Music Simulator: Guitar Hero 5 Mobile
The game is generally good, although unlike the proper "Guitar Hero" games, it does not miss out notes or beats when you go wrong. I love the fact that on this game there are many songs, most of which sound very good - the sound quality on the game is also very good.

Experience: The game is generally good, although unlike the proper "Guitar Hero" games, it does not miss out notes or beats when you go wrong. I also think it is like the "Tap Tap Revenge" series of games, but you cannot have 2 players (at least, not on the phone I have it on). You do get to choose what you play on each song, like the proper "Guitar Hero" games, and this is good as it means you can play different things when you go on it. Also, you can choose the difficulty, thus giving you more to do, even if you beat the lower skill levels. // 5

Extras: Like the proper "Guitar Hero" games, you get to use the 'Star Power', as well as being able to change appearance (male/female) and the design of the instruments you play. This is unlike the "Tap Tap Revenge" series, as you only play certain things along with the song, rather than getting to see your character actually play different instruments on screen etc. // 5

Overall Impression: I love the fact that on this game there are many songs, most of which sound very good - the sound quality on the game is also very good (you can choose to switch the sound on or off when you enter the game). I also like the fact that when you beat a certain amount of songs in one venue, you can unlock an 'Encore' song for that venue - this is good because it again gives you more things to do. On top of this, there are certain achievements you can get in the game, which then unlock certain things - instruments of a different design, or just picks which indicate certain achievements with different designs. As well as this, the game is very easy to navigate. However, I do not like the fact that a lot of the songs are not very well known - there was only one on the game which I really recognised, and that was "A-Punk" by Vampire Weekend. It was actually after playing this game that I decided to tab out that song, and I ended up putting it on this site. // 7
