Summary: I love this game, but didn't own the ps2 version. I thought it'd be a good idea to upgrade to something more recent and get it on the psp. Another plus would be the added ease of playing with headphones.
Summary: Gitaroo Man. Gitaroo freaking Man... This game is the best music game I've ever played and is technically the "original" Guitar Hero. "Gitaroo Man Lives" is a PSP port of the largely underrated game for the PS2, "Gitaroo Man.
Gitaroo-man surely does live! In this stellar port

Summary: It disappoints me that i am the first to review this 7 year old old game..Anyway. gitaroo-man Lives! is a port of the ps2 game which was released way back in early 2002 by inis the team that later brought us the elite beat series for the ds.
Summary: I bought this on a recommendation from a friend who had been a longtime player of the PS2 Gitaroo Man, and I was not dissappointed, whatsoever. Coming to this from a history of Guitar Hero and Rock band for the past six or seven years, Gitaroo Man Lives! is a breath of fresh air.
Conclusion: I’m a huge fan of Gitaroo Man have been since it’s original release, and I’m glad it’s starting to make a name for itself. I must say the original PS2 game is quite hard – oddly enough the PSP version is a lot easier, it’s the one instance in which the analogue on the PSP is actually useful.
Summary: I owned this game for my ps2 but lost it. Now that it is available for the psp, I can take it anywhere. Overall,this game is fun,even though it is short I enjoy the music and the gameplay very much.
Summary: Anyone that missed out on this game on PS2 should pick it up on PSP. This is a beautiful example of simplistically innovative gameplay. If you play guitar or like J-Rock or even enjoy multiple genres of music in general this is the game for you.
