    Lunshine's Guitar Hero 2 (360)

    Gamelog #2


    Even after playing Guitar Hero 2 for an extended period of time (somewhere around 4 hours), I still found it extremely fun and interesting to play. The only criticism I have is that if you cannot defeat a particular song, playing that song over and over again can get a bit tedious and, as a result, the player might give up for awhile. I, however, was determined to reach the end of the game and was ecstatic about sometimes barely making it through a final song.


    I believe one of the good design elements of this game is the guitar controller and the steep learning curve of the game. If you happen to be really good at Guitar Hero, you will soon find that many of your gaming friends will worship you like a god. This, in a way, is a glory reward through games as systems of rewards. The steep learning curve is such that mastering the game is a very difficult thing to do - and very few have actuallly succeeded.

    In more detail regarding the guitar controller, this controller actually makes you feel like you are playing in an actual concert in front of the crowd. When you succeed, the video crowd cheers for you and if you fail, the crowd boos you off the stage. The controller and star power function allows you to enter the magic circle more quickly and immediately be entranced by the game. When the star power is deployed, your character begins to do amazing power-ups on stage and it is easier for you to maintain your "life." Surprisingly, this also allowed me to strategize throughout the game and determine how I could effectively make it through a difficult song. I had to be very careful where to deploy my star power.

    In Guitar Hero 2 the player uses a guitar controller to press a series of colored buttons and strum the guitar to succeed in playing many popular songs. The player can also activate "star power" to gain life and essentially "power up" their characters. Throughout the game, you acquire songs and earn money which you can use to buy new characters, outfits, guitars, and songs.


    My emotional state while playing Guitar Hero 2 was extreme excitement. I thought the game was extremely fun and it was easy to get into the songs. It was also a great game to play with friends and I think the replay value is very high. I had a lot of social interactions while playing this game. During my first time playing this game, I actually was invited by my friends. I was very intimidated by the game and I was stubborn to try to learn. However, after I got past a few songs on easy, I quickly found how addicting the game could be. I would say I have always had the most fun playing this game with friends.

    Guitar Hero 2 was fun to play mainly because the songs provide and pretty steep learning curve in playing all of the songs. I found it was most fun to get to the end of the game and try to learn the more complicated hammer-on series. The song list of the game is also very addicting, which also greatly improves the gameplay. Guitar Hero 2 definitely makes you feel like a rock star when playing it.
