ONM don't blame Activision for trying this. After all, the Guitar Hero series is one of the most popular, successful gaming franchises around at the moment so it would make sense that a version would eventually be created for the world's current best-selling system, the DS. But how enjoyable can a Guitar Hero game be when the thing that makes it so much fun in the first place (the full-size plastic guitar controller) has been removed?
Naturally, the most important aspect of Guitar Hero: On Tour is the Guitar Grip, the controller that comes with the game. It's a pretty solid piece of kit, made of hard transparent plastic with a similar glossy feel to the DS Lite. It has an adjustable strap and also comes with a plectrum-shaped stylus which is a nice touch.
