Guitar Hero 5


At this point, I have lost count. The Guitar Hero franchise has certainly had its fair share of criticism. Ever since Activision took over the series some gamers have accused...

Ease of play ; Streamlined interface ; Diverse song list ; Party Play

Importing woes ; Songs not for everyone

Five Alive


Guitar Hero 5 proves there's still a little juice left in the old formula, but it's just about tapped out.

It sounds like a small change, but it's incredibly important to keeping up the flow of progression, and at least for me, "I won't let this game beat me" mode kicked in and I'd often just retry things ten times until I could pass the songs anyway....

Guitar Hero 5 Review for the PS3


Filler album.

Easier navigation; Improved graphics

Not enough innovation; No tutorials for GHStudio

Guitar Hero 5


There is no denying that the past year has been overrun with the music genre, which is starting to suffocate our poor helpless consoles. There have been no less than 10?Guitar Hero titles alone, 4 of which are from this year, and things get continually...

Guitar Hero has started to become somewhat stale in recent installments, but this fifth version prsents a refreshing take on the music genre, with its abundance of party play options and all round accessibility.

Guitar Hero 5


Those who see Guitar Hero 5 as the fifth instalment of the seminal rhythm-action series are sorely mistaken: the grand total of titles brandishing the name, including full games, expansions, portable versions and future titles, exceeds the ten mark. In...

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


Wide-ranging improvements and an excellent new Party Play mode make Guitar Hero 5 a great way to bring some rock into your living room.

Party Play mode is superbly social ; All songs available right from the get-go ; Improved visuals ; Music studio is much more accessible

Lackluster song import feature ; Vocalists need controller to activate star power

Guitar Hero 5


Here we go again…

Party-tastic Jukebox mode ; Song-specific challenges ; Competitive RockFest mode

Some lame guest stars ; DLC is pricey ; No songs from The Beatles

Strutting around the stage would be boring if there weren’t some killer new songs to rock to. Thankfully, the track list features some incredibly strong songs from stars such as Nirvana and T.Rex to Elton John, Dire Straits and Queen. There’s genuinely...
