4.0 out of 5 stars Great game, but lacking in some areas. November 12, 2006
By Steven
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Edition:Bundle with Guitar
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Guitar Hero 2 is a fine sequel to the original but there are some areas of the game that could have used a bit more polishing. Lets break it down...

In case you aren't familiar with the Guitar Hero series i'll provide a brief description of how the game plays.

First, if you don't have the first Guitar Hero then make sure you get the bundle package with the guitar. Although the game can be played with the dualshock controller you will find it MUCH more entertaining if you play with the guitar.

This game is played by strumming notes at the correct time as they come streaming down a fret board. You strum the notes by moving the "strum bar" either up or down. On the neck of the guitar are five buttons. You must hold the correct buttons and strum at the correct time in order to successfully hit the notes. You can perform hammer-ons and pull-offs on certain notes to make it a bit easier (once you get the hang of it... it takes practice). Some notes can be held. There is a visual indicator that shows which notes can be held. You can use the whammy bar on these notes for cool whammy effects. There is a rock meter that has a red, yellow and green section. If you are doing good you will stay in the green section but the more notes you miss the further down you go in the rock meter. If you continue to mess up then it's game over. Star shaped notes provide "star power" if successfully played. Star power doubles your multiplier (8X max with star power, 4X without) and also makes it much easier to bring your rock meter back into the green zone. To active star power you lift your guitar vertically in the air (or press the select button on the guitar).

The meat if this game is in the career section.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guitar Hero Totally Rocks! December 4, 2006
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Edition:Bundle with Guitar
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
We gave my son Guitar Hero II for his 11th birthday. He and my 15-year-old son both absolutely love it. So did my sons' 11- and 12-year-old friends at his birthday party. HUGE hit, they played for hours. The guitar is the controller, but you can also use PS2 controllers to play the game; some kids did that to play the bass track while someone else was playing the guitar. The player progresses from easy to hard and gets the chance to "win" fancier guitars, choose the name of his band, etc. It's creative and it's not violent, which is getting rare for video games that appeal to older teenagers. We may get another guitar for this game. Can I give it 6 stars???

5.0 out of 5 stars Complaints about the song list????? November 15, 2006
By Ink
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Edition:Bundle with Guitar
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is great, it is so much fun. I have nothing to compare this too because I never had a chance to play the first one. There is a funny thing happening here though, a lot of the reviewers are complaining that the songs are obscure and no one knows them, I completely disagree, the list is phenomonal I never expected them to get so many copyrighted songs on here. I am going to provide a list of the songs so everyone can check it out for them selves rather than have some kids who bitch because they dont know the classics (note: I am in no way calling all these songs classics, for example Avenged Sevenfold I personally think suck and shouldnt be on this game but hey the guitarist can throw together a slick solo).

1. Opening Licks

"Shout at the Devil" - Mötley Crüe

"Mother" - Danzig

"Surrender" - Cheap Trick

"Woman" - Wolfmother

"Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You Tonight" - Spınal Tap

2. Amp-Warmers

"Strutter" - KISS

"Heart-Shaped Box" - Nirvana

"Message in a Bottle" - The Police

"You Really Got Me" - Van Halen

"Carry On Wayward Son" - Kansas

3. String-Snappers

"Monkey Wrench" - Foo Fighters

"Them Bones" - Alice in Chains

"Search and Destroy" - Iggy Pop and The Stooges

"Tattooed Love Boys" - The Pretenders

"War Pigs" - Black Sabbath

4. Thrash and Burn

"Cherry Pie" - Warrant

"Who Was in My Room Last Night?" - Butthole Surfers

"Girlfriend" - Matthew Sweet

"Can't You Hear Me Knocking" - The Rolling Stones

"Sweet Child O' Mine" - Guns N' Roses

3.0 out of 5 stars Really fun but song selection is lacking. November 17, 2006
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Edition:Bundle with Guitar
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me preface this by saying that I'm 27 years old and I was familiar with roughly 80% of the new songs, but awareness and enjoyment don't always go hand in hand.

I read a lengthy preview of GH2 in Electronic Gaming Monthly and the designers stated that the reason you won't find classic Metallica/Zeppelin/AC-DC songs(etc....)in this game is because the rights are either too expensive or they are shared by band members scattered all over the earth.

Fair enough, but given the success of the franchise I would hope that for GH3 they pony up the cash for premiere songs.

No one will ever confuse "Tatooed Love Boys", "Psychobilly freakout", "Crazy on you" and "Rock this town" with "Master of Puppets", "2 minutes to midnight", "Sultans of swing" or "Stairway to Heaven".

My one other complaint is that for the experienced GH player, the expert mode is a bit on the easy side. The main reason why is that "Star Power" makes complicated passages and solos way too easy, which discourages players from actually taking the time to learn how to play the more difficult parts of each song. When star power is activated you really only need to successfully play about 1/5 of the notes correctly to progress, and that makes it easy to essentially skip the most difficult portions of each song.

With all that said, the game is still really fun and well worth buying. I've been playing Guitar for roughly 12-13 years and a lot of tunes that I was able to play on real guitar beguiled me in both Guitar hero 1 and 2, which I found to be a fascinating challenge.

The addition of practice modes and co-op play are also a ton of fun. The game allows for different difficulty settings for each player in co-op so my friend was able to jump right in and play despite his lack of experience.

As long as the developers aren't cheap and include a roster of more recognizable songs I'll be back for the third installment.
