    f you're a fan of music/rhythm games then you can't too much better than this. Small fixes to the game engine improve playability and additions such open bass note sustains and ghost notes on drums add to the experience. The setlist is top notch and just about every song deserves to be in the game unlike previous entries that had a lot of lackluster songs. The story may be cheesy but the whole thing is tongue-in-cheek and the overall atmosphere really harks back to the days of GH3. This game does what it sets out to do, please hardcore music game fans. While some will attack the lack of innovation, this game was meant to do one thing: please fans of past games. If you enjoyed GH3/GH2 you can't find another game (nor will you) that resembles them so well. RB3 is promising new features that may turn out great but WoR looks to have the best shredding available. Expand

    Anyone complaining that this game is just more of the same should first look at the Call of Duty series or Madden NFL series, offering almost identical gameplay in a new $60 box each year.
    Disregarding this, the game offers a lengthy setlist more similar to GH3 than 4 or 5, while offering new gamemodes to spice up online play, different star power / combo abilities for characters and star
    rankings designed to add replayability in quickplay mode. How much more can you add to a music game until critics think that it's a new game?
    After all, the GH team seem to be going more down the road of "this is a game, have fun" than "this is an instrument simulator, learn a ****ing instrument already" as Rock Band seems to be doing.
    If you're a fan of the GH series, especially GH3, then don't hesitate to pick this one up.

    P.S. a 20 minute Rush cd in my guitar hero? Instant buy!

    Guitar Hero Warriors of Rock is the sixth game in the Guitar Hero franchise. You play by strumming a guitar controller along to a variety of coloured frets that appear on the screen scrolling downwards. You can also plug in a drumset or microphone for an authentic band experience. While it is similar to Guitar Hero 5, it does have a lot of new features. In the main storymode, each playable character has their own bonus. These offer some clever strategies depending on the song and your playstyle. You can also do Quickplay which is when you choose exactly what songs you want to play. There’s also a custom rocker creation tool, online play and a variety of other features including Downloadable Content.

    While the Guitar Hero Franchise is over for the time being, this is still a fantastic game, and well worth picking up if you’re a fan of the previous games. They really put some effort into this one which is great.

    This isn't a bad game, but it just ends up as "yet another Guitar Hero" with the set list being the only important difference between Warriors of Rock and World Tour or GH5 or Band Hero.

    With any music, the tracks included are what can make or break a game and those featured in Guitar Hero Warriors of Rock really bring out the best, and whilst the new approach taken by Activision and Neversoft doesn't really change the core gameplay much. The music helps make this one of the most compelling Guitar Hero games to date.

    Ultimately, Warriors of Rock isn't bad, it just doesn't live up to the legacy and quality set by previous titles.
