Elevating the Guitar Hero series to new heights with unmatched social gameplay, an enhanced style, new in-game artists and more rock legends, Guitar Hero 5 features new surprises and challenges that will fire-up long-time fret board fanatics and create a new generation of addicts. Players take complete control as Guitar Hero 5 allows gamers to personalise and customise how they experience music with any in-game instrument combination - multiple vocalists, guitarists, bassists and drummers, in any game mode. With the game's all-new Party Play Mode, getting the band back together has never been easier. Players can now jump in or drop out of gameplay seamlessly, without interrupting their jam session. Guitar Hero 5 puts the entire set list at players' finger tips from the start, featuring genre-defining hits from some of the biggest rock artists and bands of all-time, including Tom Petty, Kings Of Leon, The White Stripes, Stevie Wonder, Iron Maiden and Vampire Weekend.

The Definitive Rock 'n' Roll Set List: Experience some furious finger fretting, intense drumming, and lyrics that will challenge even the best vocal chops in a set list that pays homage to classic riffs, rhythms and lyrics that push the limits of rock 'n' roll.

    Assemble Your Band and Rock Any Way You Want: Guitar Hero 5 allows fans to play alone, as a full band or, for the first time, with any combination of multiple guitarists, bassists, drummers or vocalists to customise their musical experience.

      Become The Best. Shred The Rest: In Guitar Hero 5 players can test their skills against others with four-player local and up to eight-player online battles in the all-new competitive RockFest Mode. Within RockFest Mode, players can choose from various gameplay types including Elimination, Momentum, Do Or Die, Streakers, Perfectionist and Pro Face Off, for how they want to dominate their competition.

        The Band That Plays Together: Bands can earn bonus multipliers by hitting new special note streams in unison, creating an even greater sense of excitement and accomplishment for players that can rock songs together.

          Join The Party: It has never been easier to rip it up and rock out with friends than it is in Guitar Hero 5. The brand-new Party Play Mode puts players straight into the action with the press of a button and allows them to jump in or drop out, or switch difficulty level at any time without interrupting the jam session.

            Make and Share Music: Guitar Hero 5 features the innovative Music Studio and GHTunes first introduced in 'Guitar Hero: World Tour'. Produce hits in the redesigned Music Studio with improved editing tools, new guitar samples and mix patterns and share them online with GHTunes.

             The best in the series

            | | See all simontjohns's reviews (1)

            This is by far the best Guitar hero in the series. My reason for this bold statement is as follows.... Improved aesthetics(standard stuff). The song list at first glance is a bit confusing as some choices don't seem so obvious. This is where you have to decide what is a 'good' song. Is a good song something catchy like "sex on fire" which is instrumentally poor thus reflecting how it plays on the game, compared to something like "scatterbrain" by Jeff Beck which is not that catchy but due to its technical instrumentals makes it A LOT more fun than something from the Kings of Leon. So basically, they have thought a lot more about what would PLAY well.There are easy songs for people getting in to the series, but there are some of the hardest songs in the series on disc as well. I play the drums and found that there were a lot more technical songs which world tour lacked aside from maybe 3 or 4 exceptions. Another thing for the drummers is the double bass expert+ difficulty. If you're into Guitar hero or Rockband Drums, you will appreciate this greatly. Also...no more fighting over who gets stuck with bass(no offense to bass players, but most people want to play guitar when playing the game). You can have any combo of instruments e.g 4 drums/ 4 guitars/2drums2bass etc etc. The game generally has lots of nice little features which i couldn't really do justice in writing, but the main improvements are.. looks better, plays better, can be made easy for newbies, can be made challenging for veterans. Comparing it to the Beatles Rockband is a bit silly because it's a game based on one band. If you like the Beatles...chances are you will like the game, but don't expect any challenging songs. ( I own both games just for the record so i am not just making assumptions).

            I had such high hopes for this game, ive had it 2 weeks and not completed it yet, i get bored after about 10 minutes playing, track list is poor with about 10-15 recognisable songs, i'll stick to world tour or rock band........rubbish!!!

            I've been a dedicated GH fan since the series started and even with the release of rock band before GH could release their version of a full band with World Tour, I still remained faithful due to the brilliant song list.

            Unfortunately looking down the list of songs on GH5, I saw about 10 songs I recognised and about 3 I liked. Guitar Hero has quickly became Indie Hero. Sorry, but how hard is 'sex on fire' and 'never miss a beat' to play? Yeah fun songs to sing but I can't recommend the game for MY PERSONAL song preference.

            Due to the song list, I'd only give it 3 stars, really it is a good game still, good features as always and graphics are improving all the time.

            If your going to get it, I think I'd check out the FULL song list first.

            If your after a game full of challenging solos, try Greatest Hits, the songs (I believe) are a lot harder to play on Greatest Hits than they are on the previous versions.

            I remember Through the Fire and Flames being unchallenging once mastered once on GH3 but it was more difficult on GH:GH.
            Also Beast and the Harlot on drums is very fun indeed!

             Best Guitar hero to date

            Top 100  Reviewer Top 10 Games Reviewer

            From the start you have everything. ultimately there is 85 songs from 83 different artists.
            you can play these when and how you want. up to four players and all four of them can choose whaever instrument they want,, 4 drummers? go ahead.
            the career consists of every song once, plus around 10 encores where you choose what song. so i dont understans the guy who said career is too short is around twice as long as GH3 and just a bit longer than world tour.

            the setlist was brilliant and very modern music with huge variety plus loads of first time artists. one problem i had with the game though is in general it was very easy for me in expert guitar, drums however proove a lot more challenging.

            the online lets you play with up to 8 players. again any instrument, in around 10 different game modes, which bring a whole new life to the game. this game is easily the most accesable game to date and easy fro player to grasp and enjoy. plus you can exprt around half of the world tour and smahs hits songs into the game for a small fee. brings a huge setlisst into play.

            Guitar Hero 2 to Guitar Hero 3 were great games.
            Amazing track list and some pretty decent metal bands and hard rock which is always fun to play (being an actual guitarist its even more fun). But as time's gone on, the GH franchise has turned to mush, bring back the challenging songs with slamming solos! The songs just don't have the feeling anymore. If you want a great game, Buy Rockband 2 (and use the Guitar Hero 4 drums and guitar and you're set), borrow RB1 from someone or rent it and install the songs to hard drive then youve got a massive playlist for RB2, and all the songs are pretty interesting towards the harder end and a few pretty good ones all over :)
