Grabbed it earlier this week and man o mighty does this game kick ass. And by kick ass, I mean it'll kick your ass. Christ they up the ante. I'll be able to go back to Bark at the Moon and breeze right through it after tackling what I had to deal with this time.
I was mixed about the playlist once I heard it. For the most part, it's miles past the original (Allman Bros = SQUEE!!!!), but then they have songs that just have me going, "What is WRONG with you!?" I mean seriously...Cherry Pie!? Others are just personal preferences that I could do without (sorry to possibly offend, but Heart is chick flick rock).
One thing I've noticed is that the guitar that came with the game doesn't seem to be as responcive as the original, which has caused me some grief before I finally switch to old reliable and stuck my roomate with the bad one. I might just go and return the whole thing and hope it's just a defect for this one.
Speaking of which, co-op is da muthaf*ckin BOMB yo! As soon as my roommate tackled Butthole Surfers with me, he was hooked. God willing, they'll make a co-op career mode next game.
So yeah, in summary, this game rocks!
