-The Set List: This is entirely opinionated. If you are even considering buying this game, look up the full set list online. Personally, I think this is a great set list. It has songs I always wanted in a music game (ex. Nemesis, Burnin' for You). Beyond the songs I was excited to play from bands I either really liked (Rush, Styx, My Chemical Romance) or was at least somewhat familiar with (Queensryche, Night Ranger), the game also has songs which are funner than I expected. For instance, I originally had no expectation for Cherry Bomb, We're Not Gonna Take It, and Suffocated, but I love playing all of those songs. Overall, there are distinctly different songs which are more often than not fun to play. While there is a diverse set list, it is also more contained in the rock, alternative, metal, and punk genres (I thought GH5 was too broad).
-The Difficulty: In my opinion, the main games in the Guitar Hero series have decreased in difficulty. With Warriors of Rock, they bumped it back up. Between the Megadeth songs, Slayer, DragonForce, John 5, and Steve Vai, there are some good challenging songs. Even some of the earlier songs are hard to play like Burn and Call Me the Breeze.
-Importing Songs: Yes, there is a small fee to do this, but it is a thousand times better swapping discs or never playing songs again. You can import about half of the songs from WT and SH, about 80 songs from 5, and about 39 songs from Metallica.Read more ›
The graphics were great, though, again, this is coming from someone that mainly played the games on PS2 originally, so I'm not too used to playing them on next-gen.
The track list was great, but the play does get old rapidly. Mainly, this game, as well as the others in the series, are great for groups, but get very boring when playing solo.
Definitely recommended for fans of the rhythm game genre.
Warriors of Rock can be described as a good time. You have party mode which goes on & on. We also got Quick play which can be put into a set list, or infinite random songs which I love. The Quest mode is pretty cool & has elements of fantasy & science fiction. I really like the whole man becoming beast-like rock heroes (although I kind of wish that I could use my own characters in it, it's all cool since I can still use them in Quick play & Party mode).
Since I do not play Multi player, I'm not sure what to say about it but I'm pretty sure it's cool. I think you can play ALL the modes above in it.
Besides the Quest Mode in Guitar Hero, I'm on a Quest of my own. I have been spreading the word on requesting various Japanese artists to be on both Guitar Hero & Rock Band (Harmonix has shown a big interest in adding Japanese artists to Rock Band!). I know they are people out there that do not care for Japanese music or anything in a different langauges. But for the guys like me who grew up listening to Japanese music & buying & purchasing it from both American & Japan, it whould be a dream come true to play those songs. On Guitar Hero.com, you can find the "Request A Song" option by going to the Music option & searching for a song that can't be fund on the site which will pop up the "Request A Song" option on the top of the page. At Rock Band.com, look under Help at the bottom of the screen to find the "Request A Song" option or go to the Songs section and find it on the right side of the screen, you can also find it on Rock Band.com by searching for a song they can't be fund I think.Read more ›
