Lots of guitar fun5 Posted by: from: on I totally enjoy this musical game. At times it can be difficult but that's where the fun begins. I recommend for a rocking good time.

Not a fan of the new guitar3 Posted by: from: on I love Guitar Hero but this game leaves a lot to be desired. I'm not crazy about the "live performance" approach of the game, and the redesigned guitar is very hard to master. As a result, I've only played a few times and have since given up.

GH Live for Apple TV is so cool5 Posted by: from: Bend, OR on I purchased this to go along with my 4th generation Apple TV and love that I can play a console quality game without the console. Kudos to Apple!

Some Drawbacks3 Posted by: from: on Bought this game to use with the new AppleTV. It works well and the controller pairs easily, but there are a couple of complaints. First - the new format is kind of strange. If you remember the old Guitar Hero games, there were 5 colored keys on the guitar. With the new version there are "high and low" keys and you have to press the right ones based on an up or down note that comes across on the screen. It is a bit confusing and I understand they were probably trying to make the game "new," but it was a little frustrating. The new "live" videos are nice because you don't have to look at cartoon characters while you play and it makes you seem like you are actually on stage, so that is nice. The biggest complaint I have with the iOS version is that your game only saves when you are signed in with your iTunes / Game Center account. If you have multiple people who play this game, it becomes a big pain to navigate to the AppleTV settings menu, log out of the account, and login to the new one (it also does not store passwords, so you have that to deal with each time). I wish that the game itself would let you login with your credentials once and then select who is playing for that session. This is a huge down-side to this version. I would say to skip the iOS version and get it on a console instead.

Fun for even a 50yr old5 Posted by: from: on Having a blast with guitar hero. Gameplay is fun, yet challenging for this 50yr old. I have even found some new bands I enjoy that I probably would not have found any other way. Quality and connectivity to iPad pro have been smooth with no issues.
