Excerpt: There's a war going on out there, and it's being fought with wireless battery-operated guitars: it's a battle for the hearts of wannabe rock stars. Earlier this year Harmonix's Rock Band took the upper hand, surpassing the Guitar Hero series with some sleek and sexy presentation, a more forgiving learning curve and a killer set of peripherals.
Excerpt: Guitar Hero World Tour is Activision’s attempt to counter the changes that Rock Band brought to the music genre. Instead of only including guitar and bass gameplay, players will now be able to form a complete band and sing, play drums, rock out on guitar, and strum away on the bass. To further distinguish themselves from the competition, Developer Neversoft has updated the visuals, added a touch sensor to the bottom of the fret bar, on the guitar, and created their own...
Conclusion: Guitar Hero World Tour is a huge leap forward for the Guitar Hero franchise. It's a blast to play with friends, the setlist is top-notch, and the music studio is a nice--albeit extremely complicated--addition. Although it's a great game, as well as a vast improvement over previous series entries, it doesn't do a whole lot that Rock Band and its sequel haven't already done (and in some cases, done better).
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.
Cons: Some new additions don't enhance experience, Doesn't do much that other, similar games haven't done.
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. The result is a very entertaining game that doesn't break a whole lot of new ground.
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
Cons: Some new additions don't enhance experience, Doesn't do much that other, similar games haven't done
Summary: As a game on it's own to be used with your existing equipment World Tour offers plenty of new features and a robust track list but when paired with it's new guitars and drum kit it becomes much more. I was sold the very first time I played the drums and that alone is worth the price of admission for me. Guitar Hero is back at the top of my list and I'm a very happy rock bunny.
Conclusion: A játék tipikusan a házibulik kellékévé válhatna kis hazánkban, ha nem lenne ennyire drága. Valószínűleg kevesen engedhetik meg maguknak, hogy egy nextgen konzol árát elköltsék egyetlen játékra. Ha vannak vállalkozó kedvű ismerőseink, akkor ez az ár ugyan elnegyedelhető, de sajnos a szettben csak egyetlen gitár van, így a teljes banda létrehozásához még egy ilyen hangszert kell beszerezni, amivel a Guitar Hero World Tour ára elérheti a nyolcvanezer forintot.
Pros: közösségi élményhangszerekkoncerthangulat
Cons: sok helyet foglalméregdrágacsak egy gitár van a szettben
