Gitaroo Man – Second Opinion

GameCritics.com
18 February 2013
  • Excerpt: As Brad described, Gitaroo Man features a story about the loser, his puppy-love crush, and his journey towards heroism. Corny? Is it ever, presented in the cheesiest way possible complete with silly, very-Japanese cutscenes between stages. They can be a bit of a trial for those who cant stomach moments involving frantic dialogue like that exchanged between characters in cartoons like the Powerpuff Girls or Spongebob Squarepants .

  • Excerpt: There's no denying that this game is good. That, in itself, is pretty amazing given Koei's past. What's truly astonishing about Gitaroo Man, though, is it manages to take the character-based rhythm genre to an entirely new level.

Gitaroo-Man

Into Liquid Sky
27 December 2005
  • Excerpt: Rhythm based games have always been high on the quirk factor, and for a very quirky genre they’ve done quite well. Well enough to spawn sequels like rabbits and merit localization like in Parappa the Rapper and Um Jammer Lammy . That’s all well and good, but stagnation has crept in to this genre. The gameplay has been standardized to an incredible extent, with the exception of games like Frequency .
  • Pros: Amazing gameplay, Excellent selection of songs, Eccentric story and characters, Very good “music videos” and graphics
  • Cons: Slightly on the short side, Requires more skill than the average gamer is ready to try for

Gitaroo Man – Review

GameCritics.com
2 January 2005
  • Excerpt: It's only March, and it's already been a great season for diverse gamers. For proof, we need look no further than the niche genre of music gaming. For a category of entertainment that had formerly been labeled too Japanese for western tastes, music games seem to be here to stay. It's funny to look back and see that such a thing was almost unthinkable even as recently as five years ago.

Game Over Online
18 March 2002
  • Excerpt: KOEI is a company most widely known for kicking out strategy games en masse, so the last thing this reviewer was expecting from them was an extremely entertaining music/rhythm game. KOEI has managed to not only avoid the common pitfalls of breaking into a new genre, but also manages to kick the entertainment value up a notch or two -- or three.

Hype
23 February 2008
  • Summary: Parappa har banat väg för kategorin "idiotiska musikspel" och här kommer ett till - Gitaroo Man. Gillar man lite udda spel med knapptryckningar är det en kategori att spana in.

  • Excerpt: Les potards à fond, le multi-effet relié au Marshall et la gratte en bandoulière, Gitaroo Man est fin prêt pour monter sur la scène de la PS2 et sauver le monde à coups de riffs ravageurs et de tapping monstrueux. Let's rock !
