Guitar Hero World Tour : Air Guitar Heaven

Guitar Hero World Tour : Air Guitar Heaven

If you reserve your guitar playing antics to the living then you are going to love the latest update to the Mac Guitar Hero series. Following on from the massive success of Guitar Hero Aerosmith Aspyr / Activision have released Guitar Hero World Tour. Having already pretty much reach guitar legend status on the Aerosmith game it was definitely time to take my playing to the next level.


Guitar Hero World Tour is the most complete music game to-date with 86 on-disc tracks from music legends such as The Eagles, Van Halen, Metallica, Michael Jackson and The Doors and features in- game appearances by world famous artists such as Ozzy Osbourne, Billy Corgan and Travis Barker.

Virtual musicians can live out their rock and roll fantasies by playing either a single instrument in-game, or any combination of instruments within the game, in addition to the full band experience. Guitar Hero World Tour introduces Battle of the Bands mode, which allows eight players to join online and challenge each other band-to- band to determine who is the best of the best.

In the Band modes, up to four players can jam together, online or offline, as they progress through the game. In single-player Career Mode, players can jam on any of the instruments in-game utilizing the controllers in branching venue progression enabling them to rock out in the order of their choice.

The game’s innovative new Music Studio lets players express their musical creativity by giving them access to a full complement of tools to create digital music from scratch, utilizing all of the drum kit controller and guitar controllers, and then play their compositions in the game.

The game is particularly addictive and we have all been reading the news over the last few weeks that Apple are heralding the iPod Touch as a mobile games machine. Well personally I think if you run a Mac Mini as a media centre (read my experiences and set up) then the Guitar Hero games are an essential step to home media heaven.

Guitar Hero World Tour takes air guitar to the next level, if only it came with a wig and leather trousers…

The game is available in two formats : The full game bundled with Guitar controller and Game only (Amazon).
