PopStar Guitar

The Gamers Temple
18 February 2009
  • Excerpt: A lot of people are going to be both very tough and extremely dismissive of Popstar Guitar, a new non-Guitar Hero/Rock Band music game exclusively for the Nintendo Wii, and at first glance, I can't say I'd disagree with those folks. After years of guitar-shaped special controllers, downloadable content, original music, master recordings and hundreds of millions of copies sold all over the world, it could be argued that Guitar Hero and Rock Band have not only found what...

Not a Guitar Hero Breaker

Consumer Electronics Net
4 December 2008
  • Excerpt: When Guitar Hero was released for the Wii, it became one of the most popular games ever. My mom bought one for me and my uncle as well and we enjoy rocking out to the greatest rock songs of all time. Other games promise to compete, including Rock Band and the latest, Popstar Guitar. PopStar Guitar (XS Games) for the Wii unfortunately does not live up to the other hits such as Rock Band and Guitar Hero.

'PopStar Guitar' (Wii)

Digital Spy
16 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Music games and plastic peripherals go together in perfect harmony. Standing there with the illusion of playing a guitar, rocking out to your favourite songs with your mates is an undeniably awesome experience, and is one of the many highlights of this console generation.

PopStar Guitar

13 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Wenn wir uns den Musikspielemarkt genauer anschauen, sehen wir eindeutig, dass Guitar Hero und Rock Band die einzigen Musikspiele sind, die sich behaupten konnten. Andere Nachahmer, wie zum Beispiel Rock Evolution fallen in Bewertungen ziemlich schlecht aus und sind auch verkaufstechnisch ein großer Flop. Jetzt bringt auch Midway ein Musikspiel à la Rock Band und Guitar Hero namens Popstar Guitar auf den Markt.

  • Excerpt: C'était écrit, Guitar Hero va encore faire des petits, malgré lui, pendant de nombreuses années. Parmi la liste de concurrents illégitimes, place à PopStar Guitar, un titre plein de culot.

PopStar Guitar - Review (Wii)

18 December 2008
  • Conclusion: PopStar Guitar wird das Genre nicht revolutionieren. Dafür wird einfach zu wenig Neues angeboten. Eigentlich machen wir nichts anderes, wie bei anderen Musikspielen auch. Das bedeutet allerdings noch lange nicht, dass das Spiel keinen Spaß macht. PopStar Guitar kann im Komplettpaket überzeugen. Dazu gehören zum einen die vielen bekannten Songs. Gerade Musikfans wird es motivieren, diese fehlerfrei nachzuspielen.

  • Conclusion: Es wurde nicht mal versucht, hier ein halbwegs spielbares Produkt in den Laden zu stellen, sondern einfach ein schlechter Klon produziert, dessen einzige Verkaufschancen darin liegen, aufgrund der Ähnlichkeit im Namen mit Guitar Hero verwechselt zu werden und vielleicht ein, zwei Fans von Miley Cyrus zu ködern.
