Guitar Hero On Tour

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Activision has done something the WMG never thought was possible - bring Guitar Hero to the portable. Guitar Hero On Tour is a Nintendo DS video game that is one of the strangest games the WMG has ever played. The little attachment that connects in the GBA cartridge slot has a strap to hold the players hand in place. Activision suggests the player tries to use these buttons one of two ways.

Expert Review

1 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Many of us know and love the Guitar Hero series (and its close cousin, Rock Band). That a game can provide a challenge of keeping good hand-eye coordination in time with some of the best popular songs of the last few decades is, arguably, brilliant. It's so brilliant that the Guitar Hero franchise has collected a devoted following; most people under thirty have tried it, and almost everyone has heard of it.

Colony Defense

Hooked Gamers
2 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Ultimately, Colony Defense ’s 3D mechanic feels like a gimmick. It isn’t particularly innovative or revolutionary; it just adds an unnecessary dimension to a saturated genre. As a result, the game doesn’t really provide a different experience from any other tower defense game, a fact compounded by its generic art design and bland sound.
  • Pros: Familiar fun
  • Cons: Not worth the price tag

19 January 2009
  • Excerpt: It’s almost impossible to avoid running into this hugely successful series due to the amount of advertising on television, the internet and in the gaming press. Now, thanks to the portability of the Nintendo DS, you can also play the game on the go. There’s simply no escaping it. Lucky for you then that Guitar Hero: On Tour is as good as its predecessors.

A fun music game for players on the go.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is the first version of Guitar Hero that plays on the Nintendo DS. As in the other versions, there are lyrics in some of the 25 songs that might be considered offensive because they contain sexually suggestive lyrics.

Guitar Hero: On Tour Review

VideoGamer.com
29 November 2008
  • Excerpt: Guitar Hero appears to be taking over the world - well at least the US. The series is so popular that it's moved beyond home consoles and PC to the DS. In what must rank as one of the most ambitious releases the DS has seen, Guitar Hero: On Tour attempts to bring the Guitar Hero experience to the handheld, complete with extravagant fret add-on and guitar pick.

Guitar Hero: On Tour

The Gamers Temple
21 November 2008
  • Excerpt: You have to give Vicarious Visions some credit.  Bringing the Guitar Hero experience to the portable DS was not an easy accomplishment.  The developers at Vicarious Visions' solution to the problem comes in the form of a plug-in fret controller that fits into the DS system's GameBoy cartridge port.  Innovative, yes, but not very ergonomic.  Playing more than three songs in a row will put you in imminent danger of developing chronic carpal tunnel syndrome.
