Budding rock stars can live out their rock ‘n’ roll fantasies by playing either a single instrument or any combination of instruments, in addition to the full band experience. When rocking as part of a band, up to four players can jam together in quickplay or as they progress through a career.

The Rock Star Creator doesn't just allow players to build the ultimate rock god; the in-depth creators include the ability to customize guitars, drums and microphones. Adding yet another layer of personalization, gamers can create custom logos for their instruments, band, or album covers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lost and Forgotten Are the Traditional Guitar Hero Fans November 6, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Edition:Game only
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
OK, so this is a review of the game-only Guitar Hero: World Tour Playstation II game. If you're here looking to get information and feedback on the bundle version or to hear about online play, you're on the wrong product page.

This review is for those traditional Guitar Hero fans. The fans who...

1: Thought the price of a full set (nearly $200) is a little steep.
2: Play casually.
3: Do not necessarily own a next generation console (Xbox360, PSXIII).
4: Do not play online.
5: Just want to play some good songs.

This was the original targeted audience of Guitar Hero back in the day and has been up until about a year ago when Activision took over and began trying to sway the demographic to the hardcore players. The general audience of gamers who may not even have considered themselves gamers until they picked up a plastic guitar and began jamming to Carry on Wayward Son. To me, this audience has been abandoned in favor of a very specific audience that doesn't mind paying more. Marketing wise it makes some sense but along the way Activision alienated their traditional family and casual audience.

I'm sure the game is uber-fantastic on the next generation consoles with the drums, mic, and internet options but for those of us who just want to play guitar, we've been sold short.

Let us begin.

First is the soundtrack. It boasts some excellent classic songs like Beat It, which is ironic since my review on Guitar Hero 3 called for this song and everyone thought I was insane, believing the franchise should not be "Pop Hero." There are other great songs like Hotel California, Crazy Train, Eye of the Tiger, etc. There are even some decent recent ones by Haley Something and Jimmy Eats World.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive... November 1, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Edition:Game only
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Guitar Hero World Tour lives up to it's lofty expectations. The set list is LONG and diversified ranging from metal to world music to pop and country. The introduction of drums, bass and vocals greatly enhance the games long term replay value. I am really impressed with the BASS option for the game it is spot on and very fun to play. The difficulty levels now include a BEGINNER level in addition to the EASY, MEDIUM, HARD and EXPERT options. Another good feature of World Tour is the ability to toggle between difficulty levels and still continue through the same set list. There are also some new play options for guitar/bass such as continued sustain notes and open strum notes. It took me a good couple of days just to complete the game ONE time, so you really get a good bang for your buck. I have not even gotten to the create your own rocker or song creator options yet. The Bottom Line...this is the BEST title in the guitar hero series...yet...Guitar Hero Metallica is on the horizon. Highly Recommended.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
First off, I don't use the World Tour equipment. I use the wireless Kramer Striker guitar from the GHIII bundle, and I use the Rock Band drums and microphone (which work flawlessly, by the way, although the Rock Band drumkit has one less drum).

Overall, it feels like they're trying to mimic Rock Band and succeeding in some ways, but failing in others.

The graphics are a little bit better than GHIII. The drummer no longer moves like a robot, and they ditched GHIII's deformed singer. The settings are pretty nice too, especially the freaky one during the Tool songs. However, I'd say the graphics pale in comparison to Rock Band 2, or even Rock Band 1. The Rock Band games have very realistic characters, and things still seem a little artificial here. Also, the graphics on the note charts are slightly tweaked (the notes are raised a little more), but I don't think it's much better or worse than the graphics on the GHIII note charts.

Fail. Honestly, the menus are quite confusing and it's disorienting for a while. For one, some reviewers mentioned that you can only save the game if you finish the entire setlist. That's actually not true, but it's definitely easy to draw that conclusion based upon the interface and lack of instructions (note: just pause the game during a song, select quit, and the previously beaten songs will be can pick up where you left off anytime or play any of the previously beaten songs you wish). Also, without Rock Band 2's World Map, the menus don't really add to the touring-around-the-world feel that Rock Band 2 has.

In addition to mimicking Rock Band, the overall difficulty is another area where they have alienated some fans, although I personally like the change.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Drumer's Perspective November 1, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Edition:Game only
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
First of all I have played all the Guitar Hero Games and Rock Band 1 for the PS2 and I have VERY eclectic tastes in music. My skill level is Expert on Guitar, Bass and Drums on all the games. If you are interested in learning drums - you will really learn a lot of patterns, timing and co-ordination and it's cheaper and quieter than a real kit. You can easily transfer your drumming skills from the game to a live kit with a few exceptions.

Summary: If you like the other Guitar Hero Games and Rock Band there is almost no reason you will not like the newest and latest Greatest Guitar Hero game. The focus isn't on just guitar and that could disappoint some but for me that wasn't a problem at all. There are plenty of masterful and challenging guitar songs from greats like Ted Nugents, Randy Rhoads, Eddie Van Halen, Joe Satriani, Jimi Hendrix. The 3 Tool songs were worth the wait.

The Song List: 85 songs! I have played all the songs through on Hard and have started Expert. There is something on the song list for everyone. There are some fun but boring songs like Beat It by Michael Jackson and Eye of The Tiger but there are plenty of songs to keep you busy. I am a huge fan of Tool's Danny Carey so when I finally unlocked the Tool songs I was in heaven. Instead of playing a venue - there are Tool inspired graphics that flash and change colors to the songs. There is a good mix of Classic Rock, 80's, Alternative, Metal and Modern Rock and even a Willy Nelson song. I was disappointed to see a half dozen or so songs that are also on the upcoming Rock Band 2 game. Still no Zeppelin, Beatles or Floyd.

Difficulty: The difficulty level is pretty consistent all the way through the game. I can beat hard and 5 star almost everything on Drums on Rock Band 1.
