I want to tell you why I like Guitar Hero 4 more: In a sense, it has an infinite track list because of the ability to make your own songs. It sucks that you can’t have vocals, but real rockers can work around that. I also like this more because of the wide range of music. While most could be filed under rock, it has tons of different “rocks” in it, you have metal from Metallica, classic from Jimi Hendrix, and modern stuff from Linkin Park and Paramore. It even has a little pre-molester Jackson in there. So that’s about it. You buy what you want, but at least consider both because they’re worth that.

    I’m loaning toward RB2 because of all the DLC and and the option to transfer songs from the first game into the new one.

    I don’t doubt that Rock Band 2 will be a great game, but Guitar Hero World Tour is the one that really catches my interest. I don’t have Rock Band 1, so I don’t feel any need to stick with that series, and Guitar Hero 4 has a bunch of new features and gameplay additions that surpass Rock Band 2’s offerings.

    Plus, GH4 has Jimi Hendrix 🙂
