Guitar Hero 5

Playstation Illustrated
27 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Guitar Hero is back again, with Guitar Hero 5 . The graphics are better than ever and the Character Creator seems to allow more customization than ever before. When you start tweaking things such as eyes and nose, you'll find a wide variety of adjustments that can be made. In addition to custom-created characters, the old familar characters from earlier Guitar Hero games are all here to be chosen from.

Guitar Hero 5

The Gamers Temple
4 February 2010
  • Excerpt: With the Guitar Hero series' return to numbered titles, you'd think that Guitar Hero 5 would be a big step up from its predecessor, Guitar Hero World Tour. In reality, Guitar Hero 5 is an evolutionary refinement of World Tour, leaving the core gameplay intact and adding a number of features that probably should have been a part of World Tour.

  • Conclusion: I never really thought the series could bounce back to the height of its greatness, but Guitar Hero 5 is as good as the current formula is going to get. Rife with variety and bursting with multiplayer options, this is the GH game to get.

Guitar Hero 5

Hardcore Gamer
30 September 2009
  • Summary: Let’s face it. Everybody has played Guitar Hero . What started off as one of the early games of the post-DDR wave has become a worldwide phenomenon. Not only do gamers play the series, but grade school kids and even older parents have answered the call of the plastic guitar. If you’ve ever played a Guitar Hero game and liked it, basically just take scroll down the page, see the score, and buy the game. This is one of the best Guitar Hero titles ever.

Guitar Hero 5 Review

ME Gamers
25 September 2009
  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is We honestly cannot remember the last time we asked our local gaming shop ”what’s new” without getting an answer that has something to do with Guitar Hero. A new sequel, new instrument, portable instruments, a band based Guitar Hero. The list just goes on and on. Even the biggest fans of the series lost track, with some confused about the true identity of the series. Whatever Activision did introducing GH5 somehow worked.

Rockin' For Everyone

21 September 2009
  • Excerpt: The latest edition to the Guitar Hero family is the best one to date. Too many times friends at my house called "shotgun" on certain instruments, other then the microphone, which I was always handed. On a side note, I sang with a different mic this time. I used a 3.5 to 2.5 adapter and plugged in my iPhone headset to a controller to belt out the songs. I gave it a try after my double A batteries died in my wireless mic and I couldn't find new ones readily available.

Expert Review

PSX Extreme
8 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Maybe you have or haven't realized this, but Activision's Hero games are assaulting the industry, as there seems to be one released every single month. In March it was Metallica, in June it was Smash Hits, for September it's Guitar Hero 5, for October it's DJ Hero, for November it's Band Hero, and for December it's Guitar Hero: Van Halen. That's downright insane.

Guitar Hero 5

1 September 2009
  • Excerpt: With so many music games coming out within a few months of each other, it’s a good time to be a gamer, especially with the competition between Rock Band and Guitar Hero heating up. With that said, Activision continues its Guitar Hero juggernaut with their latest addition to the franchise, Guitar Hero 5 that goes head to head with The Beatles: Rock Band but will it remain victorious?
