View Full Version : Guitar Heros Unite....

Who here plays? I dont have a PS2 but I go to Best Buy and Gamestop a few times a week for a couple of months and can bust out most songs on expert except freebird, jordan, and six( can play all the songs in GH1). Any other ppl on expert here or just like to play any level of it... This game is the bomb.

Oh Yeah, Feb third there is a National Guitar Hero 2 tourney in alot of gamestops around the US... just check at ur local gamestop to see if they are participating.

Rumor is they are taking the top expert players and doing a national finals also so ya might get a trip to somewhere :)

Cool how it turns out that best buy has Gh1 on display and gamestop has GH2 hehe... I constantly get my fill fo both games, very fun.

I'm going to get Guitar Hero II when it comes out for the 360 for many reasons. The controller looks SWEET, there is probably something new that'll be added that we dont know about, and downloadable content, like new songs!

I HAVE played it though, and even though I've been playing guitar for 5 years, I suck at that game....

I just started playing this brilliant game recently. Beat the Easy and medium tour. If I could just perfect my hammer-ons and pull-offs, I'd be set to move on to hard.

This game is pretty cool, but I rarely get the chance to play since the only place it's available is at the "youth" house at my church. I can only do normal on most songs, and can pull of a little bit on hard on a few songs. "Killing in the Name" and "Freebird" are definitely my favorites. But DDR is better, and I can do Heavy on most songs on it, so that keeps me happy.

I played this at a cousin's house over New Years. I am really bad, but I can play some songs on medium at best because I didn't devote my entire 3 days to guitar hero. I am really good at Get Ready 2 Rokk on medium, and I can kinda do Even Rats.

I wanna play it really bad, but I don't know anyone really with a PS2. At least none that have GH1 or 2 :(

I can play all songs on normal and currently none on hard but I haven't touched it in like a week.

Stupid school/track. :(

My baby needs to be played.

*goes to play*

I've heard rumors of a third game to be on PS3 and 360... I want a Wii version!

Uh...pardon my denseness, but...

Buy a guitar...?

Uh...pardon my denseness, but...

Buy a guitar...?

That's just like saying "Buy a skateboard" instead of playing Tony Hawk, or "go to a dance club" instead of playing DDR, or saying "go pilot a mech" instead of buying that really expensive controller for that one mech game on xbox...

...it's a fun game, with a unique guitar controller. it's not supposed to truly imitate playing a guitar, its for fun.

(not saying that playing guitar isn't fun, which it really really is, but that takes years of practice to become good at)

Guitar Hero 2 is godly.

Any game where I can play Sweet Child O Mine is a sexcellent game in my book.

I have an acoutsic Dreadnought with Gibson plat strings. :P... i guess thats why i can play on expert mode ^^

your local best buy will have guitar hero 1 on display for playing that is a nation wide thing... and most gamestops have guitar hero 2 on display.. so if you dont have a ps2 like me or not available at a buddies house you can go there and try it out.

Guitar Hero is a great game to play when you're drunk. :D

I didn't like the fact that all the songs are covers, but I guess you get used to it after a while.

Loel Phoenix, you got pwned by the sig police.

Anyway, there's not much they could do about the cover situation. It's expensive and time consuming and unless the artists themselves give permission there's no choice.

I just pimped out my SG controller with the Von Helion skin from eddie van halen(sale at toys r us for 9 bucks instead of 15)... I am airbrushing the bridge jet gloss-black with silver pearl frets and tuners... its gonna be tight... plus I added some key stickers here and there.

I wish I had enough time to make a SG controller out of a real guitar... I seen several around that ppl take cheap pawn shop guitars scrap the strings and add the SG controlls to them... that is the way to go but i dont have 72 hours to invest into something like that since i dont own a ps2 and only play frets on fire or freetar hero at the house. ill see if I can come up with some screens of real guitars made into SG's in an edit...
