Hands-on – Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s

Hands-on – Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s

So Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80's came out yesterday. How many of you rushed out and grabbed a copy? While I wasn't nearly as excited about this expansion as I am about Guitar Hero III and Rock Band, I couldn't resist.

The game is pretty much the same, which is to be expected. It's only an expansion after all. Surprisingly, you actually get less characters to play with than usual. Only Johnny Napalm, Judy Nails, Izzy Sparks, Pandora, Axel Steel and the Grim Ripper made it into the game. Don't expect a lot of unlockables either, you get the same guitars as Guitar Hero II with the same skins, but no extra outfits for your characters, though they're already decked out in new 80's style threads.

Video after the jump.

Though I have found myself playing it less lately, mostly because I've just been too busy, but I still grab it out of habit. Even though it's bouncing around in my cargo pocket all day, I never really get too worried about it getting damaged or hurt very badly. Then again I'm not exactly rock climbing with it in my pocket, either.
