    i've played this on import

    can be rather tricky, since you have to coordinate both hands totoally differently whilst watching the screen - helps if you already have a clue how to play guitar

    it's always hard to justify £50 for a game, though

    and when you hear someone playing "smoke on the wayer" for 2 hours straight, it starts to get on yer nerves a bit

    i'm waiting for a conbination of eyetoy, guitar hero, DDR and singstar \o/

    I agree with that, I think if it was an Xbox game there could have been downloadable content.

    it's not so much a lack of songs, it's that every bugger just plays "smoke on the water" in my experience

    I don't know, considering a PS2 game is £30, paying £20 for the guitar isn't bad.

    And there's loads more in there than Smoke On The Water... I challenge anyone on Hard for Fat Lip... or Texas Flood for that matter.

    Got to say that I think this has more appeal than dancemat as you don't feel like such a clown... and head-to-head battles are simply AWESOME.

    Two blokes, Franbz Ferdinand's 'Take Me Out' on HARD and that's a rocking good time!

    I STILL can't do the solo on Killer Queen on Expert... I just suck so much at this!

    Dud, Fat Lip is the one you want... that tune is EASY to learn of by heart!

    If you are paying £50 for this game you are being ripped off big time, got it from a local store here for £35. If its above £40 daint pay it.

    Been playing it since friday and some of the expert ones are doing my nut in, I play bass anyway but it aint helping the fact that the expert levels are sheer lightning fast.

    Best song that entire game is cowboys from hell by pantera The god of shredding might be dead but he lives on when you wail on this song \o/
