Guitar Rock Tour is a great effort. It's a Guitar Hero beater (just about) but with more songs it would have been pretty special.
Game Shark (Dec 12, 2008)
It's a shame that the songs in Guitar Rock Tour aren't as strong as they should be, however even with this, the game provides a fun, albeit goofy, rhythm experience. The addition of drums helps to extend the replay value, as does the ability to play with another person over the DS's wireless connection. If you don't care about the quality of the covers, then you'll get more out of the game, but even the most serious of audiophiles will find some fun rocking their way to headliner status.

It is very hard not to compare Guitar Rock Tour to Guitar Hero and Rock Band. It is obvious that the developers did not have the budget that these other heavy hitters do, but Guitar Rock Tour is a decent attempt to cash in the current music game trend. But for the price of a full retail DS game, $29.99, it is harder to justify spending this amount when the player is getting less content and remixes of all the songs. It is not that this game is bad, it is just a little harder to justify a purchase when Guitar Hero does so much more.

Guitar Rock Tour restera dans l'ombre de Guitar Hero, la faute à une tracklist un peu maigre et à un petit manque de fun ou de challenge dans le gameplay. Pourtant, il est indéniable que l'on prend plaisir à jouer les partitions du jeu de rythme, que ce soit à la guitare ou à la batterie. Il s'impose donc comme une bonne alternative à Guitar Hero, surtout pour les joueurs qui débutent.

The game is a shadow of its more popular cousins. If you have an itch to rock out on your DS, then I think you know which way to go.

Guitar Rock Tour is a game clinging to the back of the (ahem) bandwagon, looking to siphon off a few dollars from people who either have no access to one of the full-blown music games, or just like the idea of rocking out on the go. GTR is a reasonable stab at a the genre, but spending an hour or two with it really only serves to remind you how much fun Guitar Hero and Rock Band really are, and that your money would be better used to bribe your way into the home of a friend who already owns either of the bigger, better games.

There’s also a two-player co-op wireless mode, though the fact that both players need the game make it seem unlikely you’ll use it much. Overall, this isn’t a bad game, but it really does feel like the other half is out there somewhere waiting to be found. If it were $15 or $20, we’d say give it a shot. But at press time, it’s $30, only ten dollars cheaper than the latest Guitar Hero game on DS. That doesn’t cost it any points in our numerical score (because prices can change), but it means we simply can’t recommend it at all.

Guitar Rock Tour is a wannabe Guitar Hero. In a time when music simulation games are going all out with original songs, bonus features and other goodies, Gameloft's bottom of the barrel effort fails to thrill.
UOL Jogos (Aug 24, 2009)
Mesmo buscando inspiração em uma fórmula consagrada há anos, "Guitar Rock Tour" decepciona pela produção extremamente simplória. A pequena lista de músicas, a qualidade deplorável delas e as mecânicas de controle desajeitadas tornam este jogo intragável mesmo para o mais aficionado dos gamers musicais.
