Earlier, I mentioned it took me three days to complete a song. Needless to say, I'm not very good at video games. Amanda, the sister, on the other hand, rocks. She completed a song on her second try and rules the high score board. When she beat my score on Ziggy Stardust, my last high score remaining, I nearly cried... she drives me crazy.
Although, it doesn't actually teach you how to play guitar, it is still good fun and it seems like you actual are playing. Because, if you don't hit a note, you won't hear it play. Also, you don't have to be interested in learning to play guitar to have fun. I know this because I absolutely have no desire to learn to play.
So, I totally give Guitar Hero two thumbs up. It is worth the money, it's fun and entertaining. It features great music, and makes a great present. I know this, because I got it for my sister. But I will warn you, once you start, you can't stop.
Guitar Hero is rated T (Teen) by the ESRB for Mild Lyrics.
