Guitar Hero is back for a fifth round! How does the newest version compare to the previous ones? How does the Wii version compare to the other console versions?

Guitar Hero: World Tour definitely brought something new to the mix when it introduced other instruments, like drums, to the game. The game before that, Guitar Hero 3, however, was really nothing more than the same old game with a new song list. Luckily, Guitar Hero 5 is not like that, as it comes crammed pack with brand new features.


New Kids on the Block

One of the coolest new feature is the ability to mix and match your instruments. No longer will you have to fight for or force someone to sing or drum, you can all play your favorite part and ignore the stuff you do not like. If you want four drummers, no problem!


Also new are "Band Moments" where, if everyone in the band hits the flame notes at the same time, your band will get a bonus. As well, players can easily join in or drop out of any session, even during the middle of a song!


Wii Will Rock You

Unlike previous versions of Guitar Hero, where the Wii version was missing some stuff. This time around the Wii version will have whatever features available on Xbox 360 or PS3.


In fact, the Wii will have some stuff that the other versions will not! This includes being able to connect you DS to the game to control the lights and stage effects, play Mii Freestyle, and also Roadie Battle, where you and a partner on the DS can battle and try to sabotage each other.


Encore!

If you love Guitar Hero, getting Guitar Hero 5 is a no brainer. There are many welcomed fixes and tweaks in the game as well, such as being able to bring back bandmates that failed. New modes and multiplayer options also guarantees that Guitar Hero 5 will be the game of choice for a long time to come.
