Guitar Hero 5


I’ll be the first to admit, I thought that the rhythm game genre would die on it’s button tapping arse after a few years. I’ll also admit I was wrong. I owned the very first Guitar hero on PS2 and I’ve played each one except ‘Rock the 80’s’ ever since. This includes Rock Band and it’s expansions.

After my recent playthrough of Guitar Hero Greatest Hits I have to admit I thought that, even though lacking in inspiration and flair it was enjoyable.
