Activision is taking more than a page from Tim Schafer’s heavy metal opus Brutal Legend with their upcoming music title Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, but judging from Paul Semel's impressions of the game, there are plenty of differences too. They just aren't all that favorable.
"Equally worrisome are the new mechanics Neversoft is utilizing. In the game, your character can do a one-time transformation, and with it comes a new power. For example, Johnny Napalm transforms into a wall-crawling demon, which gives him the ability to always have a multiplier, and with said multipliers now going up to 11, er 5."
