Guitar Hero Review

 

The game that made rock-n-roll a little geeky.

Single player mode takes you through the venues of a band on the rise. Your band starts off with a concert at someone's house then to larger venues until you finally reach a stadium. Each venue has you play a set list of songs whose difficulty will...

Have you ever rocked out on an air guitar? Have you ever wished you could rock out on a real guitar, but found that pesky lack of talent getting in the way? Well, now you can rock out on a miniature Gibson SG plastic guitar, courtesy of Red Octane....

You rock. You just don't know it yet

Great sense of humor about itself ; Excellent soundalike cover tunes ; Less embarrassing than dancing games

Plastic guitar feels less than sturdy ; No jamming? Can't improvise notes ; No online play

Put down the air guitar and step away from the mirror. Your days merely pretending to be a rock & roll demigod are over. Guitar Hero makes your dreams of six-string superstardom come true ... as long as you don't mind strapping bits of plastic to your...

If you kind of like the idea of a music-based "rhythm" game but are concerned with how Dance Dance Revolution (and its many clones) might make you look with all that strutting around, then have I got a game for you. Harmonix, creators of...

Harmonix has another excellent game on their hands with Guitar Hero, but the reliance on an uncomfortable controller not only raises the game's price but it also is just sometimes too much effort to even want to play. It'd help if I was actually...

Be the rockstar you always knew you were with Red Octane's PS2 game.

I cannot stress how much fun the game is. It is a unique feel on gameplay, and even if you hate the songs that are being played, you will enjoy the game. It is extremely fun to play, and you do not feel like you are wasting time. If you were thinking...

To all those gamers out there that think Dance Dance Revolution is a little too nerdy, but want to get in on the rising popularity of rythym games, your answer has arrived. In fact, Guitar Hero is so good that anyone with a Playstation 2 needs to get...

It's like DDR mixed with coolness.

One nice thing about Guitar Hero, and really any music game, is that it never really ends. Players will need to practice songs in the Free Play mode if they intend to ever beat every song on Career mode. This actually leads to the only problem I had...

I'm going to make this short. Guitar Hero is not a music rhythm game in the same vein as Dance Dance Revolution. Where the venerable “dance” franchise has people moving and groovin' to some songs that prove to have been popular on the dance floor,...

Great song selection ; A new take on the genre ; Guitar controller fun to use ; Southpaw inclusion

Difficulty level ramps up severely about 2/3 of the way in ; Not enough "strum" action

Here's hoping that the game sells well enough not only for a sequel, but that other bands see the benefit of having their songs on here. More please!
