When I heard Guitar Hero was coming to Nintendo DS and I saw the pictures and video of the people playing with the Guitar Grip peripheral I was doubtful that it would be as fun as they made it out to be and if it would compare to its big brother versions on the home consoles. I would like to make it clear right up front that if you like Guitar Hero for the home consoles then you will definitely like Guitar Hero: On Tour for Nintendo DS. If you can't get enough of Guitar Hero at home you can now take it on the road with Guitar Hero: On Tour.
If you have been living up in the mountains with wolves since 2005 then let me explain to you how Guitar Hero works. Guitar Hero up until now was only available on home consoles (PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii) and Windows PC. You play these versions using a guitar-shaped controller that has five colored buttons on the neck of the guitar and a strum bar to simulate you strumming the strings. The guitar controller also has a whammy bar to add some style to the long notes for extra points and the ability to detect you tilting the guitar upward to initiate Star Power for even more points. This guitar controller works well for the home consoles, but it is not like you are going to carry a big guitar peripheral around with you to play the game on Nintendo DS."
