This weekend, I was at Funland with my family. When we were there, I went to the arcade section of the place. To my surprise, I found Guitar Hero: Arcade with someone playing it (I forget the song he was playing). I asked if I could play after him, he said yes. Problem one: you cannot put the coins in at the same time. When you put the coins in, THEN it gives you the option to play with someone else. Also, most of the time you put your coin in, it gets stuck!Bullshit. So I played alone. I skimmed through the setlist, and I came across an exculcive song, and next to it, it said, " Exclusive! Enter 4 more coins!" BS. I eventually choose "This Is A Call" by Foo Fighters on expert (yeah, I know). I failed. I am used to the Guitar Hero guitars, since I use them to play Rock Band because I like them better, but this guitar was plugged into the arcade machine with a huge fucking fiber optic cable. It was near impossible to move around with that controller around your neck. I also found then both the buttons and the strum bar were vary unresponsive. The buttons were "mushy." It felt like like the strum bar in Rock Band. Then the strum bar sometimes would click and sometime would mush and it was really dumb. The guitar had a horrible feeling to it.
After my failed attempt at that song, me and some kid did face-off and he picked "Sabotage" by Beastie Boys. He won. After that, I tried "This Is A Call" again on hard, and I still failed! I don't weather it is the timing window or the unresponsiveness of the guitar, or Funland got a bad machine, but when I go to play Rock Band I do just fine.
Call this bias if you will, but I sill have faith about Neversoft, and it's up to you if you want to believe me.
NOTE : The picture I got was off of google, and the guitars are different then the ones I played with. The ones I played with are the Guitar Hero Arcade controllers themselves, not the World Tour controllers.
