''The Guitar Hero franchise has become a household name and a mega-hit for Activision and Red Octane. I was a little late to the party as I never caught Guitar Hero mania until I played the third instalment of the franchise. I had my doubts at first, but after a few songs and a bit of a learning curve I too was addicted. In fact I went back and picked up Guitar Hero II, just so I could play the set list. Recently, my doubts crept back in when Activision announced that Guitar Hero was being released on the Nintendo DS. My first thought: "Hey, how are they going to plug in a guitar into the Nintendo's dual-screened handheld machine?" But then soon after the initial announcement pictures of the game were released capturing not only my curiosity but my excitement as well. Guitar Hero: On Tour has finally been released and having played the game over the past few days I am simply impressed with the innovation and the overall enjoyment of the game. That being said, I did have some concerns and I am hoping some improvements can be made for the next instalment of the franchise on the DS which I think really does deserve to be released.''
