Guitar Hero (4) World Tour (Wii)

I was very surprised when I got home on Friday to find that Rach had bought me the latest in the Guitar Hero series.

I have to admit I wasn’t planning on purchasing this until the new year but I was very excited by all the new shiny components. So on Friday evening we started on the career mode for our band JAM BADGER.

I got stuck into the drums while Rach stepped up and took on the task of singer. It was tricky to start with but we soon got the hang of it and tore our way through a good few gigs.

On Saturday Dok visited and we made some serious progress into the track listings. It is quite silly that you earn more cash from single player than group play, which meant that some solo parts had to be played before we could unlock the Tool gig.

I think one of the hardest tracks but also the most satisfying was System of a Down – B.Y.O.B.

Dok highlighted the fact there are potentially issues with the drum kits, he’s experienced this on his Xbox GH drum-kit where the green drum isn’t working at all now. He also highlighted the fact that Activision have admitted issue with the drum-kit and will be supplying drum tuning kits. The only issue with my drum-kit is that it can activate star power by accident, so not all bad just quite annoying.

But all in all I really enjoyed playing it, top stuff Rachy.

EDIT: it appears that Dok has resolved his issues with the drum-kit.
