But now Guitar Hero is here, and its a rhythm game with fantastic music and amazing gameplay. I've generally been a hater of the whole genre, but Guitar Hero made me a believer.
Graphics: Non-issue, especially in this genre. The note bar is very clear, colourful and you will enjoy staring at it for the duration of play. In the background it shows your band playing at whatever concert venue their at and the crowd cheering and all that cool stuff, too bad you cant look at it while your hammering down not after note, they get the job done but are so irrelevant especialy in this genre where you cant look at them I cant give them anything.
Music: Killer Queen, Take me out, Iron Man, Spanish Castle Magic, need I say more? This game is loaded with great songs, and some that while you may not find yourself listening too, are still fantastic and just seem to be worth listening to much more when your playing them, it adds so much to the listening experience. Sure the music is done by cover bands, but theyre damn good cover bands.
Gameplay: Alright heres the meat. The game comes with a fantastic arcade quality guitar controler. Although durable, you must resist the tempation to smash it on the ground for the encore, it will be the last thing you do with it. The game works by throwing a bunch of notes at you, you hold the right fret and strum on the strumb bar. There are long notes on which you must hold and use the whammy bar to manipulate the sound and get bonus points. Many advanced technieques like hammer-ons and pull-offs help you make smoother transitions between scaled chords.
Unlike most rythym games, it makes you feel it when you screw up, youre actually playing the guitar in it and the off beat strums and any missed notes will be noticed not only by you but the angry crowd, it gives it a much more rewarding feel. While playing this game well, you feel like a !@#$ing god of rock, nothing is more stimulating for the ego than rocking it down with Iron Man! "I AM !@#$ING IRON MAN BITCHES! AAAAAAAAAH!"
Overall 10/10- I know you think that its insane to give it that, but as far as rhythm games go, guitar hero is the best, and its flawlessly executed. If you dont like the genre too bad, but otherwise you will be loving this game to death. The extra large price tag may drive you away, but its more than worth it. Today I played from 11 AM to 11 PM, and it was !@#$ing fun. Now if you excuse me, I must go play Take Me Out.
