View Full Version : Guitar Hero

I am in love with this game. It's possibly one of the most addictive, well-tuned and just plain fun rhythm action games ever released.

I'm getting slowly but surely better at medium mode, 5-ing a few songs and hopefully being able to finish off the last few painful ones right at the end.

Here's the track list - note, none of the tracks are the actual bands. Some are better covers than the others, for example, Cochise is really good, whereas Killer Queen is really bad. Not so bad you can't play it, but that just ain't Freddy Mercury.

Audioslave "Cochise"
Boston "More than a Feeling"
Bad Religion "Infected"
Black Sabbath "Iron Man"
Blue Oyster Cult "Godzilla"
David Bowie "Ziggy Stardust"
Burning Brides "Heart Full of Black"
Cream "Crossroads"
Deep Purple "Smoke on the Water"
The Donnas "Take It Off"
The Exies "Hey You"
Franz Ferdinand "Take Me Out"
Helmet "Unsung"
Incubus "Stellar"
Joan Jett and the Blackhearts "I Love Rock 'n' Roll"
Judas Priest "You Got Another Thing Comin"
Jimi Hendrix "Spanish Castle Magic"
Megadeth "Symphony of Destruction"
Motorhead "Ace Of Spades"
Pantera "Cowboys from Hell"
Ozzy Osbourne "Bark at the Moon"
Queen "Killer Queen"
Queens of the Stone Age "No One Knows"
The Ramones "I Wanna Be Sedated"
Red Hot Chili Peppers "Higher Ground"
Stevie Ray Vaughan "Texas Flood"
Sum 41 "Fat Lip"
White Zombie "Thunderkiss '65"
The Edgar Winter Group "Frankenstein"
ZZ Top "Sharp Dressed Man"
Acro-Brats "Call Out"
Anarchy Club "Behind the Mask"
Artillery "The Breaking Wheel"
Count Zero "Sail Your Ship By"
Freezepop "Get Ready 2 Rokk"
Honest Bob and the Factory-to-Dealer Incentives "Hey"
Made In Mexico "Farewell Myth"
Monkey Steals the Peach "Theme from Guitar Hero"
The Model Sons "The Story of My Love"
Shaimus "All of This"
The Bags "Caveman Rejoice"
Din "Fly on the Wall"
Drist "Decontrol"
The Slip "Even Rats"
The Upper Crust "Eureka! I Found Love"
Graveyard BBQ "Cheat on the Church"
Black Label Society "Fire It Up"

It's just satisfying when you really nail a track. Trust me on this.

So far my favourites have been Ziggy Stardust, No One Knows (it's arguably one of the hardest in the game, but getting the solo right is amazing), Bark At The Moon, and Infected.

I just can't stop playing.

Was this the game released on the Dreamcast?

No. This game is not Guitar Freaks. This is not a game by Konami. It's by Red Octane ([Only registered and activated users can see links]). This is a brand new game.

I tried playing it while I was drunk, but it didn't work. But yeah, it's a fun game.

Right... your ass. Let's go with that shall we?
*cut to a scene of an ass playing GH*
Didn't need to see that... in any case GH is extremely addictive, and will be even more so when the 80's version comes out in the second quarter, as well as GH3 in the fourth quarter.

Wow, way to revive a year and a half old thread to make a stupid, unfunny, comment.

Topic: I love Guitar Hero. I am stuck on 5-star-ing a couple of the Hard songs ("No One Knows" and "Bark at the Moon"). About the last half of the playlist I can't get 5 stars on Expert.

might as well use this to talk about gh in general? O_o

my first game was gh2. and since then i've been wanting to get my hands on a cheap copy of part 1. (fuck ebgames for redistributing for a $40+ price tag) fuck you! >.< i'll wait for it to be 20 if i'm lucky. -_-

anyway. i loved it. i was just going in to get a mem card at bestbuy and they ahd it on display and no one was playing it. i picked it up, and tried it. i didn't know how to use it at all! lol i thought i only had to press the color buttons (that's what i called them) and dind't know i had to actually STRUM the guitar lol.

after 5 attempts on easy. i got hooked, and baught it right away. took it home. and a few months later. i can finally do hard. o_o (but i avg 3 stars on hard if i'm lucky). i "mastered" medium 5 stars on everything. (i like to unlock things).

hard is a bitch though! >.<

Yeah, the fact that they're all decent to lame cover tunes, but listed otherwise when Konami was promoting the game was a bit of a turn off, as I'm a big fan of bands like Incubus, The Slip, RHCP, Helmet, etc. But like that Elite Beat Agents, it doesn't matter too much after a while, it's the gameplay that is crazy fun.

I am actually much better than this but hell it was funny.

Guitar Hero is what introduced me to the band All That Remains. I think they're a fucking awesome band!

With Guitar Hero I obtained a new respect for Avenged Sevenfold.

They should have "Pollute the Sound" by Drist for GH3.
