Featuring a set list comprised of 28 master tracks from influential artists including Coldplay, Fall Out Boy, Tenacious D, The Strokes and Weezer, Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits expands on the innovative Guitar Hero gameplay on the Nintendo DS by introducing an all-new Fan Request system that challenges players to jam like never before. Fret board fanatics can once again unleash their inner rock stars anytime, anywhere as they hone their shredding skills and jam to face-melting modern rock tracks from the last five years in Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits.

Do it for the fans - Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits delivers an all-new gameplay experience with Fan Requests.

Rock out anytime, anywhere - Fans can take the Guitar Hero experience wherever they go with Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits. The Guitar Hero Guitar Grip mimics a guitar fret board and fits seamlessly in people's hands to deliver the same core gameplay that defines Guitar Hero.

  1. Guitar Hero: On Tour Decades is a great expansion of the series on the DS.
  2. Essentially, it’s the setlist that will sell you on Modern Hits. The new features don’t add much to the experience, but it’s still a fun game that gives you that dose of Guitar Hero on the run you crave.
  3. Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits is made for the Guitar Hero fan.
  4. The improved graphics do make the game more pleasing to look at when you actually get a chance to drift your gaze away from the fret board. However, constant repetition of songs makes the set list obnoxious after awhile – even the songs that you do like.
  5. It's hard to recommend Modern Hits to anyone who has either played the other On Tour titles, it's just so similar to the previous titles.
  6. Too little evolution from past GH games.
  7. We're not completely humourless, and the whimsical silliness of game, particularly the guitar duels, still raise a smile; but the first On Tour did that too, and it was considerably more fun.

The gameplay is sweet, the graphics seem more lively, the career is much more difficult (yet, more fun), and it's overall a great gaming experience. The setlist is pretty good too. Therefore, I rate this a 10. Expand

    When I first heard about this game I was really excited for this, and now that I have it I knew that getting it was worth it. With 28 When I first heard about this game I was really excited for this, and now that I have it I knew that getting it was worth it. With 28 song's from the last few years, improved strumming, a grip style in which you just put your thumb through the strap which doesn't make your hand cramp, a fan requests system, and improved graphics this is truly a great guitar hero on tour.

    I have been a GH freak for the past few years, I own all the titles on the 360 and LOADS of DLC, and after enjoying the previous two Guitar I have been a GH freak for the past few years, I own all the titles on the 360 and LOADS of DLC, and after enjoying the previous two Guitar Hero on tour games on the DS, I think that they have missed the plot here. The entire game on expert is just 3 note chords and weird strumming patterns, with little HOPO being used. I have never cared about graphics I just want a game that is fun to play, and this installment was a major disappointment for me. I have already sold off my copy. Sum it up in one word? Horrible.
