I really didn't expect much from this game, just the usual Guitar Hero schtick but a little modernized, but what i got was really impressive! What you've learned for years playing this game, throw it away, cause the only thing that is the same in this game is the road of notes you get and even that is different!
First off, the new guitar is great, really well built and i love how everything handles, the new button layout is a really good change from the old style! It will take some getting used to the new style, but i feel like it's worth it and will make you feel more like a rockstar when pulling off every note!
Secondly, the presentation is fantastic and simple, you got 2 modes: Live and GHTV, Live throws away the old game crowds and environments and replaces it with an actual live crowd and your own bands with real people, as you play the crowd and band reactions will drastically change depending on how good or bad you're playing and it feels great when your crowd is going insane from your playing and downright awful when they maul at you for playing terribly. Now on GHTV, you play with an old school MTV style with non-stop music videos playing in the background as you play, alongside being able to level up and earn credits to quick play any song you'd like from the GHTV playlist. There is also events for you to unlock new songs and cosmetics for your online profile.
Third of all, the music selection is great with songs varying from way back to the 60's up to the 2010's in the Live mode, mixing it up with songs from all rock genres and even had 2 songs off that type of genre. But not only that, on the GHTV mode there is an ever growing selection of music that is constantly updating for free, which i find incredible for this game.
The great multiplayer fun you've had over the years is still here with the options to play with 2 guitars and 1 singer, you will have hours of fun with friends if you get the whole package and have many laughs.

Worth the buy!

Comments about Activision 1001350 Guitar Hero Live for Nintendo Wii U:

I had heard mixed reviews about this game, due to the new guitar style and the fact that a lot of it was streaming online. Altogether this game is awesome, there are so many songs, even a hardcore gamer would take a few days to play them all and the new guitar design brings a new challenge to the Guitar Hero franchise. If you like the old Guitar Hero games or are just looking for a good time with some great music, this is definitely the game for you.

Comments about Activision 1001350 Guitar Hero Live for Nintendo Wii U:

It's a fun music/ rhythm game that's actually kind of difficult to get used to but gets really fun once you do. It's a shame that you can't have a full band like other music games but if it's the only music game you have, it's a good one to start with

    I play this game with my children, the oldest of whom is 10. We have so much fun! There are different skill levels that make it possible for each of us to play at the difficulty level we are most comfortable with. My kids know more of the songs than I do!
