Recent stories in the news about Wii controllers flying off their D-grade safety straps and taking out Aunt Martha's urn are entertaining, to be sure -- but in terms of gamers really manhandling their controllers, nothing really holds a candle to a...

More features, more songs, more players... so why isn't there more rocking?

Guitar Hero II Review for the PS2

 

Encore!

Awesome song list; Harder than ever; But still the same great game; Co-op and Practice modes

Practicing sucks; Volume issues; No context

The Xbox 360 was supposed to be the headlining act last holiday season, but the show was stolen by a little known publisher named Red Octane, and their smash hit Guitar Hero. Combining normal rhythm gameplay, a great peripheral, and an oldies’ station...

Wannabe rock stars, this one goes out to you.

These are all factors that really come together to make Guitar Hero II a blast to play. The game is just as fun as the original if not more so, and rocking the guitar is really addictive. The addition of Widescreen/Progressive scan for those with HDTV...

Do you think RedOctane and Harmonix knew they had a mega hit on their hands when they released Guitar Hero almost a year ago to the day? With its innovative SG guitar controller and wildly addictive gameplay, it quickly garnered accolades and support...

Let me sum up Guitar Hero II with an anecdote. I was in the grocery store this past weekend when I heard a song playing over the P.A. I don't remember the name of it, just that it was an old 80s rock tune. As I stood there in the dairy section, all I...

Guitar Hero was something of a sleeper hit last year. Developer RedOctane delivered an excellent rhythm game that played quite unlike any other console game with its guitar controller and deep list of playable songs. Despite its pricey package, Guitar...

Guitar Hero 2 does nothing to change its predecessor’s direction. It’s essentially a fine-tuned update to last year’s hit, and that’s just fine with me. If you as much as watched someone else play the original, you simply can’t miss out on the sequel....

Take the stage for the greatest encore we've ever seen

That song from the start of Pulp Fiction ; Frenzied plucking ; Three-button chords

Addresses every criticism and packs in a load of new stuff. A masterclass in sequel-making.

Guitar Hero II

 

By yourself there are a few games that provide as much of a thrill, and when playing with friends Guitar Hero II reaches even greater heights, making it a must own game.

Two-player modes are brilliant ; Loads of tracks ; It feels great to play

Music isn't quite as good as the original's

Minor quibbles with the soundtrack aside (it really is excellent, just not as excellent as the first game's), Guitar Hero II is everything you'd want in a sequel to a rhythm-based game. It might be tailored more for experienced players than complete...
