Guitar Hero: Smash Hits


We all knew it was bound to happen eventually. Guitar Hero: Smash hits is kind of like the album AC/DC Live. Bear with me on this one for a moment....

Great list of songs ; Career structure improved ; Playing old songs in full band

Should be able to import ; Been there, done that feeling

Guitar Hero Smash Hits Review


Guitar Hero Smash Hits takes some of the most famous and infamous songs from Guitar Hero, Guitar Hero II, Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s, Guitar Hero III: Legends of ...

Everything works well and as expected in Guitar Hero Smash Hits, but if you already own the previous Guitar Hero games that feature the songs then you may want to pass on purchasing this game. If you never got into play Guitar Hero until Guitar Hero...

Guitar Hero: Smash Hits


Not much has changed over the course of these last few Guitar Hero releases. In the case of Guitar Hero: Smash Hits, Neversoft continues to improve upon its formula refining and tweaking little details here and there to make the Guitar Hero experience...

Guitar Hero: Smash Hits


Take a trip down memory lane in the latest Guitar Hero track pack.

Great, varied set list ; Master tracks for every song

Redone guitar charts might be off-putting for longtime fans ; No downloadable content ; Songs not transferable to World Tour

Have you looked at the track packs? The only one that was geared with a decent theme was the Country one. Classic Rock was any sort of rock from the 90's and before it, with no solid genre, and the other two are essentially random packs of songs,...

Guitar Hero Smash Hits


Activision misses with Guitar Hero Smash Hits, giving us the best of what we already had.

After Guitar Hero Metallica, one of our favorite music games released to date, it seemed like developer Neversoft was on top of the world. What happened may have something to do with Beenox, a different Activision development team taking charge here,...

Guitar Hero - Smash Hits


Do you love Guitar Hero, Guitar Hero II, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, and Guitar Hero Encore: Rock The 80s?  Of course you do. Why wouldn't you? These games freaking rock! Activision has stepped up their A game to bring you...

Guitar Hero: Smash Hits Review


In the long-running line of Guitar Hero games that get released, it's easy to start seeing them as the same game with a different track list. After all, the two releases this month make a total of six Guitar Hero games released on major console...

So while we wait for GH5 and The Beatles to hit this September and we continue to buy tracks for the major two games released last year, it may be tempting to pop down to the store to pick up Smash Hits - but I highly recommend you drop by Wikipedia to...

Guitar Hero: Smash Hits


The series that revitalized music games releases a greatest hits album

All master recordings ; Full parts for all instruments ; Relocated meters

You might have played these before ; Next-gen versions cost more ; Entire tracklist might not appeal to you

Sound good? Then you’ll be in heaven with this new pack, especially if you bought Guitar Hero Metallica and have the dual bass pedals going. If these seem a little tired to you or you don't want to pay for the whole collection, maybe just hold off and...

Guitar Hero Smash Hits


New note charts and master tracks are a nice addition, but this doesn't feel like a full price experience.

Still, the game doesn't emit content that you'll find in other Guitar Hero titles. All the multiplayer aspects are still here, battle, band etc., and you can play through the game with solo careers using all the instruments, or do a band career mode as...

Guitar Hero Smash Hits


The Game: For those of you not in the know, the Guitar Hero series actually started on the PS2. The series has been available on next gen consoles since Guitar Hero II, so it's easy to forget, but to date, Guitar Hero and Rock The 80's were PS2...

The Conclusion: Guitar Hero Smash Hits isn't a bad idea, but the execution is less than perfect, with strange sound mixes and no possible DLC. Given that this is the third of five Guitar Hero products to be released in 2009, making it feel like nothing...
