Neversoft's Brian Bright has told ONM that the Guitar Hero series lost its way when recent games in the series tried to please everyone.
Asked by ONM if Guitar Hero has lost its identity, the Guitar Hero project lead said "Yeah, I do. I think the first 3 had a very strong idea of rock n roll with very strong, very focused set lists and I think Metallica could fit in that bunch as well. World Tour we went to a full band and with Guitar Hero 5 we were trying to please everyone out there and I think in the end you end up not pleasing any one person a lot."
However, Bright is planning to win over Guitar Hero experts with Warriors Of Rock, a game that harks back to the glory days of Guitar Hero. "We wanted to make this game with a set list for people who liked Guitar Hero 3 and the challenge that it had. We don't have pop songs on there - it's mainly a rock n roll influenced game."
He also admitted that Neversoft has listened to the critics this time. "A few articles said [Guitar Hero 5] was a bit soulless. We wanted to put more into this game and give it its life back."
