20 March 2015
  • Summary: As far as features go, Guitar Hero 5 seems like the best music/rhythm game yet. For casual players and GH veterans alike, there is a lot of nifty stuff in Guitar Hero 5 that makes you want to play it.

Guitar Hero 5 by Activision

  • Excerpt: There was a time, not too long ago, when I would have had to spend a lot of space at the start of this review explaining how band-based rhythm games worked. Happily, that is no longer the case. However, with that mass familiarity has come a mostly-unexpected glut in the market.
  • Pros: Upgrades to band play, party play, and general formatting are all welcome.
  • Cons: Career mode still feels listless.

  • Conclusion: The odd thing is that Guitar Hero 5 does almost everything right. The gameplay is spot on, the best I've ever seen on a rhythm game. Cooperative and competitive gameplay are great. All the little added nuances give the title a feel that we're in good hands.

  • Conclusion: The world tour downloadables can be transferred to GH 5 also. Lastly, Avatars are now playable characters and character customization is just as good if not a little better then World Tour and Metallica. Plus, if ya bought this yet you should get GH Van Halen free!!

Guitar Hero 5 (Xbox 360) Review

  • Summary: In the end, Guitar Hero 5 is nothing too new. They’ve added the Challenges on to the single player mode, but beyond that none of the other changes stick out as anything too different than the old stuff.

Review: Guitar Hero 5 (Microsoft Xbox 360)

Diehard GameFAN

  • Summary: If the rehashing of Smash Hits left a bad taste in your mouth, Guitar Hero 5 is like a fresh blast of mint that breathes a little bit of life and some much needed originality into the series.

  • Excerpt: It’s Like… …a Neversoft developed second-rate Rock Band clone with a mediocre track list enhanced with a couple of legitimately interesting new wrinkles and marred by a hideous interface and poor follow-through.

Guitar Hero 5 Review

20 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.

  • Summary: The Guitar Hero monolith marches on, undaunted by the huge number of releases in its genre over the last two years. Admittedly, most of those are other Guitar Hero games, which have done a fine job of diluting my enthusiasm for the next big release.
