pretty much the same songs. You just have to ask your self, am I a rectangle kind of person or a circle kind of person.

between the two i think rock band 2 is better, its got better songs and replay value i don't know how much more of the cartoony characters i can take. RB to me just has a better feel but GH i think has more room for errors

While the basic gameplay is the same there are several key differences between the two that make a large difference in the end. There would be very little for people to argue about if the only difference was note shape.

in my opinion, GH is better. yes, RB has a better song list, but the GH instruments r longer lasting, and they look cooler =) but really, they r basically the same thing.. i can play as guitar, vocals, bass, or drums... I AM NOT SAYING THEY R EXACTLY THE SAME so dont say i am =\

lol these threads are the best arguments are inevitable. I love the GHWT drums (5 notes not 4) if u play wit the rock band drums you cant really say you have played the GHWT drums (and no i dont have any broken drums exept for the edge of the yellow symol dosent pick up but i dont care cus i usualy get close to hiting the actual yellow color on the symbol (: ). and ill agree that GHWT singing sucks, but i cant sing for crap any way. ability to make crazy ass solos is fun even if u dont get it to sound how you imagin. and if GHWT starts pumpin out DLC like Rock band GHWT will over power RB2 for sure

I like the songs better in GH:WT but the singing is horrible. Drums with the 5 pads is also a plus. I also like the HOPO's in World Tour more, they are way too tight in RB.

That and the fact we only JUST got Rock Band 1 the other week here in Australia. I've have RB since it was released in the UK though, I got one shipped over but it was a massive disappointment.

Oh, and online bands are also a plus to World Tour over RB1 .
