Guitar Hero 

Sony PlayStation 2


Guitar Hero
Sony PlayStation 2
Guitar Hero is a rhythm-based game like Dance Dance Revolution and Amplitude. The game comes with a half-scale guitar with five buttons on its neck, a whammy bar and "string" to pluck when prompted. The notes scrolling towards you correspond to the five buttons on the neck. Points are awarded for timing and accuracy. It's a shame that you can't focus on the visuals for the on-stage antics as you, the Guitar Hero, rock out to such standards as "Ziggy Stardust" or a Sum 41 tune. The learning curve of the game is slow and the guitar controller is a hoot. When you're really rockin' out, lift the neck so it's perpendicular to the ground to get extra points. If you have two "guitars," you can trade licks in an onstage, heads-up battle.
