Excerpt: It is fabulous to find something on clearance. It is even better when it is between one dollar and two dollars. That is precisely what I found Tron Evolution for at a local retailer. Part of my brain said: “this game will suck if it sells for that low.” Another part of my grey matter said: “give it a shot it might be worth it.” Like many video games out there, Tron Evolution has good and bad.
Excerpt: I have been into music for a very long time. In fact I written a few praise and worship hymns to God. I did not expect any glorifying God in Guitar Hero On Tour Decades, even though it would be a great idea for a video game. What shocked me was the control scheme. This DS game does not feel like playing a guitar. The home console versions of Guitar Hero do feel like playing a guitar. So the translation from home console to hand held got a little lost in translation.
Excerpt: The Guitar Hero franchise has become a household name and a mega-hit for Activision and Red Octane. It has not only been a mainstay on next-generation platforms but it is now firmly entrenched on the Nintendo DS as well. Guitar Hero: On Tour was the first time the franchise had made its way to the DS and it did so with a big splash. The killer set list and the ability to play Guitar Hero on the go made it a must have for DS owners and Guitar Hero fans alike.
The Second DS Installment of Guitar Hero DS Suffers the Same Problems

Excerpt: As the second Guitar Hero DS title released in less than six months, you might expect that Decades is fairly similar to the original On Tour. Mostly, you'd be right. However, Vicarious Visions deserves praise for improving this game in a couple of areas. Firstly, the soundtrack is much more appealing to fans of the ''big boy'' version, featuring some dynamic rock songs new and old.
Excerpt: Guitar Hero On Tour: Decades is the second Guitar Hero game to appear on the DS, and in many ways it is indistinguishable from the first. Unfortunately, one of the ways it remains indistinguishable is in the ergonomic issues caused by the game's control scheme. The fret button controller that plugs into the DS' GBA port is in many ways a very innovative way to simulate the Guitar Hero experience on a portable system.
Excerpt: We weren't huge fans of Guitar Hero: On Tour, the DS debut for the hugely successful Guitar Hero series. It was a novel idea, and something we didn't imagine would ever appear on the DS, but it was plagued with control issues and tinny music. On Tour Decades is the follow-up, delivering 28 tracks from the 70s, 80s, 90s and the modern era, some unique multiplayer track sharing, and sadly the very same control issues.
