Warriors Of Rock

So what can you expect from this one? The same old winning Guitar Hero formula that's what! Coloured musical notes descend down the screen and you have to hit them to build up your score. Ultimately, you will become addicted to it at some point, so you can expect your hand to look like a misshapen claw after a while. Unfortunately, it doesn't really add anything to the series, which is a little bit of a shame. If you head on over to Game you can grab a PS3 copy of the game for £9.99, which is almost £2 cheaper than the next best offers coming in from DVD.co.uk, 101cd, and Blah DVD.

Guitar Hero is dead. It has ceased to be. Except that you can now grab the complete band kit for Warriors Of Rock, turn up the volume and pretend that you're back in the days when plastic peripherals reigned supreme. For your money, you'll receive the game, guitar, microphone and drums - making this a massive saving and a heap of compatible gear. You can use the kit with Rock Band 3 as well, don't worry.

Thanks to kikssai for finding the HMV listings, which have been sneakily price-matched by Amazon. As usual.

The Guitar Bundle is now £3 cheaper than before over at Amazon and it's in stock. I just impulse bought it for the second axe, but rest assured, Warriors of Rock is a fine return to form for the series and a fitting epitaph, even if it does overcomplicate things at times. Still, it gets double points for having The Best Song Of All Time on its playlist...Deep Purple's 'Burn'. A double Rimmer salute for globalkilla.

Guitar Hero is dead, but Warriors Of Rock isn't the game that killed it. In fact, it's one of my favourites, and a serious return to form after the poorly-spaced GH5 and World Tour. This deal will save you a fair few quid on the guitar bundle that contains the obscene new axe, Rush's 2012 album, a voiceover from Gene Simmons and a silly, stupid, awesome quest to power up your characters into bona fide rock warriors. It's overtly dumb, but it's my kind of fun.

It may have been only a few days since I last posted this deal but Amazon have knocked another £5 off the price of this bundle, making it an even better deal. Wii owners can prepare to rock out with plastic guitars once again as the latest in the Guitar Hero franchise. While Neil’s review goes into far more detail it is, as always, more of the same colour matching fun set to a rocking soundtrack with story and multiplayer modes to keep you entertained into the early hours. It’s not much of an evolution for the series or the genre in general but at the same time it doesn’t stray from the formula that made it popular in the first place. Thanks to stuart9787 @ HUKD!

If you decided to skip yesterday’s deal because it came without a guitar peripheral then you’re in luck, because Amazon are offering the bundle for a great price for Wii owners.

Sales suggest that the music/rhythm genre has been dying a slow and painful death over the past year or so, but that didn't stop 2010 from producing some of the finest exponents of the genre yet. Activision released arguably the best Guitar Hero since GH3, Rock Band 3 broke down the wall between gaming and being that guy at the party, and Def Jam Rapstar finally proved that it was possible to do hip-hop oriented karaoke without being a wild inaccurate pile of rubbish.

And then there was the dancing. You can refresh yourselves with one of the videos after the jump. I fear they'll be burned into my memory (and YouTube) for many many years to come.

Bundling the classic guitar controller, the drum set, a microphone and a copy of the game, this deal for the Full Band Bundle of Guitar Hero 6: Warriors of Rock is pretty special. For just under sixty quid, you'll net all the above. Purchased separately, I imagine you could be edging close to a hundred pounds for all the different controllers and the game, so for any aspiring virtual rock stars I advise going with Amazon. I was quite obsessed with Guitar Hero in the first year at uni, until in a mad rage I smashed the guitar against the wall. Sadly, it could not be saved.

Platforms: PS3 (reviewed) | X360

Developer: Neversoft

Publisher: Activision

For those about to rock, we suggest you find a comfy chair.

The first thing to hit about this latest sequel / revamp of the classic living room rocker is the multi-MB download that greets you. Followed by, if memory serves, another three odds and sods that come through – it’s not that I lost count, more that I was using the time to make several cups of tea and have a biscuit. Mind you, I could have made my own biscuits in the 75 minutes or so this all took.

