Guitar Hero 5 Review

VideoGamer.com
23 November 2009
  • Excerpt: It's hard to believe that we've seen so many Guitar Hero games released over the past few years, and it would be easy to assume that the latest, the stunningly named Guitar Hero 5, is just another slight variation on the previous entries. In some ways that's true - you're not getting a radically different game here - but developer Neversoft hasn't simply got together 85 songs and thrown them into World Tour.

Fresh, fun music game sequel with edgy lyrics.

Common Sense Media
19 November 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this music simulation game has a "Teen" rating  mainly because of some off-color lyrics in a few of the 85 songs. This includes some sexual themes, references to drinking, smoking, and violence, and use of some swear words. One of the TV commercials for the game includes Playboy bunnies prancing around Hugh Hefner.

Guitar Hero 5

Game Boyz
23 October 2009
  • Excerpt: When Guitar Hero: World Tour for the Wii burst onto the scene last year, many Wii gamers embraced the ability to play as if they were in a real live band. With drums, a mic and the staple GH Guitar, World Tour made for a perfect party game and sales figures certainly reflected the popularity of such.

  • Summary: In the scant four years since Harmonix and Redoctane’s quirky, experimental Guitar Hero showed up in the bowels of E3’s Kentia Hall, the franchise has exploded in popularity. Changed hands from its original creators and now in an annual struggle to outdo Harmonix’ graduating effort, Rock Band, Guitar Hero is currently developed by Neversoft on PS3 and 360 and by Vicarious Visions for Wii.

Guitar Hero 5 Review

UGO
8 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Compared to World Tour , Guitar Hero 5 blows the doors off Guitar Hero's short history of full band outings. The onscreen band models look excellent and the animations, especially the singers, are unique to the point, it made me wonder if Neversoft programmed each singer individually for each song.
  • Pros: you hate The Beatles with all your heart, you like at least half of the tracklist, importing songs and DLC from World Tour aren't an issue for you
  • Cons: you’ve pre-ordered The Beatles Rock Band , you got tired of the rhythm genre 3 years ago, kurt Cobain in a video-game makes your flannel and holey jeans wither and your dirty skin crawl
