"One of the best social games you've ever played, then? Certainly. The instruments are tough and a joy to play, and the Guitar Hero formula has been refined so that everything feels spot on. The new instruments – drums and vocals – have been incorporated tremendously well, and the track listing, while open to debate depending on your tastes, features a huge number of stone-cold classics and covers a wide enough range of genres that everyone will find something they like. Ignore Rock Band, its high prices and low availability – soon, this will be the best way to feel like a rock star without, necessarily, having the skills of one."
