411mania: "The last couple of years have been very interesting for the rhythm-based genre. While they initially exploded in popularity due to the ease of access and party-friendly gameplay, it appears as though the genre is slowly waning. This is largely thanks to a complete over saturation of the market, with the Guitar Hero franchise being especially guilty. Though this year has seen fewer games, the question still remains – do people really need another Guitar Hero game? Well, probably not."
