    This is a good game for those who want challenge on guitar hero. 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.

    The best Guitar Hero game in my opinion. I know I'm going to get flamed for that, but it's the truth. The best setlist out of any Guitar Hero game and great gameplay makes for the best Guitar Hero experience out there, and one of the best rhythm game experiences.

    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

    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

    guitar hero warriors of rock is the worst guitar hero game in history everything about this game is bad the quest mode is just a rip off brutal legend boring songs to much metal the quest powers are just boring and stuiped star power is nearly on all the time which ruins the game neversoft should have focused on the music instead of the gimmicks plus rock band is way better than guitar hero in every way Expand

    Fun, and there's a lot of things I like more about Guitar Hero than Rock Band (you only need to play a song both series have, like Bohemian Rhapsody or Whip It, and watch the performances to see the Guitar Hero devs cared about having shout-outs to the music videos for those tracks while Rock Band's band members do generic performances for everything and you can often see people playing their instrument while they shouldn't be doing anything). But the quest mode and powers, while an interesting idea, don't really do anything for me. Quickplay+ is good. On the whole, if I'm playing my GH library I will play it in WOR instead of GH5... but not by as big a margin as it should have been. And it's annoying that about 15 of the best songs in GH5 don't even import into WOR! Activision's legal team obviously did an appalling job on the licensing! Expand

    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.

    Sadly, the addition of a so-called "quest mode" does nothing to hide the same old flaws that have been present for the last several iterations of the Guitar Hero franchise. Activision continues to simply milk the brand name for all its worth, and does nothing to innovate, improve or expand the game into something worthwhile. If this has been their first release...perhaps the game would warrant a 5 or a 6, but they've been in the business of making rhythm games for too long now, and should know better. Their stunning lack of quality and polish, the narrowly-focused playlist, the overcharted tracks and general disregard for the music itself...not to mention the focus on nothing but getting a high score... This new Guitar Hero is just a sad copy of the last few that came before it. If you honestly enjoy music (and not just high scores), then save your money and pick up something like Rock Band 3. You'll be much happier for it in the long run. Expand

    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 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. 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.
