Of course the game was really to task with the review copy and luckily we got nicely on time. The guitars were plugged, the PlayStation 3 turned fully up and sweaty, we clicked on the colored buttons. With a whole host of new songs and a new career mode, we transformed ourselves into a rock star with Guitar Hero 5!"
