    This review is from: Guitar Hero 2 (Video Game)

    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 hard to press the orange button on hard mode.This game has a lot of fantastic songs,but not all of the songs are excellent,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 reckon 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 pet guitar,I own the Les Paul guitar and its not as comfortable.I do reckon that these games should have more newer bands like Chevelle,Three Days Grace,Breaking Benjamin,and Bullet For My Valentine.

    My pet songs are “Freebird”,”Crazy On You”,”Them Bones”and “Laid To Rest”.

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

    Cons: should of got newer bands,covered songs

    Still best in the series, despite lack of master tracks, June 7, 2009

    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 like with the series again.

    As a sequel GH2 picks up and improves upon very nearly every aspect of the original. Co-op mode was a fantastic thought, 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 hard than the original. But for those, like me, who played GH3 first and wanted to try something else in the series GH2 is a lot simpler. That’s not a terrible thing – at times it felt like GH3 was artificially adding button combinations or clarification in order to ramp up the difficulty. To place it shortly, GH2 is an enhancement in gameplay (as much as rhythm based games can be different) from both its predecessor and its first successor.

    But, 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 sweet disappointing. For some this won’t make the smallest amount 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 certainly help prolong the experience.

    GH2 is still my pet of the original three GH games. It has a fantastic mix of music, it just “feels” a lot smoother than its sequel, and the new multiplayer mode certainly adds a lot more to the series. If you loved GH3 and are looking for more, if you like the guitar experience on full band games, or if you want to get into the genre with no social class experience I highly recommend you check out GH2.

    Plus, who can argue with a game that has a SPINAL TAP song on it?

    Don’t get me incorrect I like all the songs on this game I’m just not used to hearing these terrible covers. I Mean the guys who did Woman, Free Bird, Laid to Rest and Last Child completely sucked while the covers of Heart Shaped Box, Madhouse, and Jessica were incredible. but that’s me stating my opinion. And plus the graphics of this game are not that fantastic compared to GH 3, Aerosmith, or Metallica. But this game is excellent on the sense you get to try something new that you absoloutely loved to hear while growing up listening to your parents Records or 8 Tracks. But sometimes you will be like me and get irrated when somebodys cover just ruins it for ya.
