PALGN: "Rhythm action games are a big thing these days. Between Guitar Hero and Rock Band, it's difficult to see how anything else could possibly break into the mainstream. Adored by thousands and ridiculed by the minority, the sight of an arrogant grown man and his inability to play a real instrument has left many in search of an alternative. In a sense, Guitar Hero is comparable with Kings of Leon, promising to sell out to the masses with each and every new release. The problem with the two core music games of this generation has nothing to do with the actual gameplay, it has more to do with the people playing them."
