Guitar Hero 5 Review (Xbox 360)


Neoseeker takes a look at the latest beast in the Guitar Hero franchise. Packing 85 songs from 83 artists, a slew of custom features and more. This is the most complete Guitar Hero title to date.

Sync issues are always a problem when it comes to these titles; thankfully Guitar Hero 5 presents a calibration page that is easy to use. Much like the tool found in Rock Band, timing visual notes and audio notes are what fix the delay, though we...

Guitar Hero 5 Review


Plug in and rock out with another guitar strumming, drum hitting music fest from Activision.

Although Guitar Hero 5 plays exactly like its predecessors, Activision more than made up for that with improved options, a stellar cast of characters, a top-notch set list and wonderful creation tools. It's hard to imagine how much longer this show...

GHWT was a joke...


Stay away from this horrible brand of products! And NO, I don't have Rock Band, Never have. I was always a GH fan, but after their last releases, which REALLY LET ME DOWN, I can't even put money into these companies ever again.


With how HORRIBLE GHWT was for PC - I can't see myself every buying another GH product. In fact, I will never buy another game from the makers of GH(this includes all the companies that went into make it for the PC) ; Horrible companies that distrubute...

I know its a PS2 and I am fine with that.


Allot more songs in this game. Fun to play thanks to some of my co-workers getting me addicted to GH

None it's on a PS2 so I cannot expect fast load times from one song to the next
