Guitar Hero: On Tour is surprisingly awesome

I got my review unit for Guitar Hero: On Tour earlier this week and have had some time to play through the career mode; and to tell the truth, I’m really impressed. The touch screen works well for strumming, and the attachment that slides into the GBA slot is sturdy and reliable. The song selection was something I really was harping on before the release of the game, but I have to admit that I’ve grown to like it quite a bit. The note charts are strong, and the presentation is on par with the other Guitar Hero games that are on the consoles.

Later in the week I’ll be writing a full revew for, but I’ll probably write a separate one here on the blog as well. For those that were worried about the game translating fully to the handheld environment, I think most of our fears have been put to rest.
