In short, I would describe this game as a missed opportunity.

The SingStar games recognised from an early edition that, being a social game, players wanted to be able to play different songlists without having to reload the game. This lesson has not been passed to Guitar Hero and, despite the fact that little work has been done to update the clunky interface and the World Tour game engine, there is no way to play songs from different games without a reboot and reload. Indeed, if you have paid for downloadable content for World Tour, you will find that even these tracks cannot be accessed from Greatest Hits.

Secondly, while this game promises much with the moniker of "Greatest Hits" I would question whether this truly represents the best of the songs from previous editions. Even taking personal taste into account there seem to be a number of songs on here which feel like filler, whereas there are truly excellent songs from previous Guitar Heros which have not made the cut.

I would say that if there are tracks on here you particularly want in your GH repertoire, then you may well get enjoyment out of this title. Anyone expecting improvements over World Tour, or expecting a complete social gaming package would do well to stick with World Tour and download the additional content.

Having personally come to the Guitar Hero franchise fairly late on with Guitar Hero III and then World Tour, for me this release comes as a welcome chance to catch up with the earlier tracks and with the added bonus that these early tracks also come with vocal, bass and drums thrown in.

It also benefits from crisper graphics than previous versions (at least the two that I have!) - on "World Tour" the lyrics for the vocals section were very difficult to read even on an HD TV with the composite graphics lead and in hi-res mode, however they are pin sharp on this version.

The RRP is a bit on the hefty side given that there are only 45 or so songs, but if you are waiting for something to fill the weeks until Guitar Hero 5 comes out, and if you can get it at a decent price, then it is a good purchase.

Guitar Hero is a triumph, but we are bored by the heavy metal dominance. Bought the Beatles recently, and that gives far more variety. If you like the range of tracks on this version, you won't be disappointed. Calibration is very important and is straightforward. However, it is not easy to get it right, and we have been recalibrating regularly.

When i first heard this game was coming out i just had to have it. I love guitar hero. It has loads of great songs from the older games, and because i havent got any of the older games it was a fantastic buy. If you do have the older games this might not be worth getting but if not then its a guitar hero must have.

In my opinion, a better experience than GH:WT. The classic tracks are more my cuppa tea, and while I miss the DLC, the number of decent tracks to DLC for GH:WT I think are poor. I'd skip GH:3 and GH:WT and go for this, and then get GH:5 later this year.

Good to have all the best songs on one game, and the band option is great fun however it appears that the people at Guitar Hero have put little effort in to anything alse! Rushed effort and no extras gives the feeling that this was simply a money spinner!

A good game which combines many of the great tracks from Gh1 to Gh 3 and Rock The 80's.

contains great songs as "Free Bird", "Cult Of Personality", "Play With Me" and many more well known tracks.

can recomend it for fans of the GH series :-)
