Did You Know?


Many references to This Is Spinal Tap (1984) are made: - In the sound option menu, everything can be turned up to 11. - A loading screen urges you never to "just jam" when the crowd wants an encore and you're out of songs. - After playing "Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You Tonight", the drummer spontaneously combusts (but only if you play in Nilbog High, the first venue).

I'm a Guitar Hero! Are you?!?!
9 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

Once again, Guitar Hero II is a flawless game just like the original! I think not just hard-rockers should get this game, but EVERYONE must get this game! To show what REAL music is all about!

Just like the first one, you're a guitarist in a rock band that tries to reach the top (again, but who's complaining?) with some interesting and kick-ass obstacles on the way! In this new one, they add in a lot of special features like Cooperative mode (you and your partner chooses who would play bass, guitar, lead guitar, or rhythm guitar) is pretty much the most coolest mode in multi-player. What they also have during your career mode is an "encore" (fans what to hear more of you so you play another song that is not from the original play-list but you make big money from it). And finally, of course, they got a great soundtrack from recognizable groups like Alice In Chains, Nirvana, Black Sabbath (again!), Stone Temple Pilots, Megadeth (again!), Lynyrd Skynrd, KISS, Van Halen and so many others!

Another cool thing about this game is that its compatible with the first Guitar Hero controller and i thought that was pretty cool so I don't need to spend another one, but the new one does look very nice though. It's just the same guitar but a different color.

The only thing that I was totally bummed about was that Graveyard BBQ wasn't in this one because of some lame argument with Harmonix but whatever. Graveyard BBQ Rules! In conclusion, go out there, get the game, and ROCK 'N' ROLL ALL NIGHT AND PARTY EVERYDAY, HEROES!!!!
