5.0 out of 5 stars will it rock you? 6 April 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
i picked up this game today and have spent the last 4 hours playing it non-stop. Within minutes me and friends were blasting our way through some classic rock tracks. I play regular guitar but am having a blast playing along side some amazingly well covered version of famous songs. Friends who have never held a guitar before were equally impressed and able to play.

Graphics are crisp and clean and adequate - but they aren't really something that you will pay too much attention too. The user interface is neat and easy and the guitar controller is just perfect (i'm left handed and you have the ability to switch the guitar to "lefty" mode at the start of each song which was a great help). The quality of the songs is second to none - I had trouble distinguishing them from the real thing; they are varied in style and the difficulty ranges from easy to utterly impossible so I don't think longevity is a problem.

The only dissapointment is the lack of Live multiplayer option - something i really hope is addressed. The price is more than justified with the inclusion of the controller which makes this game so much fun

In summary - this game is going to bring everyone round the xbox, few games I've played have had such a reaction or the ability to put such a cheesy smile on peoples faces. Go get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch out Jimmy Page 14 April 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I had played this on the PS2 at a party and thought it was great fun while waiting behind a queue of adult guitar heroes for my turn. And it was. So when I saw the xbox version, I took the plunge.

Set up is dead simple and you'll be playing within minutes, and although initially you feel it could take forever to learn even the basic stuff, the game soon pulls you in with your score and competence slightly increasing with every song. More than that though, it's just great fun and had me laughing out loud as the game seemed to try it's hardest to make it just that wee bit beyond my present ability. Typing this, I'm itching to go back and have another go to see if I can finally manage that first song on Easy level! I had a look at some of the Expert level stuff and wondered can anyone ever get to that level? I bet they can, but by that time they will have forgotten what it is to have a life.

A brilliant game from the word go, I'm looking forward to hours of not quite mindless entertainment on this, which is what all the best games are about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock'o'rama! 9 April 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I can't really say anything that any of the fine people to review this before me haven't. I'd just like to reinforce how absolutely essential this game is. I bought it the other day about an hour after playing the ps2 version at a friends house and have not stopped playing it since! The only quibble I have is that, when attempting to "rock out" (flip-up-the-controller thing)it might take a few tries and seems a lot less sensitive than the ps2 version. Then again maybe it's just mine. Forget your fancy graphics, storylines and headshots. All you need is your xplorer, some space and a *lot* of practice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Years of fun 7 May 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've waited months and months for this to come out, and it was worth every second! It starts off easy, with a good training mode, then they crank it up little by little until you really feel like you're rocking out.

It's a brilliant game for a night in with some mates, as there's something for everyone to have a go at, and there's so many songs you won't get bored for ages.

Longevity is pretty good too, as the harder levels require a lot of practice.

You won't notice the time slipping by until your fingers start to hurt and your eyes are dry from staring at the telly.

Don't just sit there, go buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars IT ROCKS 11 April 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is quite simply a truly ingenious, highly addictive game which I cant praise highly enough. Taking on the interactive music genre started off by Segas Samba De Amigo the games interface and controls are simple to pick up but nigh on impossible to master. The choice of music is great and the sense of achievment when you pull off a riff is huge. Since buying this game for my daughter I cant get off it, both my nephews are so into it they are actually starting to learn to play the real thing. The only problem with the real thing is that itll be some time before Im playing in front of a packed out stadium.Genius!

5.0 out of 5 stars COOL 31 July 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have worshipped Guitar Hero since it came out. Every time I went to my mate's house I demanded a go on it and we would spend the whole sunny day indoors, me gleefully playing along through the whole playlist. GH 2 comes out and I demand goes on that, and when it's anounced for 360 I order one as soon as I can scrape the money together.
Now it isn't just a now and again treat however, I have noticed some problems. The game is way too short on medium and the difficulty gap between medium and hard is way too large. There is no happy average setting really. I am completely stuck on set 6 on hard.
The playlist now seems quite small after playing it through over and over, and the downloadable stuff is very limited. Also, the Explorer shaped guitar makes it a little less comfortable than the PS2 SG, but this is no big problem.
But despite these minor troubles, this is a fantastic and original game well worth your money.
