According to the Hotukdeals thread, copies of Guitar Hero: World Tour have been spotted for as little as £14 in store at Tesco. However if your local branch has sold out or failed to even stock it in the first place - it’s definitely nowhere to be seen in my local Tesco Metro – the cheapest price currently going online is £19.98 from Game. This gives you a nice saving on the next best offer of £24.99 from Gameplay.,
The World Tour edition sees the Guitar Hero franchise stepping into the realm of Rockband and allowing players to incorporate drums, vocals and bass for a more socially inclusive band experience. Although it is possible to buy the game as a bundle pack with all of the instruments, World Tour is compatible with the musical hardware from Rockband. If the reviews are anything to go by, the Rockband series of instruments are actually a much safer bet, as the Guitar Hero apparatus is prone to malfunction, and not very resilient when it comes to weeks of prolonged and intensive gameplay.
The sequel has also had a visual make over: the in-game graphics are smoother and the vocals are mimed with much greater accuracy by the virtual singer compared to Guitar Hero 3. There is also the opportunity to create your own tracks with an inbuilt music programme. Quite a few reviewers gripe about how difficult this is to use, but anyone out there familiar with programs such as Propellerhead’s Reason won’t be too far out of their depth. Aside from these features there are a massive array of new tracks with everything from Micheal Jackson, to Oasis, to Jimmy Hendrix, to The Doors etc.
Despite the imminent release of Guitar Hero 5, the song selection featured by World Tour means that this sequel will continue to be sought after by many Guitar Hero fans. However, if you can wait, the price of World Tour is bound to slashed further in the coming months.
