Guitar Hero Smash Hits

The Gamers Temple
13 July 2009
  • Excerpt: With the release of Guitar Hero World Tour last year, the Guitar Hero franchise went beyond the guitar, adding support for drums and vocals. However, there was a large catalog of great songs that appeared in previous Guitar Hero games that didn't get the chance to get the whole band treatment, not to even mention the fact that the PS3 didn't even get a Guitar Hero game until Guitar Hero 3.

Guitar Hero: Smash Hits

Playstation Illustrated
5 July 2009
  • Excerpt: Guitar Hero: Smash Hits brings everything Guitar Hero together, from the storyline to the features to the songs. The story, this time around, has a very Mortal Kombat or Twisted Metal feel to it, with the very best from around the world being lured to a worldwide competition to prove who is the best, only, in Guitar Hero: Smash Hits , it's a competition for rockin', not fighting or blowing up cars.

  • Conclusion: Guitar Hero Smash Hits isn't a bad idea, but the execution is less than perfect, with strange sound mixes and no possible DLC. Given that this is the third of five Guitar Hero products to be released in 2009, making it feel like nothing but a cash grab. While it may be fun to revisit some of these old tunes, it's certainly not worth buying in to Activision's lack of respect for what was once a great game series.

  • Conclusion: Guitar Hero: Smash Hits is not a new game. It's old stuff with new bits . Determining if it's actually worth the asking price comes down to a formula: master tracks + full band - new notes/gimmicks + online play - weird sound = your call.

  • Excerpt: You guys should know that I'm a sucker for compilations. While I'm not that guy who buys all of those compilation discs off of those terrible infomercials, I do enjoy videogame compilations such as this one. Guitar Hero: Smash Hits is the very best of the series ranging from Guitar Hero I, II, III, Encore: Rocks the 80s, and even a track from Aerosmith! There is a total of 48 tracks, most of which are widely accepted to be fan favorites.
