so i just got a job so the first thing im going to buy is a 360 and either the new rock band or guitar hero game. im more worried about the instrument quality rather than the song because you can always download songs that you like. im leaning toward GH:WT because the drums have symbols on it compared to the improved rock band drums.

So which instrument set should i go with, the rock band drums and guitar or the GH:WT drums and guitar?

I just returned GH:WT because the guitar was defective out of the box (as was my coworkers). Before I did so I played through 90% of the game. While a lot of the songs were fun, I was never really challenged and I found myself bored through more than I should be.

Just remember I only played this on Guitar, nothing else.

EDIT: I forgot to throw in there I enjoy RB2 more. This might be because I got used to playing RB1 a lot.

RB. GHWT drumset is crap. RB as a game is also better. A lot more in depth career mode and much better online play. Better character customization as well.

My friend has Guitar Hero and I played it a few times. It was really good, and the track listing was pretty awesome. Can't comment about RB2, though.

Spend your hard earned hundreds on a new guitar instead.

Despite the whole "guitar =/= guitar hero" thing, I actually agree this time. You've got enough money for something useful. Either buy a guitar or buy Fable 2.

EDIT:

Guitar Hero has TMV, Tool, and ATDI, but Rock Band 2 has BTBAM, so it's your choice.

I like how you only mentioned your favorite bands there. I'll think I'll continue this stupid and opinionated trend:
GHWT:
Joe Satriani - Satch Boogie
Dream Theater - Pull Me Under (never been a big fan of this song, honestly)

RB2:
Dream Theater - Panic Attack
Mastodon - Colony of Birchmen

Both have Eye of the Tiger, which is awesome to annoy friends with. However, GHWT has tons of Tool, which loses considerable points.

haha good idea, but my guitar is an esp ltd eclipse 1000, so if i bought one for like 300 bucks it would be a bit of a downgrade.

Ive been told that rock band 2 has gotten better reviews overall, but I don't play either so I would get a real guitar.
Mr. Butlertron are you A handsome B smart C scrap metal or D all of the above
Scangrade thats easy I'm A and B but not C, so it can't be all of the above, but you can't fill in two ovals Nooo!
Mr. Butlertron the answer is C... you fuckwad

im gonna pre order GH. comes out quicker and the drums r better 2 play apparently.

woop.
#16
I would vote GHWT because
-Guitar is much easier to use, hammer on/pull off note things don't need to be exact.
-Drums look much more realistic with the cymbals.
-RB2 is more of a party game for everyone, has a few tough songs, but the GH series is all competition.

GH:WT has a better setlist imo, I say just compare them and decide

I have played both....although the setlist for each is arguable i must say i like Rock band 2 waaaaaaaay better.....it looks better, it's smoother...the career mode is way more fun and it even sounds better coming out of my sound system compared to guitar hero world tour....
#23
you should get RB2 cuz its got peace sells, almost easy, battery, dont fear the reaper, man in the box, let there be rock, Down with the sickness, colony of brichmen and master exploder, GHWT doesnt have that good of a set list
#25
im not really worried about the song list im more worried about the instruments, would you say that the GHWT instruments are better thand the RB2 instruments?
