Much Greater Than I Expected!
rated 4.0 out of 5
12 years ago

Well first off I'm going to say I wasn't planning on Guitar Hero 5 to be much more of an improvement from GHWT besides new songs, venues, and new competitive game modes. Well I can say i was wrong. Now to get to the game. The sound and song variety are great mainly a few songs felt boring, but other than that its a great setlist, Graphics are great aswell as the challange, controls of course are great but why wouldn't they and the interface is great too. The menus are easy to navigate through unlike in GHWT. The famous musicians featured in the game like Kurt Cobain and Johnny Cash, look real. The online play is much better and to have 4 people playing on the same instruments is a great thing too. The new competitive modes are fun to play also. Another great thing is if you buy the game now you get GH Van Halen free. So even though you need to mail your receipt and redeem your owner id on the back of the game manuel and print a paper with a bar code and with that receipt and paper you also need to send in the sticker on the front package, than wait 6 to 8 weeks, its a great do for 2 games for the price of one. GH 5 is the best gh game in the series well since harmonix stopped making the gh games after 2. If you want a great music game that has been released this year, look no further than GH 5, its as great as either one of the Rock Band games.

All time favorite Guitar Hero
rated 5.0 out of 5

I love this one out of all the series! The tracks are all awesome. A mix of old skool and modern put together. You can even create your own rockstars. I recommend this game for any of you GH fans out there, or just hungry for some cool songs while gaming.

Not Hardcore
rated 3.0 out of 5
A Ultimately Dissatisfied Customer23

Okay, I know I may not speak for everyone, but for me personally, I enjoy playing hardcore metal/rock songs on Guitar Hero. No one wants to play some weak slow songs. They want to rock out by playing a nasty solo, or dirty riffs. Include Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet for my Valentine, Metallica, Van Halen, Disturbed, Slipknot, All That Remains, etc. If Guitar Hero does that, it will be an awesome game. I just cannot stress enough about how weak Guitar Hero is continuing to make their setlists. Its annoying me. They have some good tracks on here that would be acceptable on a hardcore game. Those include "Looks That Kill" by Motley Crue, and "Sweating Bullets" by Megadeth. Those are some bands that deserve to be on a Guitar Hero, as well as the groups I mentioned earlier. Look at Guitar Hero: Van Halen. That game is FILLED with hard songs with amazing solos. Metallica a little less hard but still a good game because of the genre. Please Guitar Hero: INCLUDE MORE HARDCORE SONGS.

This is guitar hero 5!?
rated 2.0 out of 5
11 years ago

ok,this game is NOT worth your money.Not the worst ive played,but not what I expected of Guitar Hero 5.The songs are OK but there isnt much of a selection.Its annoying and repetitive.After you finnish the campaign theres NOTHING to do!Not enertaining anymore.How could they mess up Guitar Hero?!They needed better songs,and better graphics.It seems they didnt finnish this game completely,and they needed to add more to it.Overall,the game is OK,but not really what I was hoping for.You CAN buy it if you want to see,but if you want a good guitar hero,try world tour or Guitar Hero III.Come on Activision you can do better!I'm disipointed in you! 3:
