Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
guitar hero smash hits has some of the songs from guitar hero 1,2,3 and the80s.But if you got the game for ps2 there are 2 songs on there from guitar hero 2 on xbox360 that are not on guitar hero 2 for ps2.They are The Trooper By Iron Maiden and Back In Saddle by Aerosmith.It will be worth the price if you buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than expected July 18, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Most professional reviews of this game say this is a decent game but too much of a rehash. I can't say I agree. Obviously, there's the fact that bass, drums, and vocals are now supported, but there are even improvements on guitar. Some of the songs were originally released as covers and now we get all the original tracks. Additionally, the charts were redone allowing for some of the World Tour innovations like slider notes and extended sustains. Some of the charts changed for the worse (to hell with the new version of "Psychobilly Freakout"), but some are better, and most are at least significantly different, providing somewhat of a new experience. Also, the level of challenge has improved.

Setlist:
PS2 users get one new song, Iron Maiden's "The Trooper" (originally XBox only). Otherwise, you've seen it before. The setlist is probably the best out of any Guitar Hero game to date, but only because there was so much to choose from. It's good but they could have done a better job. Also, 48 songs is a bit skimpy for a full price game.

Graphics/Interface:
Basically the same as Guitar Hero: Metallica. The graphics are good by PS2 standards, and World Tour style setlists are omitted.

Song Progression:
At first glance, it looks the same as Guitar Hero: Metallica. To progress from one tier to the next, you have to get a certain of stars on previous songs. However, it's a little bit different now. For one, the star requirements have been increased. Unlike Guitar Hero: Metallica, you can't just beat a small handful of songs to move on to the next tier. Also, encores have returned. When you beat every song in a tier, an encore song is unlocked. Aside from this, you'll notice the biggest difference when you get to the next to last tier.

3.0 out of 5 stars Guitar Hero Smash Hits July 25, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I didnt buy this game on Amazon i bought it at game stop because I only had cash but it was the same price. The game is a good music game but there is some ups and some downs.
The pros of this game is the music is their favorite songs from all the Guitar Heros from 1 to Aerosmith I think. I really loved the feature where you get to make your own custom instruments like guitars on career mode. Career is easy to do you make your rocker then you play the songs but its based on how many stars you get not how many song to go to the new place. The songs are already in Quickplay and you don't have to earn them by beating the season in career mode. Also there is a new difficulty.

The cons are the game has horrible graphics on PS2 don't buy for PS2 i dont know how good graphics are on stations like XBox 360 or PS3. The songs are a little to easy on Hard and Medium. The songs seem to be dragged on quite a bit especially on I Love Rock and Roll by Joan Jett. The game seems to repeat the same line over and over but I am not sure if thats the real song. The game sometimes says that I missed one I am sure I got but that just maybe a lag or something. Only buy this game when it is somewhere in the $10- $20 price range. If you dont care about the graphics then this game is perfect for you but if your used to semi-good graphics on the PS2 then this game will probably torture you. Hope you took this review helpful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid GH Title July 12, 2009
By Grant
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought this game as a farewell of sorts since I don't see myself lasting with GH/RB past this title. It's got pretty much every great song you can think of from the past GH games if you're a long time GH player. The older charts have been updated to be either easier or more difficult and its all for the better. Along with the arpeggio sections added in GH:WT, this one makes very strong use of ringing notes. A big thing to look out for on the PS2 version is that the load times (to me) are awful. I counted the load times for loading a song as anywhere from 1 minute to a minute and a half. Compared to next gen hardware (PS3, 360, Wii), and all the stuff they crammed into this one disc (guitar, bass, vocals, drums), the load times become acceptable. I also don't like that it saves after you turn on progressive scan; another useless 30 seconds, especially when you have to turn it on EVERY time you boot up the disc. Online multiplayer was not a selling point for me so the $20 difference to not get it on 360 was worth it to me. I'm happy with my choice, the pros of this game far outweigh the cons.

GAME ARRIVED PERFECT SEALED AS THE DESCRIPTION, DO NOT SEE THE TIME YOU START ME FUN WITH IT. The main thing is that it has the best songs from GH1, 2, and 3, with the difference that now you can play with the whole band! Buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hero Hits: Smashing Guitars? March 25, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Have you been playing GH for quite a few years now? Are you just getting into the GH/RB phenom, and are wondering what fun you've been missing? Ever want to play the funnest GH hits with a full band, to sing along with, or in "Uncomplicated Multiplayer?" Play this today, then. While some guitar charts are changed, it's generally in ways that make the songs funner to play, and everything that made them fun to begin with is still there.

About the only downside I saw is that apart from "that one infamous hardest GH song ever" (which is even MEANER on DRUMS! If you can imagine...), the "bonus track" areas of the main series have been entirely overlooked in this version. But it's really good for what it is; and it'll also save many PS2'sters a lot of disc-swapping to boot!
