Excerpt: The Guitar Hero franchise has become a household name and a mega-hit for Activision. I was a little late to the party as I never caught Guitar Hero mania until I played the third instalment of the franchise.
Summary: Parents need to know that this is a sequel in the mega-popular Guitar Hero series. Some of the lyrics might raise an eyebrow as being sexually suggestive. Also, some of the female musicians that aren't wearing much clothes onstage.
Summary: As soon as Rock Band let you play guitar, bass, drums, and sing to your favorite music, it was clear the bar had been raised in the music-game genre. It wasn't long before Activision announced that the Guitar Hero series would follow suit.
Pros: Great setlist with more than 80 songs, You can now sing and play bass, guitar, drums, Lets you create, share, and download original music, Mii Freestyle mode is kind of fun
Cons: Some new additions don't enhance experience, Doesn't do much that other, similar games haven't done, Requires four instruments and four Wii Remotes for a full band
Excerpt: Title: Guitar Hero: World Tour Format: Wii Price: RRP £39.99 - £149.99 Wi-Fi: YES Players: 4 Guitar Hero has swiftly become a household name with each new game racking up tons of sales with each release.
Excerpt: As much as we loathe Activision driving the Guitar Hero franchise into the ground (air guitar belt buckles! Stupid plastic figurines! Band-focused updates!), you've got to admire the effort it puts into the 'main' sequels.
Summary: "I wish that I could play guitar," little Timmy thought to himself one day. "Oh but you can," the God of Rock replied, and came forth from his perch atop Mount Olympus to give Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock to the world.
Conclusion: Guitar Hero World Tour rockt! Zwar ist die Grafik auf der Wii-Version verständlicherweise ein wenig abgespeckt und explodiert nicht gerade mit Effekten, doch man hat eh keine Zeit, sich auf solche Kleinigkeiten zu konzentrieren.
Pros: Slide-Bar..., coole und abwechslungsreiche Songliste, umfangreicher Songcreator..., Download-Content (auch für Wii), Freestyle-Modus (Wii only), Band gegen Band-Modus, Charakter-Editor, gute Verarbeitung der Instrumente
Cons: ...die aber spielerisch keine Bedeutung hat, Wii-Grafik etwas detailarm, ...der sehr viel Einarbeitungszeit benötigt, weitaus geringere Songauswahl als bei Rock Band
