Summary: All of the GH games are pretty fun but this is the worst of the lot. You only get 30 songs and many of them were unknown to me or just not that fun to play (the highlight, though, was definitely Iron Maiden's "Wrathchild"). When you get to the end of the game, the big finale is "Play with Me" by Extreme... Huh? That's the best you could do? Maybe I'm just too young to appreciate some of these tracks like someone else might.
Summary: This is targeted toward those who have played Guitar Hero games before. If you haven't, then start elsewhere (you need a guitar anywhere...don't use Dualshock). I'd recommend Guitar Hero III or World Tour (the latter preferably, it's easier than GHIII and supports drums & vocals). I think I'll do the opposite of what's usually done and start with the bottom line. 1.) It's too easy. 2.) It's too short. 3.) It has a lazy game design. 4.
Summary: I bought this game after having played the Guitar Hero World Tour for PS2. I was really excited about the 80's version, being a diehard 80's chick, but I must admit, it was really hard to accept the much lower graphic quality of the 80's version compared to the World Tour version. It is like night and day. Plus, these are covers, not the original songs - so overall, a little disappointing. If you haven't played World Tour yet, you'll probably be perfectly happy.
Summary: I have played this game on my friends PS2 and wanted to get it for my backward compatible PS3. I am sorry to say I have not been able to play it because apparently no guitar will work with any PS2 guitar hero game on the PS3 even though the game loads just fine! If anyone finds a fix for this..
Summary: After two succesfull Guitar Hero games,"Guitar Hero Encore : Rock The 80s" was released in July 2007 exclusively for the PS2 and receved mixed reactions from fans of the serie.This Guitar Hero title seems to be too much of a "cash grab" for fans of the series as the other games in the serie had more songs,8 levels of difficulty(im not talking easy,medium,hard and veteran here) and "Rock The 80s" has only six with only 30 songs and limited unlockables.
