The upgraded software options are great, HOWEVER the song list STINKS! Especially for anyone under 30! Seriously, this is the worst selection of any of the "Band" or "Hero" games. Fine if you're playing for difficulty/skill...but as far as the "fun factor"....BBOOOOO HHHISSSSSSSSS...especially for the hefty price tag! We'll continue to play the old Guitar Hero discs and looking for a deal on the new Band Hero software so the kids and younger adults are interested in playing. Besides the disappointment in the choice of songs, we're satisfied with the functionality of it.

My friend purchased a wii console and it came with the gh5, once I played the game I knew I had to have it. It is different from the World Tour game but just as exciting.

I like the party play mode and the option to play any combination of instruments you want, but the setlist was kind of a letdown; I was familiar with only about a quarter of the songs on it. It would be nice if the music from some of these popular artists would be their popular singles instead of obscure album tracks. I'd also like it better with fewer live tracks since they don't sound as clean as the recordings.

I purchased this yesturday there are a couple of good new ways to play 2 player like you can both play guitars on the same song.but the selection of songs is horrible i listen to music all the time and only about 10 songs of of the whole game are actually good the rest i never heard before i believe for 60 dollars on the Wii its not worth it im hoping i can return this since i purchased it at gamestop.
