emillkim's Guitar Hero 5 (Xbox 360) review

Serioiusly. C'mon already.

I dropped by a friend's to play Guitar Hero 5 the other day. 
It's been a long time since I touched the plastic fender stratocaster but I was looking forward to playing some Stones on a saturday. 
 
Picking up my 'Axe' we scrolled through our choices. 
 
Coldplay 
The killers. 
Bob Dylan. 
 
WTF. C'mon. Are we reaching the bottom of the barrel for artists with sweet guitar tunes. 
Coldplay? Practice? We talking about Practice? (AI reference). 
 
The execution is great.  
The presentation, graphics are all just streamlined and beautiful. 
But when is this going to change.  
 
Cant we just add another button to the guitar. I think a 10 button controller might make it way more fun. 
 
We played coldplay. I got tired of coldplay. 
We went to get waffles at ihops. 
It was a good day.

It doesn't appear that you played this game enough to justify a review...

This is a very helpful review, although I think it's more or less about the end result - IHOP then Guitar Hero 5.

Bob Dylan kicks ass.

dude i'm cool with you talking smack about the killers and coldplay, but keep you mouth shut about bob dylan the man is one of the all time greats.  Nobody who knows anything about music would ever disrespect bob dylan.  If you don't like his tunes, fine, but don't say bob dylan songs are bottom of the barrel

Why oh why didn't they get the Jimi Hendrix cover? The guitar solo is totally sweet.

So it looks like you liked everything about the game except Coldplay?
But since Coldplay was in it, you only gave it 2 stars?
 
One artist out of 80+ artists made you subtract 3 stars?

    Good fun, but lacking that special something 0

    When Guitar Hero 5 works right, it's a great experience. When it doesn't, well, you better buckle up for some frustration.  Guitar Hero 5, as you may have heard, is a rhythm game. Surely enough rhythm games have been released by now for people to have certain expectations about them. For example, a clean, decipherable user interface, good song selection, nice graphics, and the ability to hit the notes on the screen. Of these four examples, Guitar Hero 5 fails at three of them: the UI, the note-t...

    Let's stop playing the "Enabler" 0

    First off I just want to say, I love the GH series.  Furthermore, I do like this game.  The problem is, I am tired of enabling these companies.  This is the series that among all games should be made into direct download games.  Stop with the discs.  I can't play half the songs I wanted to play from GHWT even after purchasing a license.  Very aggravated that my Ozzy songs are not playable.  VERY!  Even more than that, I am getting the free Van Halen game thanks to the promo, with no word on if T...
