  1. With a killer track list, exciting new Quest mode, social networking, and more challenges and star rewards than most of us could ever earn in this lifetime, Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock is easily the biggest and the best installment of the franchise to date.
  2. A labor of love in every sense, Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock dares to try something new and succeeds in spades.
  3. A quest mode that is fun and interesting, diverse set lists, and the inclusion of new power abilities will definitely find a special place with fans of the series.
  4. As with every music game, it's all about the replay value, and Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock has plenty of that. I can't say enough good things about the quest mode, Party Play is shaping up to be more user-friendly than ever, and the amount of competitive and co-op gameplay options are all great fun.

    Still the game re-ignited my love for the genre and I have already shredded far more hours into this one than I had planned to invest.

    Yes it is similar to guitar hero 5 and yes it's not as innovative as it once was but the massive setlist featuring a number of greatYes it is similar to guitar hero 5 and yes it's not as innovative as it once was but the massive setlist featuring a number of great rock/metal artists- drowning pool, slipknot, megadeth, black sabbath makes it the most ideal to play. Whilst guitar hero world tour and guitar hero 5 had a broad range of music, if you are a rock/metal fan (which i am) you will absolutely love the setlist. The quest mode is funny and at times absurd but with an open mind, it is incredibly fun. The inclusion of the power abilities is also a step up for the series. I hope the next game in the series has something truly revolutionary behind it, but for now this is a great game. Full Review »

    although it has nothing new its quest mode is very fun but sometimes kind of stupid
    A LOT of songs to play and quick play+ just adds more fun

The quest was a little boring, because the beginning of the setlist was too easy, and most of the songs were bad (before the Lars chapter). But i liked these last chapters really good, because it was challenging and it was great metal/rock music.

    I was a little disappointed with the graphics, it looked so blurry in this game. Even Guitar Hero 3 was better with the graphics.

    This is a really good game if you want to play quickplay, but not the quest.
