About this deal

Playing 2 rows definitely feels more like a real guitar, but not moving your fingers along the buttons doesn't feel like a real guitar. The frets are represented by a "note highway", three scrolling lanes on-screen, containing either black or white notes representing the two rows. The final design of the controller for Live utilizes a new design with six buttons arranged into two rows of three frets, designated by black and white-colored notes in-game, instead of using the traditional row of five colored frets used by previous Guitar Hero games. In contrast to the previous five-button design, the Guitar Hero Live controller features six buttons arranged into two rows of three.

Experience points are used to raise the player's rank in the GHTV metagame, allowing them to unlock player card skins and other features of GHTV, including Play tokens. They have now also added a strum bar for when you don't need to press a button, again nice edition as its similar to how the drums used to be. To enable smoother transitions between positive and negative versions of the band footage, multiple takes were performed for each song using the same camera motions.McElroy found most of the songs were from 2000 or later, forgoing classic rock songs, and considered the soundtrack to be the "biggest disappointment" of GH Live. If you get certain stars and scores you unlock some pictures (which is pointless, it should unlock something better than that). Activision offered a contest for players to win prizes by participating in a special "Shred-a-Thon" premium show, highlighting the addition of DragonForce's " Through the Fire and Flames"—one of the most notoriously difficult songs that has appeared in other Guitar Hero titles—to the GHTV setlist. This version supports both "touch" mode and support for an optional Bluetooth-enabled guitar controller that provides "[the] full game in an uncompromised way" according to Activision. Il gioco Guitar Hero migliore di sempre, grazie ai vari livelli ci può giocare anche mio figlio di otto anni.

I may also be saying this because I am not good at two rows, I have played a lot over the last few days and I just find it too hard to play on expert and even advanced with 2 rows. Though FreeStyleGames experimented with other options including a controller-less game, camera and motion detection, and social-based games, but recognized quickly that the guitar controller was a key part of the series' success. There is no backward compatibility with songs or controllers from previous editions of the franchise; FreeStyleGames' developer Jamie Jackson justified the decision, explaining that Guitar Hero Live was a "completely new game" that existing content would not work with due to the change in core gameplay.It's effectively two music channels with an overlay on so even though you can't choose the song, you can choose the channel. When a song was complete, the player was ranked based on their performance with the other tracked players, and awarded experience points, Coins, and other bonuses. Experience it all from the intimacy of a small club or the main stage of a massive outdoor festival. Premium shows were particularly noted as problematic, in addition to the lack of a practice mode for the GHTV songs, which may impact how those players that seek to perfect every song would enjoy the game mode. Access to Premium Shows could be purchased with Hero Cash, or by completing several specific songs in either on-demand or on rotation play.

The main Live portion of the game received mixed reviews, with critics panning its weak soundtrack, lack of multiplayer and the live action videos. The GHTV mode has mixed opinions, with most reviewers praising the concept, with the presentation of the channels were highlighted as hearkening to the heyday of MTV, and giving the player the ability to explore new music. The game's soundtrack include songs by The Black Keys, Blitz Kids, Ed Sheeran, Fall Out Boy, Gary Clark Jr.Brandon Jones of GameTrailers believed it was difficult to "take the actors seriously" in part due to the duality of the crowd reaction as well as that the song was still based on studio recordings, sounding off in the concert setting.

The on-disc soundtrack of Guitar Hero Live includes 42 songs and spans across a diverse selection of genres, the developers recognizing that challenging guitar tracks are not strictly limited to rock music. Ten different bands represent the songs in the "Guitar Hero Live" mode, playing in two different music festivals. The player is able to select one of four difficulty levels which affect the number and complexity of the note patterns they have to hit, and the speed at which the on-screen display scrolls. The initial controller iterations, presented both in-studio and to Activision, were met with skepticism but they found that players quickly adapted to the new scheme as an improvement over the older controllers.The design of the game's guitar controller was overhauled, using rapid prototyping to test potential guitar designs. It also removes the highway during parts of the song where you don't need to play so you can watch the video rather than twiddling your thumbs.
