I would recommend this game to people who prefer to play the guitar as opposed to drums or singing, as the songs were picked for the original games because of the guitar parts, and so the same is true here (Probably why I prefer it partly to WT). The tapping system is part way between GH3 and GH:WT (in terms of difficulty) which is almost perfect in my opinion and the note charts have definatly been made more challenging for a majority of the songs on here.
I was slightly disapointed that GHTunes downloadable content wasn't avaliable on here, but then I didn't buy the game for that, and I think if you want to purchase a first or long lasting GH game, go with World Tour, because thats not what this game was made for, only get this if you actually like the songs, because thats pretty much all there is to it.

Like other people have mentioned, the entire game could have been released through downloadable content as either individual songs or as song packs (I hope they plan to release the songs that didn't make it onto the game as DLC!)
And that brings me onto a major feature not included in GH: Smash Hits...the GH Store and downloadable content. This has to be a huge ommision and one i can't see a reason for. Having purchased some DLC tracks i was very surprised the game did not recognise my DLC are support it in any way. (I haven't played Rock Band yet, but i hear that title has nailed this problem by allowing you to copy your tracks from one game to the HD and all games recognise DLC...Nice!) Guitar Hero as a series needs to start offering these kind of features where each GH title is compatible with the next or it will suffer against the competition.
Another irritation i had and a feature which i wish they included (or will include in the future) is the ability to take your BAND with you. I don't really want to spend time creating and editing my band each time i purchase a Guitar Hero game, when it could detect the save game and use the Band information (if you want it).
I have enjoyed playing along to the songs, as the track list is pretty decent, but with some features missing and some great songs not making the cut Guitar Hero: Smash Hits is a let down.
Hardcore GH gamers will also love this. Almost all the songs are FCable (100% full combo) with the exclusion of TTFAF (which only a handful of players will ever achieve) and being able to replay classics with a more forgiving engine and better charting is fantastic.
There isn't a heavy emphasis on storyline or unlockables, but the bare bones experience is good enough, as the songs and charts are nearly perfect. The only thing lacking is downloadable content, but given the price, it's still great value.
