Guitar Hero 5

 

Its additions and refinements make it the sharpest full-band game from Activision to date.

Great new features ; Import songs from past games ; Wide-ranging set list

GH Music Studio and Mii Freestyle are lame

IIRC IGN was raving a lot about Roadie Battle.

In the scant four years since Harmonix and Redoctane's quirky, experimental Guitar Hero showed up in the bowels of E3's Kentia Hall, the franchise has exploded in popularity. Changed hands from its original creators and now in an annual struggle to...

After a rough start as a full band game Guitar Hero has found its sweet spot. It ditches gimmicks in favor of accessibility and refinement,and the Wii version adds some great features that make GH5 a must buy on the platform. The DLC could use some...

No sign of 'difficult eleventh album' syndrome...

83 artists, 85 songs ; Precision notechart placements ; Party features raise the bar

Looks aren't anything to sing about ; Track list isn't perfect ; Some may be offended by digital Kurt Cobain

Guitar Hero 5 is the perfect excuse to stock up on some lithium batteries, invite your friends back around and deadbolt the door. You'll be hooked by song 2.

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...

The latest iteration of that other music game smoothes things out for the fans.

Finally, there’s a lot to be said for respect. A new version of Public Enemy's “Bring The Noise” with fucking Zakk Wylde is one thing, but creating digital avatars of players like Johnny Cash and Kurt Cobain has always been questionable. Allowing...

If you own a Wii, you should own this game. Pure and simple.

Guitar Hero 5 on Wii isn’t a must-own game because of one standout feature or option; it’s the total package through and through. True, some gamers – myself included, to a certain extent – are getting tired of the GH formula after three years and an...

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...

There are some interesting console specific features for those of you that plan to play the game on the Wii or the Xbox 360. The Xbox 360 version will let you play any mode in the game using your Xbox avatar. The Wii will allow similar functionality...

Guitar Hero 5 review

 

I remember the good ol' days of the Guitar Hero franchise. There were only a few and were certainly only released once a year. I remember the insane amount of anticipation over Guitar Hero 3, even 6 months before release. Now, it's 2009, and this year,...

Overall, Guitar Hero 5 is really just another notch up in the rhythm genre that has developed in the last few years. Has the constant flooding of rhythm titles killed off a bit of the luster? Possibly, but maybe if a franchise doesn't come out with...
