Andrew Hayward compared Guitar Hero Live with the new Rock Band for Pixelkin, and he found a lot to love about both games.
“Guitar Hero Live really has rebooted the franchise with Live,” said Hayward. The guitar is new. It has six buttons stacked three across and it feels more like playing a real guitar.
You can play this game in two modes: GH Live and GH TV. GH Live has you playing at virtual festivals that feature video of real band members and audiences shot for the game. As Andrew says, “If you’re playing well, the crowds will cheer and scream. And your band mates will excitedly rock alongside you. Start missing notes, however, and the audience will lose interest or get upset, and your fellow players will look confused.”
GH TV allows you to play along to hundreds of music videos from a library that’s always being updated.
Guitar Hero Live is rated T for Teen. Most of the song are rock and pop, so you’ll hear the language of modern rock and pop music–partially censored but not totally clean. You’ll also see some suggestive images.
You can plug a microphone in for vocals, but you can’t play drums or bass. Guitar Hero Live is a lively guitar-centered experience.
