We just got Guitar Hero 5 yesterday, and so far I have to say that I’m really impressed. I’ve played every version of Guitar Hero and Rock Band that has come out. They’re pretty high on my list of favorite games. However, when Guitar Hero World Tour came out, I wasn’t particularly pleased with it. I didn’t like the way the controls responded, it somehow seemed “clunky” to me. I just didn’t have as much fun playing it as I did all of the others.
So far it seems that this time around, Neversoft has fixed all of the problems that I had with the last game. The controls are just as smooth and responsive as the Guitar Hero I used to love. Plus the addition of allowing multiple people to play the same instrument is awesome. Whenever I played with friends, it was always a race to choose “Guitar”. Now it doesn’t matter. If we all want to play the same part, we can.
Also, thanks to Lisa, we have the best band name ever. Keep an eye out on the leaderboards for “Unsigned Band”. We will rock your face right the fuck off. No lie.
