The award-winning series continues to rock on!

  • Summary: Parents need to know there is no violence, sexual content, or swearing in this game, though some lyrics might offend including Accept's "Balls to the Wall" and the Vapors' "(I Think I'm) Turning Japanese." This a fun game for families to explore together because everyone who likes music will enjoy these music/rhythm games.

  • Excerpt: To some, the 80s aren’t really the greatest time in music history, but there are still plenty of good songs to be found.

  • Summary: The game uses essentially the same engine and many of the same rock band environments as you've seen in GHII, though some of the decorations and posters have been changed to reflect the time period, which is a nice touch. For those players who already own GH I or II, the game allows you to use your Guitar controllers and is fully compatible with most third party controllers as well.

Guitar Hero: Rock the 80s

  • Excerpt: It's time to dig out your Gibson-shaped guitar peripheral, tape up your fingers and get ready to rock out in your living room once again. This time, however, you might want to grow your hair, put on a bandanna, buy some fingerless gloves and maybe dig out something with shoulder pads. Yup, Guitar Hero's doing it eighties style. Time to remember the bad old days.

Guitar Hero: Rocks The 80s

  • Excerpt: Music and games, two extremely popular and entertaining pastimes that if were to ever bond together, would bond like a 99 flake in an ice cream cone. And whilst we’ve only really started to see this bond over here for the last year or so, across the waters in Japan these ‘rhythm’ games are just as common as the average first person shooter you’d so commonly find in the Western world.

Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s

The Gamers Temple
28 August 2007
  • Excerpt: Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s is a game that's likely to elicit a lot of mixed emotions in Guitar Hero fans. On the one hand it's a new Guitar Hero game based on Guitar Hero II, and many gamers sure do love their Guitar Hero games. On the other hand, it feels like an incomplete and easier version of Guitar Hero II. Whether or not you'll be pleased with Rocks the 80s will depend a lot on your expectations for the game.

Guitar Hero Encore: Flops the 80s

TotalPlayStation.com
13 August 2007
  • Conclusion: Here's a dumb idea: rushing an expansion by regurgitating nearly all of the original game and delivering minimal compelling content. Here's a dumber one: charing $10 more than normal so unsuspecting consumers will pad your fiscal third quarter.
