Will the Guitar Hero reboot fare better or worse than Rock Band’s? Find out inside.
Rock Band isn’t the only music franchise making a comeback this year. Activision’s Guitar Hero is too, with Guitar Hero Live. The newest iteration in the franchise opted for live-action footage of bands instead of Rock Band’s in-game graphics.
Guitar Hero Live’s controller is also different, offering two rows of three keys at the top. Because of this, the game doesn’t support old instruments or music you already own from any of the earlier games.
