4.0 out of 5 stars Not more of the same 14 Dec 2006
By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This, in principle, is the same as the first guitar hero but the reality is that it differs slightly and may not appeal to all.

Whereas the first game had a slow learning curve with the difficulty level building slowly this is far less forgiving and soon becomes more complicated and difficult to play.

If you haven't tried guitar hero then the principle is simple, you get a replica of a guitar with 5 coloured buttons on the neck which replicate the strings and a toggle on the body that you have to strum at the same time as you hit the coloured buttons. As each song plays a fretboard is shown on the screen along with the buttons you need to hit in order to match the guitarist on screen.

It's well thought out and when you're bashing away it really does have a 'lifelike' feel to it.

If you haven't tried it yet then go for the 1st one as it will ease you into the strategy more gently and also contains more songs you are likely to know.

Guitar hero 2 has some interesting new features,( as well as lead guitar you can also play rythymn and bass), and better multiplayer options. But it is a lot harder than the 1st game with the notes you have to play soon flying towards you and before long there are combos that will truly test your skill and patience. Also the songs selected are likely to be unknown to you if you're not a bit of a metalhead.

All in all this is good value for money and if you have played the 1st game and enjoyed it then go for it and powerchord 'til yer fingers go numb, if your new to it then try the original, squeeze yourself into those old jeans, leather jacket and boots and shred 'til yer dead ...

5.0 out of 5 stars For those who are about to rock, we salute you 12 Feb 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I first played this game at my friends and enjoyed it so much i bought it the next morning.

It is so much fun and better than using a tenis racket to pretend to be a rock legend.

There is such a good variety of songs from many artists and styles that there is something for everyone.

If you like the dance mat games this is the same format but if you're like me and don't have the speed and dexterity of Michael Flattly and failed miserably at balance and speed, this is easier as it's at your finger tips instead.

The more you play the more you get into it with characters to unlock as well as guitars, songs and other items.

This game merits 5 stars and is great for party play.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best game ever? 10 Nov 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The first Guitar Hero is the most addictive game I've ever played, I've been playing just about every day since it came out in April! It's far and away my favourite game, but after playing a demo of GH2, it looks like the best is about to get even better! The practice mode, new co-op and face-off modes, and the tweaks to the hammer-on/pull-off system make the game much easier on the harder difficulties and more fun for groups of players. The songlist is a bit different from the first in that the songs are designed to appeal to fans of all types of guitar music, but don't let that put you off, only songs that are great fun to play made it in, including Strong Bad's awesome TROGDOR! I'm looking forward to another 8 months of fun at least when this comes out. Rock on!

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
For those that haven't played the first guitar hero, the game is one of the most easy, fun, playable experiences, that has hit consoles for a long time. When most games coming out, looking like just another GTA, e.g. Scarface, Just Cause, Godfather..... I could go on, you will need a game that you can enjoy more than anything.

Being a sequel to such a successful game, Guitar Hero 2 needed a few things,

1) A killer soundtrack, just as good or better than the original

2) Better more interactive story mode

3) More multiplayer options

And Guitar Hero 2 has all of those things. The soundtrack is out of this world, with great hits from some of the worlds biggest, heaviest bands. To name a few (full list above)

1) Black Sabbath- War Pigs

2) Avenged SevenFold- Beast And The Harlot

3) And the insane full version of Free Bird!

The new multiplayer options just make this game one of the best multiplayers around, with options for bass, lead or backup guitars. Which if your in a band already will impress you no end.

And with a more interractive story, starting from a battle of the bands at your local highschool, to playing on the Vans tour in America.

This game is one of the most adictive games around, and if you are into alternative music, this will be the game of the decade for you. If you havent bought the original, do so now, because you are going to need to get some practice in, when this game has over 50 tracks of pure rock/metal madness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Become a guitar god overnight! 27 Dec 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
So I've had the game for just over 24 hours (being a Xmas present) and already I know that I should really be in front of a few 1,000 metal fans, riffing the night away.

I don't have the first version of this game, but that's not stopped me enjoying this one, progressing from easy to medium stages within a day. I must admit, though, that expert does look only possible by Eddie Van Halen!

This is truly addictive, and, although the songs do get harder pretty quick, the training mode allows you to work those fretboards until RSI sets in. I can't play a real guitar, but already I'm doing chord progressions.

The game itself is very simple - reate a band (make up a name, choose a guitar) and join battle of the band tournaments around the US playing to unforgiving metal fans. Play a few bum notes and you'll soon be booed off. Give em what they want and they'll ask you for an encore.

Some tracks are a bit obscure, but anything with a Butthole Surfers track is ok by me.

Even caters for left-handers.

Let's rock!
