Great music gaming with six songs; adding songs costs you.

The mobile version of GUITAR HERO is a very nice adaptation of the hit console game. It's got really great graphics and a nice, smooth player interface that makes it easy to learn, but takes time to gain some expertise. It's a very different type of interface, so people who found the console game difficult may find the mobile version simple (or vice versa). The base game only comes with six songs, though, which you can grow tired of pretty quickly. A series of challenges gives added incentive for replaying those same six tracks over and over, but eventually, you'll want more songs. And more songs means spending more money. The rapidly growing music store selection is only a click away to tempt you into buy $1.99 song packs.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
