Guitar Hero II review

  • Feigning guitar mastery
  • Shredding with a friend
  • Looking like a mini James Hetfield
  • No online play
  • No wireless controller
  • Coughing up $60 for guitar #2

That same-screen multiplayer is actually enough; we were disappointed not to see online play, but frankly, there's something to be said for talking trash in the same room and/or elbowing your opponent in the ribs while they try to solo.

Buy this game. The content is plentiful (and crucially, more is en route) and the fantasy experience is pure rock and roll excess. Your personal stairway to heaven awaits.
