Let us try to shift our attention away from the usual sports or role playing game for the meantime. One game that has caught my attention on the Playstation 2 series is that of Guitar Hero, a journey towards how artists and musicians bring their talent by humming the different beats known today.
True, Guitar Hero is not the common game that a regular gamer would consider purchasing and playing when he gets the chance. It is similar to that of the usual dance pads we see in the arcades today where certain steps and beats should be hit at the right moment to get good scores and advance to the next level. In Guitar Hero, the steps are assigned in the different buttons from beginner to the advanced levels. The easy mode uses only three buttons to hit at the right moment and consequently adds another button as a player wants to shift to the harder levels.
The objective is to get a high rating on the meter to which certain rewards and points are awarded for every successful gig. Guitar Hero may not have the usual opponent and combat modes, but overall, it is entertaining especially for the people who love music and tunes coming from different bands both present and past.
