For two years now, Guitar Hero has ruled the music genre with a fret-blazing iron fist. That reign is now contested by Rock Band, which happens to come from the same guys who made Guitar Hero what it is today. Now that their creation is in the hands of another studio, who's to know which team brings the rock?
For the answer, GamesRadar turns to their custom-built comparison videos that split the screen right down the middle - Guitar Hero III on the left, Rock Band on the right. The two games share six songs, so they played them on hard and stacked them against each other with the actual song playing over them. They're mainly curious to see who gets the song right. Is it Harmonix at Rock Band or Neversoft at Guitar Hero?
