Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s (Playstation 2)

Posted in: Game Reviews by Michael Durr on July 29th, 2007

(out of 5)

Michael Durr has been reviewing movies for the better part of fifteen years now. He primarily enjoys thrillers, sci-fi, animation and even a little courtroom drama. His favorite films include Escape from New York, the Goonies and anything with Alyssa Milano. When he’s not praising Kurt Russell as the greatest actor of our time or scratching his head over a David Lynch flick, he’s spending time at home in Texas with his lovely wife, Lori and his amazing son. How they put up with him is a mystery, but even Basil Rathbone doesn’t have the time to solve that one.

    Kedrix: I tacked an “other” coverage section onto the bottom of the review, using Technorati to search out other blogs that have covered GHE. I’m going to post in the admin forum about this in a minute…

    “Ooblick points out an weird thing in the EULA (end user licensing agreement) – that you can only use sanctioned controllers with the game.”

    Darn. I guess that means that I have to stop using my TAC Flying V controllers. I’m pulling the batteries out of all 3 right now! – I think not. Perhaps if the sanctioned controllers were as good in quality as some of the 3rd party controllers then there would not be a need to try using such lame tactics to promote the sanctioned controllers.

    If they make a part 4 they should add songs from the 90’s 2000 and songs that they did’nt put in the 80’s game like the ones i mentioned inmy last comment and more.It could even be a game with oldies songs like labamba,elvis and more.You can e-mail me on this comment and my last one if you like what you read or just have something to say.
