Posted on November 26, 2008, Jonathan Zero Punctuation Shreds Through Guitar Hero World Tour
It’s been almost a year since we saw Yahtzee Croshaw fake-strumming his way through a music rhythm game, but now he’s picked up a newer plastic instrument for a bout with Guitar Hero World Tour. This time around around he has a bit of a grudge against Rock Band — which is understandable once you hear his explanation — but still finds plenty at fault with Activision’s take on the concept. Some strange design flaws, unresponsive instruments, and bizarre song choices abound in the game. I wish I could say a copy of Rock Band 2 could probably fix all those complaints, but you can still find some of the same issues over in Harmonix’s corner.
Stay tuned after the usual review for look at Deus Ex’s theme song with lyrics.
UPDATE: Hmm, the usual embed code seems to be broken, so you’ll have to go to The Escapist to watch the video.
