Guitar Hero 5

 

I've been a little disappointed with the Guitar Hero series since GH2.  Difficulty, added nonsense, and a perceived sense of its own importance combined to make the games less fun.  So when Guitar Hero 5 showed up, I wasn't expecting much.  I'm happy...

Drop-in/Drop-out play ; Multiple same-instruments in the same song ; Song-specific challenges

Song selection ; Is anyone clamoring for more celebrity cameos in these games

There aren't many surprises here, but there are some nice new features that make it worth looking at.

Does the newest iteration of the franchise rock or fall flatter than an silent note? Find out inside!

In the end, Guitar Hero 5 is nothing too new. They've added the Challenges on to the single player mode, but beyond that none of the other changes stick out as anything too different than the old stuff. However, the old Guitar Hero formula is still a...

Publisher Activison / Red Octane and developer Neversoft have released the latest in the Guitar Hero series - Guitar Hero 5. While it seems like the 13th release in the Guitar Hero series, the first question that come to mind is: is Guitar Hero 5 just...

New features allow for better game experience, care Mode challenges help when playing the same songs over again, veterans and newbies can play together without alienating either group

We play Guitar Hero 5 and may have found the best rhythm game to date. But is it worth the hype? (Xbox 360)

The Guitar Hero games have been a slowly-evolving bunch. Back when Neversoft was first handed the reigns with Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, I said that Neversoft made “slight tweaks to enhance the experience.” Aerosmith may have been stagnant in...

Variety meets simplicity...

Guitar Hero 5 is a true testament to a group of developers satisfying critics, fans, and newcomers to a series of games. They've taken a format, stripped away any annoying features that take away from the gameplay's flow, and created enough subtle...

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.

Yeah, boyeeee.

Controls and interface received a MUCH needed upgrade

The song list is REALLY hit or miss. Kurt Cobain, Santana, and Johnny Cash…yikes

Review: Guitar Hero 5 for Xbox 360

 

Since taking over the Guitar Hero franchise in 2007, Neversoft has undoubtedly put its own unique stamp on the rhythm sensation. But though core entries Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock and Guitar Hero World Tour sold immensely well at retail, the...
