Guitar Hero World Tour (X360) Pay For My Homework

Product image

Today we take a look at the true sequel to Guitar Hero III, Guitar Hero World Tour.  For the first time in the franchise the game offers options to play the drums and sing, as well as mashing your fingers on the fretboard with bass or guitar. Is this a poor counterpart to Rock Band or a great standalone title in its own right?

Additionally there is now a new mode which has notes connected by a semi transparent blue bar which looks like it is made of string. When these appear you can play these notes like normal or just hit the buttons on the neck without strumming. This is quite similar to hammer-ons, but the difference is that if you miss the notes you don’t need to strum once to re-initiate the sound to the amplifier. It works in a similar style as if you were on stage with the amplifier and pick up very high so hitting the strings with a plectrum (or your right strumming hand) isn’t needed.

If you have one of the new World Tour guitars however you now have a touchpad section which is colour coded to match these sections so you can play them either by touching the colour coded sections or by sliding your finger up and down to match the subsequent notes (creates a wah-wah style effect). You can also tap the bar to strum a note to fake a tapped solo hammer on style or you can hit it with your thumb like you would when slapping a bass.

While this certainly adds a lot of variation to your playing style I personally found it rather hard to nail solos however I am sure with some perseverance (and skill) it would make some of the more difficult sections slightly easier to play.

The GHWT drums are slightly different to the Rock Band kit. There are three drum pads, two cymbals and a kick pedal. If you are used to the Rock Band drums it might very well take a bit of getting used to and my friend (who plays drums for a band in Seattle) says the positioning alone of the cymbals above the pads is a much better layout to mimic a real set. The kick pedal is adhered to the ground with a sticky substance but it tends to move around a little without a bar holding it in place.

The vocal aspect of the game works just as expected and you are given the option for static or flowing lyrics which should help cover more bases for a wide audience of people. Guitar Hero World Tour also provides options to create your own music … you can record all the instruments and then upload them for other people to try.

To download these creations you head over to GH Tunes (a cut down copy of Apples’ Itunes) and you can search in genre, most highly rated, top artists. When you preview a track it downloads to your computer then plays and as they are small files this all happens in a few seconds. Once you have the ones you like downloaded they appear in your track list just like any other track.

This creator is in two parts, the GHMix and the Recording Studio. Four people can record at once in the studio and you can patch in at any time to record or play on the fly. Pressing start brings up a menu of options where you can switch instruments, change effects and set scales.

The GHMix section lets you adjust fine control over the recordings and it all works pretty well except for an issue with lag, which I worked out is just under a second. I also found the interface rather confusing and convoluted so I didn’t spend as much time in this as I would have otherwise. The lag was also a nasty issue that ruined some recordings for me, especially as I am not the most patient of people. It also doesn’t help that everything you create sounds like a midi file…..

Guitar Hero World Tour is a fun game to play on your own or with buddies, but it is pretty hit and miss in some areas. The music creation tool is rather disappointing and nothing ever ends up sounding good, this is not helped by the lag and complex menu configuration which confuses and frustrates. As another Guitar Hero, it is certainly entertaining and a great party game but I can’t help but feel that Rock Band is the more polished of the two. The track list is pretty decent however.

More of the same but with Rock Band style multiplayer.
No more robotic drummers and the graphics are colourful. Nothing out of the ordinary however.
The track list is quite strong but the music creator is weak and frustrating.
If you played the other games and like Rock Band you will get something from this, just don’t be expecting anything ground breaking. Citations Pour Une Dissertation Overall

Good fun with friends but I can’t help but wonder how much life is left in this series.
