4.0 out of 5 stars Very good game, not so good song line up 19 Oct. 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Well, first of all, I'm not new to the Guitar Hero franchise. I have every Guitar Hero title that came out for the PS3, and I was looking forward to this particular one because of all the upgrades it would have to the game's mechanics. The ability to join in or drop out of a song in progress, or to pick whichever instrument you want to play for any song - no longer fighting over who's going to be the lead guitarist of the song - are only a few of the new things that make Guitar Hero 5 indeed a better game and a better product than say, Guitar Hero World Tour.

The problem is, the latter had memorable songs and lots of hits in its lineup, whereas GH5 doesn't seem to. It could be that the songs are coming from genres I'm not very familiar with or I'm getting too old and the songs are recent, but to me it seems as though - with the exception of say, 10 songs or so - the other 75 songs in the game are just mediocre and not great choices for a party game. It leaves me with an awkward feeling of wishing I had the game upgrades/mechanics of GH5 with the GHWT lineup of songs.

So overall, buy it if you have every Guitar Hero game out there and you already have squeezed everything out of the previous titles. If however you're new to the franchise, ignore this for now and start with Guitar Hero 3 or Guitar Hero World Tour.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some good improvements, but still some problems 16 Feb. 2010
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Most of you will have played a Guitar Hero or Rock Band game before. This game functions in exactly the same way - you get to pretend to be a hero on guitar, bass, drums, or vocals.

The new stuff that's great are:
* Joining in any time: excellent for when people just want to join in, no pressure. They can even drop out if they fancy it, again no worries.
* Not just a regular band line up: as already stated, you can now have duplicate instruments (or even 8 of the same) so no one needs to argue over who gets to be the vocalist. The downside to this is in the trophy set - you need 8 on the same instrument to get one of the bronze trophies, which takes a lot of co-ordinating (you can only have 4 local instruments, so the other 4 must be online players).
* Diverse tracks: the tracks are more diverse here than in previous Guitar Hero games. However, maybe it's partly due to my own tastes in music, but I feel that a lot of the tracks really suck. There are lots of songs that I feel are "middle of the road", e.g. Bon Jovi. How many more times do I have to listen to a Bon Jovi song? There's not enough rock and metal music, which is why ultimately some gamers (such as me) prefer Rock Band/Rock Band 2.

This game is still fun if you play along with friends. But the overall experience isn't great because of the tracks. Yes, you can import songs from Guitar Hero World Tour, but it only imports about half of them. I was hoping it would import "Some Might Say", but that didn't make it, neither did "Beat It" or the Joe Satriani song. In that respect, it's a disappointment - hence the average rating.

If you already have Guitar Hero World Tour, forget this game unless you're after easy trophies (although some are frustrating, but still easy in terms of skill level). It's not a bad game, but in the grand scheme of things it's also nothing special. At least The Beatles Rock Band had three-part vocals, which was something VERY new and different.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock On....er for the fifth time! 14 Sept. 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I wanna rock............I wanna rock!

Im totally incapable of ever learning an instrument, tried loads when I was a kid and through a combination of stubby fingers and a complete lack of music rhythm I failed.....miserably, my dreams of being a rock god dashed before they had even begun.

Many years past........

Then a light, cast down by the Rock gods, Guitar Hero (and to a lesser extent Rock Band which is nearly as good as the guitar hero games) Armed with the various incarnations of plastic axes (Axe = Guitar for those not in the know about Rock) I have been able to live out my Rock dreams from the comfort of my own home, I've jammed with Slash, rocked out with the Rolling Stones and head banged with Metallica.

This newest edition of Guitar Hero has a more diverse selection of tracks then the previous games there are bound to be a few not to your taste. However you should be able to find a few favourites and may be introduced to some new music you might enjoy.

The game has loads to do for the single player but really comes into its own with a group of friends allowing you to create your own digital band and take on the rest of the world in the various competitive and fun online modes.

Highly recommended

Rock On Future Guitar Heroes......Rock On!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great title 1 Nov. 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Guitar hero brings us another great experience with his 5th pack of originals. Great musics in this one, not only for the guitar, drums, but also to sing along friends who might my a little shy :P

The party modes they implemented just feel right, and do make the game way more appealing to everyone. The challenges within the campain also make the game last a little longer and more fun than the others campaing.

In overall, awesome game, with nice musics and everything they introduced new is really in the right place
