World Tour should have been called Band Hero to begin with since it featured more than just guitars. Band move on their behalf because this just makes it sound retarded now.

Adam Levine said he was relevant...that's just fucking surreal.
As for the game not having Bodom, you've missed the point of this game. It isn't an extra GH game, it's just a game full of the pop songs people always complain about. I don't know about you guys, but I'd rather Adam Levine be in a game I know will blow and can avoid than mingling with my King Crimson and Rush in GH5.

is there a full setlist yet?

and this game's coming with its own bundle as well apparently, more crap we dont really need.

just sell the software activision, we dont need more jank bundles with jank peripherals thank-you.

and yeah, its just another cheap GH knock-off by the same publisher. these, if anything, should really be dlc for either GH4 or more likely GH5.

As far as I can see, the only difference between this and Guitar Hero is the visuals. If you at this they are going for a slighlty less 'cartoon' look to the graphics. Still, I would hardly think it warrants an entire new game. Activision are killing this genre with their greed!

Some people prefer this kind of music and the pop genres to the rock/metal type on Guitar Hero so it's not all that bad Musical taste is a huge widespread thing across the world and for many people so don't hate on other peoples preferences. Obviously you're not going to buy it if you're not interested so I don't see the point in complaining.

WOW! you guys should stop hating on everything, oh it's going to be shit because it doesn't have hench blokes with beards and tattoo's screaming...

To be honest, this game is aimed at family's and things for partys, hence it having PiNK! & Maroon 5 on etc etc

So stop hating on it, and just don't buy it if you don't like it!

It needs more METAL (!!!). What about a Guitar Hero Metal? Bodom, In Flames, Dark Tranquillity, Sonic Syndicate, Sentenced, Blind Guardian, Helloween, Grave Digger, Hammerfall, Rage, Running Wild, Eternal Tears of Sorrow (...) That would be a very cool game!!!

I probably won't buy this until the price has dropped down a considerable amount. I've seen one or two songs announced so far that I'd like to play, but not too much there for me.

mmmm, yet another reason i just listen to whatever music i want, rather than have some commercialized shit crammed down my throat in the "next-gen" Simon mold.

Simon was more fun than any GH/Rockband/whateverthenextripoffiscalled game.

i love how original developers have been with these games though. truly mind-boggling.

Activision is rapidly replacing EA as the Wal-Mart of video games.

I'm done with all these GH cash-in's. Might get GH5 when it goes down in price a bit as that has 85 songs but thats it for me. Activision are burning this franchise into the ground.

The worst part of this game is that it has a big focus on Solo artists with a supporting band. And they call it BAND hero. Makes me sick.

YES! Maroon 5! I can't wait to see who else is in the game. Maybe obligatory Disney girl or any _____ Brothers not "Blood." Maybe if we're lucky, a Chris Cornell puppet with a hand up its ass will make an appearance.

Agreeing with most of the users here, I Use to really enjoy these music games, but now they are just more of the recycled garbage songs and no new gameplay. Guitar hero should just make a music store like rock band, instead of releasing 3-4 full disc games a year (overkill). I know that they are going to have a demo for GH:6 with this game and trailers for GH:7, 8 and 9 all due out 1st quarter 2010... LAME

I have somehow become to accept DJ Hero but I will not accept Band Hero, it's basically similar to the Guitar Hero games of today but with a different name. How in Earth could Band Hero stand out? No way.

@37 usually im a grammar nazi and would have picked up on that but at 11.14pm (NZT) when i haven't had my coffee or red bull the brain goes a little offline lol.
but good point #6 instead of all the good songs spread thinly in between all the bands a lot of people haven't heard of-slash-don't like they should put them altogether. bring on GH: Metal. They copied everything else about rock band so why can't they copy the metal pack?

You Are Seeing A Lot Of Diference Between Guitar Hero 1/2/3 And Now This Crap - 1/2/3 Was the Real Guitar Work , Now we only got Pop - R&B Classic - Elton John - Crap - I Want Battle Against - Slash/TomMorello/Ted Nuget/KeithRichards/joe(from aerosmith)/And many more but not this maroon 5 SHIT! ! ! ! ! !

@13 That's just it. The Guitar Hero franchise isn't real, decent metal or rock anymore. As others have said, the music is becoming way too mainstream. I mean come on, not everyone wants to play songs from bands like No Doubt do they? I really don't see the difference between this game and say world tour.

@22 MOAR metal would be awesome and if I saw all of them bands in the setlist of Guitar Hero 6 or w/e, I would preorder asap.

@48 Exactly how I feel :).

This is a guitar hero world tour, nothing else with obviously more crap song.I like guitar hero games a lot but, man, they are making this game worst not because they do a lot of em' but because they don't put enough metal, or rock songs in it. All the damn bands like pop or spanish sht or marro 5 do not f**king deserve to be in these games that's what piss me off. the best game ever of guitar playing is GH2,GH3 and Metallica IMO.

Crap is the one word that sums this game up. The best band music games have "Rock" in there names.
Rock Band 2 is hands down the best game for the full band experience.

Honestly it doesn't look like a bad game, I like how there focusing on different types of music other then just Heavy Meal/Rock but a poor choice on the name though.
