4.0 out of 5 stars Great Game, Terrible Guitar, September 30, 2010
By 
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock (Guitar Bundle) (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Thankfully, Guitar Hero has finally lived up to its name for the first time since Guitar Hero 3. There are 93 new songs, and almost all of them are geared towards guitar. There is still the full band option, but unlike gh5, gh smash hits and gh world tour the priority is a good song for guitar. Warriors of rock has songs by classic bands like aerosmith, bu also has newer ones like linkin park and muse. Also, Activision put on a hard song by dragonforce, which makes the game infinitely more fun. There is about 6-10 hours of gameplay on quest mode, so even if you try to finish as fast as you can it still takes you several days. One small problem with so much gameplay is that you can't actually play the hard songs on quickplay until you have passed them in quest mode, a week after you got the game. But overall the game is very fun to play, and if you haven't bought a guitar hero game since gh3, or even if you are just starting, i would definitely recomend getting the game. But DO NOT get the guitar.

The guitar is the reason why this is a four star review and not a five star one. The guitar works great; it has a fast whammy bar, good strumbar and a slightly smaller neck than other guitars, and it looks much better than others. However, three hours into playing the game, my strum bar, which Activision called a "shredders best friend" completely broke. It neither up strums nor down strums. Useless. Luckily I have an older guitar that still works, and 90 day warranty means I can return the guitar and get another one, but it was still very disappointing. Maybe it was just my guitar that didn't work very well, but if you have another working guitar I would strongly recommend you buy the game alone.

Overall, I would say that the game is second best in the whole guitar hero series; I would recommend it for both hardcore and casual players, but if at all possible do not get the guitar.

Honestly I have had my guitar for a long time now and it works, I even play customs with the guitar, things that make on disc songs look like lol easy, this guitar actually works great as long as you break it in first with some slower songs, then the strum bar wont break too easily, the only thing I have had trouble with on this is the guitar shuts off occasionally when I am tapping
