To be honest, I'm really new at Guitar Hero stuff.. if I stumbled upon this great game was because I heard there were some of my favorite rock songs from my early teenage years... Nirvana, Rammstein, Blur, BON Jovi, among others.
Graphics - Graphically the game is the best in the series for the ps2, you can create your own hero customize it with a lot of unlockable content as well, and it looks very slick while you're hammering you're favorite tunes. Though I still have to acquire the Metallica for PS2 as well, I have heard it's the best, I'll put that to the test in my next review. 8/10
GamePlay/Controllers - Hmm.. I was really skeptical that a Ps3 guitar would work on the long gone ps2 system, but to my surprise it's probably the best feeling of the guitar itself that made me stick with it. It has just around the perfect weight and level of difficulty for a guitar, though as I have mentioned earlier I am very new at this.. but I started playing out in medium and so far I'm loving it.. The Controllers are really responsive and I've been almost 10 feet away from the tv and the wireless usb adapter does the job exceptionally. 10/10
Content - The track-list is to me the most enjoyable, there are also a lot of unlockable characters, Santana Kurt Cobain, Shirley Manson, etc,. I have plaid around half of the game and I am very impressed with the songs available. Who doesn't love Teen Spirit by Nirvana?? or Song # 2 by Blur.. or who wouldn't want to go crazy jamming Du Hast by Rammstein.. we also have a few from The White Stripes. my son's favorite song from Flushed Away also, Dancing with My Self from Billy Idol, and also another great track from Gorillaz, Feel Good, Inc. Overall there's a song for everyone in the game. though I'm not a really knowledgeable rock fanatic I really love most of the tracks in the game, but probably the one that does it for me,is In My Place by ColdPlay, such an awesome feeling that track. I give it a 9/10 for content.
Extras - The Game itself has a ton of extra stuff to unlock (I've named a few so far) but there's plenty of stuff to do, and probably the coolest thing after World tour is that you can hammer with 3 more of your buddies and have 2 guitarists and 2 bassists, which makes me much more enjoyable and watch them raw at each other when someone goes off key.. (it's hilarious seriously!!) 8/10
Overall - I guess I came a bit too late on the Guitar Hero era, but even though I paid about a quarter of the retail price (which msrp goes for 89.99 bucks) I probably would have paid it in full.. it is well worth it. For those mates out there who have any of the next gen console, it's really well worth the penny..
Hope this was helpful, but afterall anyone can say what's wrong and what's bad, but for some it might be the other way around, so I suggest to get it if you can find it, since it's becoming a rare title if you can.
Overall Score - 9/10
Even though it's a brand new released game for the ps2, it's pretty good, but the gameplay and the new features are different for the ps2 version, but it's a great game. it has a pretty good setlist and cool features for the new GH5 game. plus, since my dad loves carlos santana from santana, it makes this game also great, and i also like the awesome rockers from popular bands like kurt cobain from nirvana, johnny cash from his own name as a band name, and matt bellamy from muse. BTW 6 stars = FC (Full Combo) to make sure it's a REAL FC! :)
Guitar Hero 5's track list contains 85 songs by 83 separate artists, and like previous Guitar Hero games, several musicians with works in the game have been modeled through motion capture for avatars in the game, including Johnny Cash, Carlos Santana, Shirley Manson, Kurt Cobain, and Matthew Bellamy. The game continues to support the user-created music studio introduced in World Tour through GHTunes, and additional downloadable content for the game will be made available. A majority of existing downloadable tracks from World Tour are forward-compatible with Guitar Hero 5, along with selected tracks from World Tour and Guitar Hero Smash Hits.
The game was well-received by reviewers who appreciated the improvements in the accessibility of the game, allowing players to immediately jump in and play without spending excessive time in the game's menus. Improvements to both the Career and competitive multiplayer modes were also highlights of the game. However, the game's track list was considered to be too broad, that while players will likely find a number of songs they enjoyed, they would also likely enough find a number that they would not like, and some controversy arose over the inclusion of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain in the game.
One of the best things that Neversoft has done with Guitar Hero 5 is to make it just as easy to navigate the menus as it is to enjoy the game itself. This may not seem like such a big deal, but in practice it makes everything about the game more enjoyable. A layer of frustration has been stripped away from nearly every aspect of this game. Not only will your parents be able to understand how to play the game, now they'll be figure out how to get into the game, too.
This is most noticeable in the all-new Party Play mode. Everyone who has thrown a party with Rock Band or Guitar Hero World Tour has at least one memory of new players having trouble logging in, choosing instruments, and making sure they've selected the right difficulty for their skill level. We've all been there and it isn't any fun. Party Play does away with this in a most agreeable way. As soon as you turn Guitar Hero 5 on, the game simply starts playing through your library of tunes. It acts like a jukebox of sorts. If any song catches your ear, all you have to do is pick up an instrument and hit a button to start playing. You can change difficulties, drop in or out, add other players, or even skip to another song without the music ever stopping.
If somebody is already playing guitar and you don't want to be stuck with bass, no worries. Any combination of instruments can be used. Set up your own guitar army or get everyone in the room singing harmonies -- it's your call. Party Play and letting people use what instrument they want sound like such simple concepts you'll start wondering why it took this long to get these features in. But hey, they're here now and they really do add a lot to the fun.
The Career mode has received a similar makeover in the name of accessibility. It's hardly even a career anymore. There's no more money to earn or tour to take part in and there isn't any story to speak of. Instead, you'll simply work your way through a few lists of songs, unlocking new gigs and other goodies along the way. There are no separate careers for each instrument or difficulty. It's all in one place and it's based around earning stars. To add a bit more depth, every gig has its own bonus challenge that enables you to earn a few extra stars.
This layout does several good things. Most importantly, it allows you to switch difficulty settings, instruments or band members without restarting your career. You won't reach the end of the Career on Expert, realize you simply can't beat it, and then have to go back and replay through the whole shebang again on Hard. The challenges also give you reason to go back and replay an old song to complete various objectives. Challenges include things like strumming up as many times as you can, using the whammy bar as much as possible, or hitting a certain score with a full band. Each song has one, and you'll earn the stars and unlock the bonus associated with it if anybody in your group meets the requirements -- so you can work through the game with an online band playing only guitar and still get everything.
For the over improvements made to GH5 from WT makes the game worth a buy (if your into music synth. games) With more features and game mode's it made the game funnier than just play a song, record the data and pick a new one.... With these features they also pumped the basic career up with earnable game objects but have challenges to unlock if it be on Bass too playing Drums or Singing(this for some killed the game since certain people WILL not notice how i say WILL; play bass or sing some people are just stuck in their own ego's)
For multiplayer its great with new modes and ability to switch up band members, the only downfall is after the 7mounth of being released the populations online have dropped highly, mostly now only finding people for Quick play, finding 2+ people for Rockfest,Band VS Band, Face-Offs are very low low populated so if achievements are your thing than these 4-6 are going to be hard unless u has friends to boost.)
For the Achievements they are pretty up straight and forward, some easy some hard. For a small example some hard ones are playing a song as 4 Bass or 4 Vocal (you'll understand why these are hard to do if your a GH player from the past lol.... but over all its mostly game play related so you gotta play the game to unlock your skill and knowledge will help unlock more)
Overall : very happy when i bought GH5, game play and graphics are soo much better than previous GH titles, and over and out-do Rockband games. The DLC which is growing every month has been getting better for selections but still personally am finding lot's of people on WT and 5 with no DLC....... fyi my GH5 list is 224songs) And now that you can find the game cheaper and or used at better prices, you really cant go wrong unless your not a Music Synth.
