Customer Reviews

More of a downgrade

Unfortunately the menu has been downgraded, not updated, in GHTV. Scrolling is way too sensitive and the clicking doesn't even correlate to scrolls. Also, when you finish or quit a song in GHTV, you are brought to the very top of the songlist..when before you were brought right back to the song you just played. I am pretty baffled as to how these things were cleared through Freestyle's QA team, because they are very bold issues.

I know this will probably never happen, but please give iPad players the option to play in portrait mode, and make the fretboard bigger. It is wayyy too small and takes up only about 30% of the entire screen. I can rough-fix this by using the Zoom feature in iOS settings but this can get annoying and problematic. Playing with Zoom is honestly the only way to FC or even play through some songs in the game

The best game available on iOS

Great game! I'm a big fan of Guitar Hero series and love this one because I can play it anywhere!
After unlocking the full version you get lots of songs plus there are new added every now and then.
The app it self could use some improvements like scrolling in "on demand" menu and sorting songs for example "recently added". It's very poor compared to console version.
The GHTV is pretty much dead, you only play against bots, but you can easily get 1st place and loads of currency and quickly level up.
A full single player mode is also available as the same as it is on consoles.

Tried really hard to like a watered down classic

The music is god-awful, and try all you want, but Rhianna is not justifiable guitar hero music. Neither is Katy Perry or Eminem.
The live show treatment makes me squirm with embarrassment from seeing droves of lame white people holding signs that would make the Disney channel look edgy. Was the budget so low that animations and a storyline were cut to make room for a new guitar design? Which brings me to the guitar. Ok, I get the whole stacked 3x2 buttons, and yes, it is more challenging, but the visual UI is not nearly as easy to see as colors. Using the orientation of guitar pick-shaped icons instead of colors is simply not enough to consistently see when the changes are coming.
The only reason for stars is the integration with iOS. It's fairly seamless.
