Yesterday’s deal on Guitar Hero 5 saw copies of the standalone game falling to £14.93 at The Hut, but for those who are looking to go the whole hog and invest in the GH5: Guitar Bundle, it’s currently down to £49.99 on HMV. Next cheapest deal comes in at around £55 from Lovefilm Shop.
The bundle deal gives you everything you need to indulge your Rockstar fantasies. You get the full Guitar Hero 5 game and the plastic guitar controller, which makes this a great deal for anyone new to the Guitar Hero series, or anyone looking to step things up a notch with the fifth edition and get an additional guitar controller. Guitar Hero 5 does allow players to have the whole band experience (bass, drums, guitar, and vocals) but thankfully you can use any combination you choose – including just four guitars – which is nice if you don’t fancy being stuck on bass or drums.
Overall, Guitar Hero 5 offers a much more accessible and streamlined gameplay experience. The game uses a juke box-type-set-list which is easy to navigate, and Activison have decided to drop all of the storyline nonsense and money bonuses, and now players can drop in out of the game as they choose, add more players and change difficulty without having to keep restarting. Essentially Guitar Hero 5 cuts things down, and focuses on what’s really important for fans of the series: pure gameplay.
