    From reading the reviews here you'll get a mixed review, the majority saying its great fun and some saying its poor! The truth is ignore these people who say its poor. There is nothing poor about it one bit. The whole playing is great, im a guitarist but find myself playing drums most. It is a great way to have fun and build up your skills, after a few attempts you progress and improve your drum skills. The guitar is also great i enjoy the neck slider its great addition to the guitar, in total this is a great game to play solo or with family and friends.

    The main complaint some people say are the choice of songs, the song choices are actually good fit well together and are enjoyable to play. One of the factors i enjoy about GH is that you dont know every song and you expand your music tastes and discover both new songs and bands. The people that complain about the setlist are just idiots for the simple fact the songs are on the back of the box and available online. Read them before you buy the game if that matters so much to you. As for the rest of us normal people enjoy the game!

    As for fish2deaths review, ignore it! Just because he can complete it on expert means nothing and doesnt deserve a bad review at all, it just shows hes played it far to much and needs another challenge. Ignore that, and go buy this game, yes it is a lot of money but so worth the hours and days of fun you and your family can have with this

    Wow... Great game, if your a guitar hero fan this is a must have. The new features are a great addition to the game, the drums are amazing, very realistic and arn't loud when hit. The guitar is really good the tapping strip is a very nice addition and works wvery well.

    I recommend this on the PS3 or the Xbox 360 as the gameplay and graphics are much better. Guitar Hero have really out done themselfs on this game... well done!

    If you were thinking about getting rockband or waiting for rockband 2 then don't becuase this is miles better, i purchased rockband 2 from america and i liked it but its not as good as Guitar Hero.

    If you are wanting this for christmas then get it for your kids or ask for it from your parents as its a great gift to have and it is at a reasonable price too... only £149.99.

    If you found this helpful than please state.

     Great fun even if my 9 year old is better than me :)

    Ok after reading a lot of reviews and finding that a lot of people who bought this game actually played guitar or drums had kinda said it wasnt like playing the real thing i took the plunge and asked santa for it, and guess what he delivered wahooooo.

    After having played gh3 and aerosmith i couldnt wait to get it all out the box and start bashing the drums even though ive never played drums before.

    What fun we had my 11 year old daughter asked to try the drums and is better than me so for the last week ive been stuck playing the guitar which is still a lot of fun.

    I can only play using 3 buttons as anymore than that i think id sprain my fingers.

    My only gripe is that while playing you cant hear the drum pads too well in game, you can here the pads being hit but the sound thay should make within the actual track your playing seems minimal.

    This would have 5 starts had the drums been louder in game, i cant see no option to turn these up and it doesnt matter how hard you hit them they sound the same, i hope a patch sorts this out.

    Overall great game great fun get ur mates round and have a laugh.

     Well worth it the price, but it has its issues!!

    First off, i couldn't decide between Rock Band (with all the gear) or Guitar Hero: World Tour (with all the gear), but all the reviews said exactly the same thing...

    ...The equipment for GHWT are far better and I can say im not dispointed.

    I'm in no way a GH fan-boy though, and my plan of action is simple. I bought this one to get the better equipment and the game (which is good anyway) and THEN I buy Rock Band 2 (without gear) to get better music and generally a better game.

    That way I have the best of both worlds (hoping its true the equipment works on RB2).

    Back to the review...

    ...basically you get what it says on the tin. You get a guitar hero game, which allows you play not just a guitar, but also drums and sing. You can do all these individually by yourself or as a group.

    Your not forced to play along side someone else here!!

    Simple as that! If you liked the previous Guitar Hero games, you wil know what to expect and you will probably like enjoy it. The only issue is that it doesnt do anything new.... its Guitar Hero with a drum set and a microphone, and thats it really.

    Once you play one GH game, you've played them all and this is nothing different. There are the odd changes, but nothing ground breaking. It feels more like an expansion to GH3 then a whole new game, but it hasnt really fixed anything, but still works great.

    Now, the equipment....

    ....I can say i've had none of the Drum sensitivity issues and mine work fine out the box, and the same can be said for the guitar.

    The only issue I find is when you connect the Drums and Guitar, the PS3 automatically assigns them to controller slot 6 and 7 and this causes the game to not recognise them as connected.

    Now this isn't a major issue because the PS3 still recognises them and allows you to move back to the splash screen and re-assign them to controller 1 and 2 (which fixes it) and bobs your uncle, its all fine.

    But why it does this, is beyond me and it is a bit frustrating!!

    As for the build of the gear....

    ...the guitar looks a lot better then the GH3 one, but its fundimentally identical, which is good. The only differences are the layout of the buttons, a new star power button, and the slider bar.

    Now... I havent used the slider bar because I find its too fiddley to do so, and you dont have to either. You can just select the keys anyway.

    The drums too are awsome! The built is strong, they weight quite a bit so they dont fall over, you can feel the quality in them and they wont break anytime soon. They kick peddle may be loose, but it hasn't slid around on me so far.

    But nothing is perfect; I find hitting the symbols doesnt always work as you have to hit them on the center and not the edge and the kick peddle takes a lot of force to get it to work.

    But the drums are a lot harder to use then the guitar and no doubt take time to get used to them, and they wear you out no end!!!

    Other then that, the gear is great, works great, looks great and the game is fun too!

    GHWT is not a perfect game; it has its issues and some small things have changed from GH3 which make you wonder why because it makes things a bit frustrating. Butt over all the issues are outweighted by a great game and great equipment.

    I still plan to get Rock Band 2 though, but at least I have good equipment to use. My advice (if you can afford it) is buy this for the gear and the game and THEN buy Rock Band 2.

    Then you have both sides!!!

    You pay for what you get, and tthis is worth it for the equipment alone which are very well built.

     A great step forward

    If I were you, I'd ignore fish2death's comments. Just because of one bad experience, doesn't mean you'll have one too. This is an excellent purchase in comparison to Rock Band because Rock Band feels like it's a wannabe rockstar, whereas Guitar Hero is the rockstar. It picks the right tunes for you to play if you're an 'old rock' and metal fan, there are some gems in there non-rock lovers will find too however. The drums are awesome. I find myself playing them more than the guitar now! My only gripe is some songs do feel a little out of place, you see the band's name and you think it could be a well-known single but instead it's a lesser known b-side. It does help when it's songs well known. Other than that just the songs available for download. Rock Band seem to be getting a myriad of albums but no sign of a similar deal just yet. Either way the record-a-song facility is quite fun if you're a very musical person. I managed to recreate My Lovely Man by Red Hot Chili Peppers and had a lotta fun playing it back.
