Trivia

This is the first Guitar Hero game that includes drums and vocals. This was added as a response to Rock Band (2007). Also, Guitar Hero: Smash Hits (2009) is the first to have a compilation of famous and infamous tracks from the previous entries. These songs in the game were updated so they could be played with a full band, and also, these are the master recordings, instead of covers that were in Guitar Hero (2005) and Guitar Hero II (2006).

Great Song Selections.
19 February 2009 | by jerekraSee all my reviews

Guitar Hero World Tour is a great addition to the guitar hero franchise. The game play is the same as the other ones so I do not have to explain how the game works. I will state that I love some of the songs that are included in this game. I love Bon Jovi so I was thrilled that they decided to use one of their songs, "Livin On A Prayer", in this game. Bon Jovi was over due to be put into Guitar Hero and I hope that they have more Bon Jovi songs included in future Guitar Hero games. Also they have "Eye Of The Tiger" which also is great since I loved Rocky 3. Recommended and this is the best Guitar Hero I have played so far.
