Guitar Hero II Review

 

Are you ready for it? The latest installment of Guitar Hero is here and it's packing a massive list of songs for everyone to rock out to!

In the end Guitar Hero II may seem like a title that isn't for everyone but given a bit of time the game grows, not only to friends, but to family and strangers that feel captivated to pick up a guitar and just give their best to a single game,...

A couple weeks ago, I watched as video gamers took over nearly a quarter of my nearest Best Buy. I saw everything from pre-teens accompanied by their moms to the local DDR freaks to the hosts a local video podcast, GameLife. What would gather all...

Guitar Hero was one of the best rhythm games I had ever seen, but Guitar Hero II improves upon it in nearly every way. Sure, there are a few minor issues that could still be improved, and the song choice could be a little sharper. And just where is...

Shout! Shout! Shout at the Devil!

Finally, there's the expected extras. New characters have been added, including Casey Lynch (Casey! You make a hot chick!). There's new lead guitar models, bass guitars, and guitar skins as well as alternate outfits for the guitarists. The stages are...

The designers also did a fantastic job of creating a realistic sequence of notes from each piece of music, so you actually feel like you are playing the song regardless of bass, rhythm, or lead variations. The notes match the beat or tone and move up...

Guitar Hero II Review

 

Guitar Hero II is one of the best games of 2006.

All of this would be useless, however, if the song selection wasn't meaningful. Anyone can take a learning tool and try to embrace it, but it's hard to do that without any ideal source material. Fortunately, the Harmonix team knows its way around a...

Coming to the Xbox 360 and PS2 is Guitar Hero II – with the PS2 version coming this November and the Xbox 360 version coming early next year, right now February is looking likely. The games are essentially the same, with 64 total songs to play through....

I’m not going to bother to explain the heart of the gameplay, which is the music/rhythm timing/matching … well, either you’re familiar with the game and how it works or you should read up on the original (such as our review) to see how things play out....

The revamped co-op mode plays like a mixture between the original's single and multiplayer mode as both players are tied to the same rock meter, a single star power, and a single combo meter. Meaning that your friend could mess up your entire perfect...

E3: Guitar Hero II Preview

 

It,s everything you loved from the first game and more, so why aren,t you excited for this game? Well that,d better change quickly; Guitar Hero 2 rocks, and it,s something that all gamers should at least attempt once in their lifetime.

This is the game that got me hooked onto the plastic-instrument-interactive-thing craze. My friend showed it to me; I thought I could do it, so had a bash at RATM on medium and found it oddly addictive and entertaining. More refined than GH1 and with...

Huge roster of songs to choose from ; Two player co-op mode fun to play, and adds plenty of content ; Still as much fun to play as the first ; More difficult than the original

Song list not as good as the first ; Co-op mode sometimes feels like you're not playing together ; More difficult than the original

An expanded song list, great multiplayer and the introduction of a much needed practice mode all add up to make Guitar Hero II a worthy sequel. While the songs themselves may not be as fun to play as the first, Guitar Hero II is still a must have title...
