Trivia

Many references to This Is Spinal Tap (1984) are made: - In the sound option menu, everything can be turned up to 11. - A loading screen urges you never to "just jam" when the crowd wants an encore and you're out of songs. - After playing "Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You Tonight", the drummer spontaneously combusts (but only if you play in Nilbog High, the first venue).

No drummers were hurt in the making of the game. Except that one. He had it coming. (PlayStation 2 version) See more »

Fun Fun Fun!
11 April 2007 | by KezzizzleSee all my reviews

Well, this certainly is a VERY fun game! If you're tired of your shoot 'em ups, racing, sports or platform games, then give this one a whirl...it's sooo different to anything else out there. The whole idea of using a guitar and NOT the controller is probably the best part. Being a young whipper snapper, I haven't heard of a lot of the songs that are on this game, but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy playing them. Each of these songs have really good solo pieces in them that are so much fun to play...well, if you can play them that is! lol.

There are 4 different difficulty settings for this game; Easy, Medium, Hard and Expert. I am currently trying to complete the Medium difficulty having completed the Easy one with 5/5 stars for all 35 songs. Once you're in Medium, you really do start to see a difference in difficulty. I'm female, so my hands aren't that big, and I do sometimes struggle to hit all the notes, especially when i'm using my little finger and it's moving faster than it ever has done before! I have had a sneaky go at some of the songs on Expert and Hard, and I don;t think i'm going to even attempt to try them. They look impossible, but I suppose if you have the patience, and you're hardcore, then those difficulties are your sort of thing! As a whole, it's a simple game; just hitting notes as they appear on the screen, making the song sound awesome. But believe me, this game is not as easy as it looks...but it as fun as it looks :)
