We’ve been having a lot of fun with our Guitar Hero on Tour! I must admit I was VERY worried at first I couldn’t figure out how to do anything! So this post is probably not for the experienced Guitar Hero players out there… I’m going to post out all the things that confused me in hopes that it will help someone.
The first thing you’ll notice when you open the box is the hand grip piece, it’s got 4 primary colored buttons and is quite unusual looking. It fits in the Gameboy portal of you DS Lite, it also come with an attatchment for those of you that have an older DS. It’s very comfortable to hold onto and very easy to
The very good thing is that it’s plug and play! At first it’s a little overwhelming to know what to play, as there are a lot of options.
What to do first?
The tutorials are very good, but if you’re like me, you like to get right in there and play! Learn by doing I always say. That’s where the ‘training’ section was really good for the kids and I. The training will let you get through the song no matter how many mistakes you make!
Another alternative for those that want to get started right away will be to do the “quickplay” option. The only problem boy2001 had was that he didn’t like that it said “song failed”. A little disheartening when you’ve been pouring your heart out you know, so that’s why I would suggest ‘training’ for kids until they are a little more familiar with the game. After he got a few of those messages he lost his heart for playing a little but he’s back into it now that I got him into ‘training’.
Playing against eachother!
Choose the multi-player mode. Decide who is going to be the host and who is going to join. Both people need grips and games in. We haven’t gotton up to the more devilish aspects of the multi-player mode as we keep it on easy – medium but there are ways to sabotage your opponent.
And the winner is…
At the end of the round, the winner is declared, it doesn’t show percentages to know by how much so you better bring your A game if you want to be THE Guitar Hero on Tour!
A nice aspect is that you get access to the other persons Guitar Hero. So if you’ve got nearby friends, be sure you’re buying different versions of Guitar Hero for the DS and you can share the songs. The only thing is the person may have an advantage of knowing the songs better than you because they’re practicing on them!
Guitar Hero is very fun and great for all ages once someone knows what to do that is! Enjoy your new game and let me know what you think!
Mom Central co-ordinated this review and sent us two games to test, great thanks.
