Start a Band...the Guitar Hero Way

Guitar Hero World Tour transforms music gaming by expanding Guitar Hero's signature guitar gameplay into a cooperative band experience that combines advanced wireless instruments with online and offline gameplay modes including online Band Career and 8-player "Battle of the Bands," which allows two full bands to compete head-to-head online. The game features a Music Studio music creator that lets players compose, record, edit and share their own rock ‘n’ roll anthems.

The Whole Band

Be the Next Great Songwriter

Music Studio lets players express their musical creativity by giving them access to a full complement of tools to create digital music from scratch utilizing the guitar controller and drum kit. Players can create their tracks and then play them in-game or share the recordings with the entire Guitar Hero community through GHTunes. GHTunes allows other gamers from around the world to download and play the community's original tracks.

Create the Band

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. Both band and single-player careers feature non-linear progression giving artists the option to change difficulty and instruments with a variety of different gigs available at any time.

Never Jam Solo Again

Virtual musicians in need of band mates can take their careers online forming worldwide ensembles so no rock star ever has to play a gig solo. Plus, GHWT adds a "Battle of the Bands" modes, which allows eight players to join online and challenge each other band-to-band to establish global supremacy.

A Game Play Mode Just for the Wii

Jump into the "Mii Freestyle" game play mode that is unique to the Wii. Create Blues, Rock or Metal masterpieces by yourself, or join with friends to jam freely together on guitar controllers and the drum kit controller.

Customize Everything

The character creator allows gamers to create a rock star with style as unique as their own. Absolute customization from the clothes, to the facial and body structure, to the tattoos and accessories, players are encouraged to unleash their inner rock legend. 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.

A Set List for the Ages

The Guitar Hero World Tour set list is comprised entirely of master recordings from some of the greatest artists of all-time including Van Halen, Linkin Park, The Eagles, and Sublime.

Platform for Display: Nintendo WiiEdition: Game only
Since I have both games, I'll highlight the differences. First off, I bought this primarily for my kids and I to play together (I have two daughters, 6 and 14 years old).

GHWT has a "strum only" mode, so its difficulty levels are offset from those on Rockband 2 (Easy on RB2 is a bit harder than Beginner on GHWT, but easier than Easy on GHWT, for example). Singing seems to be a bit more difficult on GHWT than on RB2. The difference between difficulty of playing bass and lead guitar is greater on GHWT than on RB2 (in RB2, there are some quite difficult bass songs, whereas on GHWT every song seems much easier on bass than on lead). In both games, drumming is MUCH harder than any of the other parts. At the lower levels on RB2, singing is dead easy.

RB2 allows you to set up stand-ins for your computer-controlled players, so you can have the same band members when everyone isn't playing (for example, on very difficult songs my youngest will sit out, but I can still select "her" character as the singer, so she still feels like she's participating...also, we generally don't do the drums, but we can have the same character as our drummer, which gives us more of a band feel). There are several other subtle differences like this that give RB2 more of a roleplaying feel than GHWT.

Most importantly for those of us who are challenged in the area of manual dexterity, RB2 has a no-fail mode, which allows you to finish the song even if one of your members totally flubs it. If you're playing this as an occasional party game, or with young kids, that's very helpful.

In general, I'd say if you're more serious, looking primarily for a challenge and focused primarily on playing the guitar, GHWT is what you're looking for.

Having played Rock Band and RB2 at a friend's house for some time, we were waiting with great anticipation for GHWT as our first rhythm game purchase. I have to say that my feelings about the game are mixed now that I have played it a bit. I like quite a few of the songs, and I like the bass guitar and lead guitar parts fine, although they do raise the difficulty level from previous GH titles.

My chief frustration with the game is its vocal part. It is MUCH more difficult than RB's vocal part, and I think the way that it scores vocal performance leaves very little room for error, even at the "easy" setting. The mix seems off in many songs, making it hard to hear well enough to sing correctly, and the "freestyle" parts can be very annoying when you know perfectly well that there isn't supposed to be any vocal track in that part of the song and you have to make up something just to fill up the empty space (honestly, RB's cowbell/tambourine part makes much more sense).

I'm not "hardcore" by any stretch of the imagination; I play guitar on medium at best and prefer to 100% on easy rather than struggle through a higher level. However, since I know a lot of guys out there buy band games with their families/girlfriends/wives in mind, it seems useful to point out that the women and casual gamers in your life will be MUCH happier singing along with your band in Rock Band than in GHWT. I feel that RB's approach to vocals is easier to follow and to hear, while GHWT's is overly precise even at low difficulty levels and makes for a very frustrated singer. I would sing RB songs until I lose my voice completely and have a blast the whole time, but I get angry with GHWT after just a few songs and switch back to playing bass instead.

World Tour is easily the best music game to be issued for Wii yet.

While the game itself on all platforms has some issues with how group play is dealt with (the real strength, OTOH, of RockBand) and a few other minor problems, the Wii version is easily the best of the bunch.

Why? For one, it can easily satisfya wii owner's possible curiousity (if any) regarding Wii Music w/ World Tour's Mii Freestyle mode. Similir in implementation to Wii Music, the real difference is that unlike Music, you actually "create" music using pre-existing loops/rhythms based on how/where your control is oriented/buttons used. Works w/ or w/o guitar controllers. Surpasses the Wii Music idea by actually giving players "a point" or goal to acheive, but in a similar control manner. And does so as an essentially tacked-on Wii minigame.

My 6 yr old tried Freestyle drums (using Wiimote & nunchuck). She loved it!!

It's the 1st Wii music game to allow group online play - lacking in RockBand1 Wii (which was lacking overall). And it's the 1st to feature real DLC & an easy way to manage it using both internal Wii memory & SD cards. No need for the tedious memory shuffle one normally has to do when dealing w/ Wii's horrid data management. All done automatically in-game. DLC goes to int. memory, then game asks to transfer to SD, Later, same titles can be auto-accessed on the SD by the game. Nice!!

World Tour really pushes Wii internet capabilities to the max & does it well. Once you connect to the WFC in game, you stay connected for the duration of play. You can alwyas check for onlline Friends, hit the Music Store, find random and/or Friend online matches/battles seemlessly. Also, an in-game option allows World Tour to auto-connect to the Internet upon booting up.
