What It Is

What It Is

The insanely successful rock video game is back with 85 master tracks featuring some of today's most popular artists and classic rock legends. All 85 tracks are available from the beginning of the game and include songs from such artists as David Bowie, Coldplay, Tom Petty, blink-182, Billy Idol, Kings of Leon, The White Stripes, Nirvana, Santana, Motley Crue, Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and many more.

For anyone unfamiliar with Guitar Hero, if such a person reading this column exists; the game is a collection of rock songs from various artists and the player at home is asked to "play" along with these songs using instrument controllers rather than the game system's standard controller. You play along by hitting the correct beat (button on the controller) at the correct time as denoted by the song's rhythm and a music bar visualizer on the TV screen.
