Just literally one of the best guitar heroes everWell, I would’ve been happy with it. I was told that every game the have, they refurbish and clean and this was not clean at all. Not to mention one of the employees said oh I herb the scratches will come out and if you wipe it and then CONTINUES TO WIPE IT WITH A WASHCLOTH!!!! YOU DO NOT AND I REPEAT, DO NOT DO THAT!!! IT SCRATCHED IT EVEN MORE!! Besides that, it is an amazingly game.

Best Guitar Hero game since Legends of Rock!!This game is GREAT!! Best Guitar Hero game since Legends of Rock. Unlike the other Guitar Heroes, WoR makes you keep playing the game with quest mode. Though, I really hate that I can't use the clothes and hairstyles from the characters (Echo, Judy, Pandora, Austin, etc.) for my custom rockers. Even though the game gets tedious a while after dominating the quest, quick play mode keeps me playing when I unlock cheats, instruments, and accessories. I don't know why people don't like this game so much. It may be a big change, but it's definitely better.

Not even guitar hero...I have always been a fan of guitar hero all the way from the first one, but this is just awful. Sure they added a bunch of new features and updated the graphics but they changed it way too much. They added sooo much unnecessary bullcrap to the point that it doesn't even feel like guitar hero. The setlist is pretty awful, only like 4 actual rock songs on it. Looks like they finally sold out and put bullcrap emo-pop music into it along with a couple good songs that were already in guitar hero before. The story mode is ridiculous and all of the songs are way harder than they should be. They add in a bunch of notes that aren't even in the song and make you play them as if they are. The guitar that comes with it sucks and the graphics are weird and make playing difficult. This "game" shouldn't even be considered guitar hero and if this is where all the other guitar hero's are headed I'm glad they stopped making them. The story mode is so terrible I could barely even finish it. (No I don't suck I play on expert and have beaten all the other GH's.) Overall: terrible songs, terrible gameplay, terrible story mode, terrible game. I'll stick with the old school guitar heroes tyvm.

Best Guitar Hero!I was looking forward to this game since the day it came out. It doesn't get old like other guitar heros. It is absolutely amazing. The songs people complain were to hard I found them to have a great challenge the first few times. It was amazing! I am blown away with it. Make sure to buy the Twilight of the Thunder Gods by Amon Amarth dlc. It is possibly one of the best and hardest because you are strumming fast and using double pedals really fast the whole song.
Can you play using a controller or do you have to have a guitar?
Asked by: Jennil
The game has 3 styles of play, Guitar/Bass (which requires a guitar controller), Drums (which requires a drum controller, either Guitar Hero or Rock Band will work), and Vocals (which requires a regular controller and a microphone).
