Excerpt: The Guitar Hero franchise has become a household name and a mega-hit for Activision. Guitar Hero games have been around since November 2005 and the franchise is not showing any signs of slowing down. The franchise is also on solid ground with Wii gamers as the series has been a mainstay on the Wii for the past couple of years. So it comes as no surprise we now have a greatest hits version called Guitar Hero: Smash Hits for the Wii.
Conclusion: Guitar Hero: Smash Hits looks like it's shaping up to be a highly polished, must-have addition to the Guitar Hero family. If you're a long-time Guitar Hero fan and are worried about purchasing songs you already own, there is definitely going to be enough new here, i.e. 100% master recordings, tweaked note tracks, and full band support, to make purchasing the game a no-brainer.
