Synopsis


It's About to Get Real

Guitar Hero Live is here. FreeStyleGames has reinvented the legendary Guitar Hero franchise with two innovative new gameplay modes and an all-new guitar controller.

GH Live mode puts you onstage, looking out: you get a heart-stopping first-person perspective as a real crowd reacts to the notes you play. Or switch over to GHTV - a playable music video network where you can play along in real time, discover new music, and challenge friends around the world.

Features


Guitar Hero Live Single Bundle. The bundle contains game software and one Guitar Hero Live wireless guitar controller

GH LIVE
You are the rock star
Playing music in front of a real crowd is like no other experience. With the new GH Live first-person view, you'll take center stage like never before

Rock real crowds with real reactions
Feel the rush of performing in a real band in front of real crowds who react in real time to your performance

You'll either win the crowd or lose them. Plus, your band mates will also let you know if you're rocking out or need to pick it up. Fight the stage fright and bring down the house

Awesome music, epic venues
In GH Live, you'll take the stage in a variety of venues. Experience it all from the intimacy of a small club or the main stage of a massive outdoor festival

GHTV. We want to thank you for being valued fans and let you know that as of December 1, 2018, the GHTV mode within Guitar Hero Live will no longer be available to play

Console versions of the GH Live mode will continue to operate as usual. For more information, please visit guitarhero.com

Thank you for playing GHTV, and head to GH Live mode on console to continue to play

THE GUITAR CONTROLLER
Easier to play, harder to master
The guitar controller was redesigned for the best gameplay across all skill levels

The new 2x3-button layout makes it easier to play with only three buttons, or, on veteran, it mirrors what it's like to play chord shapes with all six buttons, making the game easier for beginners and harder for experts

New Controller Features. More real than ever
The guitar controller has been updated to reflect the new style and realism of Guitar Hero Live

All-new button layout
The new 2x3-button layout creates the feeling of switching between strings and provides an enhanced experience when playing chords

Classic strum bar
Why mess with perfection? The strum bar you know and love is back in all its glory

Next-level Hero Powers
Use the guitar's tilt sensor or the new Hero Power button to activate one of the many newly available Hero Powers

Return of the whammy
The classic whammy bar makes a triumphant return to help you show off your flair

TAKE ON VOCALS
Offering even more ways to play together, Guitar Hero Live adds another layer of social gameplay to your living room with vocals, letting singers take the stage

Vocalists will be able to accompany the Guitarist with their very own lyrics highway at the top of the screen. All you need is a USB mic, and you're ready to rock out

Activision makes no guarantees regarding the availability of online play or features, including without limitation GHTV, and may modify or discontinue online services in its discretion without notice.

    Some Drawbacks

    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.

    I purchased this game with the idea of playing it on IOS however as of June 1st the IOS game is no longer available for download. So i had nothing else to use it for so i returned it. Lucky i didn’t open the box. I tired to download the game first before i opened it. And that’s when i figured it out. I’m surprised that Best Buy didn’t sale it as accessory only.

    Awesome Concept But Has Bugs

    I purchased this because my wife and I loved playing Rock Band and Guitar Hero on Nintendo Wii years ago, and we were excited to try it again. The game started out ok, but now every time we try to play, the screen only shows a portion of the image. I think it has something to do with the adapter you need to use from your phone to an HDMI cable to your TV. We'll keep trying because we love playing and I hope it works itself out.

    Clicky Clacky

    Playing this with my son and both of us found the buttons too clicky, as well as the strum bar. The original guitar for this game seemed much better when it was simpler. Bluetooth connectivity is unreliable, with connections sometimes dropping out in the middle of songs. For $20 though, I would say we got our money's worth.

    I purchased two of these and after receiving them, I tried to download the game from the App Store. Well as of June 1st 2018, it is no longer available for download...Not sure why they are still being sold then. A total waste of time and money.

    We’ve had the original guitar hero games with PlayStation and we had lots of fun with it. This one works with our Apple TV and iPhones. Set up was easy and never lost connection. There were songs to strum to online and offline. Good music selection. Can be adjusted from basic to expert level. Good game.

    Only complaint I would have is it needs an update, because it can be a little buggy sometimes. Mostly when I’m connecting the guitar on start-up. Other than that it’s a sweet game!

    Fun for even a 50yr old

    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.
