Guitar Hero: Smash Hits

Score: 8.0 / 10

Right out of the gate, if you have a couple of the previous Guitar Hero titles, there’s very little point to grabbing Guitar Hero: Smash Hits – a mix tape of fan favorite tracks from the original game, Guitar Hero II, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the ‘80s, and Guitar Hero: Aerosmith. All told, there are

48 master tracks that can be tackled with the guitar or with the full band kit that came with Guitar Hero World Tour and the extra foot pedal that came with Guitar Hero: Metallica.


The hardcore crowd may also want to avoid Smash Hits for the simple fact that it doesn’t support existing DLC.  I’m relatively certain that something


could be done about this situation, via a patch or an “update” but it’s strange it’s not supported right out of the gate.  It must have something to do with the extra instrument support but you will be asking yourself, “Do I need to buy this song again?”


Though Guitar Hero titles are being released at a phenomenal rate, the audio quality and presentation haven’t suffered in the process. Everything from “Message in a Bottle”, “Rock and Roll All Nite”, “The Trooper”, and “Back in the Saddle” and everything in between, sounds really good.


For the more casual player, Smash Hits is a good opportunity to breakout the instruments from On Tour and have some summer fun.
