The reviews for Vicarious Visions’ attempt to adapt the Guitar Hero franchise onto the DS have been mixed. IGN for example gave the system a glowing review (9.0), and praised VV for not just cashing in on the Guitar Hero brand, and for actually producing a credible addition to the series. They described the DS Guitar grip as a great peripheral which ‘enhances the experience’. Gamespot on the other hand seemed to loath the entire system, and described the grip as cumbersome and uncomfortable, and felt the tracks lacked fidelity, and were too few in number.
It’s true that the Guitar Grip does take a bit of getting used, but even so, pulling off tricky combos is still satisfying even in the absence of a plastic guitar. No doubt some will find the whole experience flawed, but essentially, all the Guitar Hero franchise really offers you is a bit of fun interaction while you listen to the tunes you love. And in this sense, Guitar Hero: On Tour certainly succeeds, and so long as you like track list, you’ll undoubtedly enjoy the gameplay.
