Guitar Hero – Second Opinion

Cool as it may be to have a tool to be a groupie-getter, there is another point to Guitar Hero—it's also about making music.

Guitar Hero – Review

I don't usually like music games. They don't do much for me. I don't like singing along doing karaoke, I don't like sweating and stepping on arrows in Dance Dance Revolution, and I don't like anything that uses bongos… but I like Guitar Hero. Why do I like Guitar Hero when so many other audio-based games leave me cold? In this case, it's all about the controller.

Guitar Hero

Game Description: Guitar Hero makes you the star of your very own rock band. Using button combinations, sustains and the whammy bar, players will experience the essence of what it’s like to actually play some of the coolest rock songs of all time. The song list includes hits from Jimi Hendrix, Boston, Megadeath and many more. Players can choose from multiple rock characters and play at concert venues that grow in size as your rock career progresses.

EyeToy: Antigrav – Review

Let's face it: every sci-fi geek's most fervent wish is that someday, some genius will invent Star Trek's holodeck in real life. What could be better than going into a sterile little room and suddenly finding yourself at the peak of Mount Everest looking out at the roof of the world? Or better yet, slinging a mean six-iron in the old West with tumbleweeds in the background?

Amplitude – Second Opinion

I don't think I'll disagree when Erin says that Amplitude sounds an awful lot like top-forty radio. Whether that's a good thing or a bad thing probably depends heavily on individual tastes. Still, Frequency's more underground selection of music did give it a big advantage. Frequency was as much about discovering a song as it was about playing it.

Amplitude

Game Description: Developed exclusively for the PlayStation 2 by Harmonix Music Systems, Amplitude is a fast-paced rhythm-action game that allows players to test their skills in mixing and remixing hit songs by shooting musical notes in various vibrant musical environments in both off- and online gameplay. Via the Network Adaptor (Ethernet/modem), the gateway into the world of online gaming, Amplitude provides a unique, one-of-a-kind online musical forum for players of all skill levels to compete and collaborate with more than 25 songs.

Amplitude – Review

The more I play Amplitude, the less inclined I am to simply call it a music game without adding a hefty disclaimer. Both Amplitude and its predecessor, Frequency, take the player to another more intimate level of the music creation process.
