This was the first game I ever played on an Xbox 360. It belonged to my roommate, and when he moved out I bought a 360 Elite that week just to play this. Guitar Hero is the first of its kind and is the most fun interactive game on Xbox 360. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up. There is DLC like Foo Fighters Pack and My Chemical Romance which are both awesome. The achievements aren't too difficult, although some really call for a VERY high skill level, but many are quite easy. The tutorial is great and really gets you started, and play through is fantastic. You'll play your favorite songs over and over again and will never get bored.

This is simply a feel good game that lets you rock out to songs that you've always wished you had the skill [without ever practicing] to rock out to. This game has way more and better songs than its follow-up guitar hero 3, which changed development teams. The main difference between the two versions is than in this one [GH2] - Its about realizing you rock, and in the next [GH3] - Its about how much you don't suck. Quite a theme change and sadly GH3 jus doesn't 'beat' its predecessor.
I reviewed this on the PS2 already. Ill go through the basics though. Not as mnay good songs as with GH1 or GH3 (yeah i played this one after GH3). But it has several great songs and a few good ones. the GH controller i used was the one for GH3, so it worked okay with GHII, but im guessing that the one made for GH2 works a little better. The graphics are improved and there are a few more songs on this version. other than that, its the same as the PS2 version.
