NOTE: This will likely be my last review of a PS2 game.
Graphics: 4/5 Slightly improved, but for the most part, look the same. The venues look the same but with a few added things around it to make it look like it's set in the 80's. The characters also have an 80's look. Still looks a lot like Guitar Hero II.
Sound: 4/5 The sound varies in this game. The covers go from pretty bad to decently good. Many of the songs are good ones, but not fun ones to play on Guitar Hero.
Control: 4/5 The game feels just like any other Guitar Hero game. On expert the game plays very well like always.
Fun: 4/5 Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks The 80's is, to me, a dissapointment. Only about 1/3 of the songs are fun to play, another third are okay to play occasionally, and the last third are absolute terrible to play. Rocks The 80's will be bought no matter what by a huge Guitar Hero fan, but is it really worth playing a good 10 songs for $50?
