There’s a good mix of music here from across the ages and from a variety of genres. You’ll only effectively have on-demand access to 40-odd of the 100+ tracks, but it’s still a great setlist.
The live-action concerts are actually really well presented and are incredibly engaging, almost too much though, that your eyes start to wander from the play space to see what’s going on around you.
The new guitar does make the game seem fresh, but it comes at a cost: that cost is fun. There’s something about the 5-row setup that made us feel like Slash, the 6-button controller makes us feel more like Chris Martin.
Both Guitar Hero Live and Guitar Hero TV are both well represented. There’s a distinct lack of direct player-to-player online multiplayer though, something which gave the other titles their longevity.
A decent list with some neat ideas. Clearly aimed at the more pro-players, but not entirely impossible for Guitar Hero noobs to grab a decent amount of points. Whoever you are though, be prepared to put in the hours.
