This is the best one so far! It has the same features as World Tour ,but it is more creative and the graphics are great! The characters are younger looking than anyone other I have played. The song titles to choose from are ones that a teenager will know atleast ten. More entertaining than any other and definately more challenging! Every GH fan will like this game. I've only played for two hours and I'm already hooked!

I am a hard core guitar hero fan/player. if played guitar hero 1,2,3,4,aroesmith and now five. gh5 has more meatil and hard rock but as you progres you get more older songs. I have found only one real flaw which is that they don't swich the singer for a girl singed song or a girl singer to a boy singer. the game has started a new genration for the season and the next gh will probily be another big one. hope you injoy it and i did not tell you about the wi-fi because my wi-fi is broke. I will give you a new reivew soon so see you later.

I recently purchased Guitar Hero 5 for the Wii and it is AWESOME! I had never played GH on the Wii before. Previously, I had owned a few GH games for the PS2. The upgrade from those old PS2 games to the new GH5 is amazing!!

I was going to review all the different game modes but there isn't enough space. So here are reviews of the two new modes that can use a Nintendo DS.

Mii Freestyle Mode: This is a really fun mode when you want to take a break. Using any of the Mii’s saved on your system, choose a music style and just jam. I like this mode because you can use a Wii remote and nunchuck to play ‘air drums’ if you don’t have a real GH drum set. The air drums only work in Mii Freestyle Mode, though. You can record and save your jam sessions, and if you have a Nintendo DS, you can use Download Play to be the ‘Stage Manager.’ This gives the DS player complete control over the camera angles, lighting, and visual effects on screen. You can even send your saved videos to other people on your Wii friend roster! (Though I haven’t tried that just yet… lol!)

DS Roadie Mode: This mode REQUIRES a Nintendo DS. It’s wacky, crazy, high-pressure fun! If you’ve ever played “GH: On Tour” for the DS Lite, then you already know how to play this mode. One player uses the guitar controller and plays a song as usual. Their DS counterpart, or Roadie, is standing by to help their partner and sabotage the opponent. Up to two guitarists and two Roadies can battle at once. The DS mini-games are all similar to the Guitar Battles from “GH: On Tour.” You need to blow out fires, re-connect the sound board, destroy your opponent’s speakers… and lots more! My tip: communicate well with your partner, and you'll be an unbeatable team!
