Guitar Hero 5


$60.00 Released September, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:No stupid career mode with money or tours - simply beat songs and earn stars to progress. Any combination of instruments can be played with other people in multiplayer - nobody is stuck doing something they don't want. Allows access to every song in Quickplay without needing to unlock them or use codes.

The Cons:Difficult to know when you're singing off key due to the small indicator. Not a required upgrade for non-die-hard fans of the genre. Broad music selection means you are sure to dislike a large portion - zero focus.
