About this deal

We've taken all of our learnings on the DS platform to date and pushed it to the limits to create a truly innovative Guitar Hero experience.

The Grip was also reported to seat poorly in the GBA slot and came out of the unit at times, which caused the game to stop unexpectedly, requiring a restart of the system due to its inability to support hot swapping. After your payment has been processed, the content will be downloaded to the applicable system linked to your Nintendo Account, or your Nintendo Network ID in the case of Wii U or Nintendo 3DS family systems. You also lose out on the social aspect of having observers watch you jam out to rock classics and contemporary hits -- but if my experience with the game in public is anything to go by, you'll end up with a few lookie-loos peering over your shoulder as you jam out on the Nintendo DS because it's such an unexpectedly cool experience.The game was the top selling DS game in North America the week of its release, [39] selling over 300,000 units, and setting the record for any Activision DS release and as one of the top five releases from Activision on any platform. On Tour was the second best-selling game across all systems for the month of June 2008, according to the NPD Group [42] selling more than 422,000 units. With all that's going on, the developer even managed to get a decent visual engine going to accompany the notes running down the screen. It is compatible with the On Tour Guitar Grip, as well as a unique "Drum Skin" and microphone support, but is not considered part of the On Tour series.

June 2008 - Most musicians dream of one day reaching platinum success, and a new Nintendo DS bundle lets rockers claim that coveted status right from day one. Players use the Guitar Hero pick-stylus on the touch screen to strum their favorite tunes and create their rock 'n' roll legacy in career mode. Play as a wide variety of characters and customize outfits from throughout the decades of rock, defining the best and most outrageous clothing trends in rock history. And, of course, the "star ranking" is in place, so you'll want to try for five-star performances if you really want to show people how good you are.

And then there's the multiplayer component: you can play each song cooperatively with back-up and lead guitars split between two players over a wireless local connection.

But even though Guitar Hero: On Tour might not feel like playing guitar, it definitely feels like playing Guitar Hero: it’s an excellent portable representation of the full experience, and it’s incredibly hard to think of any way to do it better than how Vicarious Visions did it. It's an amazing accomplishment considering you're missing a key component: a full-sized guitar to give you the illusion and feel that you're actually playing an instrument in time to the music playing back at you.The game will be packaged with a revolutionary Guitar Hero(TM) Guitar Grip(TM) peripheral that fits snugly into the DS and a unique Guitar Hero pick-stylus that brings a new dimension to handheld gaming and the core gameplay that defines Guitar Hero. This means that if you beat the game on Expert, you never have to play the single-player game again; you get all of the money for Easy, Medium, Hard, and Expert. I was looking around to purchase one online, and was unsure if they all work with both DS and DS Lite. While some tracks were brought over from Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, Vicarious Visions recreated all the note tracks for the game, aiming to keep the same difference in difficulty from Easy to Expert as in the console versions. For example, players must blow into the microphone to extinguish a pyrotechnics effects gone wrong, or use the touch screen to autograph a crazed fan's shirt in the middle of their set.

Guitar Hero: On Tour has won several Nintendo awards from IGN for their 2008 Nintendo DS Best of 2008 feature, including Best Music/Rhythm Game, [33] Most Innovative Design, [34] and Best Local Multiplayer. Twenty songs from the North American setlist were exclusive to this version of Guitar Hero upon release while the remaining six songs have been used throughout the series. But they're so well done with challenging and fun note tracks that you'll probably end up enjoying hated songs in their Guitar Hero format. The DS is held book-like, and you strum by stroking the touch screen with either your stylus or an included pick-shaped stylus. For those who have, jumping into the Hard difficulty might pose a slight challenge but Expert will still manage to kick your ass.RedOctane wanted to see On Tour as a "polished AAA title on a handheld" and insisted that the "Guitar Duel" be a key feature of the game, giving Vicarious Visions more time to complete the game. Work on a Nintendo DS version of Guitar Hero started in early 2007 according to Vicarious Visions CEO, Karthik Bala. The soundtrack features the most diverse set list of master tracks ever offered in a Guitar Hero game, including classic rock, alternative and pop favourites.
