All your favourite Guitar Heroes are back on tour, but should you be lining up and paying to see them play?

Music and rhythm games have really slowed down in the last couple of years and it shows. Last year, we got a huge number of Guitar Hero games, including Guitar Hero 5, Band Hero, and Guitar Hero: Metallica. This year, there is only one Guitar Hero game, and that's Warriors of Rock.


The Fallen Hero

All the features that you loved from the previous game are still here, such as Quick Play +. However, there is not that much new to get excited about. The big thing is the story mode, which has an actual plot narrated by the legendary Gene Simmons of KISS. All the popular characters from past games have their own campaign, each with a different set of songs to play through.


In order to fight evil, the Guitar Heroes need to earn stars in the songs and transform into their animal form, which grants them special abilities. Each character has their own unique ability, like being able to build up to 5x instead of 4x or protecting your multiplier from a missed note.


The Uncertain Hero

The story is kind of silly and it sucks that you have to play through songs and earn stars in order to unlock more songs for a character. It wouldn't be so much a problem if the songs were actually fun to play through. Sure, there are a lot of songs, but some of them don't feel like they fit well with the Guitar aspect of Guitar Hero very well. Additionally, the difficulty level of the songs varies greatly at all times, making the game frustrating to play through. This may very well be the hardest Guitar Hero game ever.


In many ways, it feels like the series has taken a step backwards and there is not too much to show for it. Hopefully Rock Band 3, which is featuring the keyboard as a new instrument, will be better.

I like how some Board Games improve your thinking and tactic skills like Chess or even card games.

Darn, those are both my favorite board games, you can't make me choose! I'm a little more successful with Scrabble even at those times I get nothing but vowels. So I guess Scrabble
