Guitar Hero 5 - Game Only (Wii)
Advantages: Nothing that I can point out.
Disadvantages: Needs a specific controler.
I bought this game not long ago, when I wanted to try something new in the video game section. The game is really fun but at first your fingers might get tangled, I remember me playing it for the first time ever, without even reading the instructions before playing, I missed almost all notes.
At the start of the game when you turn it on you can choose to play career, quick jam, roadie battle and other stuff. If you choose career, at first you will get a chance to customize your Guitar Hero and his or her guitar, then you will be allowed to choose the difficulty from beginner, easy, medium, hard, extreme and hero. Then you will be able to customize other characters of your band, I didn't bother because it would take too long since the game is controlled by the guitar not your standard Wiimote and nunchuck so I just picked random, but you can if you want it to be a good-looking band ;). Finally you name yourself and the band. You play songs at different venues, as you play songs you earn stars depending on your performance, there is a number of stars you need to collect to advance to the next venue, also the songs you perform at the venue will not unlock until you completed all of the other songs before it or sometimes it gives you a goal. It took me ages to move on to the third venue, I unlocked it before I completed the venue, as in play all the songs, so I had to play them before I could move on. You can play with any combination of instruments, drums, guitar and mic.
If you are no good at a song you can play it in quick jam and practice it and practice, and remember practice makes perfect!!! You will be able to play any combination of instruments as well, so all your friends and family can practice, practice, practice!!! I remember me and my friends playing it, I was on the guitar with another friend while my other was on the drums, I bought the full kit, I should say the band pack which includes the mic, drums, and a guitar, only one guitar, my friend already had one so he gave it to my other friend and he switched to drums since he never played them, we played the quick jam and career, we had a great laugh at our own mistakes that were sometimes so stupid but most important we had fun, I tried singing and playing guitar at once but too hard!!!
You can also play Mii freestyle where your Miis play instead of the Guitar Hero's you can play drums even if you dont have them with your Wiimote and nunchuck using the feature Air Drums.
You can also create music and share it on the internet and download other peoples creations, I tried to but I stink at it, you can use drums and guitar. Its very fun.
At first using the guitar may be hard and your fingers may get ''tangled'' but soon you will get the hang of it, also strumming and pressing the buttons at the same time may give you hard time also, I pressed the button and strummed later which did not work you have to do it at exactly the same time, well you can do it in a space of 5 milliseconds time.
Its hard at first but pays you out at learning it. it pays you in the currency of fun!!!
This is a standalone version which means this only includes the game so it is necessary to buy a guitar, you can buy it as a multi pack, which I recommend than buying it separately, since its cheaper together. Have Fun!!!
Summary: Very fun for people who enjoy music.
