Following on from the marvelous Guitar Hero On Tour, the second in the DS franchise - 'Decades' is here at last.
Gameplay is the same as the first game, using your guitar pick to shred your way around the globe. This time though, the songs are much better:
"All Right Now" Free
"Any Way You Want It" Journey
"Are You Gonna Go My Way" Lenny Kravitz
"Buddy Holly" Weezer
"Can't Stop" Red Hot Chili Peppers
"Down" Stone Temple Pilots
"Everything is Everything" Phoenix
"Eye of the Tiger" Survivor
"Free Ride" Edgar Winter Group
"I Believe in a Thing Called Love" The Darkness
"La Bamba" Los Lobos
"The Middle" Jimmy Eat World
"No Rain" Blind Melon
"One Step Closer" Linkin Park
"The One I Love" R.E.M.
"One Way or Another" Blondie
"The Pretender" Foo Fighters
"Ready, Set, Go!" Tokio Hotel
"Rock and Roll Band" Boston
"Satch Boogie" Joe Satriani
"Smooth Criminal" Alien Ant Farm
"Some Might Say" Oasis
"Sweet Home Alabama" (Live) Lynyrd Skynyrd
"Tarantula" The Smashing Pumpkins
"Take Over, The Break's Over" Fall Out Boy
"We Are The Champions" Queen
"You Give Love a Bad Name" Bon Jovi
A veritable feast of shreddable classics here and, if you have played the previous game on the DS, you will know how much fun can be had (and, of course the resulting finger cramps you will get trying to master all these tracks).
This time, all tracks are masters so great sound quality throughout and the track list will cater for all musical tastes (and hopefully give some of these bands a much deserved boost in sales).
For those of you new to the franchise, you have to own the bundle to be able to play the game, but it is definitely worth it and is great fun for young and old. The finger cramps are worth it, I promise you!

great game, basicly the same as the first on tour game for the ds but with new options to play lead guitar or rhythm. theres two new caharacters plus alot more costumes to buy. on the downside, the game doesn't have a licence from gibson like the first game so none of the guitars in the game are real ones you could buy. but the amount of music is great and i'd really recomned it to anyone who is still looking for a genre of rock music they can really get into as theres so many dfferent bands. and the 3 secret tracks are great too!!!
