Summary: The Guitar Hero series has generally steered well of cash-in efforts, even if their Rock the 80s game was too lean for the £30 asking price. However, the Greatest Hits game doesn't offer a lot for hardcore Guitar Hero fans and is for the most part offering a service that Harmonix should allow players anyway: the ability to import songs from the previous Guitar Hero games onto their current-gen console.
Excerpt: Guitar Hero: Greatest Hits As it says in the title, i think you could probably guess that its on the surface a replica of the old titles with different guns. Bit of dissapointment but does it matter, I've only been buying every new game of the franchise for about a year but is this game any different?
Pros: Great Songs and weeks of fun if your a completionist
Conclusion: Why do people need this many Guitar Hero games? Don't get me wrong, I think it's bags of fun, seriously though; is there any point in making this many installments? I think it was fair to make a Metallica version, but now Van Halen! Everywhere you look, there's a new Guitar Hero game or Rock Band game being released. And now all this talk about a game called Band Hero!!! No doubt going to be exactly the same.
Conclusion: So a rehash of playlists I already have. Come on XBox. get your act together. Give the people who pay your wages what they want. How about some new songs. Its the same with the game "Lips". Hardly any new songs each month. I love my Xbox but Playstation 3 starting to look like a better option. Singstar has much better songs. Save my money for something better !!!
Conclusion: i have been a big fan of the game's since day one! playing Cow boys from hell on expert for the first time on GH1 i will never forget! But now i just feel like all the hours of practicing (sad i no) was just a waste time and effort. They have made the songs so so so easy now! good for new players but not to old school fans! the only good thing is playing most off the good song in HD?! so buy it for a party game not a guitar game!
Conclusion: OK- Activision have put some of the best tracks from the orignial guitar heros as a band.- the tracks are excellent all complete master tracks so you dont have queen sounding like McFly! The only downside to this game is that the gameplay isn't exactly hard and the game is over within an hour- but justifying this is the fact that you can play through the fire and flames or rock and roll all night on drums which to me is awesome.
Conclusion: all the best songs from guitar hero 1, guitar hero 2, guitar hero 3, guitar hero rock the 80's, and 1 from aerosmith. now made better with full band play, nice neat display my only problems with it is, some songs they didnt put in that i thought should have, like knights of cydonia, and paint it black
Conclusion: Ive read a billon reviews on guitar hero games and ive played the hell out of No# 3, Aerosmith, world Tour & Metallica so when it comes to thease titles im definately experienced. Although I know most of you think "ive played thease songs before, why is it worth me buying this title?" heres the answer: How many of you have sat there while 2 of your friends have tried to get through songs and felt like you have been left on the sidelines?
Conclusion: Good game, If your a real fan of guitar hero/rock band you will have noitced that guitar hero never seems to make any songs exportable. If you look at rock band 1 every song is exportable on to rock band 2 for 400 points (inlcuding dlc *downloadable conent)! We have to pay 39.99 for 48 songs of what appears to be the "greatest hits" from other guitar hero games?
