Guitar Hero World Tour - Game Only
Im so tired
I'm so tired of Guitar Hero and others alike, if you ask me and 90% of the world we would all say that Guitar Hero has over stayed its welcome and owes us tons of rent. Don't get me wrong i do think this is a good game only, the first two. Now its just getting silly and repetitive and they need to calm down with this series cause there is only so much they can do. And where did all of this start? It all started with Amplitude and that game was FUN and original and now they just shove guitar hero down our throats every 3 months, cause it only takes 3 months to get permission and throw it all on a disk and sell it to us at a ridiculous price. All i'm saying is that this has over stayed its welcome and they need to calm down. I'm sure a couple bands were discovered through this series but it ruins the music for me to not hear the real singers. But they do have the permission from most bands to use there lyrics now so thats cool i guess, but i say again, this game has over stayed its welcome and they need to calm down.
whats rock band????
This game has greatly improved over gh3. ALthough it is a bit pricey it is well worth it. If you liked rock band you will love this game. It has become a greater version of rock band. The character customization has increased greatly. You can customize what your character is wearing what kind of guitar he has face paint , etc. Although these things are great the GH tune creator is a bit difficult to use but eventually you will get the hang of it. I hear people saying Guitar hero copied rock band, but guitar hero came out first and the people who created rock band were once part of the creators of guitar hero now tell me who do you think copied who? This version of guitar hero is a bit pricey but is well worth it. The game interface graphics have improved astoundingly. The drum kit for this game is amazing too while rock bands drum's have only four controls and a footpad, unless you buy the special addition, charging you for better stuff.
Broken, Beaten, and Destroyed
Don't get me wrong, I have loved the last couple of Guitar Hero games, except the last one. I have been playing them since the first one on the PS2. And I'm guessing this is the last one we will ever see. To keep up with the huge success known as Rock Band, they made a blatant copy of the game to stay up in the game. The song variety is okay in the game, but the few songs that are on both Rock band 2 and this game are completely different. In the Guitar Hero series, we are used to unrealistic songs because they make them much harder then they really are, and in this one it is no different, except they are made easier to appeal to newcomers. The responsiveness of the instruments are pretty shoddy at best, and are made much better in the Rock Band series. If you are on edge on this game, consider maybe renting both Guitar Hero and Rock Band and tests the differences, but I say you probably should go with Rock Band. RIP Guitar Hero.
Better than RB any day
I am a huge Guitar Hero fan and I usually had to play by myself or with others on Xbox live and it wasn't all that bad . With Guitar Hero World Tour I can play with more of my friends without having to hear "let me play" or things like that. Guitar Hero World Tour has much better graphics than Rock Band 1 and 2. World Tour has better sound quality than any of those games. Activision took the band theme and made it better by making more durable instruments like the drums and the guitar. They also made a wider and better variety of songs in their setlist. The Rock Band franchise only added songs that are a bit more weak rock like freaking All-American Rejects while World Tour has Ozzy Osbourne and Jimi Hendrix. Also World Tour was able to get real live characters like Hayley Williams, Jimi Hendrix, Ozzy Osbourne, Zakk Wylde, Billy Corgan, Sting, Ted Nugent,, and Travis Barker. Rock Band has none.
So I think that GHWT is much better than RB2. First off the songs are songs i know well and aren't ones i've never heard of and some of them are very good for example Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrex. Also the new create of characters and GUITARS/OTHER INSTRUMENTS is awesome. There is so much detail in them. The creating songs is fun but long and sort of difficult to do. The difficulty of this game is easier that GH III. I couldn't beat hard on 3 but i beat it pretty easily. The expert though is a very good challenge. Career is fun like usual. The new band part is fun because you can make a band with your friends or others and battle other bands. Also you can just have a local band. There is a new level also, Beginner, and it is so easy and it will be good for newcomers. The last good part about career is that you can change difficulty if you have to because you can't beat a song. So what i'm trying to say is GET THIS GAME!
