    All the quality and expertise that you'd expect from Activision has gone in Guitar Hero for the iPhone and is easily the premier rhythm game for your mobile device.

    It is without a doubt one of the best mobile music games out there.

    It won't blow your mind, but it will keep you busy during your next, "I'm bored and I need to kill time!" moment.

    Guitar Hero is a solid music/rhythm game that comes with a good selection of songs at an affordable price.

    It plays well, the strum and whammy gestures are great features, and the music catalog is solid. The reliance on DLC gives me pause, but the market will surely make that decision.

    New gameplay touches make Guitar Hero relevant on iPhone, even if the lack of multiplayer and single-player setup are less than ideal.

    But with a miserly six songs present in the set list (versus 28 songs in the marginally more expensive Rock Band), and a pathetic selection of songs in the store, it hardly hits the ground running.
