As I’m approaching the 900 mark – a big milestone that I’m still amazed I’m getting this close to – I’m getting to a lot of penultimates and this is one – for Guitar Hero: World Tour I’m going to get the guitar out we’ve been using since The Beatles: Rock Band and last had out in Guitar Hero: Metallica. This time the game isn’t branded with a band, but instead is a general game. It is, in fact, the fourth game in the series, just not numbered as such (but succeeded by Guitar Hero 5, which isn’t on our list).

Our Thoughts

Listen, trust me, I’ve played the game, but as it is the Guitar Hero and Rock Band series aren’t that different to describe. The gameplay is the same and while I can say the selection of songs is good, that new selection is the big draw and I’m not music literate enough to really describe that… trust me.

The main new feature are extended sustains, which looked like a nice addition and was an extra option in there. The art in the cut scenes are nice but, to be honest, with the story not being there – another “you’re a starting rock star, make it in your career” thing – there isn’t much to it. That’s not the point of it anyway. You want to play your guitar with your friends and see how well you do. It still does that and the series stays great at it.
