Guitar Hero is one of the few games that allows you to rock out, even if you can't play guitar. It is worth the money, although it cost $70. I've read many good reviews. People claim, "It's the best game on PS2."
I first encountered Guitar Hero staying at my cousins' house, I was immediately drawn in. Although, it took me three days to finally complete a song, I had fun. I usually do not get addicted to video games, but I swear I can sit in front of Guitar Hero all day.
Guitar Hero is similar to the popular game Dance Dance Revolution. If you're not familiar with the game, it's pretty simple. DDR comes with a step pad. It will tell you to step on a button in a sequence.
Guitar Hero runs the same way. It comes with a controller shaped as a guitar. It will tell you to press one of the color fret buttons while strumming the "strum bar." This may sound boring, but it really isn't. Once you add a little music, it is a fun activity to do with friends, family, or by yourself.
The game comes with over thirty rock songs to play. Most of which you "earn" for performing well. Some of the songs include: Iron Man, I Love Rock and Roll, More than a Feeling, Ziggy Stardust, Infected, and many more.
In addition, the product features eight different avatars — ones that have a green mohawk to ones that remind me of the guy from the Beatles (I think it's the glasses, I really do). There's four different difficulty levels (Easy, Medium, Hard, and Expert).
The game has a two-player mode, which I haven't tried, because we only have one controller. Although, my sister and I can compete against each other for high scores. After you play a song, it will remind you of the top five highest scores of each song on each level.
