Thought that the plastic peripheral party game genre was dead and buried? Sadly for the lack of space in my closet, Activision is wheeling out the Guitar Hero franchise once more with Guitar Hero Live. After 2010’s Warriors of Rock, there were so many GH games that no one was buying them any more and the 2008 recession meant that no one could afford to buy them anyway, so clearly the publisher thinks enough time has passed and we’re ready to be rock gods again.
Guitar Hero Live will need more than a double dose of nostalgia to revive the series though, which is why Activision has completely ripped everything up and is trying something completely new. The latest Guitar Hero game will be far more realistic than before and you can find out more after the break.
