After all is said and done... you can only have so much fun playing with a fake guitar for so long. But even with that looming over their heads Guitar Hero 5 is a great addition to the guitar hero line up. Many fun songs that already come unlocked, the ability to go page by page on the menus, intricate character creation and a smoother on screen HUD are just a few of the perks of this game and is sure to become a classic for all guitar hero junkies of this age.
Well, I was really looking forward to the game. I really like the setlist but the gameplay was difficult for me to play. Also the buttons on the controller didn't match the buttons on the game. I would press the blue button and the yellow chord would activate and my orange button wouldn't do anything. I looked for help but I couldn't find anything that would fix the problem. Also, I played GH world tour, i enjoyed the fact that i could keep my finger on the button and just strum until i had to change the chord. GH5 doesn't do that, you have to strike the chord and strum together then release and do it again for the next note or even the same note.
Wow, My son and I were really looking foward to playing Guitar Hero 5 since the Metallica version was so awsome. Sorry to say we were very let down. All though the option to jump into a song without restarting was cool, the song selection was very dissapointing. About 80% of the songs we had never heard of and most were very slow paced. I suppose after playing the Metallica version anything else just seems lame or too slow (spoiled we geuss). Anyway, this game maybe fine for others that enjoy alot of alternative and punk music but it just was'nt our cup of tea.
