Guitar Hero Live is finally here, but will it make you feel like a rockstar or just a skilled player?
Well the first thing we have to mention is that the guitar is completely renewed (as you can see in the pic above), it now has all the buttons at the end of the guitar and there is 6 of them. This is good news because it actually feels much better, it feels so much more natural and if you learn it right, you can handle all the 6 buttons with just 3 fingers. It doesn’t take much time to get used to the new guitar, the learning curve is kind of easy and after a few songs played you are going to feel comfortable with it. The game starts with a small tutorial so the new controls will be explained, don’t worry about that.
There are 2 ways to play Guitar Hero Live.
One is for an audience and the audience you play for is now a “live” audience, real people in the game and not some graphic characters that looks like some kid created. You start playing from the bottom, in small local clubs struggling to make it to the top and to the big fancy arenas, making a career of it is your goal. You will advance in the game depending on how good you play of curse, if you do well the audience will love you and you will get more points, you do bad and they will boo you out and the more they do… well less points you get and that could make you loose your place in the band, in other words you will earn and open songs by finishing your live performances playing it to the end of the show.
The second way to play it is multiplayer online, where you jump into scheduled timed playlists with different type of music genres trying to beat other peoples scores. All the people will be playing together live and you will see the score rankings as you play on the left of your screen.
Here is where you will earn money that you later can buy more songs to play with later.
This is really fun, and while you play you will see the music video to that song in the background too. What I like about this game is all the different kind of music there is, there is something for everyone here, like pop music from Katy Perry to rock from My Chemical Romance and everything in between… for those who just love music overall (like me) this is perfect.
I do miss some old 60’s – 70’s music and some Guns and Roses (Sweet Child of mine), that would have been nice, but hopefully that can come later as a dlc, as lots of other music. That’s whats also great about this game, it’s surely going to come some great downloadable content where you can choose what to buy and download the music you would like to play.
I had really fun with Guitar Hero Live, I’ve enjoyed every second playing with it. Sure it has some faults, but they are not many and not huge… More content will surely come and make more people happy but the good thing is that everybody that loves music can enjoy it.
There is also an option to connect a microphone to it and where you will earn point depending on how good your vocals are, so… you can play 3 people at once.
There is no excuse now to have a boring party, this will absolutely be the center of joy, the moment where you can finally feel like a true rockstar!
