Product Description

Product Description

Great Games and Accessories for the Xbox 360 from Gamesbuyer.

Manufacturer's Description

The game that started the modern music phenomenon is back, with more songs, more bands and more party game action. Just like Guitar Hero: World Tour you can play as a whole band with your friends, with lead guitar, bass, drums and vocals all working together in the same song.

The game that changed the way the world interacts with music is back
New RockFest modes bring lots of new ways to play
Now you can play any combination of instruments you want, whenever you want
Being a rock god is more of a team effort than ever

What's new for Guitar Hero 5 though is that anyone can play any combination of instruments, so you can have four lead guitars if you want or even swap roles mid song. As a result each individual has their own Star Power meter and it's up to the best players to save others if things go wrong.

To encourage even more co-operation there's also the new Band Moments bonus, which doles out big rewards if every member of the team can complete a section together. With the RockFest feature adding tons of new game modes as well this is the best value Guitar Hero yet.

Key Features
  • Monster of rock: The biggest Guitar Hero yet with new ways to play, new rewards and the biggest line-up of master recordings ever seen.
  • Jam with the band: Party Play option lets players join or leave a song whenever they want, or even change instruments or difficultly level mid-song.
  • Rock festival: New game modes including Momentum, which changes the difficultly as you play, and Elimination, where the weakest link player is dropped if they mess up.
  • Special moments: New "Band Moments" offer big rewards if everyone can co-operate for a set stretch of rock perfection.
  • Hall of fame: A record-breaking 85 songs by 83 different artists, including The White Stripes, Arctic Monkeys, Johnny Cash, Tom Petty and more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Everythings better just not the setlist 14 Sept. 2009
By JetsG.
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Like the new features and avatar use, overall a nice improvement from world tour; however the setlist lets its down a bit. Theres some great songs, but most majority just bore me im afraid- next year if improved again thats great, but they gota do something about these slowly dying setlists.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am an absolute mental fan of guitar hero. My loving boyfriend bought this brilliant addition for me this Christmas and here are my views.

Pretty much every improvement that could have been made, was! The character creation is still a brilliant addition, now allowing you to play with you xbox avatar if you wish. You can now also comprise your own band to play through career mode with, whether it's your own creation or you wanna be in a band with the greats such as Kurt Cobain or Matt Bellamy:) I did however miss the character presence option from World tour although this didn't affect the gameplay!

For each venue on the last 1 or 2 songs, you get to select you own song from the setlist provided to play through. This, I thought was brilliant until I found that it seems you are on a timelimit to pick the song, and if you havn't got the one you want from the list by the time it runs out, you then have to play whatever song you had highlighted. This sucked a bit to be honest but again, not enough to put one off.

The song list for the game itself I thought had both good and bad points. The obvious good point being, that they have made a lot more songs availiable in this game. I did find however that GH5 had a distinctly 'new' song feel to it whereas the older ones had more of the classics available. This however is my own personal taste not everyones and although I love seeing all those brilliant new ones available I still love the retroness of the oldies and would have liked to see more variety of well known old tracks.

My last little natter is about the X-box live function. This is always brilliant on guitar hero but I found some of the modes to be slightly confusing when in play and not as user friendly as say GHWT.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I am not saying that I dislike this game.. just they haven't done anything amazing to deem the price tag.
The track list is poor, and no I am not going to moan about being able to play as Kurt Kobain and playing an Elton John song.. its a game.. thats what games are all about. Having fun!

GH 5 is good, its "party play" is great fun. just jump in and out of the action.. however there is one slight proble, with the "powersaving" of the instruments, when someone has had enough and sits out.. and the guitar / controller turns itself off.. and others are still playing you get the "Please Reconnect Controller" message displayed on screen which is frustrating.

The ability to all play as the same instruments, yes this is great.. unless you want to do the challenges in career. Although I have all the instruments (x2 Guitars, Drums and Mic) of course everyone who has the guitar wants to play Guitar.. no one wants to play Bass (kinda like a real band really) and because I already had one drum kit break on me.. people are too gentle to play the drums, as they don't want to risk breaking them, as after all it is technically a toy.

Great fun though for people new to the games, however for GH veterans.. you might want to steer clear, this is just another Money grabbing venture, there is only a small handfull of decent songs.. but then thats my opinion.

Apart from the "no fail - party drop in-drop out play" this game doesn't really have a lot to offer compared to the other games.

Note to Red Octane / Activision.. just concentrate on releasing expandable track lists, (like the Rock Band song packs) or even better.. have a proper store (again like Rock Band) so we can download tracks we want! Not just tracks you think we want.

Which reminds me..

2.0 out of 5 stars just OK 5 Nov. 2009
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
my first review and absolutly need to share my impressions on this game!

i'm playing gh games since guitar III and got to say i love it so when activision announced gh 5 i was very excited.

first time i played i found the career mode interesting and very different from the other GH. But for the rest i must say i am very disappointed. First graphics are not as good as world tour (but it is not really important for these kind of games) (installed it on HDD and takes 5 + Gb, World tour takes 7 + GB, I miss many notes and i don't know why even if go in the sounds and video settings and finally the track list which is not amazing( i'm not a heavy metal fan)

Overall even the avatar in the game and the fact that four players can play the same instruments make you forget the points mentioned above.

3.0 out of 5 stars Guitar Hero 5 Is Dead... 7 Nov. 2011
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This is by far the worst Guitar Hero game I've ever played. I have Guitar hero 3, Guitar Hero: World Tour, Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, Guitar Hero: Metallia AND Guitar Hero: Van Halen!!

There's just nothing to do on it. You play through all the songs once and there's nothing to achieve. I didn't think that the 'career' was very good at all. All you're trying to do is get medals on all the songs, which requires having not only a guitar, a microphone also, and an official GH drum set. If you're interested in getting it 100% you won't do so without having people to play it with because nobody really bothers online anymore!
