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.
Pros: Significant improvements over GH 2 and 3. All songs are original recordings, no covers. Set list quality varies with music preference, although personally I find it amazing and extremely entertaining. There are also pre-made custom songs like Joplin's Maple Leaf Rag and Mozart's Rondo Alla Turca and an entire suite for creating your own songs. A few other improvements include better placement of the streak note counter, the ability to pause in the middle of the song and wait 4 seconds before starting again, breakdowns of what you're getting paid for, new bass slaps, battle mode, much better functionality with respect to customization of characters and bands, and generally it has more features all around. You will definitely enjoy playing this game if you like the guitar aspect of Guitar Hero and you like at least 5 of the songs on the set list.
Cons: Fonts are much smaller, sometimes hard to read. Customizations and options can be a little overwhelming. Loading time has increased slightly. Cooperative multiplayer mode has been absorbed into Band in Career mode.
Other Thoughts: Can't say anything about the drums or mic capabilities - haven't tried them - but they are not necessary for taking advantage of at least 90% of the features of the game.

Not The Greatest
Pros: Drums are decent, Setlist is so-so,
Cons: I lied the setlist really isn't all that great. The only song it has over Rock Band 2 is Hotel California, but they kind of ruined the ending to it. I would highly recomend you DON"T BUY THIS FOR PS2. It is laggy and overall very hard to use. The vocals are near impossible because of a one second lag between talking and hearing your voice through the speakers. I wish I would have waited for Rock Band 2 on PS2.
Other Thoughts: Get Rock Band 2. Much Better.
