What Guitar Hero titles are available for the Wii?

The Guitar Hero series hit Nintendo's Wii platform with the release of Guitar Hero 3 in 2007. The full line of Guitar Hero Wii titles includes

  • Guitar Hero World Tour (2008): This title adds drum and microphone controllers to the existing guitar controller to create a full-band experience.

Also in 2009, Nintendo released several Guitar Hero expansion games for the Wii. Special separate titles were dedicated to the guitar-heavy music of Aerosmith, Van Halen, and Metallica. Another expansion pack, Guitar Hero Smash Hits, compiles 48 of the most popular songs from other Guitar Hero titles.

What bands have been featured in the Guitar Hero series?

These video games transcend musical genres and decades by combining songs from various eras and styles of music. You'll find classic rock tunes from Deep Purple and Queen, 70s prog rock songs from Kansas, mid-2000s emo from Avenged Sevenfold, early 80s metal from Judas Priest and Iron Maiden, 90s grunge from Nirvana and Alice in Chains, and everything in between. In addition to the songs available on each disc, the later Guitar Hero Wii titles can be enhanced with additional downloadable content.

What play modes are available in Guitar Hero Wii?

Although the basic gameplay remains the same, the various titles in the Guitar Hero franchise offer different modes depending on how you prefer to experience the game. A Quest mode introduced in the Warriors of Rock game progresses through each of the available songs just as Career mode would, but it adds a unique story narrated by Gene Simmons of Kiss. Some titles have the Quickplay+ mode, in which you can immediately choose to play any of the available songs.
