Guitar Hero: World Tour

Strategy Informer

  • Conclusion: Guitar Hero World Tour doesn’t blow Rock Band out of the water. It does, however, hold its ground against the current leader in music games and introduces a wide array of new features. Anyone interested in music games owes it to themselves to at least try World Tour, if not picking up a copy with its better hardware.

Guitar Hero World Tour Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Multiplayer will continue to be a strong part of the game, with the ability to have four players in a band on the same system or online. And there’s the competitive side of it, with online opening up your options even more: You can go head to head against another player or take a whole band against another band. The Career can also be played online with others in your band, which is a great way to hit some of those elusive or band-oriented achievements.

Let’s see how everything actually stacks up.

True achievements
14 May 2009
  • Conclusion: FINALLY. Achievements: 8/10 GH:WT is a great game, fun for all ages, for vets or families, but when playing through it you can't help but feel like it's the exoskeleton of a bigger better game which could have been released. Just a little more polish on the boot would have gone a long way. Overall: 8.5/10 or rounded down to 4 stars.

Square-Go
8 May 2009
  • Excerpt: Rock Band took guitar simulation games one step further by bringing drums and vocals along for the ride. So far, the game has shifted an unprecedented amount of units worldwide and several million song downloads. Guitar Hero: World Tour takes this format, adds the surreal veneer the series is known for, and truly reclaims its place as the best the genre has to offer.

Expert Review

Inside Hotwire 3D
21 April 2009
  • Conclusion: Guitar Hero: World Tour delivers one of the best rhythmic ensembles in the gaming business. The guitar instrument works great and the addition of a drum set completes the whole concert experience. With over 80 original songs, there is enough music to satisfy every inspiring rock star. Given enough living room space, World Tour is just an MTV party waiting to happen. Thanks to downloadable content, your encore performances will keep the gameplay on the edge.

Guitar Hero World Tour

360Evolved
24 January 2009
  • Conclusion: Overall, Guitar Hero World Tour is every bit as enjoyable and good as the competition. The new guitar has a great feel to it and features the slide strip that is fun to play around with. The drums are very nice looking and worked great during review. The microphone included worked great as well, and actually feels like a real high quality mic not having that “flimsy” look and feel to it.
  • Pros: The new guitar is bigger and looks/works great. You can download user created content due to the new music studio. The drums look real nice and also work great. It’s great to finally have a full-band supported Guitar Hero. Downloadable content is finally available by a track pack and singles. The boss battles are alot better this ti
  • Cons: Some of the songs on disc we already played on the other music-based game not very long ago. It’s going to take a while for the music store to build up alot of content. The drum’s bass pedal slid around on me during gameplay. The music studio will demand alot of patience and time.
