NZGamer: "Welcome to the ninth game in Activision's successful Guitar Hero franchise. And it's getting better and better. Last year's World Tour was a major step up from 2007's Legends of Rock – not least because of an improvement in the selection of female characters (no I don't want to be a post-pubescent pig-tailed school girl in a short skirt – pervert!). The graphics were better, particularly in the important area of dressing up your character in Rock Star Creator – sticking tatts on and changing their outfit every gig. Hey, it's what rock stars do."
