Guitar Hero 5's World Tour import feature is bullsh*t

Guitar Hero 5's World Tour import feature is bullsh*t  photo



The Guitar Hero franchise is one of the most saturated and whored-out franchises there is, with a new main sequel every year and plenty of spin-offs in between. Fortunately, Activision made the deal a little sweeter by kindly offering to let players import songs from Guitar Hero: World Tour to the freshly released Guitar Hero 5. The bad news?

Dtoid reader "Joker's Boner" discovered that the much-lauded import feature doesn't even come close to supporting World Tour's full tracklist. In fact, you can only import 35 of World Tour's 85 songs to the new game. After all the bluster about not having to swap discs and being able to play your old favorites in a brand new game, this ridiculous compromise has fallen way short of expectations. The info's now made its way to Wikipedia, but for some reason nobody else has noticed what utter horsecrap this all is.

Even worse, you are being expected to pay for this farce. Activision will take $3.50 (250 MS Points) for you to download a 1.27GB "GHWT Disc Import" file. Meanwhile, Rock Band 2 let you download all but a few tracks from the Rock Band 1 playlist for five bucks. I think we can all see what the better deal here is. 

Even when Activision tries to offer something to its audience, it can't help throwing in a little bit of evil. What absolute fail. Hit the jump to find out what songs have been deemed worthy of import.

[Update: Word from Activision is that the import list isn't definitive. While these 35 tracks are the ones available right now, the list will be updated as licenses for songs are cleared and the tracks are updated to take advantage of Guitar Hero 5's new features.]
