Supreme Commander Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: The problem comes when there are a fair number of units on the screen—and some times even when there’s not. The frame rate varies wildly in some scenes, which is understandable considering all that’s taking place, but far from forgivable when it’s more than a cosmetic issue. Frame-rate sputters also affect your ability to target a unit or enter a command: When it’s one of yours, it slows down your response time by making it difficult to initiate the simplest action; when...

Guitar Hero II

Strategy Informer
11 February 2008
  • Conclusion: Have flying fingers? Love rocking out? Need a game that will never get old? With over 70 songs, four difficulty settings, system multiplayer, and a nifty guitar controller, getting bored with this game would require some serious effort. Glad to have played it, and there’s nothing quite like destroying your friends while playing Jordan on expert, before losing a moment later because nobody can play that song.

Guitar Hero II

True achievements
22 January 2008
  • Conclusion: And the Guitar Hero series has lost some of its appeal, not only ripping off Rock Band's implementation of vocals and drums in a music game but heavily catering to real-life rock stars such as Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Hendrix, Aerosmith, and more (I thought the point of the game was to BE a rock star, not somebody's opening act). So enjoy a classic rhythm game, and good luck with Jordan.

Guitar Hero II Review

VideoGamer.com
12 December 2007
  • Excerpt: Rhythm based games have been around for a long time, and peripherals aren't a new thing, but there's something about Guitar Hero that simply works, no matter what your age (within limits) or musical tastes. The fact that you need zero musical talent (something I've proved) is great, and after a few hours you'll think you really can play the guitar, even though in reality you're only pressing a few buttons in time to music.

Guitar Hero II (Xbox 360) Review

411mania.com
17 November 2007
  • Excerpt: My musical abilities are zilch. I can’t play any instruments or even know how to hold drum sticks. Hell, I even have trouble tapping my foot along to a song. I thought I was a lost cause. That was until RedOctane saved me from the darkness and brought Guitar Hero II to the Xbox 360. I didn’t know how awesome of a rocker I actually was! That being said, Guitar Hero II is not just a video game, it’s an experience. When a game like this comes along, it captures an audience.
