I recently purchased Guitar Hero II for Sony PS2 and I absolutely love it! I had heard so much about the first Guitar Hero game from many of my friends, and wanted to try it for a very long time. I play guitar in "real life" so I thought it would be similar. In some respects it is, however, it is truly a challenge learning how to hit all the proper buttons as the songs are playing!
I started out on Easy mode, and as that got easier for me I moved on to Medium mode, which took me about one full day to achieve. I am now on Hard mode (and there is also a mode called Expert). I'm not sure how long it will take me to achieve "stardom" on Hard level. It is very challenging.
The graphics of the game are great, the artwork is fantastic and the overall design and layout of the game "Rock Out"! This was truly a worthwhile purchase.
I did not purchase the game at full price, I purchased it used on eBay, however, I surely would have purchased it new if I was aware of how great it was going to be! It is worth every penny.
If anyone out there has been considering purchasing this game, do it. It is so much fun, and is a great challenge.
