Guitar Hero Warriors of Rock

Guitar Hero Warriors of Rock review

Since Guitar Hero first came out on the PS2 it’s gone through a number of changes. Since Guitar Hero 2 every song now uses all the assets from the original track, drums, bass and vocals all come together for four-player action, they’ve dabbled with guitar duels and battles with famous guitarists such as Slash and of course there is online play and leaderboards for you to try and grind your way to the top of the last by proving you have the best ‘axe’ skills. Warriors of Rock takes a refreshing approach and uses a sort of fantasy role-playing story...

Guitar Hero On Tour review

It’s true that Guitar Hero is now a mammoth franchise and it’s been successful on every home platform. Now Activision want you to have a go at air guitar by letting you play Guitar Hero On Tour on the move on your DS. At first glance it looks like a cool idea. The game features all the core gameplay from the console version with a peripheral made specifically for the game – a grip that slots into your GBA port on your DS. You hold the DS as if it were a book and use your four fingers to press...
