Qué pasa? Que Greatest Hits no deja de ser un recopilatorio muy poco ambicioso que no aporta ninguna novedad a nivel jugable a la serie, y que perfectamente podría haber llegado a través del sistema de distribución digital de Activision ahorrando así el importante desembolso que deben realizar los usuarios para hacerse con el juego. Será por tanto una decisión muy personal de los veteranos en la serie si Greatest Hits ofrece lo suficiente como para hacerse con él, siendo, eso sí, una compra más que recomendable para todos aquellos usuarios que quieran dar el salto al género de los juegos musicales o, también, para todos aquellos que no tuvieron ocasión de disfrutar de las primeras entregas de Guitar Hero; auténticos clásicos con un repertorio musical digno de estar en el Olimpo de los dioses del rock.

Smash Hits for the Wii pays great homage to Activision’s Guitar Hero franchise. To be able to replay some of the series most famous and infamous hits in their master track form was a delight. That being said, the franchise is less than four-years old and the game goes for the full price of a regular Guitar Hero title. Perhaps five years from now a greatest hits game would have been more appropriate but for now diehards may just want just pick this one up as an extended rental. Nevertheless, if you haven’t played a Guitar Hero game before then Smash Hits should be the first place you stop.

Consequently, I can only recommend this title to Guitar Hero enthusiasts that feel the band side of their collection is sorely missing the tracks included with this release. Everyone else out there could just as easily hold out for Guitar Hero 5, or wait for Smash Hits to hit the bargain bin or used section of their favorite game store.

Guitar Hero: Smash Hits is the definition of "milking". Sure, the setlist is great, and if you've somehow never played these tracks before, they're a ton of fun. Even if you have played them all, being able to sit down at the drums or try out your vocal abilities with them is great. However, there are a number of presentation issues that bother me (though they may not bother very casual players), and the fact that this wasn't either DLC or released as multiple track packs is a big mistake.

Sound good? Then you’ll be in heaven with this new pack, especially if you bought Guitar Hero Metallica and have the dual bass pedals going. If these seem a little tired to you or you don’t want to pay for the whole collection, maybe just hold off and see if these make their way into the online shop eventually.

Despite a few niggles with the note structure changes and the nagging feeling that this could have all been DLC, Greatest Hits is still a lot of fun. If you've been waiting to play some of the best tracks from previous games with your friends as a full band, you'll want to snap this up right away. If you're new to the series, though, last year's Guitar Hero World Tour offers better value for money and the ability to expand the track list through DLC.
At this point, Guitar Hero games have reached the same formula as annual sports franchises like Madden and Tiger Woods. The core gameplay remains unchanged from game to game with only incremental improvements and new songs to be found. It’s not a bad thing (yet). After all, there are only so many things that can be done to the basic playstyle without diluting it. It just means that Guitar Hero: Smash Hits contains absolutely no surprises. It may not be worth it to veterans of the series, but Smash Hits is a worthy investment for those who only started rocking after the series hit the Wii.

Guitar Hero: Greatest Hits bevat alle onderdelen van de eerste vijf Guitar Hero-games en een aantal dingen van de laatste twee, alleen mist de game gewoon te veel om echt Greatest Hits genoemd te worden. Bovendien lijkt Neversoft compleet vergeten te zijn de muziek te gebruiken van Guitar Hero: World Tour en Guitar Hero: Metallica en de animaties van de laatstgenoemde. Guitar Hero: Greatest Hits is gewoon geldklopperij. Alleen omdat de gameplay gewoon doeltreffend en leuk is en de muziek goed te pruimen, krijgt deze game nog een voldoende.
