here was a time when this jam fest rocked the music/rhythm genre by its lonesome, but more recently, the series seems to be playing catch up. Guitar Hero 5 brings us more of the tightly balanced tracks we've grown to love over the years. Now if only the folks at Activision could get their online store in order.
