    Hi all,

    I sold my copy of guitar hero 3 last week as after playing rock band I wanted a full band setup as I found it a lot more fun to play as a group. My problem is I do not know if I should go for rock band or guitar hero: world tour.
    Now I do not know when the rock band 2 instruments are out in the UK but the guitar hero pack is out next week. From the reviews I have read they said (as long as they are not faulty out of the box) the guitar hero instruments are much better but the "band feel" in rock band is supposedly better.

    Has anybody played both and could offer advice? Addtionally has anybody tryed playing rock band (1 or 2) with the guitar hero instuments?

    Thank you

    I personally think Rock Band is a better game in almost all regards. The guitar's frets on the Rock band instrument feels much more natural. The buttons are right next to each other, just like a real guitar. The Guitar hero controller there are large gaps between each button (fret) which is very odd and makes it harder to play, Especially if you have experience playing a real guitar.

    Right been reading a lot a reviews regarding this now and the general opinion seems to be that rock band is the better software (just) but the guitar hero hardware is much better, BUT only if its not faulty. There seems to be sensativity issues with the drum kit :(

    There is a little app you can download for your PC to change the sensativity of the drums over USB. Its on the GH:WT website

    Rock Band 2 is the better buy. Cheaper and way better reviews than Guitar Hero WT. I have played both games and I prefer the guitar of RB2, but the drums of GHWT. Gamewise, RB all the way. So much more fun than the first. Peace.

    The thing to do is buy guitar hero for xbox cause the instruments are cross compatible, now as for the game my girlfriend love guitar hero cause of the music and love rock band cause of the graphics. Overall the games are the same so you should visit the respective websites and see which has better songs for you to play.

    Instruments are compatible with each other, so yeah.
