I’m under no illusions that android is not (yet?) a gaming platform. I’ve found precious few games which are worth keeping on my phone. However I do have some standards and Guitar Hero World Tour Mobile (Demo) fell far below those standards.
The game weighs in at around 7mb which, for a phone with only 74mb for all applications and operating system, that’s a sizeable chunk. I could forgive this rudeness if it weren’t for the absolutely useless gameplay.
I’ve played Guitar Hero on the PS2 and the Wii, as well as Tap Tap revenge on the iPod Touch so I know what the deal is. The problem with this version is that it’s so jerky and jumpy that it’s impossible to be in time. I tried several times and never made it past 30 seconds into a track. I’m no genius at Guitar Hero but I can usually complete a track on the first few difficulty levels. I made sure that I had nothing big running in the memory and went back to try again – to no avail.
I’d much rather shell out on independent games that are more fun (and significantly cheaper)
Do yourself a favour and don’t bother with this turkey.
