Guitar Hero 5 :: Wii Game Review

Guitar Hero 5 :: Wii Game Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Aug 27, 2009
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

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.


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.

    Banned for driving me to end the silence and driving me to say:*Coconuts are a nice fruit and it's as delicious as people think it is. In other words I don't mind if you have your own opinion. I don't mind at all. So even if you have a negative opinion on long paragraphs, I will respect that and let you know that you never need to read all of this. It's just here as part of my ban to Abbergrl. It doesn't matter if you read this because she is still banned. I have nothing against her, Abbergrl is queen. You slay grl. No pun intended. Actually it was definitely intended. Would I lie to you? Na! I should be doing something important but instead I'm doing this. All in the name of queen Abbergrl of the KW kingdom. I shall now bow down to her even though I'm banning her. What is up with me? And what is up with you? Why are you still reading this? Who knew people were so attentive? I wish I was like that TBH; how I envy you. Gah, I'd give anything. Except my family, friends, and electronics. I'd make a shout out to all of them but they won't be reading this and neither is anyone else. If you're still reading this, wow. I apologise if some of my questioning is overdone. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Maybe you lost your place in this paragraph, who knows? Maybe you lost your place in this paragraph, who knows? I love a good mystery. Ever read any mysteries and realised that the evilest looking people are never guilty? Never judge a book by its cover. Known fact: I have never screamed or cried at any movies. Known fact 2: I have written longer nonsensical paragraphs. Yeah I don't like to bore people, even though I just did, so I'll end it here. I warned you there was no point to this. Grey squirrels eat bagels but purple squirrels like knitting, why are circles round? Tulips, because 64 is not an ice cream. Oh, and coconuts for life.*
