    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 to the already very fun game
    love it

    With a heavy metal set list fitting he games aesthetic perfectly as well as being more challenging that previous Guitar Hero s', Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock is the music game we've all been waiting for. Introducing an all new quest mode and an all new feel to the franchise, Warriors of Rock let's you play the songs you love and also giving you a story to it as well. Although Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock still uses Guitar Hero 5' engine, the game still manages to look great. GH Warriors of Rock has all the game play features of the previous Guitar Hero s' as well as Party Play. Within Quest Mode, the score counter has been removed as well as the Star Cap limit. What this means is that you wont be aiming just for 5 Stars anymore but for as many as you can get in a single song. This brings a lot more to the table as it allows you to aim for your full potential and gives re playability to each song. The track list contains 93 songs and is a more metal focused set list which fits the games' theme quite well. The set list is more challenging than previous Guitar Hero s' but is still accessible to casual players though. The game still uses the standard difficulty levels from its predecessors ranging form Beginning to Expert+ (Expert+ being on drums). Another interesting new feature in GH:WoR is the new "Power Abilities", this is involved in the Quest Mode and these powers affect how you play the game as these powers can range from simple star power boosts to increasing your standard multiplier form x4 to x6. Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock is an excellent game and gives Guitar Hero Pro's a new challenge. With an excellent set list and a hand full of new Features, Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock is definitely a game that should be in your collection whether you love music/rythem games, Guitar Hero Pro or a metal lover.

    Warriors of Rock is a very good game if you're a hardcore player of music games. The game has a great setlist consisting mostly of metal songs which are very hard but rewarding to master. The Quest mode gives you powers that make playing the songs easier and giving you a better score. In the end of the quest you get to master all the powers and dominate each song. Quickplay+ is completely redesigned to let you track and beat your friend's scores. You can also import songs from almost any of the previous games to Warriors of Rock giving you all the Guitar Heroes in one game. It might be hard for a casual player to get into the game but it is certainly a great game if you're a hardcore player. Expand

    GHWOR does little to change the minds of those who thought the series was past its prime. Frankly, GHWOR could have existed as a track pack, but for what it's worth, Neversoft still manages to squeeze out some fun gameplay even if it is to the same old tune.

    If you're still a fan of music games, Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock is another good, solid entry into the series. However, while Neversoft is in a position of releasing serviceable titles every year, but don't seem capable of making real fundamental changes to how the game is played.

    Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock is a very strong attempt to do something different. With the many, many Guitar Hero games that have come out recently, this is a pretty good thing. And yet, even with all the differences, it still feels like the same old hat. Perhaps a huge fan of the series would get more enjoyment from yet another game where they can strum along to some of their favourite songs, but for others, it may just be more of the same.