Guitar_Hero_Warriors_of_Rock_-_Quest_Mode_Map

I know it all adds to the game experience in the end, but when you’re confronted with a new rock “axe” and the latest Guitar Hero game, call me a big kid but, well, I want to play. Not terribly well, not terribly quickly, not very often above “medium” level but play nonetheless.

So, after the necessary downloads were sorted and the new axe was linked up – and, yes, alright, after I’d pulled a few Rock God poses in the mirror while wearing it – it’s into the game. And, despite the addition of a “Quest” story mode – with narration from Gene Simmons – it’s pretty much business as usual, which is either a very good thing if you’re in the “if it ain’t broke...” camp or a very bad thing if you expect a little more innovation for your hard earned cash.

Guitar Hero Warriors of Rock - Warrior Lars--article_image

The quest mode is pretty much based around the normal Guitar Hero / Rock Band activities. After laying through certain songs and gathering enough stars, your chosen player is transformed into a “Warrior of Rock” and given their mission to save, er, rock. This is given a little back story in an earlier cut scene but, frankly, it doesn’t really matter. It’s a case of pick up guitar, thrash the hell out of it, wonder how your fingers moved that quickly – if they don’t use this game for hand surgery rehabilitation I’d be very surprised – and proceed through more challenges. And then, when you’ve completed it and unlocked the rest of the game – almost as long again and with even tougher bits of thrash metal etc to master – you can go back and proceed through those challenges.

Zavvi have boasted the cheapest preorder price for Guitar Hero 6: Warriors of Rock for a while, but they've now shaved another couple of quid off of the price. I was lucky enough to rock out to this at Gamescom- and as I said in the preview, it's really shaping up nicely. Activision are leaving Rock Band to dominate the 'start a band and work your way to stardom' formula... and are instead letting us become ridiculous Rock Gods on an insane crazy mission. Well worth checking out at this price. Thanks to judge dredd at Hot UK Deals.

We're excited for Guitar Hero 6. After Rock Band redefined and dominated the 'start a band and work your way around the world' formula, Guitar Hero was left floundering around without much of a focus. However, Guitar Hero 6: Warriors of Rock will be going back to its roots... with ridiculous rock & roll, solos and crazy arenas. We'll be recruiting a crack team of rockers that can be powered up into insane fantasy archetypes, and basically not taking ourselves too seriously. Which, let's face it, is what we really want from a music game. If you don't need or want the new axe peripheral, this is the cheapest deal around.

I love Guitar Hero.

Plastic guitars and raucous drunken nights played a key role in defining my university experience, so naturally I was keen to try out Neversoft's upcoming addition to the series. Both World Tour and GH5 suffered from attempting to emulate Rock Band and losing a dedicated singleplayer aspect... and disastrous 2009 sales forced Activision to rethink their publishing strategy. Warriors of Rock is therefore set to be the only main Guitar Hero title of the year... and by playing to the franchise's strengths, it's shaping up to be absolutely incredible.

Guitar Hero has gone back to its roots: strong guitar tracks, ridiculous solos and the feeling of genuinely being a guitar God in your own living room. The concept of starting a band and working through a world of themed setlists has been well and truly handled by Rock Band, so Warriors takes an entirely different tack. A massive and accessible freeplay mode allows any combination of instruments to take part in a cooperative and competitive gametypes- and an entirely new singleplayer mode allows solo rockers to engage in a deep and unashamedly silly campaign.

The graphics engine remains unchanged, but the gauges have been moved directly onto the scrolling neck of the guitar. It's less cluttered and more accessible than before, with players able to ambiently view their star power without taking their eyes off of the action. The window for hitting notes correctly is still refreshingly wide and avoids the “come on, why didn't I get that one” moments that Rock Band's twitchy inputs frequently provide.

The engine remains the same... but read on to see how Warriors of Rock changes for the better!
