  1. Guitar Hero's fifth installment is easily the most accessible.

    Although it may seem that Guitar Hero 5 is just an update of the last year edition, the truth is that the new features, the improvements in the interface and the track list make it the best installment of the series in the last years.
  3. Despite being a bit burned out on the whole music-game craze, Guitar Hero 5's new features and ear-pleasing track list had me strumming and drumming on the plastic instrument peripherals all over again...and having a great time doing it.

    I can guess that Guitar Hero games on the PS2 suck because of the removed features, choppy graphics, and long loading times. Don't buy any PS2I can guess that Guitar Hero games on the PS2 suck because of the removed features, choppy graphics, and long loading times. Don't buy any PS2 ported Guitar Hero game, it's not worth it. Play only the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 games. Full Review »
