    Good game, not great.

    Posted .

    I started playing GH back on the PS2 with Guitar Hero 2. I owned every GH since and RB too. I loved these games and when my PS3 died I was most upset about not having them when I upgraded to the PS4. With that being said, I learned with GH World Tour not to buy them on release day as the controllers are notorious for having problems. I waited a year to buy it which was probably overkill, but the game didn't get great reviews so I knew I could be patient. Funny thing is I sit down with my shiny new game and guitar controller and guess what? You betcha! Controller button stick in and will not pop out! Rather than take it back right away I do what I always do with this game. Take it apart, make sure it's not a quick fix. Watch some YouTube videos on sticky keys and 30 minutes later I am ROCKING! The middle bottom row key had too much white paint on the inside and it needed to be scraped off. I also put some scrap paper along the back of the circuit board giving the rubber spring more to push against. ANYWAY on with the game. I love the new button format. It tricks my brain after years of having the six keys in one row. Some of the chord shapes also puzzle me as they would never occur on a real guitar. The included songs and "campaign" are fun, but not nearly long enough. The guitar hero TV concept is entertaining and fun to hear new songs. I have an old mic from the old games so that's fun too. But I REALLY miss two things. The first is the drum set. I feel so limited playing the stupid four pad rock band one, but it's fun. The five pad GH world tour was a lot better. It brought a lot more to the game and I really miss it. The second thing is the option for a bass or rhythm guitar track. My friends and I are all there playing the exact same notes. There is no option for a bass line and quite honestly when one of you misses it's very distracting to the other. This is not the way a real band works and it's a loss. The only other thing I don't like is the fact that you can't fail a song. We would try for hours to get all the way through a song to unlock the next level. With this game you can miss every single note and still move on. What video game works like that? Anyway. It's better than nothing, but still far from the great old games.

    We enjoy the new version, although we're missing some favorite songs from The previous GT in PS3, it's still worth it!

    Great buy if you enjoyed previous GH games!

    So as my title says I believe that this is a great purchase if you are a fan of previous Guitar Hero games. The game has different controls then the previous games by having 3 upper and 3 lower buttons on the fret board rather than the 5 in a row. It makes for a learning curve from previous installments but once you get the hang of it its wonderful! The game itself has great graphics and unique features. The campaign features a live audience video rather than the previous animated audiences. It is an awesome new feature but nothing amazing. Guitar Hero Live is also a new feature of the game. It is a constantly streaming "TV" channel that shows different genre's of music on a 24h loop. At any moment you can jump in and play along and earn credits from playing. You can use these credits to upgrade your nameplate, fret boards, and other pretty basic personalization features. One of the biggest negatives of this game to me is the whole buying songs. You can only buy songs as a one time use from the Guitar Hero store. You can buy these either using the credits earned from playing or paying real money. All just to rent the song for a one time use. The "Supreme Party Edition" does come with credits right off the bat so that is nice. Still though, the point being that you can't just buy the songs permanently is annoying. Overall: PROS Graphics Sound Design Updated controller Guitar Hero Live CONS Limited Use Songs Having to buy credits or play a ton to earn them Cannot play the campaign with two people (Only solo) Most of the songs included in the base game aren't very great.. I mean Skrillex and Katy Perry?

    Game is pretty fun

    Posted .

    This game brings back the nostalgia from my guitar hero 1 days . The guitar is a completely new guitar . For the first time in guitar hero I was not able to start on a hard level. I had to start on easy to get my fingers used to the guitar. That was a great feeling. The only real complaints I have is the music in the story mode. There a some good songs on the set lists, but a lot of them are also play once and never play again. I've noticed I spend most of my time on guitar hero tv. Which is an online playlist channels. You play song set on random is a pve pvp type thing. You earn coin from this to buy play money. With this you can go on a playlist where you can hand pick a song to play once . My problem with this is most of the time you won't be playing the story mode and you will be playing random songs just to earn enough coin to play a song you like. Some might like it I'm just "ok" with it .

    Awesome game! Slight catch to 2 player

    Posted .

    Awesome game. Guitars are really cool looking, and the new keys are so much more fun than the old ones. It feels much more like a real guitar. I love it so far! The problem is when you play the game with 2 players only player 1 can sign in. So player 2 is always guest and progress isn't tracked. It's a sad oversight as I don't know any other game that works that way. I hoped that since it was released a while ago they would have changed it by now, but I couldn't find any way to have player 2's progress tracked. Also, the career can only be played 1 player. The career is pretty short though so I don't think it matters that much. I'd give the game 5 stars if it didn't have these problems. I feel that the player 2 sign in is a more minor flaw. I'd still highly recommend this game for anyone who's ever liked guitar hero in the past.

    The absolute best guitar hero to date!

    Posted .

    Activision has done it again. Another hit in the G.H. franchise. It's been a few years since a GH game had been released and it was a nice break. But with this new version, there are so many more elements to the game that add to the replayability. For starters, the guitar itself feels and handles more like a real guitar in terms of hitting the notes. Gone are the simple 4 buttons straight across. Now there are 2 rows of 3 making it even more challenging but fun once you get the hang of it. And like previous installments, you can adjust the game difficulty allowing players the time to adjust to the new guitar. Next, there are a ton of songs on this game to choose from and they're all categorized by era. Hair rock, metal, indie, pop, etc. The live element provides a real sense of being on stage. When you play poorly, the crowd and the band will let you know. This is one of the biggest improvements to me. Instead of having to restart the song or pick an entirely new one just because you can't keep up or hit the right notes, the game gives you the opportunity to get it together and get back on track enabling you to win back the crowd and band mates. I love this game. Great for social gatherings at home or rockin out by yourself for hours on end. So many great songs that range from the most well known to the obscure and I love them all.

