I am not sure if buying this game is going to be a good or a bad idea. For sure I will be able to get back at my noisy neighbors and drive them insane with some musical prodigies, but the risk of not being able to leave the house ever again is just too high.
Guitar Hero can be very simplistically described as a guitar karaoke game where you get to play on a Gibson SG based guitar peripheral, with the all important whammy bar. You canít really rock properly without a whammy bar.
IGN has a really good review of the game, written by a guitarist, which analyzes it from the perspective of a musician. The overall rating is 9.2. As a former guitarist in a punk band, I canít wait to put my hands on this game.
You can preorder the Guitar Hero from RedOctane for $69.99. The price also includes a guitar controller which I believe to be essential to fully experience this game (you can also play the game using the regular PS2 controllers). You can add a second guitar for $39.99.
