Who would have thought that strumming a guitar or pounding on a drum kit within the confines of game could be SO MUCH FUN! Right now I can hardly type after a gig that included Bon Jovi’s ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’ with an encore of Motorheads ‘Overkill’, complete with never ending cymbal and snare drum pounding, sweat inducing drum solo! And what a workout and stressbuster.
For the film, I have had to check out a number of other more traditional games too, like ‘Burnout’ and ‘Halo’, both of which were a lot of fun, and more like movies when played up on the video projector. But for sheer fun, nothing has come close to Guitar Hero… Right. Pass me my plectrum…
Onwards and upwards!
