RedOctane's follow-up to the critically acclaimed rhythm game, Guitar Hero II comes to Xbox 360 and features a huge track list, more venues and new play modes than in the original game, and a goal to rock longer and harder than its predecessor. In this new release RedOctane has once again teamed up with veteran music game developer Harmonix for the sequel, and is using famed recording studio WaveGroup for its music production, who also recorded the covers for the licensed tracks in the original Guitar Hero.

I bought Guitar Hero 2 originally for Playstation 2 when it first came out and then it out later for Xbox 360 so I bought this game also because it had better graphics and some extra songs.This game is really fun I can play it for hours and not get bored of it.I play it on medium because I find it difficult to press the orange button on hard mode.This game has a lot of great songs,but not all of the songs are good,some of the cover songs are not done very well like "Killing In The Name","Them Bones",and "Institutionalized". Besides the covered songs the rest of the game is fun and I think this game has better songs than Guitar Hero 3. This game has a unlockable songs,costumes,and guitars.My guitar that came with X-plorer guitar which is my favorite guitar,I own the Les Paul guitar and its not as comfortable.I do think that these games should have more newer bands like Chevelle,Three Days Grace,Breaking Benjamin,and Bullet For My Valentine.

My favorite songs are "Freebird","Crazy On You","Them Bones"and "Laid To Rest".

Pros: 70 songs,unlockable costumes,comfortable guitar,hours of fun,difficult on hard and expert modes,improved graphics

Cons: should of got newer bands,covered songs

Though my purchase is recent (and for the Xbox 360), my experience with GH2 is from long ago (2007) and far away (the PS2). Though they don't have the multi-instrument capability of the newest GH titles (and of course, Rock Band), the original GH games are great fun, and are well worth the current reduced asking prices. Solid solo & co-op gameplay and great head-to-head matchups plus a very good setlist (I'm still waiting for "Crazy On You" to show up in Rock Band) make this game a must have for any serious rhythm game fan. Just don't forget that you need a Guitar Hero controller.

Hangar 18, Madhouse, Shout at the Devil, Killing in the Name, Heart Shaped Box etc it's amazing how many good songs they were able to include in the early installments of guitar hero until they run out. Yea the covers aren't all that great but if you're a rocker I recommend grabbing this one.

I owned and played the heck out of the original Guitar Hero, and managed to get everyone I knew into it. Yet for some reason I skipped GH2 when it first came out, and didn't return to the series until GH3. I was very disappointed in GH3, but when I saw GH2 on sale for the new 360 I bought it - and fell in love with the series again.

As a sequel GH2 picks up and improves upon almost every aspect of the original. Co-op mode was a great idea, and there's a better mix of genre/decade songs than the original. The game offers a few genuinely challenging songs and is for the most part more difficult than the original. However for those, like me, who played GH3 first and wanted to try something else in the series GH2 is a lot easier. That's not a bad thing - at times it felt like GH3 was artificially adding button combinations or notes in order to ramp up the difficulty. To put it shortly, GH2 is an improvement in gameplay (as much as rhythm based games can be different) from both its predecessor and its first successor.

However, since we're comparing the game to its sequel, the most painfully obvious difference is the lack of master tracks. The covers aren't terrible but the fact that there aren't more original recordings is pretty disappointing. For some this won't make the least bit of difference, for others it can be jarring. It all boils down to how you feel about covers in general. Another potential fault is the DLC area. The tracks you can download are a bit pricey, but if you're willing to pay they definitely help prolong the experience.

GH2 is still my favorite of the original three GH games. It has a great mix of music, it just "feels" a lot smoother than its sequel, and the new multiplayer mode definitely adds a lot more to the series.

I purchased this after playing Guitar Hero III. I wanted to play more songs and the game isn't bad. It was designed for an older platform so the graphics are a little wonky but otherwise it's a solid game.

This is when my GH addiction started. I started on PS2 but then I went 360...

GH II is one of the best versions out there because of the song list in my opinion.

Whenever I feel down, I shred me some FREEBIRD!

I purchased this game for a second time after playing it for a year or so around release. Despite that many are familiar with it from before, it is still a party favorite and proves to remain enjoyable for most!
