Dudes and dudettes, grab your fake guitars and get ready to rock out to...Sunny Day Real Estate and Elliot Smith! It's a depressing double play with Guitar Hero 5! No, seriously, those artists are on the track list, but so are Nirvana and Johnny Cash and according to Patrick Klepek, the game's pretty kick butt (whether you're a metal head or a total emo). From his review:
"It's hard to believe we're already on Guitar Hero 5. I remember sneaking into Red Octane's pint-sized E3 booth years ago to see the first Guitar Hero prototype. There was no hype. These days, music games are a dominating force in the industry. The Guitar Hero series has been playing catch-up since Harmonix split to make Rock Band, however, and while Neversoft has admirably picked up the slack, each edition since the divide has been a little…off. Guitar Hero 5, however, is a return to form for the series."
