Gamerision PAX 08: Hands-On Guitar Hero: World Tour

''One of the first things I did today when the press were allowed onto the show floor at PAX was check out Guitar Hero: World Tour. I know what you're going to say: I'm been hating on Guitar Hero all year, so why would I want to play the next installment in the music franchise? Truth is, I remember that I used to be a huge Guitar Hero fan, and nothing would make me happier than to see this series return to glory. Is this the game I've been waiting for? Results are inconclusive.

I didn't get to test out all of Guitar Hero: World Tour's features or use the new guitar, as I only got to sit in on one song and, naturally, I went right for the drums. I was very curious about that new drumset, with the three pads, two symbols, and a pedal, so I had to try it out. The result was that it was harder than I expected. I don't know if it's because the game is more difficult than Rock Band, or I just wasn't used to the new set, but it just didn't have the natural feeling that playing the Rock Band drums for the first time did.''
