Summary: The game has enough songs to get through that are interesting enough, but the calibur of the songs overall is a little dissappointing. The create your own song section leaves much to be desired, as the tunes that the guitar puts out are more like notes from a keyboard than a guitar strum. Overall, ok game, still doesn't top Guitar Hero 3.
Summary: The gameplay is great, when you finally get to it. But the time waiting for each song to load pretty much kills the party. With World Tour, they get bored between songs and often decide to do something else, like play Guitar Hero 2.
WARNING: Created for widescreen, 4:3 TVs show distorted vertically

Summary: After noticing on my standard analog TV tha only does 4:3 aspect ratio, that everything looked stretched vertically, I inquired of BudCat - the game developer why this was. They responded that this game was designed only for 16:9 aspect ratio, and the distortion on 4:3 TVs is in fact not a problem. This game was designed in 16:9 and has no option to change it to 4:3.
Good songs, great customization, but only one band per memory card.

Summary: I was a little disappointed when I got this game. There are some good songs, and there are many, but not all are that great. However, the character customization is amazing! I was able to make a character that looks just like myself, along with many others. But unfortunately, which I found out after purchase, for the PS2 you can only make 1 band per memory card.
Summary: I give this game 3 stars because I like a lot of the songs it has. I play the guitar just for fun, not for points or anything like that. Also, I'm not interested in getting the drums or the mic. What I hate the most of this game is the loading time. You can go drink water and when you are back, you'll still have time to get ready. No, I'm kidding, but it does take too much to load.
Summary: This is a fun game overall, but there is one major problem. The text. The text is in a weird font, too small, and is very hard to read. Examples: 1) When naming a song, band or something else you name, it is very hard to read what letter you are typing. 2) When singing a song, the lyrics are hard to read. This is a fun game overall, and I like the create a song feature.
Summary: This was about what I expected. There's a reason they didn't call it 'Guitar Hero IV', because there is so much less guitar soloing going on in the selected playlist. Might be more fun if I knew a singer.
Summary: This is just an *ok* game. we arent very impressed by it. We were more impressed with GH3. We rented this game before we bought it. And very glad we did as it is not worth the $50 for game only. This game seems to center around a band. Now that is fine and im sure very fun but what about those people who just want to play the game by themselves? And we have seen many comments on that here. Hopefully the next one (if there is one) will be better.
Lost and Forgotten Are the Traditional Guitar Hero Fans

Summary: OK, so this is a review of the game-only Guitar Hero: World Tour Playstation II game. If you're here looking to get information and feedback on the bundle version or to hear about online play, you're on the wrong product page. This review is for those traditional Guitar Hero fans. The fans who... 1: Thought the price of a full set (nearly $200) is a little steep. 2: Play casually. 3: Do not necessarily own a next generation console (Xbox360, PSXIII).
