Guitar Hero On Tour Decades





Guitar Hero On Tour Decades 


I have been into music for a very long time. In fact I written a few praise and worship hymns to God. I did not expect any glorifying God in Guitar Hero On Tour Decades, even though it would be a great idea for a video game. What shocked me was the control scheme. This DS game does not feel like playing a guitar. The home console versions of Guitar Hero do feel like playing a guitar. So the translation from home console to hand held got a little lost in translation.

So I said to myself, maybe it will be okay anyway. A positive attitude is always important in life after all. Guitar Hero On Tour Decades cramped me with their controller attachment. I tried holding it a lot of different ways, and nothing felt right. I got going in the game, and the game was missing my strums. At other times it was picking up things I missed. I started wondering about the controls here.

I decided to look into the lyrics of the music. I knew a few of the older artists in Guitar Hero On Tour Decades, but the song selection was nothing I liked when I used to listen to their music. There is one exception and that is Sweet Home Alabama. I have never been to Bama but still like that song. Some Stryper would have been appreciated (editor: suggestion for future releases). I was not very impressed with the graphic in Guitar Hero On Tour Decades. The characters on the screen act way over the top, and there is no call for such show-boating.

I talked to the WMG, and agree that certain characters need to improve their wardrobes in Guitar Hero On Tour Decades as well. If you like the songs (do an internet search on this game and song listing) then you will find some painful replay in this Nintendo DS video game. If you don't then you probably will leave this one on the shelf. There is concentration needed for this game, but a lot of content families will find fault with.
