Game Review: Guitar Hero 5 Mobile

Guitar Hero 5 Mobile is a mini version of the popular console version of Guitar Hero. It features similar gameplay mechanics and three playable instruments (Video Review).

Overall Score: 4/5GuitarHero

While Guitar Hero 5 Mobile’s graphics aren’t up to par, the gameplay transforms the title into a fun game that will keep you entertained for about 2 and a half hours if you only play each song once with one instrument. If you play through the game with multiple instruments or difficulties, it could last you over 6 hours!

Gameplay: 5/5 (Weighted to be 2x more important)

The controls are simple, just tap the right color at the right time! Some reviews in the Marketplace say that they often press the device’s capacitive buttons, but I never once had that issue. You can always tap higher on the screen if necessary. The song list is decent, with 32 songs total. Another common complaint is that the Expert difficulty isn’t challenging enough. While it comes nowhere near the difficulty of the console game, Expert does add decent difficulty to the game. Overall, it’s pretty fun to play and rock out to.

Visuals: 3/5

The visuals are definitely lacking; however, when you are playing the song, you won’t be watching the visuals anyways. The only visual issue that affects playing the game is the choppy image scaling of the notes as they come towards you.
