Summary: Guitar Hero 5 Mobile is one of those games that is poorly conceived from the start. It’s certainly possible to make a fun rhythm game for smart phones, but not by shoehorning in a game that’s meant to be played with a dramatically different interface.
Summary: Guitar Hero 5 is another near-perfect solo for Neversoft and Activision. There are plenty of small tweaks that ensure the game is worth a look, but ultimately, we feel the franchise is long overdue for a complete overhaul.
Pros: The new Party Play mode that lets you jump right in and play, The 85 tracks that are available right out of the box, Playing a Gorillaz track as Johnny Cash

Conclusion: Auf den ersten Blick wirkt Guitar Hero 5 wie eine stupide Fortsetzung des immergleichen Spielprinzips. Doch hat man das Spiel ersteinmal in einer größeren Runde vorgestellt, macht sich die deutlich leichtere Zugänglichkeit direkt bemerkbar.
Pros: Viele Songs, Einsteigerfreundlicher Partymodus, Animationen der Musiker, Hübsche Bühnenshow, Songimport von GH: WT und GH: GH...
Cons: ... aber leider relativ eingeschränkt, Karrieremodus bietet wenig Anreiz, n Europa liegt im Bundle die World Tour Gitarre, nicht die Neuauflage in Rot.
