The best thing about this game is getting together with a group of friends, cramming everyone plus all the equipment into your living room, and jamming to a great range of songs. The first time I played it was with my housemates and without realising we ended up glued to the screen from about 8 in the evening to 3 o'clock in the morning! That's not to say the single player isn't fun as well, it provides you with a great challenge especially once you've progressed onto expert difficulty, which in the past has caused me to walk away with blisters on my fingers from frantically hammering the buttons on the neck of the guitar.
You can choose from a range of characters that have popped up in previous instalments, however the create-a-character feature allows you to construct either a pretty good replica of yourself or a crazy on-stage alter-ego.
Unfortunately, the online song list is pretty pathetic in comparison to Rock Band, which means that once you've worked your way through the single player and unlocked all the tracks, things start to become a little bit repetitive.
Despite its flaws, World Tour is still a brilliant game that contains one of the most enjoyable multiplayer experiences on the market.
