Overall, I'd say this is a pretty fun DS game. It may not vary much from the game of June, but if you liked that one, you'll have a blast with this one. Perhaps its not worth its $35 game-only price tag, but jamming out on the DS doesn't get much better than this.
Cons: Hand cramps and neck cramps especially on Hard and Expert, other technical issues, more songs and store items would be nice.
Just like the first "Guitar Hero: On Tour", this one has a good song list with much lighter songs (appropriate to the DS) than the original Guitar Hero games. Activision didn't skimp on this game and each decade has songs from some really well known bands. Organizing the songs into different decades is also far more satisfying than a random organization.
The gameplay is similar enough to the original Guitar Hero to work fairly well, especially on Easy or Medium difficulty. The guitar pick stylus to strum with mimics the feeling of playing guitar closely enough for the game to have that "make believe" appeal. This game also features a battle mode that works even better than the battle mode in Guitar Hero III. The features of the DS are really utilized in battle mode, and you'll find yourself signing leg warmers that pop up on screen and blowing frantically when your equipment catches on fire.
On easy or medium, I'd easily give this game at least four stars, but on the upper difficulty level, problems start to mount. Trying to play some of the songs on hard or expert can cause severe hand cramps for BOTH hands. Switching positions can alleviate this somewhat, but not enough. Neck cramps also occur. When playing a fast section, there is often the tendency to not strum in exactly the right place, screwing up you note streak. Sometimes, the guitar attachment will pop out of the DS forcing you to restart the entire system. All of these were problems in the original "Guitar Hero: On Tour" and I don't see that too much has been done to fix them here.
Maybe it is a fruitless wish as the DS is only capable of so much, but it would also be nice to be able to buy more items and songs at the store like on the games for larger systems. Not much is available here.
This game has a good song list, good concept and good gameplay on lower difficulty levels, but I cannot bring myself to love a game that is actually physically painful to play. Too many technical issues. 3+ stars.
