Guitar Hero World Tour invites you to put down your guitar – and pick up a pair of drum sticks or a microphone and rock out! World Tour adds the use of percussion and vocals to the rhythmic play.
Gameplay remains true to the original with improved mechanics resulting from the expanded capabilities. A new, "Beginner" difficulty setting lets newcomers get into the game and "Easy Rhythm" allows younger members of the family to join in. Play with local or online players and climb your way to the top with Band Career mode. Take your game online and compete against other players in battle of the band competitions.
All of the songs will be derived from master tracks with bands ranging from the Eagles and Billy Idol to Sublime and Linkin Park. No more strict set lists. Instead, play gigs through your "career" and choose which songs you want to master first. World Tour takes things to the next level by allowing you to create new songs – complete with lead, bass and rhythm guitar and drums – and upload and share your tunes.
A Poor Man's Rock Band 2
Pros: They got Billy Corgan, Ted Nugent, Ozzy Ozbourne, and Zak Wylde to sign on for the game. There are a few good songs. The character and instument customization is better than RB 2. umm...
Cons: This is easily the world GH soundtrack ever. It's not horrible, but it's certainly mediocre considering that half of the songs on the disc are on the Rock Band 2 disc or their available as dlc already. Star power is a pain in the tuckus to engage on Rock Band drums. The fills are absolutely worthless. The note charts have gems where there aren't actually notes and vice versa. The career mode is just agonizingly plain, boring, and longwinded. The in-game song creater is just a miserable excuse for software. Anything done well in this game has already been done much better in Rock BAnd 2 for the most part.
Other Thoughts: I don't hate this game, but it's just far insuperior to Rock Band 2. EASILY!

Great drinking game with friends
Pros: The songs are great.
Cons: After a few drinks the notes are more difficult to hit. Seems a little easier than GH3. I normally play on hard but I can do expert on a lot of the songs.
