Guitar Hero II (Xbox 360) by Activision Box Art

North Amercian Release Date: April 3, 2007.

Average Overall Score:
9.30 / 10

I play mostly rhythm guitar, but I am also trained in classical guitar, and a little of lead guitar playing. Anyway, I was really excited about this game because I had played a little bit of it back at CES earlier this year. To finally be able to spend time with the game was really a prospect I was looking forward to."

RedOctane’s follow-up to the critically acclaimed rhythm game. Guitar Hero II features a brand-new and expanded track list, more venues and new play modes, and aims to rock longer and harder than its predecessor. 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. The game’s all-important track list encompasses all forms of rock and metal music including classic rock, "hair metal", heavy metal, modern rock and alternative rock. In total, Guitar Hero II features more than 55 songs. New modes include a multiplayer co-op mode where players can play not only the lead guitar track, but rhythm or bass as well, allowing players to take on two different sections of the song simultaneously. Supports the Guitar Hero SG controller.

Overall: This is Definitly my favorite game on the PS2. It never gets boring.I am very good at this game. I am on Expert Career right now.

Gameplay: The Gameplay is just like the first one. Strum and hold down fret button at the same time. One thing that I liked was all the new guitars and outfits you could unlock. I like the Snakoctapuss or something like that.
Graphics: Good, but visuals arent one of the big things for this game. Even though the charecter Desighn is very good, I don't really care for them. I just love the gameplay.
Sound: I like the songs on this game, but I don't think the song list was as good as the first one.
Suggestions: I would like, in guitar Hero 3, to have all the songs from the first and second one, to be on the third one, including some new songs.
