    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

    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

    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.
