    I bought the game the day it came out because I thought the first Guitar Hero on Tour was really fun; yes it was shorter than the bigger systems like xbox, playstation and the wii, but hey it's a DS game. With that in consideration I really thought the sequal would be equally as revolutionary as it predecessor; I started playing the day I got it and I wasn't let down.

The graphics looked a bit better (remember it's a DS game, it only gets so good) and it seemed like it picked up on my strokes easier than on tour. I haven't tried out its multiplayer mode yet but i'm sure that will be as good as the first one's. All in all Decades is almost the same as on Tour, just a bit more time seems to have been spent on its appearance this go-round (the black figures that were supposed to be the crowd in on tour return, but with pigments of color this time, hooray). More songs equals more fun, same grip is used (so maybe not as revolutionary), bit better graphics, 2 new characters, if you enjoyed on tour there's no reason to like Decades a little bit more.

  1. Regardless of how much polish Decades has over its predecessor, the fact remains that the DS game will never be more than a simulation of a simulation; a short-term novelty that just makes you wish you were playing the real Guitar Hero games instead.

    If you can get past the controller and don't mind sustaining permanent hand injuries, Decades is a fun, short rhythm game.
  3. Guitar Hero: On Tour Decades is a great expansion of the series on the DS.
