GameFocus: "’m sure I’m echoing many of you by saying that music games have become stale. Innovation comes in small bits and pieces with each release; and that itself is hampered by a saturation of the market. Now that we are on the sixth entry in the Guitar Hero franchise (not including the band-specific titles), it needs to bring more than drop-in/drop-out play or the ability to use any combination of instruments to recoup some of the fans that have strayed away from the genre. This year’s edition - dubbed Warriors of Rock - does exactly that by dropping the transparent story mode we’ve seen in past titles and infusing it with a much deeper campaign experience. But is it enough?"
