Wii Sports Resort


\r\n Given that it\'s the sequel to the game that defined the Wii experience for most people, and  its packed-in with the WiiMotion Plus attachment, Wii Sports Resort could be the best-selling game of 2009. In many ways, this is more than just a...

Guitar Hero: Smash Hits (Xbox 360) Review


Ready To Rock or Already Rocked? Check out the review to see if these Guitar Hero greatest hits are worth the encore!

You'll fall into one of three categories when it comes to Guitar Hero: Smash Hits. You either haven't played these songs yet and want to OR you've played them before and don't see the need to play them again OR you love greatest hits compilations and...

Guitar Hero Smash Hits


It's easy to be cynical about a game like Guitar Hero: Smash Hits. By design this package contains no new licensed music and adds nothing to the standard Guitar Hero formula. It's a full-price game that features half the songs of either Guitar Hero...

One could certainly argue that Guitar Hero: Smash Hits is nothing more than a glorified expansion pack. But there's definitely enough content in this game to warrant a look, even if you already own these songs in older Guitar Hero games. I just wish...

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 Review


Activision's shameless cash-in features an impressive soundtrack of music we already played.

That said, Smash Hits plays exactly like its predecessors, with multicolored notes streaming towards the bottom of screen and players frantically hitting fret buttons on plastic guitars/wailing on drums/screaming into the microphone to achieve high...

Guitar Hero Smash Hits Review (Xbox 360)


The music-game category has been one of the fastest-growing genres in the industry over the past few years. However, there's been a lot of dissension among players that, while they still enjoy music games, the publishers who have been doing the most in...

is a great experience with lots of options for how you play these 48 classic songs…but the problem is that it doesn’t feel fresh. It’s more like a coat of paint over wooden boards that are starting to show some wear, even through the fresh paint

Guitar Hero: Smash Hits


REVIEW: Another reunion tour motivated by money?

Wisely chosen old material benefits from the band upgrade. ; Better career structure than GHWT; all songs unlocked for quick play

Even with band play, $60 is steep for this repackage

Why do we still like “Cherry Pie” when we know we shouldn’t?

Guitar Hero: Smash Hits


Following the heroic feat of four consecutive top-selling releases, it's not unusual for a rock star to reissue a selection of fan-favorite tracks on a single compilation album. Guitar Hero fans receive such a collection in Smash Hits. The game includes p

Guitar Hero: Smash Hits Xbox 360 Review


Guitar Hero: Smash Hits is another black eye on the rhythm game genre.

As it is this isn't a worthwhile value for your money. Accept that this is just Activision trying to milk the Guitar Hero fans for their money and wait for the price to drop so you can get it on the cheap. Then the high price point isn't much of a...
