Guitar Hero World Tour and Rock Band 2 Head-to-Head Wii Review

By  •  January 13, 2009


This is our first head-to-head review here at pure nintendo. Basically, I’m going to break down the features of each game and compare each aspect head-to-head at the end of the review.

Guitar Hero World Tour

World Tour is the 4th major version in the Guitar Hero franchise and the first to offer a complete band mode to keep up with Rock Band. One of the first things you’ll notice about World Tour is the all new interface and added tweaks for multiple instrument ‘lanes’ on screen at the same time. If you’ve played any of the previous GH games, you’ll feel right at home in World Tour.
