I can honestly say (at least from the three songs I've heard) the the covers really aren't nearly as bad as I was expecting. If Chop Suey! is one of the worse covers, that's definitely a good sign. The Given Up cover sounds amazing from the video I'm watching now. The track list looked solid, the only thing that I was worried about was the covers. I'll consider picking this up now.

Thoughts? Anyone else pleasantly surprised? Anyone disappointed (beyond the fact that there are no masters)?

yeah, they are much better than i expected. there are even some songs that are not covers, though all the websites i saw said that the game would be 100% covered. i think this game deserves much more credit than its gotten. granted its no GHWT or RB, but its still pretty damn good. and its sure as hell not easy when it comes to the career challenges.

Overall, they are actually better than what I expected. The higher vocal parts of White Room make me literally cringe though.

Every Songs a cover.

I've only played the first few songs, Falling Away From Me is the best cover I've heard so far, All The Small Things was really bad and We're Not Gonna take it was ok, except for the WOOOAAHHHOOO part.

I have to give em credit, while The Pull Me Under and Run to the Hills covers made me die a little inside. But, at the sametime it's hard as hell to try and recreate James Labrie and Bruce Dickinson (hell borderline impossible for most vocalists).

Overall I think they did an ok job with the covers.

Given Up's cover was damn near perfect. The singer sounds exactly like Linkin Park's singer.

According to the In Game credits apparently the Finger 11 and Lincoln Park songs are masters.

Yes, Given Up and Paralyzer are master recordings. I think those are the only two though.

I thought the Metallica and Megadeth covers were alright. Havn't played Run To the Hills yet though...

A few of the covers seemed OK, like the aforementioned Metallica, but many of them are just brutal. Stone Cold Crazy? Ouch. Poor Freddie Mercury. And why does the guy singing We're Not Gonna Take sound like he has an english accent?
