Guitar Hero (PS2)

A Review

This game is one of my favorites, I remember being many hours playing this game, dat memories.
I was one of the lucky ones to be able to get this game on its release date, I have to mention that it was not cheap, but it was worth it.

It's about notes of songs, There are five buttons, each with its respective colour, Each note will go down the mast you'll have to "touch" them And you earn money. 
Is simple, although it seems very easy and repetitive, believe me it is not so!
the game is harder than it looks, It took me several tries to win the first songs, And each song has different speeds, and completely different notes.
for example, "Iron man" from black sabbath Is composed almost entirely of long notes.
on the other hand, "I Wanna Be Sedated" from The Ramones Has fast notes close together.
If you play perfect you will win more money, Money you can use to buy more things like characters, guitars and songs

I have to say that the song selection was "quite accurate" Many songs are very well known, Although you do not have the slightest idea of which band I created this song.
It should be noted that almost all songs (except bonus songs) Are covers, What does this mean? That the original singer does not sing, But the employees of harmonix.
In general i was ok, But some songs could be better An example is the song "take me out" form franz ferdinand, To say that it was horrible would not be the right thing, but that was perfect either?
I also have to highlight the bonus songs. Many of the songs are horrible. you do not believe me? Then listen to "Farewell Myth" by Made in MexicoIt's one of the bonus songs And is considered one of the worst songs for guitar hero according to the community.

Although I must point out that not everything is lost! There are good bonus songs. Here a mini list of memorable bonus songs

Fire It Up from black label society - Good use of wah-wah pedal
Guitar hero from monkey steals the peach - Exclusive punk song for the game
get ready 2 rokk from freezepop - Is a fun song, and is played with synthesizer
cheat on the church from graveyard BBQ - Looks like a "worn" death metal song, And it's fun

The characters are quite recognizable, Each with their tastes, and an exclusive guitar neck, Choose the one that best suits your tastes

It is worth noting that each one has its own dances, And star power moves
examples, Johnny napalm jumps in the style of sex pistols, Clive winston does the duck walk.
There are two hidden characters, I highly recommend that you unlock it, it's worth it.

Some additional notes

I have to admit I was surprised to see that there was a multiplayer, But be disappointed to see the quality of it, I would have liked it to be cooperative, But some battles are not bad at all.

The animations of the NPC could be better, To start the bass player plays wrong notes, and does not even have fingers! Or if the song is very fast, everything is out of control

Although the list of songs is not very long it is possibly one of the best

This game has my seal of approval!
It's fun and I recommend it, If you have a chance to try it, do it!

PD: If you think you can improve my engrish let me know

Pros & Cons

  • Is a rather interesting concept, There were not many rock music games
  • The guitar is not mandatory, you can use a dualshock 2
  • The music is pretty good, I was quite surprised
  • Graphically is splendid.
  • The angle of the neck
  • The animations of the characters are a little "loose"
  • Bonus songs almost not worth it
  • The multiplayer mode might have been better, be disappointed
  • The gameplay of dualshock is more difficult, especially in long notes
  • The game is difficult to get used to, requires a lot of practice, Making it difficult to find rivals
