Guitar Hero: On Tour Decades (DS)


A few months ago, Activision did the seemingly impossible and brought Guitar Hero to the Nintendo DS. With its unique Guitar Grip peripheral and touch-screen strumming, Guitar Hero: On Tour was a competent representation of the fretting and picking...

Guitar Hero: On Tour (DS)


Guitar Hero has made the rounds, appearing on all of the current consoles. However, the series' use of licensed music and reliance on large plastic guitars made it seem like you'd never be able party like a rock star on a handheld--especially the...

Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits


Keep on rockin' on the handheld. Three Guitar Hero games in less than twelve months; that is amazing when you sit back and think about it. What is more amazing...

Solid song list ; New features spice it up ; Controls feel refined

Doesn't work on DSi ; Not quite a leap forward

Guitar Hero On Tour Decades


Guitar Hero On Tour Decades is the follow-up to the very popular Nintendo DS title Guitar Hero On Tour.  Despite the limitations of the Nintendo DS, Activision was able to squeeze the fun and excitement of Guitar Hero into a handheld device that...

  Real Life Ratings Guitar Hero On Tour Decades is a title that practically any age can enjoy without worry of blood, violence, or any negative content. Saying that, you may find that some songs have questionable lyrics that some may find slightly...

Game Review: Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits


You know what's funny? I did a bit of digging around before I got down to writing my review and realized that the DS version of Guitar Hero has seen its third offering in about a years time. So you know it's been selling relatively well to merit a...

Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits


It's hard to believe that it has only been twelve months since Activision first introduced the world to Guitar Hero: On Tour. At the time of its release I was skeptical; disappointed by the crummy selections of songs and in pain from the way the weird...

Has Activision been able to right all of their wrongs with the Guitar Hero: On Tour franchise? Have they been able to make this Nintendo DS game feel like you're actually playing a real guitar? Have they given you a compelling reason to own this game?...

Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits R..


Hey it's more Guitar Hero on the DS!

The new tracklist brings a nice amount of modern music to the handheld versions of Guitar Hero

Three DS Guitar Hero games in less than a year? And you can't play it if you own a DSi

Basically, Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits is like any other Guitar Hero sequel that doesn't drastically change the gameplay experience. If you like the track list, or have friends you want to play multiplayer with, then get the game. If you don't...

Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits


Warning: this game will literally rock your wrist off.

All songs are unlocked in Quickplay from the start ; Guitar Pick Stylus makes strumming easier ; May introduce you to some new music that is enjoyable to listen to as well as play ; Can skip songs you don't like in Career mode

Have to replay songs to beat venues ; Highly uncomfortable controls force you to stop gameplay even when you don't want to ; Star Power is tricky to activate

Yay! First review by fiancee!

Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits Nintendo DS Review


That's because Modern Hits follows the same blueprint as previous releases in the On Tour series. The graphics look similar, with multicolored notes in the foreground and performers stiffly playing instruments in the background. The interface is also...

Still fun to play, a decent variety of songs to choose from, Fan Requests will keep you busy, multiplayer sharing still works

Some poorly chosen songs, same presentation from previous games, guitar grip becomes uncomfortable over time, not compatible with the new DSi system

Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits has over 25 new songs, along with a new Fan Request feature that'll put your guitar-playing skills to the test. Although Activision puts on a good show, we've seen it all before.

Now With A Better Soundtrack

It sucks that both Guitar Heroes for DS will be incompatible with the upcoming DSi system due to the lack of the GBA Slot, so be sure to play these games now on your DS Lite. Activision has even started to bundle both games together, with one fret...