    Fun game

    I've always loved the guitar hero games but it had been a few years since I've played one. They have updated the guitars to make them more realistic, which also means it's more difficult but still fun to play. Unfortunately the actual game play took my husband and 2 hours at the most to beat. There are more songs you can play when go to Ghtv but in order to do so you need to use a song credit each time. The GhTV is a fun option, you can play live against 9 other players and you earn points which are used towars the songs. I wish there was an option to keep the extra songs but still it's a fun game.

    Great for all, but especially for GH Fans!

    Albeit a slight learning curve with the new guitar and "chords" setup, this game is still fun nonetheless! Gives you a much "closer" feel to playing the real thing as well as providing a brain exercise for you given that you have to learn to differentiate fast between top row of tabs or bottom, to "barring" a whole fret, etc. Best part about it is when playing at a party or get together and all songs aren't already unlocked, you can purchase (for about $9.99 I believe?) an all access party pass to have all music videos unlocked and playable for 24 hours upon purchase!

    Guitar and HERO...what more needs to be said?!!!

    |
    Posted .

    This is a great buy for anyone that enjoyed the prior versions, this live edition with the ability to play with real music vids is a must. You get 2 guitar controllers and access to the live content...catch it on sale or even regular price and you get all of this for right around $60, unheard of nowadays! Great fun for all and as a party/family get-together, hours of fun! Would like to see more "hybrid" content, for example, being able to play with EDM, Hip hop, etc but with new live content being released this is a must buy for music, guitar, and HEROs!!!

    Definitely harder

    |
    Posted .

    This has 3 buttons up and 3 buttons down, sometimes you'll be playing one up and one down and it also has a bar "chord" where both buttons (up and down on the same level) are pressed at the same time. The live version concentrates on being live and it's harder to hear the music you are "playing" as sometimes it doesnt even match the music in the song. All in all, a fun game. I do have a guitar out of the box that wouldn't strum down, onluly up. At times, it's also been hard to sync both guitars as it wants to make them both the 1st player.

    It's a classic

    Posted .

    Just like the classic Guitar Hero, this one has been a lot of fun thus far. It is different from the original in that the fingering has changed - instead of going up and down the fret there are three strings on top and three on bottom, which takes some getting used to. Still fun and the graphics are spectacular. If you mess up the crowd (and fellow band members) start scowling at you - brilliant!

    Different but still loads of fun

    Posted .

    This updated version will throw old GH users for a loop. The buttons are different so be prepared for lots of fun (hopefully not frustration) getting skilled at this change. The songs are relatively current songs so I was disappointed about that. I attribute some of the reason younger people love "old school" music is because they played the original GH. (Smile)

    Kudos for new controls, but spirit is lacking

    |
    Posted .

    Of the original 3 Guitar Hero titles, the 3rd one was without rival and truly offered something for everyone from both a music and challenge perspective (anyone remember Through the Fire and Flames?). However, that was the only Guitar Hero title that truly retained the soul of the two original Harmonix games, in my opinion. Activision did a fine job with Guitar Hero 3, but it's been a downhill battle since with cash grab spinoffs and rehashing the same old. I'll laud the company for the new control scheme with six buttons, as that was what convinced me to give this title a shot. Also, the idea of Guitar Hero TV seems to be a bit of a mixed bag. No longer do we have access to all songs of the base game on a whim (unless you're willing to pay for it ala a real life Jukebox). But, there is more of a "default" song selection now than ever and still certainly some fun to be had. While the game is still fairly fun, it just doesn't quite have that same spirit of some of the older, classic, rhythm-action games, in my opinion.

    Fun to play

    Once I got used to the differences going from the Wii to the PS4 I am really starting to enjoy this game. This package with the cash is pretty nice to start off with. Down fall... they don't releases new songs often enough and they seem to keep cycling through the same songs. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who asked.

    Wish it had a better offline game

    Posted .

    The game overall is good. The only beef I had with it is there are a lot more pop songs than guitar songs. Also, the game doesn't end mid song when you mess up, it just changes the fans reaction. If the story mode had a better song list and more achievements to do, it would be a better game.

    The guitars don't always synch properly and on occasion don't work at all. You have to reset the game completely which also causes you to lose any progress you have made thus far. On the other side however this game is fun and addicting. The graphics are astonishing, and the sound is crisp and clear.

    This game is great. It would get 5 stars except setting it up is ridiculous. Getting the game to two player mode was relentlessly confusing and time consuming. Other than that its an awesome game. I love that you can play popular songs on the other mode.

    Great game, didn't care for video movement

    Game play was good, a little more complicated to get going when compared to the old school GH, but once you get through the "mandatory" short tutorials, playing is good. The video recording makes me and my GF dizzy if we look at it while we're not actually playing. Overall another great game!

    Great game to have with kids around. Plenty of live songs to play. Earning play credits are easier than what people states. Songs on disc are very limited. As long as the live portion are still supported for a few years, will be a great game.
