The once-prolific Guitar Hero series sees just one major release this year. Once upon a time, we could expect publisher Activision to pump out five or more guitar-based games a year. In 2010, there is only Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock.
The follow-up to last year's unusually diverse Guitar Hero 5 focuses more on guitar-driven rock and heavy metal, also adding a mystical twist to the game's career mode. Warriors of Rock introduces Quest Mode, which tells the tale of a legendary axe, the Demigod of Rock and his imprisonment by The Beast. The rest is pretty much the Guitar Hero formula you've come to know and love/grown weary of.
