Ever since its debut in 2005 on the PlayStation 2,
Guitar Hero has become a widely known cultural phenomenon.
Now it’s 2009, and Activision has already released six iterations of that franchise,
two of which take #5 and #4 on my list respectively:
Band Hero and Guitar Hero 5.
Guitar Hero 5 for Wii brings all the features that the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions have:
improved graphics, better gameplay modes, unlockable guest characters, competitive multiplayer modes,
and best of all, drop-in/drop-out co-op gameplay.
Guitar Hero 5 for Wii also has those features and features that make this game a must-own:
in fact, IGN.com gave the Wii version a 9.3 out of 10, stating
“if you own a Wii, you must own this game. Pure and simple.”
These features include improved online play, improved Mii Freestyle
and an all-new competitive mode called “Roadie Battle”, created especially to integrate the Nintendo DS into the game.
So why isn’t Guitar Hero Metallica or DJ Hero on this list?
Well, I have no disrespect for Guitar Hero Metallica. It’s good, but I don’t see it meeting the standards of Guitar Hero 5.
DJ Hero is kind of a silly idea: if you watched my editorial, you heard me say that the game is a disgrace to the art of turntablism.
Trust me, I played it at Best Buy one time, and it was hard for me, even on Medium difficulty.
Band Hero, in the meantime, is a more kid-friendly version of Guitar Hero 5, or rather, for the casual gamer.
It has everything you can expect in Guitar Hero 5, except a flashier but cleaner atmosphere.
This game proves to be for the casual gamer: flashy graphics, 65 fun songs to jam to, and the unlockable guest characters,
the band No Doubt, Adam Levine from Maroon 5, and music star Taylor Swift.
With Guitar Hero 5 for the hardcore and Band Hero for the casual, in the end, everybody wins.
