X06: Guitar Heroes 2 gameplay

X06: Guitar Heroes 2 gameplay

SnakeX is back with lots of videos! Let's start with Guitar Heroes 2 and this excellent quality video but with a very slight but noticeable sound delay. We are using a brand new encoding system with this new camcorder so it will take some time before we are confident with the whole encoding, sorry about that.
Update: Fixed version online.

It really should be wireless- but oh well.

I don't think MS are even letting any third parties develop wireless controllers of any sort yet.

Maybe now would be a good time to do the opposite then :P I'm really looking forward to this game, it's addicting and fun

That guy totally knows how to play guitar and the left hand moving across the fretboard looks pretty legit to what the real thing would be like. I'm all over this game.

The controller is wired.

coming from a metal player, i can say that this looks legit. i cant help but laugh whenever i see one of these vids though lol. but it does look fun. id like to check it out to see how real it feels.

any musicians try GH1 yet? hows it feel?

I play guitar and the controller is very light and of course has a 'cheaper' feel to a real guitar than you're used to, but its still an incredibly fun game... if anything it actually helps you practise rhythm and coordination, and it feels quite realistic in an unrealistic way... bah its hard to explain you just have to try it lol.

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Not sure if they've improved much these days. (35 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite A lot of Japanese made games were guilty of that whenever voice acting become possible. I mean, aye, it was always cheese, but you tolerated it more back then (35 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The voice acting was always regarded as pure cheese. (37 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah, and the voice acting, something which back then, was great. Today it's just pure cheese. Sound design is often neglected to be mentioned over visuals when talking about progress in games. (38 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX This is what Shenmue combat looks like. It's not heavily based on QTE despite the game making QTE a buzzword: [url] (38 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah a lot of it was very clunky. It did often boil down to QTE's to resolve "disputes" and chases, if I recall correctly. Mad how a lot of games to this day still do that. (39 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Still one of the better parts of the game. And it's not a bad game, but it's definitely a "good for its time" game.. which means.. maybe not actually good :D (40 minutes ago)
