I ordered Guitar Hero II (XBox 360) for my 20-yr-old son for Christmas through Buy.com's website. Fast and free shipping made this purchase worthwile in itself. However, the product ROCKS! We truly enjoyed playing Guitar Hero II for hours on end... beating the whole game. Yes, even me... the mom! The game absolutely stimulates one's creative mind requiring coordination and good finger dexterity at all levels. We liked it so much, we also bought Guitar Hero III. Read More

Guitar Hero 2 for Xbox 360

on 10/26/2008

The graphics are lame on this game. There are no additional downloads available. The button you must use for star power on controller is very awkward to achieve while also playing the notes. I'd say skip this version and buy GH3 Read More

Review Buckethead, why must you torment me so? The KFC-helmeted guitarist's frenetic composition Jordan is far and away the biggest challenge of Guitar Hero II, and one of many pleasant surprises packed into the rocking sequel. Honestly, we'd have been content with some new songs, a practice mode and multiplayer handicapping, but Harmonix and RedOctane have jammed so much more into this sequel, and done it with such style, that we'd give Guitar Hero II 6 stars if we could. With 64 songs, co-op play, bass and rhythm guitar lines, expanded stats breakdowns, widescreen support and even a "lag offset" feature, Guitar Hero II rocks even harder than we hoped it would.

Review Guitar Hero II, the anticipated follow-up to last year's biggest sleeper hit, wants you to be a rock god. The part air-guitar, part rhythm game for PlayStation 2 delivers more axe grinding action to an entirely new rock 'n' roll soundtrack. The good news -- it's better than we could have imagined...Guitar Hero II on the PlayStation 2 stands tall, with devil horns fully extended on both hands. Visually, the presentation is a knockout, the play list is impressive, and the numerous modes are all worth experiencing, particularly co-op and practice. Denying oneself the glory of Guitar Hero II is unacceptable, even if another instrument is preferred. It's one of the best games of the year, as well as one of the best music/rhythm games ever made.
