I was going by what I read, but if you like then I may give it a go.

I was listening to a podcast at the weekend that gave it a decent review. Given the system limitations, its a better than expected interpretation. Sound is surprisingly good (they played a bit of it), the add on controller works well, the only real issues are the vagueness of strumming the screen and the usual dependency on your musical taste. I've bought the other 5 and got my money's worth so I reckon I'll give it a go.

The first GH game I played was GH3 when I got it for Christmas last year on 360, so I am hardly an expert on all things GH.

But I like the control system, seems to work ok at the mo, but may be a little RSI inducing if played for ages. :lol:

Are the EU and US track listings the same?

Street Fighter Alpha 2 for Saturn. This the first time i've played an alpha game on a home console.

I must its bloody brilliant :)

One problem though, it seems a bit slow. Is there anyway to quicken it up?

Traded some games in today, must be the first time I've done that in about 10 years, and picked up Virtua Tennis 3 and Dead Rising for the 360. Also I should have an xbox waiting for me when I get back to work on Monday.
