Mastery Paragraph for Notes

Use this paragraph as part of your notes.  Remember that a copy of the paragraph is already on the note page you can download from Schoology.


          Just when you thought you'd played every song possible on a plastic instrument, “Guitar Hero 5” appears on the scene and feels like a brand new game.  The major selling point is the number and quality of songs you can play. From pop to punk, from Stevie Wonder to Nirvana, anybody can find something to like here.  The vocals have been upgraded with bigger karaoke lyrics, too.   The graphics have been vastly improved in this version, with attention to character detail. The only minor downside here is that the crowd does exactly the same thing: all their hands are up, moving at exactly the same time. The most interesting new mode is Rockfest, a mix and match of all the online games combined. So at one point you can be playing for highest points, and next you're playing a “tug of war” type battle, which is immense fun for all you competitive gamers out there.  Overall, this game is fun for the whole family and fans of previous “Guitar Hero” games will definitely enjoy this one, too.
