Guitar Rock Tour 2 Review
- Unlockables and achievement trophies are a nice addition to gameplay.
- The controls are easy and fun to use and the visuals are detailed and crisp.
- Some small lag issues when playing on harder songs and most tracks are cover versions, not masters.
May be a little pricy for some, but if you’re a Music/Rhythm game nut, then the freedom to rock out anywhere will be well worth the price.

In the tradition of console music/rhythm games, Guitar Rock Tour 2 puts you up on stage playing a number of classic Rock and Roll tracks. With 16 tracks available and the option to play drums, as well as guitar, there's plenty of musical content to keep you rocking on your iPhone.
The controls are the usual rhythm game style, where notes fall from the top screen and you hit them in time to the music, but now players tap their fingers on the screen to hit the notes. At times you might wish you had smaller, faster fingers to hit all the notes, but the controls are easy to use and will not give you any extra grief.
The visuals are very detailed and presented in full 3D. Everything from the venue locations to the characters are sharp and distinct. There is a surprising amount of customisation and unlockables in the game, including new guitars and finishes. The current tracklist of 16 songs spans across the musical genres and also offers the option to download more tracks. A multiplayer battle mode is also available online, where attacks can be thrown back and forth while trying to get the highscore.
If you are a fan of Music/Rhythm games then this is a must have. The two different instrument modes, three levels of difficulty and decent track list present players with an engaging music game experience, while the in-game unlockables, achievement trophies and multi-player gives Guitar Rock Tour 2 plenty of replay value.