Guitar Hero: World Tour
Guitar Hero: World Tour is the first game in the GH series that allows up to 4 people to play guitar, bass, drums, and vocals. The game has amazing next-gen graphics, and the camera angles make you feel like you are in the heart of a rock concert. The game has character customization, where you can make a guy or gal character that resembles you or can be totally different. World Tour supplies a large set of songs, ranging from alternative rock, metal, pop, and classic. The game features veteran bands, such as Rise Against with "re-education through labor" and Ozzy Osbourne with "Crazy Train" and "Mr. Crowley". It also has rookie band's songs, such as "BYOB" and "The Joker". New to the series, you can create songs. Although you cannot have your own vocals, you can use all of the instruments to make a good song to use in gigs on quickplay. Overall, World Tour is a great game. I give it a 5 washed out rockers out of 5
Great, but the full band features hold it back
This game is great. I bought the full bundle (yup, another $*** spent on plastic instruments) and the game is great. The guitar is nice, with the touch pad and the star power button, but it's bigger than previous editions making it harder to hold if you're standing and don't have the strap. The drums are cool too. I like them better than Rock Band because the annoying tapping sound from Rock Band drove me crazy. The cymbals take some getting used to, and even if you can't get the hang of it you could always just use the Rock Band drums. The mic is just a typical USB mic, doesn't really need to be explained. The only thing that bothered me is that since they made it a full band game, they need full band songs. That means no more songs like "Cliffs of Dover" and "Through the Fire and Flames" which have sick guitar solos, but not enough drums or vocals. I wish they could make different songs for each instrument, so then you could do guitar exclusive songs, and even add songs like Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" which is just fun to sing. Other than the song limitations, it's a great game.
This is my first review and it had to be posted. Rock Band was great and Rock Band 2 was better. GH2 was good and GH3 was good. I was expecting, after all the hype of how innovative GH:WT was supposed be, that this would blow RB and RB2 out of the water. The deciding factor was the inclusion of TOOL in the set list. Those songs and note charts are great, there's no doubting that. I came into this game expecting to see something that actually competed with Rock Band. Instead, I got an expanded version of Guitar Hero. The system is not very in depth. Play 2 songs, get an encore, unlock the next 3 songs. Big deal. Nice TEASE they throw in there showing the TOOL set and making you PAY $8000 to play the venue! What's up with having to pay to play a gig? That's about where I've stopped so far and that's the bottom line. It's worth so far keeping it around in case there are any decent DLC downloads. Another thing that's a bit irking, the 360 achievements are VERY multiplayer heavy. I pity those who don't have friends/family to play with live and online. It's worth giving a shot...try renting it first.
Ok we have all heard of GH and RB. Peronally i prefer RB so i bought that a month ago. Love it! yesterday i bought this. i felt like it would be fun. its the same thing! i beat it in 1 day and it was so easy. challenge is terrible. im a classic dude and it had some good songs but no challenge at all. the starpower is difficult to activate on drums. the guitar is really boring. the singing is probly the best. the recording thing is hard and takes a long time to make a song. xbl is weird cuz only 1 dude can have starpower and thats stupid. the downloads r cool but RB is way better. So now GH comes out with GH5 and band hero and dj hero. what! they dont need any of those. o and how GH has about 10 songs off of RB2 is weird. i dont care who copied who but they should have different songs. if your choosing between RB and this...... choose RB. youll love it with download stuff
Poor song selection
This game has to be without a doubt the worst song selection so far for both types of music games (Rock Band and GH). I can't believe that both games use the same selections of songs as their competitor. This new release for GH is by far the worst conglomeration of songs since GH came out. I mean it is unbelievably poorly done. Most of the groups I have never heard of, and would not buy their CD’s if you paid me to. Rock Band 2 by far is the better game because of its download content and song selection. GH4 has maybe ten or so songs that are even halfway decent, but the rest of the songs are horrible. I spent more time unlocking useless songs I will never play again, and this reminded me of GH Aerosmith with about the same useless songs in that one as well. Why don’t these company pay more attention to the blogs and see that not everyone likes all this new style rock, when you have the majority of age grouped people playing this game in their late 20’s to late 30’s? I would not recommend this game to anyone, and am glad I only lost ** bucks for the game and not the whole set that would have run me $***.
