About this deal

Utilising the revolutionary Guitar Hero Guitar Grip peripheral and a custom-designed Guitar Hero pick-stylus, Guitar Hero: On Tour leverages the unique abilities of Nintendo DS to bring a new dimension to hand-held gaming. Guitar Hero: On Tour is a series of music video games based on the Guitar Hero series for the Nintendo DS handheld game system.

I found that holding the DS against my belly and rotating my elbow out to the side (thus keeping my wrist straight) was the only way to play for an extended period of time; unfortunately, this problem exists in its sequel as well. I would have given it a 9 out of 10 but the game IS painful on longer periods of play since you hold the whole thing with one wrist but the time you spend playing it (recommend shorter sessions), is a real blast! They’ve also added something I wish the entire franchise would adopt: when you beat the game on a difficulty setting other than Easy, you get all of the money and potential unlocks for both that difficulty and all the difficulties before it.After the player has successfully hit a selected series of notes, he or she will gain "Star Power" which doubles their score until the meter has run out. The Edgar Winter Group’s “Free Ride” is a million times better than almost every song that you slog through to get to it, and just like the original On Tour, some of the songs are also found in Guitar Hero: World Tour.

To be able to purchase content for Wii U or Nintendo 3DS family systems, your funds usable through the Nintendo Account must be merged with the funds tied to your Nintendo Network ID. Fans can also join together to play co-op mode using a local wireless network, or battle each other in a Guitar Duel using new Battle Items unique to the DS platform. And the payoff is worth it because Guitar Hero: On Tour is still a blast to play even in its condensed form.Despite the game's lack of a fret button, the game is still a great challenge with a solid difficulty curve -- especially for those who still haven't jumped on the Guitar Hero bandwagon. There are five lists: Modern, 2000s, 1990s, 1980s, and 1970s (isn’t Vicarious Visions aware that the modern period IS the 2000s? The soundtrack was considered to have stronger guitar portions than from previous games, [25] but still felt like a "disco" collection.

It is compatible with the On Tour Guitar Grip, as well as a unique "Drum Skin" and microphone support, but is not considered part of the On Tour series. This peripheral is not compatible with the Nintendo DSi because it lacks a GBA slot to insert the grip into, but Vicarious Visions has stated that it is eager to continue development of the series on the DSi. The DS is held book-like, and you strum by stroking the touch screen with either your stylus or an included pick-shaped stylus. The songs chosen in the setlists of all three games have significantly less objectionable content than the ones in mainstream console Guitar Hero titles, making the On Tour series the first and only games in the series to be rated Everyone 10+ by the ESRB. The Guitar Hero: On Tour series uses a special "Guitar Grip" game controller that adapts the Nintendo DS into a variation of the normal guitar controller used for the console versions of Guitar Hero.And then there's the multiplayer component: you can play each song cooperatively with back-up and lead guitars split between two players over a wireless local connection. In North America, Nintendo released a bundle which included Guitar Hero: On Tour and a limited edition Silver/Black Nintendo DS Lite branded with the Guitar Hero logo.

IGN commented that the setlist was "a little debatable" and "clearly being aimed at a friendlier, mainstream, pop-friendly crowd". The game is rated "E 10+" (Everyone 10 and older) by the ESRB and is scheduled for release this summer. Other requests are based on the effects players use in multiplayer mode, such as playing an entire song at "Hyperspeed" (notes moving on the screen faster than normal) or by using the whammy bar on every sustained note. However, unlocking new guitars, songs, and costumes is pretty nice, despite the presence of the All-American Rejects. These requests prompt the player to complete songs with certain requirements, such as hitting a minimum number of consecutive notes or hitting a minimum percentage of the notes in the song.and © for all products, characters, and indicia related thereto which are contained herein are owned by the companies who market or license those products. RedOctane wanted to see On Tour as a "polished AAA title on a handheld" and insisted that the "Guitar Duel" be a key feature of the game, giving Vicarious Visions more time to complete the game. To be able to purchase content for Wii U or Nintendo 3DS family systems, a Nintendo Network ID is also required and your funds usable through the Nintendo Account must be merged with the funds tied to your Nintendo Network ID. For those who have, jumping into the Hard difficulty might pose a slight challenge but Expert will still manage to kick your ass. Once all the songs in the set are completed, the player is presented with a final encore song for that set while also unlocking the next set.
