Guitar Hero Review

1 May 2007
  • Excerpt: You will come to Guitar Hero with preconceptions. It's inevitable. You'll wander whether you should fork out the extra cash for a game and a guitar peripheral - something which will probably just get pulled out at parties and the like. Well, stop that madness right now. You need this game.

Guitar Hero – Review

18 March 2007
  • Excerpt: I don't usually like music games. They don't do much for me. I don't like singing along doing karaoke, I don't like sweating and stepping on arrows in Dance Dance Revolution, and I don't like anything that uses bongos… but I like Guitar Hero . Why do I like Guitar Hero when so many other audio-based games leave me cold? In this case, it's all about the controller.

Addictive rock 'n' roll party for tweens and up.

Common Sense Media
7 March 2007
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this rhythm game plays the rock 'n' roll scene for fun, but the lyrical content still includes some mild references to drugs and sex (though these cover versions omit the rare cursing present in the originals). The imagery of the game is likewise invested in a silly version of sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll, and presents some drawings of smoking and bottles of alcohol.

Guitar Hero

Playstation Illustrated
3 March 2007
  • Excerpt: C'mon, I know you do it, I've seen you -- each and every one of you. You don't think anyone is watching and think that your secret is safely hidden, but it's not. Every single one of you has done it at least once, whether you admit it or not. Just come out and say it, you like to air guitar to songs on the radio. At any given time on any day, you can look into a nearby car and see someone strumming the air in front of them as their favorite song plays on the radio.

Guitar Hero

4 February 2007
  • Summary: Given Activision's love of releasing ten billion Guitar Hero games a month, it's somewhat surprising that the evil publisher has taken so long to wrap its tendrils around iTunes. Titles like Tap Tap Revenge have already demonstrated a healthy portable music game market, while rivals such as Rock Band and Guitar Rock Tour have already settled into the market. Still, better late than never.

Guitar Hero

The Gamers Temple
6 January 2007
  • Excerpt: Last night I stayed up half the night rocking out, crawled into bed with aching fingers, slept through my alarm, and shuffled off to work as guitar riffs played endlessly through my head. Thanks to Guitar Hero I had become a rock and roll star. Well, minus the groupies and hangover that is.

Expert Review

20 March 2006
  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: This reviewer has been waiting years for Guitar Hero, and the fact that is hasn't disappointed even the slightest bit is perhaps a greater indication of its brilliance than any other.
