Game Guys writes: "So, Guitar Hero 5 is more of the same. The track list is a retro 80's/90's indie lovers dream with a handful of great songs for more casual music listeners. Changes to the multi-player and band modes make the game more playable, and should have been in place in World Tour. More multi-player modes do give the game some extra life, once to music ends, but this game is another E.K.G jolt to the genre that many thought was flat-lining. It's fun like all the Guitar Hero games are fun. And if your not a Beatles fan, then this September, it's your best bet to get some fresh tracks on your Xbox."
