Warriors of Rock is the sixth game in the Guitar Hero series.
If you have played a music rytham game beofre you will know the career mode is always around making your band bigger from building up stars and unlock new songs and venues. Warriors of Rock changes this and makes it more story-telling. Instead you must recruit characters to battle against a beast and save the Demigod of Rock. Each character must perform a selection of songs to earn enough stars and transform into a Warrior. Each of the eight Warriors have their own unique power that changes the gameplay. For example, One character can boost the Star Power multiplier from two to six. Quest makes the career mode more interesting and is a nice change to the series.
QuickPlay+ has to be the strongest section of the game though. From here you can create your own Rocker with a ton of customization features from the face, hair, body and tattoos or if you wish you can use your avatar instead. It featres a ranking system and as you complete song you will earn stars aswell as bonus stars by beating set challenges from each song. The ranking up system gives it more replayability if you want to.
Rocking along to your favourite songs can be hard work so you might want to head for GH Studio. Here you can customize the gameplay, create and record your own songs in GH Mix 2.0. You can choose to pick from a selection of songs and edit it to your liking or create your own from scratch. Then once your happy with your track you can upload it to the world and create your very own album cover to go with it. GH Mix 2.0 can be quite confusing to get used to if your new to it but if you give it enough time you can make some great custom songs.
The Soundtrack has a great selection of songs like the amazing "Bohemian Rhapsody". Theres over 90 songs and has to be one of the strongest Soundtracks in the series yet. If you have downloadable content from GH 5, World Tour, Smash Hits or Band Hero they will play also.
With Warriors of Rock been the sixth game in the series it still stays strong. It's new features puts an interesting change to the series and should definitely be added to your collection.
