The graphics for the series never changed since the original xbox and PS2 era, except make it HD. I swear they are using the same game engine for the past 6 years. Here is a word of advice.

2 games a year? there were 6 guitar hero games (without counting dj hero) in 2010 D:

How about all the band-specific versions (Aerosmith/Van Halen)?

About time they milk that in to the ground and then kept trying to milk it

Yeah, I mean they really wanted to kill this franchise, they released 15 Guitar Hero games, and 2 Dj Hero games in only 5 years and I'm not counting the handheld versions. I'm glad they finally stopped.

Warriors of rock suffered from split personality and no focus. It was only a matter of time. Plus the dj hero soundtracks were garbage and missed opportunities.

good. hopefully that entire fad will fall out... I never was it's biggest fan.. or any of those games..

those guitar games are pretty stupid too... it was solely about revenue after game 1 hit big..... just imagine all the chumps they got on 3 song track packs... hah

good now i just wonder if cod will go down this road

jessupj2862d ago

No doutb since they're focusing all their efforts on COD now. Will we see 2 CODs a year now? Quite possibly. And then after that is milked to death what will they have left? They'll have all the new IPs they investe.... o wait!
