What is more amazing than that is the fact that the series continues to sell massive numbers, which is probably why this is the third game to grace the DS since last summer. Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits is the latest rhythm title for Nintendo's handheld, and unlike the previous chapter Decades, this game has some new features which make it feel more like a sequel as opposed to just another track pack. Personally I have always been a fan of the GH games on DS. The fact that the developers managed to make this plastic-peripheral game work on a handheld still astonishes me. If you are like me then this latest outing will likely not disappoint; that is if you are a fan of the track listing, which is as always, subjective.
The first thing you will want to note is that, just like in previous versions you can still stream tracks between versions. This gives you the ability to have a set list well over 70 songs. This was obviously a conscious decision, and one the console developers should really take note of, I am looking at you World Tour. As I mentioned the songs are always the key component to any rhythm game and Modern Hits contains exactly what the name states. Bands such as AFI, Wolfmother, Coldplay, Fall Out Boy, Evanesence, and Weezer to just name a few. Some of these tracks are certainly offered in other games, and in others as DLC, but none of them on the portable front yet. If you are a fan of modern rock, there is likely something here to tickle your fancy."
