Guitar Hero World Tour (Xbox 360)
Advantages: Just love it, great game
Disadvantages: Nothing for me
If like me you have ever yearned to be a guitar hero then this game is the one for you. It is absolutley brilliant and I could play it all day long, given the chance and the opportunity. I was on sick leave from work recently as I had sprained my lower back and I spent a lot of many hours just strumming on tunes on my XBox 360 - pure bliss.
I have the guitar and disc version of this game and it cost me £55 but it is well worth it. The choice of soundtracks on this game is immense and I find I'm still singing them in my sleep as I drift off - it is a very addictive game. I liked the fact that this also came with some pretty funky looking stickers which I gave to the little lad and he proceeded to stick them all over his bike.
This game has five different modes ranging from beginner, easy, medium, hard and expert. I have got as far as hard on some of the songs but I am planning on working my way up to expert on all of them eventually. I have to say though, that some songs are harder to play along to than others and some songs are difficult to manage even on the Easy or beginner setting.
There are also five notes on the guitar inlcuding a whammy, which is great fun. Me and the little lad play along to songs and he has one or two favourites which he plays over and over again and he is beciming quite expert at it now. Once he's in bed though I take this downstairs to my basement and strum along to the harder songs and imagine I am a true rock star.
The premise is simple and straightforward. Along with the five differeing modes, of which one you choose, there are also five different colours on your control. Each time a colour comes up on the screen you play the corresponding colour on your control. Easy in theory but maybe not so easy in practice.
The sound quality and graphics are also impressive on this game and I find it highly addictive. Once I start I cannot put it down and as I say, the range of tracks are excellent.
Cannot be faulted and recommended by me personally.
