"After we've finished evaluating every game to come down the pipeline, we put our heads together and decide on a single "best of" winner that's worthy of the title "IGN Game of the Month." Pretty simple, don't you think?
Now that we have the guidelines out of the way, let's move on and congratulate this month's winner...
IGN Nintendo DS Game of the Month: Guitar Hero: On Tour
Why we picked it: While Guitar Hero: On Tour is certainly not a replacement for the full console experience, we're still very impressed with how well Vicarious Visions managed to capture the feel of the game and make it portable. It's an ambitious title that delivered far more than we expected when it was first announced. It's a love it or hate it title it seems, and we love it. This is the ultimate example for how to go above and beyond a cheap cop out when a franchise goes portable."
