I tried the demo today and thought that it was pretty decent. The change in the button layout is going to be the biggest adjustment to those who've been playing Guitar Hero since the beginning. I instinctively tried moving down the fret instead of moving my fingers down. The lack of a 4th set of buttons for the pinkie that could have made power chords more natural to me as a guitar player seems like a missed opportunity, but I understand they are trying to make it easier to keep your fingers in an area and not get lost.
The FMV wasn't really noticeable since your attention is on the note highway. The sound on the tv wasn't high enough to really hear much besides the song so I'll have to experience everything with my headphones next Tuesday. I wasn't crazy about the demo song choices, but the actual setlist and GHTV look promising. Lastly, load times were minimal and looks like you can pop in a song rather quickly.
So what are your thoughts about Guitar Hero taking a semi new direction and making some changes? I think it makes me more interested in trying to get good at something new yet a little familiar.
