For anyone who's slightly disappointed with this game, do not worry, you have not wasted your £60/70/whatever. I have GH 1 and 2 on the PS2 and GH 1 is actually a lot more fun to play in my opinion. There's probably only about 10 songs I enjoy playing over and over again in GH2, whereas GH1 is much more hit than miss. If you are playing GH2 and thinking, this song is getting tedious and repetative, what's wrong with me, this game is supposed to be the nuts, you're not alone. The downloads will come, and then you truely will become a guitar hero finally!

Most notably Bark at the Moon (which i'd never heard before GH1) is going to be a download, and is by far my favourite song to play, even though i'll never finish it on Expert. Damn my fat fingers.

I'm loving GH2, only song I'm after from GH1 is "Killer Queen"

That Top Gear theme is a nightmare though!

Think my top 3 tunes from GH1 are Bark at the Moon, Even Rats and probably Guitar Hero, just because it's so funny!

I don't like what they've done with the hammer ons and pull offs in GH2 either, they're a lot looser than in GH1, and sometimes i've pulled off solos and my keying has really been off on my left hand.

In fact i've just realised that i sound like i hate GH2! I don't - I just preferred the songs and feel of GH1. But at least they kept that hilarious rocking Bassist in the band!

If you did, how would you know without the TV! :D

minor flaw in my path to rock stardom :cool: That and the wife isnt taking kindly to me calling her my Groupy-Chick and telling her to adore me unswervingly!

More practice needed :devil:

I've played it for the last 2 hours and thoroughly enjoyed it. I got well and truly humiliated on medium at first and had to go for easy to get used to it despite doing the training. I still am struggling with the song "You really got me" as the key changes are really close together. Tried one song on medium again and managed 3 stars but I just think my timing is appalling at the moment.

Must be said it is fun though. Rock on :clap:

Ha nice name, first one I created today when gf was playing too was 'New York 2' . . I can get on average 3/4 stars on Easy some 5 Stars, gonna need a lot! of practise at this before moving up levels.

'you really got me' is annoying me too the very start of song i just can't get timing right. Really enjoying this though, amazing game and the price paid for this is but a distant memory now, well worth every penny.
