Guitar Hero: World Tour - Complete Band (Wii)
Advantages: Great fun!
Disadvantages: Can prove expensive for Wii players!
After many hours of playing GH3 I was really looking forward to this one. I even decided to body swerve Rock Band and wait for Guitar Hero World Tour as a sign of my loyalty! At £120 (on sale) it was pretty expensive for a game, so a few of us split for it. After lugging the box home and trying to set it up we found that one of the drum symbals was faulty (not sure if this is a common fault or not) which was a bit of a let down but once it had been replaced we were ready to rock!
It was a bit more complicated to set up and get going than GH3, obviously because of the extra instruments, but once we'd got used to the controls we were away, and it was great fun! Personally I found the drums pretty tricky, even my friend who can play a "real" drum kit took a while to get the hang of it, prob because he expected it to mirror playing a real set of drums, where it is actually quite different. But once he got going he was loving it.
Personally I decided to stick to what I know and chose the guitar! It was a real buzz playing along with a drummer and the selection of songs was pretty good. After a while we even invested in the Metallica game, which was amazing! The microphone wasn't great and I certainly wouldn't choose it over the other instruments, but I guess it would be a laugh if there was enough of you playing.
To summarise, I think if you enjoyed GH3 and have friends that also did then you'll enjoy this and it'll be worth splashing the cash. The main problem with the wii version, is that you need a wiimote for each instrument, which could prove expensive if you have to buy them for the game alone. ie if you only have one wiimote and buy GHWT, and want to get all the instruments on the go, you'll need for the mic, bass, guitar and drumkit, which could mean another 3 x £33 on top of the game price. But you could always beg borrow or steal remotes off mates who want to play, and 2 will still be enough for 1 guitar and the drums.
Summary: Rock on! (if you can afford it)
